Product Review

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a lovely Valentines Day! I sure did! 

Today I am going to be talking about the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish. I bought mine in the shade "Pink Cadillaquer". When it comes to nail color and nail polishes I have been hunting for one that works on me for years! I do not know what is going on with my finger nails, but it seems they are allergic to nail polish. I kid you not, I paint them, I do not move for almost an hour to let them dry completely, they are as dry as the Sahara Desert and boom I sneeze! I look down and there it is... a chip!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why, oh why is it that nail polish lasts all but  seconds before it chips on me! Come on! I cannot tell you how many products I have bought with the hope that one of them will work. I bought this nail polish because Kathleen Lights raved about it on her channel. She said it was the only polish that she has that did not chip on her... promising! **Insert heavenly music**. So, off I went to Target and bought it. 

How does it work? This is a two step manicure set. The first step is the actual color. No base coat needed. You have to apply two coats of this product, waiting for it to dry off completely before applying the second coat. After that, step two, is to apply the top coat, which cures the product. Natural light is supposed to help with the curing process. It claims that it can give you up to 14 days of color and shine. No need to use the light and that it is very easy to remove.

The good:
  • Oh my goodness! How many gorgeous colors they have! I bought Pink Cadillaquer, which is an almost barbie pink. They have a very wide range of colors including a couple of shimmery ones! They have so many pretty pinks! Those are always my favorites so I was quite impressed with them.
  •  Pretty simple application. Two coats of the color and a top coat. No brains needed! Good for mommy brain, which I suffer from, haha.
  • Easy to remove. When they said it was easy they were not kidding. Best nail polish to remove EVER. And hardly any residue on your fingers.
  • Dries up pretty fast. You really do not need to wait a whole lot for this to actually dry. 
The bad:
  • The first coat applied streaky, and the second coat bubbled a little on my nails. I am not sure if this is something that has to do with my nails in particular or if it is the formula, but I did not like that!
  • IT CHIPPED THE NEXT DAY! Maybe I should but this on the good, since for me nail polish doesn't last more than a couple of hours. But still IT CHIPPED!!!! And, it chipped on chunks. Huge pieces of nail polish would just fall of my nail. One of them was so big my nail barely had any polish left. I talked to a couple of friends of mine that have tried this product and they had the same complaint.
So, in my opinion I am not impressed. For a product that claims that it is the next best thing after a salon gel manicure I was expecting more. A salon manicure for me lasts 7 days before it starts chipping, and it never chips the way this product chipped. I might purchase it again in other colors, just because they are very pretty, but I don't think there is anything super special about it. 

I guess I will keep my search for the perfect nail polish and report back to you guys. Until then, stay gorgeous!
