(UPDATED) Spotted: Sally Hansen Limited Edition Summer 2014 Matte Insta-Dri Collection

Just in: Bottle shots and swatches of four shades in this collection. Scroll down to see!

Matte Insta-Dris? Yep! In addition to the Limited Edition Summer 2014 I Heart Nail Art Liquid Mani-a Color Foils (aka: Chromes), Salon Effects nail strips and the new Color Frenzy Glitters, we've also got a brand new collection of all-matte Insta-Dris! Many thanks to reader Hannah for this sighting. Hannah spotted this display at an independent drugstore in the Midwest and was nice enough to share this pic with us:

The pink one looks like it has shimmer in the bottle, but it is undetectable on the nail. The other three I purchased don't appear to have any shimmer whatsoever.

The formulas seem a bit thick, but they're doable. I did two coats of each, dry time is almost true to the name, and I honestly can't pick a favorite.

And it's also the typical flat brush that the Sally Hansen line has, which I think makes application a cinch.

Have you spotted these matte Insta-Dris in your area yet? Thoughts? I don't think we've ever seen mattes in the Insta-Dri line before, right?

Thanks so much, Chrissy and Hannah, for the great sighting and pics!

  1. I must have these!!! I have never seen a matte Insta-dri and I have over 50 of them. That's 2 of my favorite things together!

    1. Can you tell if they are Creme or have some hidden shimmer?

  4. I just emailed you pictures of the bottles, the names, closeups of the bottles, a swatch on each nail, and a mini review-ish.

    2. I had just sent it, the pictures arw a bit large, so it may still be sending. I had to send a second email, because I couldn't fit thay last picture haha. Forgot to mention, though, I only purchased four of them. I think I need to go back for the mint green one! I wasn't feeling the white, though, haha

    3. I have to head out for a bit, but my outbox on my phone says it's still sending. If it's in limbo when I get home, I'll upload the images to my computer and try again from there.

    4. Did you ever get it? It bounced them back to me, and I resent them. :/

    5. I received two emails of bottle shots and swatches of FOUR of the shades from a reader last night, but I don't know if that was you (the name on the email doesn't match your screen name)! If you sent pics/swatches of four shades, then YES, I got them and I'm doing a post today! Thank you so much!

      But if that wasn't you, then I still didn't get them! I'm so sorry if you're having trouble getting them to me--I will post your pics whenever they come through! :)

  5. I would love to see swatches and a review.I've not had great results with the insta dri polishes,but I would love me some matte polish.

  6. I got the mint and had a REALLY hard time getting a smooth even coat. I usually LOVE Insta-dri for the quick drying formula and I usually only have to use one coat, but with the matte, it made for a really gloppy messy look. I went over several nails more than twice trying to get it even, but they never looked totally smooth. Maybe the secret is to try to do really thin coats. I liked the polish and the look on the nails I could get to work, and it did dry fast, but maybe too fast...
