Beauty Buzz: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish Review

BeautyBuzzSally Hanson Miracle Gel Polish

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish in Crème de la Crème, $8 and Miracle Top Coat, $10

I was born without the gene that allows people to enjoy their time at a salon.  I hesitate to use the word “hate” but I’m pretty sure I hate getting my hair done, getting anything waxed and getting my nails done, in that order.  I do it.  I do it regularly, but it is my least favorite thing to do. I would rather do anything else, including going to the dentist. Aside from it being a significant expense, the sheer amount of time it takes out of my day makes it almost impossible to relax. Who has this much time? Who wants to make small talk for what seems like hours?

Not me.

Last week I complimented a woman in one of our corporate programs on her manicure. It was fresh, clean and lovely. That’s when she confessed her love for Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel Polish. Of course, I ran out and bought it.  Gels have been all the rage as of late. At the salon, they’ll run you $30+ and promise to last up to two weeks. There are no UV lights, heaters or toxic fumes from acrylic powder mixtures, so all in all it is a great option. The challenge, of course, comes down to time, and I don’t know many women who can sit in a manicure chair 2 – 4 times a month.

With Sally Hansen’s Gel Polish, you get the same look at home. It’s a simple two-step process. Select your color polish from the line, there are dozens of colors available, I picked mine up at Target, and then add the Miracle Top Coat, which “sets” the polish. You must use the two products together.  That’s it, and you’re good for about a week. The best part is you can remove the polish with regular old nail polish remover, no soaking necessary.

For best results, consider getting a traditional manicure every 4 – 6 weeks just to clean up your cuticles and have your nails shaped. From there, you can maintain from home. I like this at home option because of the time saved and it looks great. You can apply and let it dry as you answer emails. It’s multitasking at it’s finest.
