A must have!
This does everything you could ever want! For me this make my nails touch dry within a few mins, and im all good to go to bed within 15 to 20 mins. No sheet marks! This is a very affordable for what it is. It has changed my whole outlook on doing my nails :)
Only down side is when you get to about your last 1/3 it starts to get thick and stringy. But i just buy a new bottle then when thats a 1/3 empty i pour my first bottle into my second ottle and shake. Good as new :D

I am not a very patient person when it comes to waiting for my nails to dry. I went to Priceline in search of something to dry my nail polish fairly quickly and one of the assistants recommended this as she uses it. I'm so glad she did. I can now paint my nails and then brush a coat of this over the top and within under 30 seconds my nails are dry! Could not recommend this enough.

Great top coat - dries polish super fast!
This is a great top coat. It leaves a lovely glossy finish and dramatically reduces the drying time of nail polish. You'll never go back to an ordinary top coat again after trying this!

Cannot live without
As someone who is addicted to Konad Stamping, I LUURVE this product... It gets me from bare nails to stamping away within the half hour. Can't ask for more than that.
I don't use it as a final topcoat... I find that some hand creams will dull the surface. So I use Seche Vite for the finish.

Does what it says!
First Salley Hansen product I ever purchased, this topcoat is my favourite! The polish does pretty much exactly as advertised; dries nail polish in around 30 seconds, and really helps to prevent chipping. My nails will remain chip-free with this topcoat for 3-4 days (depending on what I'm doing) before I have to touch up the tips. What I like about this topcoat as well as the shine and consistency. A lot of quick-dry lack lustre when dried and/or have a thick, gluggy consistency. This is not the case with Insta-Dri!
Only minor problem with the product is the drying. Remember to wait 2 minutes (as recommended) for your colour polish to dry, and don't expect your nails to be rock hard after Insta-Dri. They definitely become dry to the touch, and you're able to do most things but you'd probably need to wait at least 15 minutes or so before going to bed and anything else that could apply significant pressure on your nails. Really great product though, would definitely recommend :)

This is great stuff, dries wet nails within a minute and leaves a lovely high gloss shine. Be warned that if you do your nails right before bed and use it, the sheets will leave impressions on your nails. This is a great product at a good price and I will buy over and over.

This is one of the fastest drying top coats I have ever used (second only to Seche Vite). It doesn't matter how many layers you've done on your mani, this will dry all those layers in minutes.
It also dries very shiny and is very good at smoothing out a glitter mani. Like most other quick dry top coats, this becomes thicker as you get through the bottle, so requires nail polish thinner to ensure it stays easy to use. This is not the best value top coat though as the volume is lower than the standard 15ml and the price is high.

This is amazing, I can't believe I hadn't tried this earlier. I did try another one from another brand, which was rubbish. This actually works. I usually apply 2-3 coats of regular nailpolish, wait about a minute (without waiting for each layer of nailpolish to dry individually) and then apply one coat of the insta-dri. If it's still not dry after 30 seconds, i just apply another and, amazingly, it's dry within 30 seconds. Like rock solid, i'm so glad my late night manicures don't end up going to waste - I usually wake up with hair and bedsheet marks all over my nails.

Dries quickly & adds shine, not sure about the anti-chip though.
I use this mostly because I'm impatient! It dries in 30 seconds (though usually I leave it for a minute just in case) and it adds a nice glossy finish. My polish definitely lasts longer with it, but I would dispute the claim of ten days - more like six days, and even then they look a bit more bedraggled towards the end, not chipped but a little faded at the tips. Still, I'm pretty happy with this product, it's noticeably more effective than the really cheap top-coats I've tried (like $3 ones) and I haven't found the expensive ones (like OPI) to be any better.

i don't have the patience of a rock so insta-dri was the perfect solution, my nails were dry in 30 seconds and my nails never get chipped! I love this top coat and I don't think i'll ever change it!!
