I had some spare time today so I thought I’d give my new polish a go. I took off my old polish and put on a base coat yesterday so that cut down on the time I needed.

After reading the directions, I put one coat on and let it dry. And I must say I am extremely happy with the drying time, super fast.

Then I put on a thick coat and held the magnet above it. Here’s my thumb:

And the rest of my nails:

(Who is that puppy sleeping in the back? Lol.)

I love the way these turned out but it looks more black/purple then it does any color of pink. I can honestly say that I will be adding more of these to my collection. They are so easy to do and the effect is awesome.  🙂

I completed my nails less than a week ago and, sadly, 5 of my 10 nails have already chipped and 1 broke. I’ve learned that this always happens when I use a certain top coat….

See the chipped nails? (The index finger on this hand chipped so bad that the nail broke.) And this is just on one hand. The other one looks about the same.

In my opinion, Sally Hansen Insta Dri is fine if you want your nails to dry rather quickly but not if you want your polish to last. My first chip happened the second day after my nail art was done. So sad.
Next time I will have a bit more time set aside so I can use my other top coat so it won’t chip so easily.  😦
