So I wanted to give a little update on last week's post about Sally Hansen's new Miracle Gel Nail Polish. If you didn't read my original post, this new polish is a gel polish that doesn't need a UV light, claims to last up to 14 days with high shine and no chipping. So, what are my thoughts? Let's check the photos first! Just as a reminder, I did NOT use the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish, I only used the Top Coat. I used a regular Essie polish under the Gel.
Here is a photo of Day1:
Day 3: No major chips, but I should have made sure the topcoat went all the way around the edges of the polish, you know like the way they do at nail salons? I think this would have protected the edges a bit better.
Day 4: One serious chip on my middle finger. Some minor chipping along top ridges.
So, did it last 14 days with no chipping? Obviously not. But 6 days is not too bad in my book and much better than a typical manicure. I was pleased enough to purchase a Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish to use under my topcoat. I grabbed a soft pink shade called Creme de la Creme. I'll be back later in the week to give you another update!
So far I love the color and it is much shinier using the Gel Polish and Topcoat together! Let's keep our fingers crossed!
