One of my favorite quick-dry polishes, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Formula has a new formula and new shades! The newly upgraded 3-in-1 formula with built in base and top coat, boasts an updated bottle, a revamped formula and fabulous shade additions. The shades above included muted and bold shades. The pink metallic on top is called Petal to the Metal and it is gorgeous! One coat looked amazing, but two coats was more opaque and it lasted for days!
