60 second magic!

I was browsing Target and was pulled in by a display for Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail polish and decided to give it a try. I painted my toes and really liked the brush it was wide and thin making application a snap.

Last night I decided to give the 60 second drying a real test and paint my nails right before bed.  A few strokes later I am done and I decide to do the unthinkable and touch my just polished nail and it was dry! I woke up this morning my nails look great not a single smudge. Sally Hansen I think I love you, can’t wait to get more colors!
