♥ S.H. Insta-Dri 'Grape Going' ♥

3 thin coats of Sally Hansen Insta Dri Grape Going. No Top Coat.

What a lovely colour. I love this pretty purple shade with prominent blue iridescent shimmer that can be seen in most lighting conditions. It's supposed to be 'Insta-Dri' but I found it took a long timer to dry. This also needs at least 4 coats to hide any bald spots = it is very sheer. I think this will be great as a layering polish, but I am a little disappointed that it this sheer.

On another note, can you imagine creating a polish colour so awesome, that another world famous polish company copies it? That would be a thrill! I'll have to put some thought into what type of polish I would make ... if I could, probably something very similar to the older S.H. Nail Prisms something that dry's fast and has the same formula as the older Nail Prisms = but a shimmery Chocolate brown with Orange and Red duo-chrome-i-ness and Flash.  So, I suppose it would just like Nail Prisms Garnet Lapis, but Chocolaty Brown, With a strong Orange/ Red Flash, but also has alot of shimmery iridescence to it. OR, Like that Nat Robbins Polish I modeled a few months ago, 'Phantom', same shade of Brown just much more opaque and instead of the blurple flash it would be a strong Orange/Reddish Flash & Iridescence. I have seen a polish sorta like this on the blogs recently, but can't remember where.....

If you could make your 'Dream' polish what would it be? or does it exist already.

Back to this polish. The iridescence in this is strong, it completely eclipses the subtle duo-chrome and it is extremely noticeable & beautiful. I did say I would never buy one of these Insta-Dri's again, but it truely is a lovely polish despite the slow drying time & sheerness which I had been warned about =  BUT I had to have it. ( on sale ~ of course ).

This is 3 thin coats, with no Top Coat -  I have a hankering to do some nail art, something easy and simple for this lovely Sunday Evening.....................
