Sally Hansen Insta-Dri: Red-io Active

I absolutely hate waiting for my nails to dry, which is why I love Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri formula so much! Today I have the shade Red-io Active* to share with you, which is a chrome red polish. I don't wear red polishes all too often, as I find a lot of reds have a strong orange undertone. I love Red-io Active because while there is an orange undertone, it isn't overpowering.


Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri polishes come with a fairly wide brush that allows me to paint each nail in just one or two strokes. I used two coats of Red-io Active for an opaque look, and I'm really happy this this polish! As the name suggest, this polish dries in just a few minutes. I tend to paint my nails right before bed (such a bad habit), and I love how quickly this polish dries. Nobody wants to wait around for their nails to dry! Red-io Active has a chrome finish, and I love that it doesn't dry to a streaky finish like most chrome polishes tend to do. This polish dries to a shiny finish, and I was able to skip using a top coat - bonus! 



I had to include this song... I just love it!! The video is a little bit creepy, but the song is great. The colab with Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar at the Grammy's was just amazing!


I'm really enjoying Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri in Red-io Active, and I think that this polish makes a great manicure or pedicure shade. Are you a fan of chrome polishes? :)

  1. I am not a fan of metallic reds so this one aint for me. I love the song Radioactive though, I had it on replay for so many times!!

  2. I don't quite like chrome finishing but I love how this Sally Hansen one has a glossy finish! Really a plus point. I should check out this range too as I also have the bad habit of painting my nails at night and waking up to the linen "embossing" on my nails!

    1. There's nothing more annoying than waking up with sheet marks in your nails!

  3. I *know*...what is with painting nails before bed? I do it every time, it seems, and wake up with sheet marks :/ I should totally check this out. I think I only have one polish (a hot pink) from this line.

    1. I know I shouldn't but I just always put off painting my nails until 10 minutes before I want to go to sleep...
