I thought about using this polish – “Wined up” – when red came up as color, but thank God I didn’t because it is just a perfect color for bordeaux. And since Halloween is just around the corner, I added a little “blood” on the accent nail.
As much as I like the color and its subtle sparkle, I was a bit disappointed about the polish itself. It is from the “Insta-Dri” line, but it didn’t dry that fast. Maybe faster than regular polish, but I expected it to be as quick-drying as the “Insta-Dri” Top Coat, and it’s definitely not.
But the worst let-down was the brush. It is such a weird shape, flat and square, only a tiny bit rounded:
And the handle is as flat and wide as well, which makes it very hard to clean off excess polish. I had to repeatedly brush off the tip, as more and more polish kept oozing down.
I do like Sally Hansen as a brand in general, but I don’t think I will buy another polish from the “Insta-Dri” line. Working with this polish just bugged me too much, and it didn’t have the benefits I expected.
But at least it is named well, because it sure does wind you up. 😀
