The best beauty tips and advice are passed on from person to person. I heard about this product from one of my aunts who swears by it and could not be happier using it.
The Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat is just that, an instant dry top coat for your nails. You use it right after painting your nails by applying two coats (even though I find that one coat does the trick), that is the first purpose.
The second purpose is the anti-chip top coat. I find that using this product, I do not have to put on a clear coat of nail polish after I paint my nails. This is most convenient because when I am in a hurry, or do not have the patience to wait for my nails to dry, I use the Insta-Dri and in about 10 minutes, I have freshly manicured nails.
I love using this product because I have a couple of nail polishes that have a matte finish without the use of a top coat. Instead of waiting around for the polish and the clear top coat to dry, I simply use this, and in a fraction of the time, I am on my way and out the door.
I have found that I can wear my nail polish for a lot longer when using the Insta-Dri than without. It definitely lives up to its name of being an anti-chip top coat. The price is a little steep, but the bottle lasts a long time, so it is worth it in the end.
