I didn't realise that 'Clearly quick' was actually a shade and not a topcoat so have been using it as a topcoat since I bought it! Quick drying and my nails look super glossy after applying. I mainly paint my toe nails and I find I'm good for at least a week, usually around 2 weeks or so without any chipping.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish Review
I stumbled across this one day in Chemist Warehouse (during covid) when I didn't want to sit in a salon and get my toes done, so thought this would be a great option.
I was very surprised at how quickly it dried and I was able to add a second coat easily. I've found that one good coat can be all you need (if done right) but a second coat seals the deal!
I've since done my fingernails too and with the affordable pricing, I purchased some awesome summer colours!
Tips: Either give the first coat a good amount of time to dry fully before the second or simply don't faff with the second coat meaning, get a good amount of polish and don't over-brush 3-4 strokes max :)
I picked this up for less than $10 from Chemist Warehouse. The bottle seems bigger than average, but that could be the way it is shaped. Nice flat brush that distributes polish well. I wouldn't say it is instant drying, but it does dry quicker than what I am used to. I usually apply two coats followed by a clear top coat, but the way this one deposited on my nails, I only needed one coat. After one week, my nails still look good, with slight chipping at the bottom(?).
Tips: Use a top coat for that extra oomoh.
This is sold as insta dry. Mmmm nope thin coat amd still after over a minute I wiped off with a tissue. However they should brand as long wearing with hardner. I am used to doing two coats at night, washing my haor the following day and having chips. Not this one. Day two and looks like I just applied. So I do like it, two coats drys to the colour in the bottle (single coat very light) I have making mauve #183 and will use again amd recommend as a longer wearing but defo not a insta dry.
Doesn't dry that quick as branded and advertised, I still managed to ruin my nails whilst waiting. Wasn't really impressed and honestly works the same as other polishes, the formula is also on the thick side.
The polish comes in a rather large and generously sized bottle with a stunning wine coloured lid. I think the packaging is really unique and looks nice. The brush on this is incredibly wide which makes application quite difficult for smaller nails. My housemates and I tried this over the weekend and we all found it was very messy and difficult to apply the polish due to the large brush size. The polish also pools heavily on the brush and even after swiping the brush clean several times, there still tends to be excessive product on the brush which adds to the messy and and awkward application factor. The polish itself is also extremely thick, which had me puzzled for how it would dry quickly as thicker polish always takes longer. Unfortunately, the thick consistency and large brush meant I ended up with an overly thick coat of polish on most of my nails which of course didn't dry properly at all and had that sticky tacky feeling for a long while afterwards. On the nails where I managed to get more of a better application, this still didn't not dry any quicker than regular nail polish and certainly didn't dry in 60 seconds. The product just seems to thick to dry that quickly. The colour itself is a stunning dark wine colour that is quite glossy. I found however, that despite having the top coat built in, this probably needs a top coat, as without it it only took about three days for it to chip. However, this didn't stain my finger nails unlike other dark colours and I found the polish easy enough to remove. I have mixed feelings about this as the end result looked nice so I would use it again as part of my collection but this was such a mare to apply and the results weren't really worth the hassle. Given the high RRP of this product and that it didn't try quickly and the brush was awkwardly large, I probably wouldn't recommend anyone goes out to purchase this.
