Matte white nails for summer {new Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Matte nail polish}


I seem to have a love-hate relationship with matte nails.  At times they’re really fun- a rich, black polish looks so fun and edgy with a matte top coat!- but other times, the look isn’t one of my favorites.  That being said, when I found the new Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Matte display at my local Walgreens, the white shade screamed at me.  White is such a staple color to own for the summertime, yet to my surprise I actually don’t own a standard white nail polish!  So, into my shopping basket it went, and I ended up kind of falling in love with it.

Keep reading to see what’s on my nails, ft. the (limited edition) Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Matte nail polish in White Pick It Fence!

White Pick It Fence wasn’t a love-at-first-swatch kind of situation for me- the first time I swatched it, I felt pretty indifferent about white nails.  It was the second time (yesterday, when I actually used it as a full manicure) that won me over.  Something about the matte effect makes it so fun and different, perfectly suited for the beginning of summer.  It also makes my hands look tanner!

As far as the formula, I had to paint on three thin coats to get the polish completely even; so, it could have been better, but I didn’t have any clumping, bubbling, etc.  The only real gripe I have is that the brush on mine is cut a bit funky.

The Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Matte nail polishes are around $5-6.00 (depending on where you find them) at Walgreens, CVS, and other drugstores that sell limited edition Sally Hansen products.

What do you guys think of white nails- and matte white nails, for that matter?  Have you tried any of these new Sally Hansen matte nail polishes?  I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!  Happy Friday. :) XOX

    I like the white matte for summer! It definitely makes a statement, but looks good with fun bright outfits & a little brighter makeup.
