Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color in Pronto Purple Review

This is one beautiful dark purple nail polish that comes in 9.17ml from Sally Hansen and to be honest I have never try Sally Hansen. This product promises to:

“One Stroke. One Coat. Done. Dries in 60 seconds! Nail color covers in just one coat, brilliantly. The Perfectionist Brush™ contours to any nail, so color always glides on precisely, quickly, flawlessly. And, the exclusive FlexiglassComplex combines beautiful, brilliant shine and super strong wear. So simple, so Sally. Available in 16 irresistible shades!”

Sally Hansen is made in USA and the life span of this product could last up to 30 months upon opening it.

Here are the ingredients and it says,’one coat, one stroke for quick and easy application’. Really? Let’s see.

The Perfectionist brush truly different from other ordinary nail polishes. The brush doesn’t look as stiff and plastic, looks like makeup brush! Flat with the corners slightly rounded.

To start of with base coat of The Face Shop.

Followed by applying Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. The Perfectionist brush picks up lots of the nail color, therefore got to be careful with it even if you slide off some of the excess back into the bottle. The rounded corners of the brush makes the application less messy because it follows the contour of your nails. One coat without sliding off the excess can be too much and sometimes even you slide it off it can still be too much. It really depends. I slide off the excess more because if its too much, my nails are all messed up. I really like that it dries off so quickly and it’s really within a minute, color pigmentation shows up very well and finished off glossy. This purple  can very elegant and sexy, comes with red undertone with it.

Though Sally Hansen Instra-dri  provides gloss finish, I prefer to finish off with top coat of The Face Shop. It gives extra shine and gloss to it.

I really like this nail polish and I highly recommend for those who wants your nail polish to dry fast. I love the brush too, less messier than ever just got to practice more with it. This range from Sally Hansen is mostly available in Watsons and Guardian with retail price of MYR27.90. This product was sent to me for review purposes via Yuberactive.


  • Pigmented
  • Rounded corner and softer brush
  • Dries within a minute


  • Brush picks up too much liquid at once
  • Doesn’t really finish off with one stroke
