SALLY HANSEN® INSTA-DRI™ GETS A MAKEOVER WITH IMPROVED FORMULA AND
14 NEW FASHIONABLE, FAST-DRY COLORS

The nail polish you already love just got better! Millions of women know that Sally Hansen® Insta-Dri™ nail polish gives them a quick-drying, high-shine manicure that lasts. Now, an improved formula delivers extended wear and enhanced shine — still with the one stroke, one coat convenience that has made Insta-Dri™ a cult favorite since 2009.

Insta-Dri’s three-in-one formula combines base coat, color, and top coat in one bottle, making it even easier to have a glossy manicure in a minute. It dries in just 60 seconds, creating full-coverage color and shine without the wait.

Along with an improved formula, Insta-Dri™ also features 14 new, must-have shades that incorporate the season’s standout runway trends. Rich chocolate and champagne add cashmere-like coziness to any manicure. Or go bold with fiery tones of red and orange — three different hues allow you to turn up the intensity as much as you like. Lilac, cherry, and plum tap into fall’s purple moment, while blue and teal provide a cooling effect. Meanwhile, the season’s new neutrals (think: the inkiest black, steel gray) are the nails’ answer to Normcore. These anything-but-boring basics prove that colors don’t need to shout to stand out. And with 40 total fast-drying shades to choose from, there’s no shortage of variety.

Even the appearance of Insta-Dri™ is getting a boost. A new, sleek logo freshens up the packaging for a more contemporary style — a fitting look for a nail polish made for today’s on-the-go pace.

I was sent a sample of #370 Show Steel-er and #421 Cherry Fast. I have always loved Insta-Dri but the new formula really brings it to the next level. The brush is so easy to use even for someone like me who paints their whole finger tip in the process of painting my nails.

The swatch below is one coat! I love that one quick swipe and I have great coverage and shine and only 90 seconds of dry time. I love painted nails but rarely have the time to sit and wait for them to dry Insta-Dri is perfect for a great nail look without the wait.

Dove Challenges Women to Choose Beautiful

Wow, this film gave me goosebumps. I know I would choose the average. And it seems however a woman chooses she would feel self concious about her choice. I love this movement by Dove and their whole push to help women love themselves just as they are. I love Dove products but the company behind them makes me even more happy to purchase their products.

Dove launches Choose Beautiful
A fresh perspective on women’s relationships with their own beauty – one that truly captures women’s perspectives on a global scale, and hinges on mindfulness.

96% of women do not choose the word “beautiful” to describe the way they look. Choose Beautiful encourages women to understand that they have the power to choose to feel beautiful for themselves every day. The film was shot in five international cities, but the same concept remained: presenting women with a choice regarding the way they view themselves. Each woman had the opportunity to choose “average,” or the frequently avoided “beautiful” as their personal descriptor. Through the results of the film, Dove hopes to encourage women to reconsider the choices they make about their beauty.

Choose Beautiful will culminate at Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit in NYC (April 22-24), where Dove hopes to further a multi-dimensional discussion on beauty and self-esteem.

Dove believes that when a woman chooses beautiful, she radiates happiness and confidence that help her reach her full potential, so choose beautiful every day, and encourage every woman and girl in your life to do the same.
