recos from regina : sally hansen miracle gel

July 31, 2014By DJMC

I recently went into my local Shopper’s Drug Mart and the first thing that caught my eye when I entered the store was the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel #OMGel polish display. I was told by a store employee that they had just finished the display 10 minutes before I came into the store.

The display of all 47 gel polishes did not make my decision easy with all the pretty colours available. In the end, the colour that came home with me was Birthday Suit.

The Sally Hansen Miracle gel polish consists of two steps. Step 1 is the Gel Color and Step 2 is the Top Coat. It states that it’s “Quick to apply, up to 14 days of color and shine, Easy Removal and no light needed.”

When using the polish what appealed to me was the width of the brush. It applied nicely with no streaks in between coats. To get the desired colour that I was looking for, I used 3 coats on my nails.

In between each application of polish, what I liked about Step 1 and Step 2 is how quickly my nails dried. A light is not needed in the drying process for gel polish and to remove the polish all you need is nail polish remover.

The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel products can currently be found at Shoppers Drug Mart for the retail price of $11.99 each, or each of the 4 different colour sets go for $18.99 each.

You can also purchase it at Wal-Mart, Target, Rexall and Loblaws.
