Top Coats make life easy! They give the nails a lovely glossy coat and help the polish stay longer. I can never do a nail paint job without using an Instant Drying Top Coat. I have tried a bunch of these in past few years. Essie To Dry For, Seche Vite and Instant drying oils like OPI Drip Dry etc.
This is my second bottle of the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat.
The product I picked is just the Insta-Dri version. There is one more product in similar bottle that has Insta-Dri and Anti-Chip written on it. I don't know if it is a new product or just the same old one in newer packaging.
Texture and Consistency: This is probably important, because every Top coat I have tried in the past have had very different textures and consistency. Seche vite was very thick and goopy, while the Essie one was pretty thin. This one the other hand is somewhere in between. Top coats tend to get thick over a period of time and become pretty unusable because the brush just does not reach the bottom and tilting the bottle to get the product out does not works either, because it gets thick and more viscous.
Applicator and Scent: The scent is strong, but most of these nail products have strong scents. It is not offensive or foul. The brush applicator is my favorite. It is wide enough to cover the whole nail at one swipe. I love it. The brush does not reaches till the end of the bottle.
Drying time: It dries the upper layer pretty quickly and without any bubbles. No shrinkage of the polish. The multiple coat of polish is completely dry to touch within three-five minutes maximum, not just the top layer, but all the layers of nail polish.
Longevity and Shine: It didn't chip my polish for 3-4 days. After that I did notice some minor wear and tear. This is usually the case with any top coats I use. By mid week, the polish starts to chip. I blame it partly on myself. I am a bit too hard on my nails. This top coat leaves a beautiful, glossy shine.
Verdict: This is one of the best drugstore quick drying Top coat. Very affordable and easily available. A big thumbs up!
