Snappy Sorbet

So I haven't tried Sally's Insta-Dry polishes yet and I'm not sure if I'm ever buying another bottle. I broke out the orangeish/coral Snappy Sorbet, the brush is fairly large like that in Hidden Treasure and I thought it would go on nicely. The polish itself is thick and opaque but streaks or stops spreading around so well. I did two coats, and for something that has Insta-Dry in the title this certainly didn't dry quickly - even with a fan on it. It bubbled on almost every nail.



Both pointer fingers kept smearing and I had to keep repainting. The third time I just decided to leave it as is and hope that a Seche Vite top coat would help. I also wanted a romantic feel so I used the konad heart french tip plate m56 with the special white polish. The right hand was a bit lopsided and I think I did too much on the nail so it doesn't really look like tips. First shot is indoors second is outdoors with indirect sunlight.



The colors could be great together but I'm just not pleased with the execution - this one won't make it long! Have you used the insta-drys, did they work better for you?

  2. It's a really cute color/mani! Shame about the formula, maybe it's just the one bottle?

    It is pretty though,
