Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Purple Haste

i ordered the OPI Germany collection today! i remembered i had a bunch of points to use on Amazon, so i was able to get the whole collection free... doesn't get better than that :D i've been trying to decide whether or not i wanted to get the whole thing... but i love to buy the whole shebang of OPI's big collections. it sounds like shipping might be a bit slow, but since it was included in the price of purchase, i can't really complain :)

today's polish is Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Purple Haste from their new Limited Edition collection. this is one you need to pick up to appreciate... it looks like a regular old dark purple pearl, but when you look closer you realize that it is lightly interspersed with blue microglitter! it isn't loaded down with glitter and they are tiny, but they are definitely there :) the formula is awesome, two easy coats for full opacity! it dries a little dull and lumpy looking, so you'll definitely want to add a topcoat.
 
two coats Purple Haste, one coat Seche Vite.




this is my first time using the Insta-Dri line, and i'm pretty impressed. the formula is great and i liked the brush... it was nice and fat. the bristles were a bit jagged at the tips, i'm not sure if that's just this bottle or the whole line. one thing to keep in mind is that it only has .31 fl oz, rather than the standard .5! you can find these at most places that sell drugstore polishes for under $6.

tomorrow's post will have my first real attempt at a stamped mani! Happy Tuesday! Ria :)
