I love this top coat!

My HG topcoat. It makes my mani look nice and shiny until I remove my polish, my polish lasts days longer before any chipping occurs, it dries quickly and comes with a good size brush. The only thing I don't like is that it thickens up after a while and I have to use nail polish thinner each time I use it to get it to the right consistency to apply easily or buy a new bottle.

Cant live without it!!

There go the days where I cant do anything for about 5 hours because my nails are wet. This has become my saviour!

The name of this nail polish says it all, "Insta-Dry" and instantly makes my nails dry to the touch. The bottle may look red but don't fear because the actual top coat is clear. Usually with other top coats my nails polish usually chips on the first day but im in the 2nd day now and I have noticed no chipping at all.

This is going to be my most reached for top coat and will join my long list of holy grails. I would recommend this anyone that loves nail polish but can waiting for it to dry. I would definitely buy this again. Its amazing!!

I love this as I couldn't get or find seche Vite here in Australia I brought this 1 and I love it it's so fast drying and shiny I love this top coat so much it's the best I've ever tried! Well done Sally Hansen another product I will always buy 😃


Don't touch your nails to quickly they might smudge. Wait at least a few minutes after you paint your nails to apply this so everything dries quickly.

Ideal for

To use over any nail polish color.

Absolutely recommend!

I've been using this for years for my once-a -week manicures, and I haven't managed to find one that does a better job at drying so quickly or preventing chipping. While I wouldn't go so far as to say my nails are dry in 30 seconds, it does dry pretty quickly, which is really convenient since I like to do my nails before bed (don't have to wake up with sheet marks!) It also gives a really shiny finish, and I rarely get chips throughout the week, only tip wear, which is to be expected. The only downside is how thick and bubbly it can get once you use up about two thirds of the bottle, but the first two thirds are absolutely worth it.


I'd apply colour, then wait a while (it suggests 2 minutes), but definitely apply it before it dries completely or it seems to leave bubbles in your manicure.

Where have you been all my life!

OMG I LOVE this stuff! I only just discovered it, and I think it is ah-maze! With 2 kids I find it hard to get a good coat on my nails, so generally I do my nails at night. I hate going to bed with that wet feeling, knowing my nails could smudge. This stuff is like the effect you get with shellac. I put it on as my top coat and within minutes it's touch dry and super shiny.

Ideal for

The time poor.

Decent top coar

I think this is a decent top coat, definitely one of the better ones I've tried. My nails chip very easily, sometimes even within a day.. But this one lasted a tad longer than some other ones so I'll probably repurchase it if it goes on sale.

my favourite topcoat

This is my all time favourite top coat. I used to love seche vite but found it was too thick, kept drying up and was making my nail polish shrink - if you know what I mean... Anyway, this definitely doesn't give as much of a glossy finish as seche vite but it truly is a quick try top coat with a nice finish. I have bought numerous bottles and expect to repurchase many more.

pretty amazing

This top coat dries super fast and gives amazing shine to your nails. Really helps extend the life of your manicure and just gives your nails a great finish. The only downside for me is I started to get little air bubbles forming on my nails after I applied this and had to start over.

Does exactly what it says

I never paint my nails without this product now. I've been using it for a few years and nearly every time I paint my nails, someone asks me if I have had Shellac done. It leaves nails so shiny and it honestly does dry the polish in no time. It's a little pricey but I think its worth it. I have tried a lot of nail products but I think this one really delivers on what it promises.

A lifesaver!

This product is amazing! I no longer have to set aside an hour to do my nails, I can just put this on and get on with my day. I wouldn't do the washing up or anything, but you can do most tasks again within 15 minutes. As others have mentioned, it does thicken as you go through the bottle, but it's still usable and still provides a great, hard, smooth finish.
