Hi Loves! After many many years of going to the nail salon and getting my bi-weekly fill-in, I have finally parted ways with my acrylic nails….for now at least.
Since deciding to let my nails go au naturale, I was on the hunt for a good polish that doesn’t chip right away! There has been a lot of hype around the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes so needless to say I was eager to give them a try!
When I went to my local drugstore I was shocked to see such a wide variety of shades from this “2 step gel manicure” line. It was AMAZING! I came across the shade “Crème De La Crème” which is a very pale pink color that I had been eyeing for some time now and also picked up the Miracle Gel Top Coat (yes you do need this top coat, no skipping out on this). These polishes do not require you to use a base coat. Simply apply two coats of the Miracle Gel polish of your choosing and top it off with one coat of the Miracle Gel Top Coat. For optimal performance it is SO important that you let each coat FULLY dry before applying the next coat. Yes, it’s a tad more time consuming but they dry fairly quickly and the end result is well worth the extra time.
I have to say I am super impressed with the formula of this nail polish and how well it actually holds up. Did this polish live up to its claim of lasting 14 days!? Sadly no, not at all. But I did get a solid 4-5 days out of it until they started to show signs of wear. This is FANTASTIC in my book considering most polishes end up chipping on me by the next day! I can’t wait to pick up more shades!
I’ve been eyeing “All Chalked Up” which is a pretty lavender. Definitely will be my next purchase!
