Sally Hansen Insta-Dri “In a Flurry” Swatch & Review
Check out the flaky duochrome shimmer purple flash goodness AFTER THE JUMP!!
“In A Flurry” is a lacquer offering a blackened-gray-teal base packed with flaky duo-chrome bits that shine dark green, blue, teal, silver, gold, yellow plus a pop of vivid purple shimmer throughout it all! PLUS? PLUSPLUS! an over-all, very subtle, duo-chrome sheen that emphasizes the green/teal leanings. It really is a flurry!!
While I have had nothing but pretty decent experience with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in the past (co-bolt blue is <3), it has been YEARS since I purchased one and I think the quality of the brush has gone down substantially since my last trip into this line.
What “IAF” greeted me with was not just a mop but a mop that was wide and WARPED (the actual full length of the brush, not just the tips) but also the jagged ends.
The formula also surprised me. I expected something fairly thick and opaque, however that is not the case with this polish. Thinner than anticipated, almost runny.
On this note it does dry decently fast… but with coats that are thin and polish of these properties (fleck, flake) is that really that unusual or special? I don’t think so.
3-4 coats to reach full opacity and this polish’s full potential.
(flash and full sun)
This one was so hard to photograph!! Or perhaps I think it was the time of day that I took the pictures because there looks to be so. much. washout… I apologize for the sub-par pictures.
BUT one thing I can tell you which is both awesome and makes it easy is that this is a nail polish that totally transfers from bottle to nail. What you see in the bottle is what you are going to get on your nails. Love when that happens!
“In A Flurry” is a limited edition Sally Hansen polish you can find at various drugstores on their Fall 2012 display.
The display I picked this one up featured slots for only TWO polishes per color. While there is more in the back (I’m sure) I grabbed both “Flurry”s that I saw. (If you frequent the Walgreens across from LeeLee’s in Chandler, AZ- IT WAS ME. MUAHAHAHAHA)
So this would be another rare instance of a polish that I bought back-ups of. I don’t know if it’s because it’s so pretty or because it’s such an awesome, unusual home-run for the Insta-dry line…
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri “In A Flurry” retails for $4.99 (but there are some awesome deals such as many drugstores currently featuring a buy one get one 50% sale).
