Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fall 2012: Purple Haste - Swatch and Review
My partner and I stopped by Bed Bath and Beyond today so I could prove to him that their GIANT cosmetic section really does exist ( >.> ), and so that we could pick up a few really cheap things. We nabbed three Essies that were only $2.99 each, and I let myself get just one of the new Sally Hansens. O: Much cheaper there than at Walgreens, though.
The new Insta Dri collection is freakin gorgeous, man. I especially love this one... I mean, I don't have anything even remotely close to this! Maybe the color, but not the bits of glitter. Here are some bottle shots to give you an idea of how awesome this polish is:
It's a rich, vibrant purple shimmer with blue duochromey glitter. The glitter is small and sparse, but not too sparse, so to me this polish is pretty unique and it looks AWESOME.
Here's what I don't like though, and yeah you can probably guess what it is.
That fuckingggg brush. Insta Dri polish is notorious for having a crappy spatula brush, but I think this is the worst one I have ever encountered. It's fluffy and uneven and just makes application a pain in the ass.
Additionally, the formula on this polish was not great. It was tolerable at best, but the brush made it so much worse. It's a little runny and it kinda globs up on the sides of my nails, but I was able to coax it into looking okay-ish.
..Which is an accomplishment for me, seeing as this is the first time I've put anything on my nails in over a week! D:
Anyway, I have a few things that I might post this weekend if I have the time, but I'm still not officially back from my break. Still busy. >.< Still bleh. Sorry.
