Although I wasn’t planning on doing a review of this product, I was inspired to after I used it.
I received the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish in “Super Charge” for Christmas. I was really excited to use it because I had never tried this polish formula before and the color is a really pretty chartreuse color. It claims to give you the same look as gel nails without the UV/LED hassle.
I’ve never had gel nails before so I can’t compare this polish to them, however I can vouch for how long it lasted on my nails. I put this polish on on Boxing day and it is only now starting to chip. That’s 4 days! The best part is I didn’t even use a top coat with it.
After googling these polishes I discovered that the color is only step one and that there is a specially formulated top coat to go with them. I immediately went to Walmart to buy the top coat (both the top coat and the colors are $10 at Walmart). Because this lasted for days without any top coat at all, I have high hopes that with the top coat the color will last even longer. The Sally Hansen website claims that “color and shine” will last two weeks when you use both step 1 & 2. I don’t know about that, but I’d be happy with just a week!
The only downside to this polish is that it applies very sheer. I had to do three coats for it to be opaque. I’m not sure if that goes for all the colors or just Super Charge as it is the only one I own (for now!)
Have you tried these polishes? If so, what are your thoughts?
Thanks for reading! 🙂
