Summer LE Brights: Sally Hansen Insta Dri
This Summer, Sally Hansen introduces a new limited edition collection of brights to the Insta Dri nail polish line.
With a variety of eight colorful shades to choose from, ranging from yellow, green, blue, orange and pinks. Most textures being all cremes with the exception of one shimmer, Instant Iris.
I've blogged a few times about the Insta Dri line and I've really grown to love them. The tapered one coater brush is a little awkward at first and may take some time to get used to.
Check out all the swatches below.
Lickety - Split Lime, a lime green creme.
Lemon Dash - a bright sunny yellow creme. As far as the application, just like any yellow creme. You'll need three coats to even it all out, although I only used two in my swatch above.
The burning question: are these dupes? Well, pretty much. It's really hard to tell a differece in general. Lemon Dash may be slightly lighter, but brighter at the same rate. If you already own Lightening, I don't really see a need for Lemon Dash.
For some reason, Brisk Blue turned out ultra bright in my swatches. A fabulous sky blue creme. I really loved this one.
Instant Iris, is way more pink than it looks in the bottle. A fuchsia pink with flashes of blue and pink shimmer.
Orange You Fast, a deep orange with reddish undertones.
These next three pinks are all related, and not very far off from each other color wise.
Rapidly Rosy, a mid tone pink rosy creme.
Coral Rush, a bright coral pink that is just a tad darker than Rapidly Rosy.
Flyin Fuchsia, is a bright hot pink creme. For some reason, my swatch went MIA. I'll be posting this one in the next couple days.
The brights collection is now available for a limited time only and retails around $4.99/ea. Have a wonderful Friday!

I bought the Insta Dri Lightening and that brush is SO hard to get used to! It is too wide and the color to me doesn't come out right. I am not a fan, even though the colors are amazing. I am thinking of returning it. Any tips or advice?
