Due to lot of nail polish usage and avoiding base coat my nails have turned yellow nowadays and this made me use Sally Hansen Insta brite Nail Whitener which I got from Healthkart. I have been using this every alternate day since two weeks as a base coat, top coat or just by itself and sadly I am not much impressed with the product.
From the name it looks as if it is going to instantly brighten my nails and I can roam around with glossy finish white nails but it makes my nails looks much more yellow than what they are

I could have easily got an OPI nail polish in same amount but I thought to give this a priority and who doesn’t want bright looking nails ? It works nicely as a base coat and does prevent staining of nails which I think any ordinary base coat nail polish will also do.It gives a nice finish when used on nail polish but this was not the reason why I bought it in first place.
My nails are now pretty much white but sadly this makes them look yellow.This might be because product itself is of pale yellow in colour.Wearing it alone disgusts me and makes me run to use tooth paste remedy to make my nails look white.
I really wanted this to work so sometime I used it every alternate day and some time for four days continuously but all my efforts went in vain.
What I like about Sally Hansen Insta- Brite Nail Whitener :-
- I like using it as a top coat
- I have weak nails and they have not broken down since the time I have been using it
- Has SPF which protects my nail
- Gives a nice glossy finish
- It makes my nails look yellow and I hate using it on bare nails
