The Fastest-Drying Smudge-Free Nail Polish

Faster than a Kim Kardashian hair-color change is the drying time of Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri nail polish: 60 seconds, flat. This polish dries perfectly (zero base coat or topcoat required) and sets with no smudges in a minute. Each bottle comes equipped with a wide polish brush, which makes it easy to coat an entire nail in about one-and-a-half strokes. And, happily, the speed of the drying time doesn't also equal more chips — my last manicure with this polish lasted a good six days. This spring, Insta-Dri adds 14 new colors to the range, with my favorites being the soft gray Show Steel-er and the purple, sparkly Grape Shifter. No more waiting.
