Sally Hansen Miracle Gel - Fall 2016


Hi, friends! I know, its been a while! I apologize, I've actually been more active on my YouTube channel, lately, which you can find HERE if you so desire. I'm doing beauty reviews there, as well as vlogs, collectible unboxings and much more. The blog will remain, I'm just focusing more on growing the channel right now.

Anyway, I have some new pretties from Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel line to show you today. I received three colors to review as well as the coordinating top coat, the second step in the two step system. Let me get right to the pics:

This shot features two coats of Stilettos & Studs on all but my ring finger and two coats of Game of Chromes on my accent nail. All are topped with one coat of the Miracle Gel top coat.

This shot features two coats of Rock On, followed by one coat of Miracle Gel top coat.

Overall, this is a bit of a mixed bag for me. I LOVE the Miracle Gel brushes, wide and easy to control, the same ones used in Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure. Stilettos & Studs, which is a charcoal-y chrome with a bit of shimmer, is gorgeous and right up my alley. Game of Chromes (how great is that name) was a surprise for me. I did not expect to love it as I'm more partial to cool-toned chromes (re: grey, silver, platinum) than gold but I actually really adore this polish! They were both nice and opaque in two coats. The top coat works like a charm and I had the top mani for at least a solid week before I noticed any tip wear and NO chips aside from that. YAY! I just applied Rock On moments ago (yes, I'm typing with "damp" nails) but so far, not really loving it. I'm not a big fan of "grainy" textures in polish and this one definitely falls into that category. But, we shall see, it might grow on me.
