2 L/E Sally Hansen Insta-Dri’s – Teal-y Fast and Bronze Ablaze

I snagged these polishes at my local Walgreen’s for about $5 a bottle.  They are from the Insta-Dri Fall 2011 collection.  Normally I don’t bother with this line because the colors don’t call my name, but these I had to get.

Teal-y Fast (groan, that name) is a richly pigmented teal foil.  This applied like buttah in two coats.  The photo below is in indirect sunlight.  Although there’s a hint of a purple duochrome effect in the bottle, it doesn’t translate to the nail.  I don’t mind though because this color is so scrumptious.

And bright, direct sunlight:

Bronze Ablaze also applied wonderfully with no muss.  It’s a rich metallic bronze, really the quintessential fall shade.  The wrinkling you see on my ring finger is not from Bronze Ablaze, but from my Seche Vite which I slopped on too thickly methinks.

True to their names, these dried in a flash and would be perfect for a quickie manicure when time is short.
