I love having my nails painted, but hate to spend the money on a professional manicure that won't last. I'm hardly a delicate type of person, and am usually involved in activities or projects that don't jive with painted nails (like apartment renovations). Once in a while I'll paint them at home, but inevitably I end up with a messy right hand (because I'm not ambidextrous) and I mess up at least one nail due to my impatience waiting for them to dry. Last night I went to Duane Reade to pick up a few things and grabbed a bottle of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri for $4.95. The brush is very wide and shaped in a way that made it easy to "stay in the lines" and you don't have to keep dipping for every nail. It took me just a couple minutes and they really did dry completely within a minute or two. I'm so going to buy more colors asap!
