Sally Hansen Insta Dri – Chop Chop Copper

So, I think this the penultimate polish from the US Haul from November.  We have one more coming up.  This one is one that I had my eye on when I saw the first swatches of the Fall 2013 Insta Dri line (as well as the red one but I’ve not found that one yet).

This is Chop Chop Copper

This formula is quite sheer, so what you see above is four thin coats over a base of G&G Stuck on Blu! Formula did build up, its quite a complex shade so its a shame its not a bit more explicit.  There is a real mix of pink and green when you really look at this polish or its under intense light.

I might try a thin layer of this over other dark polishes, could be quite interesting.

I know that here in the UK a lot of Insta Dri polishes can be found in Poundland or other pound shops.  You can also pick them up on some online cosmetic discounters.  I got a whole bunch in my local Pound World and they are great for stamping!

What are your fave Sally Hansen polishes?

  1. That’s a really nice colour, all the ones I have found in £1 shops are really bright colours (which I like) but I’d love some pastels or something like that! I’ll have to see if they do them on the new online £1 shop when it opens… 🙂


  2. I love my Sally Hansen Insta-Dry polishes, and you are right, they are the BEST for stamping. I got mine at Poundland here, and they are such a bargain!
    Love this colour too – I’m glad you described it, because I thought it might just be a gold colour. I’ll keep my eye out for this!


    • If you like coppers and multi toned shades this would be a good one to get. Not sure how it might show up in stamping as it is a touch sheer, but it could be excellent for some subtle accents 🙂


  3. That’s a very pretty colour! The insta dris are some of my favourites too since they are so versatile – good for base colours and stamping. And most are one-coaters and quick dry – what’s not to like?! 🙂


    • Exactly, I love them and really wish that SH would introduce them properly into the UK. Not that I am complaining about picking them up in the £ stores mind you! Thanks for your comment 🙂


  4. Hey Lou, this is interesting! It’s a pity that it takes four thin coats though. I don’t think I have the patience for that! I’d love to know if it layers well over a dark shade though!
