Sall Hansen Insta-Dri Fall 2012, Select Swatches

A couple weeks ago I ran across the display for the new Sally Hansen Insta-Dri's for Fall 2012, and 3 colors stood out to me, Freeze!, In a Flurry and Purple Haste. These are the three darker shades in the collection, and they scream "FALL" to me :)

Left to Right: Freeze!, In a Flurry and Purple Haste.

Sally Hansen
2 coats, no top coat

Fabulous!!!! This is a super saturated glass fleck medium blue polish. It sparkles like no other glass fleck, and at times it totally looks like a foil. I love this color, and because it is so easy to apply, I will definitely be using it again.

But beware this color stains. There is a price you must pay, for a beauty like this :)

Sally Hansen
"In a Flurry"
2 coats, no top coat

Amazing!!!  Then check it out in indirect sunlight...

This is awesome!!!! Black base with a ton of chunky shimmer with duochrome qualities.   Amazing, green, gold, blue and purple flakes of shimmer! Gorgeous!!! This will be my "go-to" color for fall for a quick manicure.

Sally Hansen
"Purple Haste"
2 coats, no top coat

Can you see the blue glitter, they are really pretty! Check it out in indirect sunlight...

I love those little blue guys, LOL! This is a great purple shimmer with flecks of bright blue glitter. This great color, dries smooth and the glitter is amazing!

All 3 of these colors are amazing. Smooth, and surprisingly easy to apply! I was seriously shocked, given that fact that I usually fight with SH Insta-Dri brushes during application. These brushes were "trouble free" and the formula was great, I had no drag or pooling issues :)

You can find these at your local drug store, Target or select Bed, Bath and Beyond Stores.

Keep it Sweet!
Pin It!

These have not hit my local Rite Aide (only thing I have for 35 miles around)...but looked at the Walgreens 50 miles from me this past Tues and nope - not there either...I have been seeing Flurry and want it - now seeing these - oh gosh, the indirect lighting shots make me want all 3 of these them even more!

RE the staining - I used to get stains but now I don't even from reds and blues that others say stain on them...I hydrate my nails a ton (fav at night is Barielle Intensive Nail Renewal Oil (from Barielle direct or look for it's PRO line counterpart named something slightly different at Sally's)...then I found my base coat that works to hold down all stains - Orly Nail Armour - it's a ridge filler but I don't have ridges - but it lays down a buff shade and I always always put down 2 coats - sometimes 3 on my toes before my color goes on. Maybe give this a try and see if it's helps you.

Wow, these look really good! If I see those last two in the store I know I'll grab 'em up, lol. Thanks for swatching!

Oh so pretty! I have a hard time buying nail polishes. I prefer the "trouble free" ones lol. I have a yellow instadry one and it is so thick and goopy :(

Nice. Some times nails can be a work of art.
