Polish Love || Sally Hansen Miracle Gel + A Giveaway!


Remember when I shared my love for the CND Vinylux Weekly polishes? Well I still love those but I found another one that is equally fantastic but this one is a little easier to find. The top coat alone on any polish works better than any other top coat I've used, as far as making polish last. The Miracle Gel polishes + top coat are a dream. The formula is great and I get well over a week with them. I've been testing them out for a while now, so today I'm sharing them with you and swatches of the 3 colors I currently own.

Miracle Gel Polish

Miracle Gel Polish

Buy from.
Any drugstore (Target, Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens, etc.)

Price point.
$7.19-$7.99 is what I've seen for a single. Some places you can find a combo set that has a top coat & 1 polish color. 

Coats applied.
I applied 2 coats of polish, 1 coat of the top coat.

Polish lasted. 
Normal polish with this gel top coat, about 5-6 days.
Miracle Gel polish + top coat, about 8-9 days.

I'll definitely be building up my collection, I'm hooked.

And now onto the fun giveaway....

  1. I have smartease and for some reason it never came out as good as yours!! Sadly I didn't have the same results, but maybe my nails are getting better so I'll have to try it again! So happy to be part of this giveaway with you! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. I've wondered about these polishes and every time I go to buy one + the top coat it seems so expensive, but I might give it a try next time there's a sale at Ulta! I love the color on your toes!

  7. I have these polishes and they are great. I don't care for the top coat, I use the one from Revlon instead as I find that it works better.

  12. Ooh love these colours! Is Smartease at all close to Essie Fiji? Fiji is my fav colour but it always cracks on my fingernails :(

  13. I used to love the Sally Manicure line and I have been wanting to grab at least the top coat in the gel line but never have yet. I think this weekend is it, you have pushed me over the edge with your stamp of approval! They have so many pretty colors!!! I would much rather pay $7.99 for this and last several days than $8.49 for Essie and watch it chip after one day.

  14. How is it on your nails after you take it off?

  15. I have that nude color too. I love it for summer actually.

  16. Love both of those pink colors! I have seen this polish and I have been so curious about it. Thank you for sharing your review! :-)

  17. This sounds fabulous. I am hopeless at painting my own nails though. My cuticles always look like a hot mess.

  18. I'm glad you wrote this post because it reminded me that I want to buy some of this! I always like seeing your colors int he bottle and on your nails too. I always have a hard time deciding what to buy in store, and it helps to have visuals. :)

  19. And now I need all of those! Especially Smartease. I have a blue from that line that I really like. Is that pink easy to paint? Some light pinks are a pain!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ooo thanks for sharing the polishes! Great colors in the collections.

  21. I love the Miracle Gel! It's the only polish I use other than OPI -- and I normally put the Miracle Gel top coat over my OPI colors if I'm doing an at-home mani!

  23. I'm totes obsessed with the miracle gel polishes too! They have such great colors and they really do last!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've heard those are amazing but haven't tried them yet! Will definitely have to check them out, such a great price!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Those polishes need to make their way into my home, so pretty! And awesome giveaway, perfect timing with the upcoming anniversary sale :-D

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm in love with all of your colors! They look like the perfect pinks and the perfect nude, which is so hard to find! It's so funny becuase I go through obsessive periods of time with nail polish- getting my nails done like crazy or doing them myself, but my no nail polish breaks tend to be the longest. As such I'm never in the know of awesome products like this!

  28. I'm so glad you talked about the Top Coat a while ago! I scooped some up while I was in Houston and I LOVE it. Now I just need to use it sparingly until I can get some more and have a nice little nest of top coat in my life, haha. Those colors look gorgeous! If you're a blue lover, try out the Sugar Fix color!
