Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fall 2013 Selected Swatches

*press sample*

Hey guys!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Each new week means I'm that much closer to having my baby and I'm getting more and more nervous and excited! I have a little less than 4 weeks to go!

Anyway, I have half of Sally Hansen's latest Insta-Dri collection for fall to show you today. I have always loved the Insta-Dri line so I am excited for these!

First is Pink Fast. This is a metallic pink foil in one easy coat. Love how bright this one is!

No S-pear Time is a light olive green...sort of a mix between a metallic and a foil. I can't say that I have a green quite like this one...very pretty. This is 2 coats.

Next up is Chop Chop Copper. This is the enigma of the collection for me...actually the entire Insta-Dri line. We all know that these are great for stamping because they are nearly one coaters with a slightly thicker formula. However, Chop Chop Copper is SUPER thin. One coat could be a shimmer top coat over another color. Below is 4 coats. I definitely think the color is gorgeous, I just found it strange that the formula was so different from what the rest of the Insta-Dri line is all about. Check out the pink shimmer/glitter in here! Makes it very sparkly!

And the final polish from this half of the collection is Red-io Active. This is 2 coats and it practically glows! This is a bright red shimmer with an orange undertone that makes it really stand out. Lovely!

I hope to get the other half of this collection soon because I definitely am happy with these all of these shades!

Have any of you spotted these in stores yet?

    1. I agree! Found the other half today and they are equally as pretty!

  4. Wow, these are so pretty! I think my favorite is No S-pear Time - very unique. Chop Chop Copper reminds me a bit of Butter London Scuppered. I have a couple of the Insta-Dri line that have names in English and French and were marked way down, that have very thin, watery formulas. One is a blue one, and the other is something Grape...very strange because like you said, this line is mostly one-coaters!

    1. Interesting! I definitely like this line for it's one coat status!

  5. I just got Pink Fast and it is gorgeous. I want to get Jet Set Jade and Redio Active and possibly Quick Jeanius.
