Ever since my obsession with Chartreuse Chase, I vowed to give a little more attention to the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri line, so I was thrilled to receive these three polishes to review.
In July, Sally Hansen will be adding 6 street inspired Insta-Dri polishes. From the press release: Borrowing from the city-cool of graffiti tags and street art, these six new shades are tailored for women with an independent spirit and a unique style all their own. Right on!
I got to play around with three: Vandal Eyes (Carolina blue), Tag, Ur It! (white creme), and Quick Brick (bright cherry red). I so much fun playing with these polishes. They were all opaque in two or three coats and I really like the wider brush.
I am forever making nail polish goals. That sounds weird, I’ll give you an example. One of my biggest polish goals is to attempt more nail art – and to share my successes & failures with you guys. It’s the failures part that’s terrifying to me. I’m a super perfectionist, so it’s a bit challenging. My “nail art” to date has been VERY basic: polka dots (election day, Dana Volmer), alternating colors: Britney Spears, Neon Skittles, and a my favorite: Blackfish. So, I thought it’d be fun to try and step out of my comfort zone just a little for the 4th of July.
The Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polishes retail for 4.99 for .31 oz. These particular polishes will be available beginning in July at drugstores and mass retailers (think: CVS, Walgreens, & Ulta). I haven’t seen these pretties anywhere yet, but if you have I’d love to know where you spotted them!
Take a peek below for swatches + reviews of all three polishes and some attempts at nail art. Let me know your favorite, I still haven’t decided which I’ll choose for the 4th! For more ideas, check out the related posts – I’ve included links to a few of Alli’s mega-patriotic posts.

Oh my gosh y’all. I am so tired. After a night out with the bestie on Friday my phone rang at 7:30 on Saturday morning. I rolled over and saw it was the boy calling. He was in Wilmington playing in a golf tournament and wanted to know if I wanted to meet him in […] Continue reading →
As of Sunday I am a year older. Woohoo! I had a lovely weekend with friends and family though the main even was earlier in the week when the boy and I went to see Matt Nathanson, The Fray and Train on the Picasso at the Wheel tour. We had the best time. Anyhow. Orly Bubbly […] Continue reading →
I love this manicure SO MUCH! essie Chillato was the definite stand out to me from the essie Peach Side Babe collection. That being said I wanted to wear Chillato but I also wanted to use my (not so new anymore…) dotting tools. essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low is the perfect complement to Chillato. The […] Continue reading →
I like to call this kind of manicure the lazy girl’s way to fix a chipping mani. The inspiration for this manicure came from a picture in a recent Mark catalog. I was already wearing essie Pret-A-Surfer and really love the color. Unfortunately some fairly aggressive gardening didn’t do my manicure any good and I […] Continue reading →
Oh hey. It’s Alli. Back with another manicure that involves polka dots! I’ve always had a thing for polka dots but ever since I ordered a new set of dotting tools from Amazon I’ve been going a bit polka dot crazy. For this manicure I really wanted the polka dots to look like they were […] Continue reading →
It’s no secret I’m totally swooning over Orly Key Lime Twist. Because of that Key Lime Twist has spent a lot of time on my nails. But, I got a new set of dotting tools and I was itching to give them a go. And that’s how this manicure happened. Because Key Lime Twist is […] Continue reading →
Flash tattoos. The trend now that the weather is getting warmer that I can’t seem to get away from! While I like the idea of flash tattoos they’re not exactly practical for everyday life. So I decided to take the idea of flash tattoos and turn it into a manicure. Most of the flash tattoo […] Continue reading →
A couple of months ago I was in Old Navy stocking up on tank tops. As I was heading to the register I saw the cutest navy dress with white polka dots and it came home with me. Even though it was a total impulse purchase the dress has turned out to be a great, easy […] Continue reading →
I’ve been getting back into nail art recently. I did a manicure inspired by a scarf from Handpicked. I also did a manicure inspired by some Marc Jacobs nail art. This manicure wasn’t inspired by a thing but a season; spring. To say the least I have a definite case of spring fever. Baseball is […] Continue reading →
