I paint my nails quite a lot, maybe twice a week. God knows they aren’t the strongest or the longest but I do like to have them painted. The only thing I hate about doing my nails is the dry time, I have quite a few nail polishes that are quick drying but most of my polishes take quite a while to dry.
I have tried a reasonable amount of top coats from loads of different brands like China Glaze and Jessica to NYC and collection 2000 but none of them have ever WOW’ed me like the one I’m about to talk about.
The Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat is unquestionably the best top coat I have ever used. I was very skeptical when my sister, Georgie (very much a nail polish addict) got the nail polish for christmas. It claims to produce ‘dry to touch’ nails within 30 seconds. After I first tried it out I kept using it so I knew I had to get my own.
It really does dry any nail polish colour, I have tested out this top coat with quite a few different nail polish brands now. Even with the cheaper ones, the colour dries so quickly. I must admit I have probably left the top coat for more than 30 seconds just to be safe, but no longer than a few minutes and it works every time. It also make my nails super shiny, Ive had quite a few people ask me if I’m wearing gels just because how glossy and thick the top coat is.
I would probably still buy this product even if it was priced as high as OPI polishes but this little gem is only £5.99!!!! My nail polish stays on for at least 3 days without ANY chipping, whereas a normal nail polish for me usually wouldn’t even last a day without smudging or chipping!
Im for sure going to repurchase this when It runs out, I can’t even imagine waiting so long for my nails to dry ever again!
Let me know in the comments if YOU have ever tried this top coat and what you think of it! Hope you enjoyed, Charley.
