SALLY HANSEN INSTA DRI X CRAYOLA SCHOOL'S OUT COLLECTION - SWATCHES & REVIEW #THROWBACK

Sally Hansen has collaborated with Crayola to create specially designed nail polish shades inspired by the Crayola crayon colours we all know and love. 

The limited edition Sally Hansen x Crayola Insta Dri School's Out collection (released in 2018) transports you back to that care-free time of colouring with crayons and sketching out vibrant creations.

I have the 6 polishes from the collection to review for you today :)



WILD WATERMELON
Wild Watermelon is a coral "watermelon" pink nail polish shade.
A very pretty shade of pink!

The formula is absolutely amazing! The polish is easy to apply and effortlessly glides onto the nail. It isn't streaky or patchy and it self-levels well.

It's super pigmented, covers really well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in one thin coat! 


ATOMIC TANGERINE
Atomic Tangerine is a classic orange nail polish shade.
Perfect for Summer! 

The formula is amazing! The polish is easy to apply and effortlessly glides onto the nail. It isn't streaky or patchy and it self-levels well.

It's super pigmented, covers really well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in one - two thin coats! 


INCHWORM
Inchworm is a chartreuse green nail polish shade.
Some may call this an "ugly-pretty colour". 

The formula is amazing for this type of colour! The polish is easy to apply and effortlessly glides onto the nail. It isn't streaky or patchy and it self-levels well.

It's super pigmented, covers really well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in one - two thin coats! 


BLUETIFUL
Bluetiful is a cobalt blue nail polish shade.
Very SH "Pacific Blue"-esque, but it's not a dupe *cries*. 
A lovely shade of blue nonetheless. 

The formula is perfect! The polish is easy to apply and effortlessly glides onto the nail. It isn't streaky or patchy and it self-levels well.

It's extremely pigmented*, covers really well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in one thin coat!  
*It's so pigmented I would definitely recommend wearing a couple of coats of base coat to avoid blue staining. For the record, it didn't stain my nails, but I would still wear base coat just to be safe (no one likes Smurf hands!) 


RAZZLE DAZZLE ROSE
Razzle Dazzle Rose is a fuchsia pink nail polish shade.
OBSESSED with this shade of pink! Always have been, always will be!

The formula is perfection! The polish is easy to apply and effortlessly glides onto the nail. It isn't streaky or patchy and it self-levels well.

It's super pigmented, covers really well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in one thin coat! 


APRICOT
Apricot is a peach nail polish shade. 
I LOOOVE this colour!

The formula is great especially for the type of colour it is! The polish is easy to apply and effortlessly glides onto the nail. It's slightly patchy but it self-levels nicely.

It's super pigmented, covers really well and builds up to full opacity nice and easily in two - three thin coats!

This collection is super cool! I really like the colours and formulas.
I love that Sally Hansen has collaborated with Crayola and that the Insta Dri range has made a comeback here in Australia, after being discontinued years ago.

Sally Hansen have these Insta Dri polishes labelled as "1 stroke. 1 coat. [And] Dry in 60 seconds."
I will say, these polishes do have an amazing wide brush that contours to the nail for smooth and easy application, which I love. They are also really good quality nail polishes and dry super fast. I disagree that they are all opaque in one coat though - I mean most of them are definitely pigmented and opaque enough for a quick and easy out-the-door mani, but I would personally add a second coat for a flawless manicure (and my OCD). 

I cannot wait for the Sally Hansen Insta Dri range to expand - I am especially excited for the Sally Hansen x Jelly Belly collection to launch in Australia!!!
