NEW Sally Hansen 2013 Insta-Dri Fall Collection Swatches, Stamp Swatches, Review and Nail Art Designs

Hey everyone! I have a review for you today of most of the new Sally Hansen 2013 Insta-Dri Fall Collection! I reviewed 2 for you guys a couple weeks ago & I have gotten some more to show you today. I also included the two I previously reviewed in this review aswell so that they will all be together, just makes it easier for those interested in learning about this collection. I was so excited to hear about this Fall Collection because the Insta-Dri line has a great formula, they're quick drying and the majority of them work wonderful with nail stamping so I just had to test out these new ones! As I stated in my previous review for Chop Chop Copper & Quick Jean-ius, the new line uses the same flat style brush as the regular Insta-Dris which makes for an easy, smooth application, but you may need to wipe the brush before application as it does tend to pick up a lot of polish. Also, just like the main collection, these polishes are the Big 5 Free (DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor). They come in the same triangular shaped bottles as the original Insta-Dris and you can find them at drugstores such as Walgreens and CVS, though I believe these are only Limited Edition so I suggest you hurry if you're interesting in getting them!

Jet Set Jade - Although this polish is very dark, it takes two coats to make opaque. It's a very deep jade/forest green shade and it does stamp, but it's a little thinner than most of the insta-dri polishes.

Red-io Active - This is a beautiful candy red polish with lots of shine! This one was a little hard to photograph because in the pics it looks like a cream polish, but it's actually shimmery. The shade reminds me of cherry flavored hard candy & stamps beautifully!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Red-io Active
No S-pear Time - This is a rich olive green tone with tons of shimmer. It took one coat to make opaque & has a beautiful foil like finish. This polish is excellent for stamping on both light & dark bases!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri No S-pear time
Pink Fast - This polish is like the pink version of No S-pear Time. What I mean by that is it has that same shimmery foil like finish & is opaque in just one coat. It's a beautiful shiny fuchsia shade with very fine silver flecks throughout it & it stamps beautifully.

Quick Jeanius - This is a shimmery deep navy blue, very rich in color! It was opaque in just one coat and took about a minute to dry! And when it comes to nail stamping, this polish did not disappoint!

Chop Chop Copper - The is a beautiful copper shade with tons of shimmer. It's fine micro glittery finish emits tons of sparkle. Unlike many of the other Sally Hansen Insta-Dris, this polish applies somewhat sheer and took about 3-4 coats to make opaque. This is a great shade for autumn but for all my stamping addicts out there, this is not one to stamp with.

As you can see, the majority of this collection stamps beautifully which I really love! And even if you aren't into nail art stamping, they are beautiful polishes to wear & are quick drying, which is great! What do you think of the collection?

Hey everyone! I hope all is well! Today I wanted to share with you this simple cancer awareness nail stamping design I did. There are so many illnesses & cancers out there so I really like this stamping pattern from bundle monster that features awareness ribbons. It makes it so much easier to create awareness nail art designs for different causes & I really like to do designs like these. For this design, I used a couple of the new Sally Hansen Fall Collection Insta-Dri polishes to stamp with. I will be publishing a full review for this collection, including swatches & stamp swatches, sometime within the next week. I did pink ribbons since it's breast cancer awareness month & then decided to switch it up with some jade ribbons for liver cancer awareness. I hope you like & my prayers go out to all those affected by cancer. God Bless!
