Blogmas Day 3 – Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish in Shock Wave

I’ve never really been into the whole gel polish trend, waiting for my nails to dry under a lamp is totally not my scene. I like my nails done and dusted as quickly as possible.

However, when I got the chance to try this new system by Sally Hansen I jumped at the chance. With no lamp needed the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel system is a 2 step process with your colour and a top coat which you just let dry naturally (and it doesn’t even take that long to dry).

I’ve tried quite a few colours in this range including the one above named Shock Wave (what a gorgeous pink!) and I’ve been getting at least a week with zero to minimal chipping, only slight tip wear on occasion. Such a good option for those of us who are too busy to do our nails a few times a week.

I will say though that I did find I needed to give my nails a break from using this polish for awhile, I was using it everytime I did my nails and noticed my nails starting to peel and just look unhealthy. So I do suggest maybe using the set, then give your nails a break and do a series of treatments like I did. I also found if you use something underneath the colour like a base coat or treatment the staying power wasn’t as good.

You can buy these in a starter kit with the Top Coat and a colour for around $19.95AUD or you can purchase them separately for $16.95AUD. I always see them on special at Priceline or Chemist Warehouse and have picked up a few extra colours when they’ve been reduced. I have my eye on Tidal Wave next 🙂
