I am an Accountant and I use my hands all day, usually chipping regular nail polish regardless of brand after at least the 3rd day of wearing it. In addition to being a ridiculously “rough handed” I am also a mother of a 9 year old with a very busy dance life of her own, oh and did I mention I am a wife to a super supportive man that runs his own business? Anyway, like most women, my time is one of the most important & precious things to me. An hour alone for some pampering is like gold, so I try my best to get as much done in that hour as possible. When I saw the Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel Nail Polish & Top coat, I gotta say I was ultra excited about an affordable product that claimed to give me the same shine and no chip longevity of a Gel Nail Polish application without the curing lamp. All I could think was, maybe I could do my toes and hands in the same hour!
After using the product I can see there are certainly pros & cons! Unfortunately, I found that the cons outweighed the pros.
I really liked that the series starts with decent color selection including luminous finishes.
Conclusion: To be completely honest, the product Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel Nail Polish & Top coat doesn’t live up the implied claim to be “like a Gel Polish, with No Lamp”. True no lamp is required, true you will get a shine, however, the most important parts of Gel polish is the NO CHIPPING and the LONGER WEAR. You can get the same shine, but better strength/protection out of some of Sally Hansen’s more popular lines. For now I will stick with my LED lamp & Sensationail at home Gel Polishes. This product, however, is a very quick alternative to regular nail polish in the event you have to go to a water park and don’t make it to Studio Day Spa or have time to at home gel application.
