For a quick "oh no, I need color!" king of lookThis polish is great for that moment when you realize you have a party to get to, but your nails look horrible!
It does dry really quickly. However, it is not really designed to stay for very long. Say you need to impress a new boss for a meeting, or you have a hot date, or you're meeting your significant other's parents for the first time. This is the product to have in your nail kit that you can throw on after you finish your make-up, but before you drive off. Good to have on hand for those toes when you didn't know you had to wear open-toe shoes. Otherwise, just stick to the long dry stuff. It will probably last longer.

Best nail polish!!!I was constantly at my wits end with bad nail polish and didn’t have the time to wait for it to dry. I found the insta-dry and was hooked! I can paint my nails any time of the year and it takes just moments and all ten nails and all ten toes are painted and I can get on with my day knowing I won’t have a super smudge even if I dig in my pockets for my phone. I have horses so I have to have a nail polish that can deal with barn work. I have very tough nails and they grow like crazy so keeping them looking fresh and nice and well colored puts a little bounce in my step and more cash in my pocket. 100% happy with this polish and recommend it to everyone.

Works Great!I really like this product! NEVER stop making this! I'm a nail technician and I work with polish everyday. I love that they have a nice selection of color choices, the curved brush is awesome and what I like most of all is that it only takes 1 coat to have great coverage! It makes it SO easy to paint the nails. I've used this on the toes and find that it lasts a very long time. (When using a base and top coat with it) As for chipping/peeling, I haven't experienced that. Although prepping the nail is vital for any successful mani/pedi, just cleanse the nail really well with rubbing alcohol and you're ready to start!

wonderful overallI love this stuff~! It dries fast, it covers well, it dries hardshell. There are a wide variety of colors, and I like to use the Salon Manicure glitter overcoat for an extra bit of "oomph" and it also adds strength.
One coat is enough as an undercoat for the glitter. The glitter, if in a similar hue, is subtle, but striking. It makes a statement, and its just plain fun without being too over the top.
Without glitter, I use 2 coats and it is colorful and long lasting.
Also, I absolutely LOVE the brush. Its shape and abilities assist in covering the entire nail in pretty much 2 strokes. Love it.

Dries quick, chips even quickerI purchased this product because I was drawn to the quick-dry feature of the polish, which is absolutely accurate - one swipe down the nail, one coat, done! I sealed the nails with a clear coat and was pleased.....until the first nail chipped 3 hours later. 24 hours later, all nails have chipped, some so significantly that the nail couldn't be patched, but had to be redone. I agree with the reviewer who said keeping a bottle on hand for that sudden realization you need open-toed shoes at the last minute and to stick with the long-dry stuff if you want your nails to last more that a few hours. I'm returning this product and am terribly disappointed.

Lives up to promise of fast dryLike the fact that this product dries quickly and shines nicely. However, once dry after 24 hours finding that product will leave crayon type marks on papers nails may come in contact with. Nail tips wear away very quickly. Within two days needed a fill in. Did find that using the "dries instantly" top coat did help prevent this and coat lasted a little longer. I purchased the Rapid Red. This is a beautiful color but is difficult to remove and stains nails and skin red that it comes in contact with the product on what is used to remove it. I am willing to try another color to see if it is just the red before I completely give up on product because I love the quick dry! Nice to not nick nails or get on clothes like with normal products.

I felt compelled to review this product as my experience with the product is so much better than the majority hereI felt compelled to review this product as my experience with the product is so much better than the majority of reviews here. I have been using this product since the end of 2011, and it has been nothing but a pleasure to put on, and it dries as it promises- FAST. I only use one coat. I have used it on my finger and toe nails, and never had a problem with it chipping. I actually am happy I found this product as I have had issues with the more expensive brands of nail polish and they don't even dry as quickly or look as nice in my opinion. You often need a lot of coats for them to look decent.

Best overachiever!So my entire life I’ve been plagued with thin brittle nails, and most polish won’t stay on more than a day or two regardless of it being $1 or $18 brand unless I have artificial nails of course. My career does not allow this so I had given up until trying this polish! It does dry incredibly fast, I always need two coats, especially in deeper shades, but it actually stays on for 4 days without a chip and without a top coat while working, cooking, cleaning etc. if I use a top coat, I can get a full week from it. It’s a bonus that it is so reasonably priced. I’ve thrown out everything else, and looking forward to new colors as I rebuild my collection.
