I recently gave up acrylic nails and went to natural nails. That also meant that I gave up my gel manicure at the nail shop. Getting that gel off your nails can be equally damaging as wearing acrylics. Well, when I polish my nails, they just don’t hold up; washing dishes, constant hand washing and typing all day does my manicure in. That was until I was sent Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polishes to review. Bottom line– I’m thrilled with how great my nails look, and how long my manicure lasts. The first color I started with was How Nude–it’s a perfect match for my skin tone.
Here are the details about Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish in How Nude $9.99:
- No UV/LED light needed
- 2 Simple steps
- Increased wear & durability over time
- Easy, soak free removal
- Up to 14 days of color & shine
New Miracle Gel™. The only true 2-step gel manicure with no light needed. Over 45 shades that wow! And it’s only from Sally Hansen®.
Why it’s an editor’s pick:
First off. let me mention that great brush that Sally Hansen provides in it’s nail polishes. It’s wide, “curved” so that you are able to get right next to your cuticle without any problem, and you only have to make three full sweeps across your nail to have complete coverage. The color, How Nude is a perfect nude for brown skin — so I was extremely pleased to have a tonal match!
The shine, when using the Miracle Gel Top Coat is amazing. Even more amazing is that the shine lasts through days of hand washing, dish washing and the general abuse I inflict on my hands. The finish truly looks like a salon gel manicure, which I love. I have had several people ask me which “brand” gel polish I am wearing, and they are excited to learn that they don’t need to go to the salon to get this mani. And the best part is that I don’t need the special light to set the polish.
I have two more colors to try, and I will post those as soon as this manicure wears off!
