The formula itself is quite thick so one coat basically covers well. I still applied a second coat but it was not even necessary. The brush is the perfect size and it's angled just right for my nails. My nail painting skills are terrible (no joke), probably the worst but with Insta-Dry they looked great without too (wink) many imperfections.
I have also been using the Sally Hansen Ultimate Shield base and top coat. It goes on smooth and helps extend the life of my polish. Another great Sally product!
I also picked up Maybelline's 24 hour Color Tattoo - Leather- in 80 creamy beige. It's a beautiful creamy dark beige/light brown color. I use this as a base without primer and my eye shadow stays put all day. I love these shadows and I am happy they came out with some more less shimmery colors. Now that it is officially fall, I am reaching less for the shimmer and more for a matte eye look.
What drug store product are you loving for fall?
