Sally Hansen Insta-Grip Fast Dry Base Coat Protect & Shine
I'm a big fan of the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat so it was only a matter of time before I tried out a few more products from the brand. Insta-Grip promises to deliver longer lasting, flawless manicures & pedicures. It's enriched with calcium and nutrient rich anti-oxidants Pomegranate and Goji Berry to help nourish growing nails. My nails have been in a bit of a sorry state lately, as soon as I get them all the same length one will break then I have to file them all down and start over again. They peel, snap, bend, you name it they do it. I can't say if this base coat has improved the condition of my nails (I'm currently trying out a nail treatment) but I bought it in the hope that it might. Does it dry fast as promised? I don't find it dries any quicker than other base coats to be honest but whatever colour I decide to paint my nails seems to really grip on, hence the name.
Some nail shades out there just chip no matter what base/top coat you use but for the most part Insta-Grip has performed really well. Not only is it really cheap but it lasts almost as long on my nails as Nails Inc Kensington Caviar before chips start to appear. Gets a thumbs up from me! :)
