I’m in love with Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Top Coat

I never EVER have the time to let my nail polish dry, so I’m always on the look out for products that speed the process up. I picked up Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri - and I’m in love! It dries my polish in minutes! (It says 30 seconds, but that’s not true at all). Give it like 5-10 minutes and your nails will be completely dry.

And that’s not the best part. It’s also anti-chip, so your polish will look amazing for much longer! I painted my nails on Monday – and today there’s not one single chip! That’s quite a fete for me, I’m very hard on my nail polish. During this holiday season when you’re cooking and cleaning – and washing your hands more than usual – you can count on this product to keep your nails gorgeous!

I picked it up for under $5 at Rite Aid. You can find it at your local drug store!
