Having only a few selection of nail polish colors, I tried experimenting on combinations. For this one, first coat was using Insta-Dri in Magenta Motion. For the second coat, I used Complete Salon Manicure in Raisin the Bar. Both polishes are from Sally Hansen. I think I’m loving the outcome.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Racey Rogue
I’m loving this polish for 4 reasons:
dries super fast
huge flat brush with curved edge/tip which makes application a breeze
perfect formula for smooth application; self-leveling; no streaks; no air bubbles!
absolutely gorgeous color

Orly in Lemonade (40731)
Bought it at Landmark, Trinoma for PhP 349.75. (25 cents cheaper than China Glaze :P)
Pros :)
lovely color
very opaque; 2 coats are enough
dries fast (despite the thick formula)
DBP, Toluene, and Formaldehyde free
comfortable brush grip/bottle cap
Cons :(
thick formula, making it hard to apply evenly and to avoid air bubbles
tiny brush (I’m used to Sally Hansen’s huge brush!); applying was a lot of effort!
This chipped on the 3rd day. But, considering the kind of household chores I did (scrubbed and mapped the floor, washed dishes, etc), I’d say it’s good enough. Besides, I get bored and change polish every 3 to 4 days. :D
