Confession: I sometimes go weeks without painting my nails because I honestly can't find a period of 20 minutes when I wouldn't nudge, bump, or smudge my just-painted nails. Not to mention the time it takes to paint them—the two to three coats of color plus a base coat and top coat, it adds up. Like most Southern women, I'm rarely sitting still. There's always an email to send, phone call to take, laundry to fold, and the list goes on. Now there's a new drugstore polish by one of our favorite brands that promises to be the solution for busy women everywhere—Sally Hansen Insta-Dri.

The tagline promises one stroke, one coat, and you're finished. The quick dry nail polish comes in clear (Clearly Quick) plus 47 more opaque, high-coverage shades that live up to their promise. Each polish is formulated with both a base coat and fast dry top coat already mixed in, which means you have dry nails, fast. When it comes down to it, with Insta-Dri you're eliminating at least three steps from an otherwise four-step process.

We don't blame you if you leave us here and run to the drugstore to grab a bottle of our new favorite Sally Hansen polish immediately. You can also purchase online and wait for it to ship. You're right, I don't have the patience for that either. I'll see you in the polish aisle.
