GUYS. I have put this stuff in posts before, and on a whim I finally tried the matte version for myself last week. From what I'd read on Amazon, I expected it to dry quickly and not need a top coat, but this went so above and beyond that I was floored. It really does dry instantly — and I'm not talking about being dry-but-gummy for 10 minutes like most polishes. It's really dry in a minute. I don't do my nails at home very often because of time and mess (I'm not very skilled in the DIY mani department), but this will change all that. Even though it dries quickly, you can still clean it up easily with remover, and the brush allowed even clumsy me to do a pretty precise job. Plus, the quick-dry factor means less time to smudge!
Also, I never really expect manis I do myself (even if I do apply top coat) to last very long. This stuff stays!!!! I'd chipped it a bit after a week, so I touched it up a few days ago and it still looks really good! The last thing I'll say is that the first time I used it it was kind of sticky/tacky and I wasn't sure how I felt about the formula, but after my friend and I had both used it and I shook the bottle a bit, the next time it came out WAY smoother. I just ordered some of the non-matte colors!
Promising review: "I'm in LOVE with the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line. This is the only brand I buy now. As a new mom, painting your toenails is kind of a rare luxury, so I place a high value on getting it done quickly. This polish allows me to do it fast, without sacrificing durability. I highly recommend this polish for busy adults." —KFrench
