Product Love: Instant Artificials

I have been a faithful user of Sally Hansen Nail Growth Miracle for years. My old routine was using one coat of Orly Bonder, followed by SHNGM, then my polish, topped with SV.

I had been seeing quite a few recs for Instant Artificials, and ever the product junkie, of course I had to try it to form an opinion. When I was in Sally's renewing my membership last month I purchased a bottle of it along with a bottle of Gelous as well.

It's been about a month, and I am LOVING Instant Artificials! There were quite a few days that I had no time to paint my nails, but two coats of IA keep my nails looking gorgeous and strong.

I've also been using it exclusively as my basecoat for all my color manis, and it's just fabulous- I feel like I am getting less tipwear as well.

I plan on giving Gelous a try next and reporting back on it as well. Hope you have a great day!

Pin It!

I too saw this product at Sally's at decided to give it a try. I love it! I would say that it lives up to it's promise. My nails are very thin. For years I wore acrylics. This is the first product I've tried where I feel like not only do I have the thickness desired, but the strength. I love this product.

I bought this product on a whim last night. I'm about to use to right now. Decided to look for reviews and came across yours. Now, I can't wait to apply it!

I bought it a few weeks ago and love it. Two coats alone or as a base coat. I put it on just the tips when I do a french manicure and it lasts a week with almost no tip wear. I'm getting great compliments from co-workers.
