When we saw the ads of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in our favorite magazines and heard lots of our friends talking about it, we decided to give it a try and test them.
The Miracle Gel collection of the US nail polish company Sally Hansen invented a an new formula which is going to revolutionize the market. It promises to last up to 14 days without chipping and this significant gel manicure finish which does not require any UV light. We know it sounds too good to be true but just continue reading.
Before we bought the fancy new nail polish, we’ve compared different resellers in Switzerland to make sure to get the best deal for you guys. So we ended up at parfumcity.ch, where a Top Coat and a Color each coast around 9.25 CHF. (plus 8.00 CHF for the shipping). At Manor you would have to pay 16.50 CHF and at Douglas 14.00 CHF per bottle, so you still better off at parfumecity.ch even though you have to pay for the shipment. If your like us and can’t decide between all of those pretty colors, it pays off to buy some colors together because the shipment doesn't change.
The application is very simple like 1 & 2. As always before doing your nails, we recommend to clean and shape them, so the polish has a better grip and looks even nicer. For best results apply two layers of your Color, we tried Birthday Suite, Pink Promise, Wine Stock and Pinky Rings and seal it with the Top Coat. Just make sure to give the polish some time to dry in between layers, so wait for 1 minute before applying the next one and your good. After the Top Coat hold your hands into some sunlight to give the polish some extra UV-light which helps it dry faster. We have to be honest with you, the first time we tried the Miracle Gel wasn’t that great. But that’s all on us because we were so excited to try them we didn’t wait long enough between the layers and ended up with some ugly bumps. But the second time was pretty amazing. Our nails looked just like we’ve spent 50 CHF at a solon on them. Tip: try to be a bit more patience than us. ;)
But the real question is, did the pretty mani last 14 days long?
We had 5 straight days a flawless looking nails without any chipping even though we did the dishes and other stuff that are pretty bad for a nice manicure. So definitely not 14 days for us, but we’re still very happy about how long it lasted. With normal nail polish we get like 3 days and shellac 7 good days without chipping, so we believe it really is a miracle nail polish!
From our point of view it’s a pretty great option for at-home gel polish without the harming UV light. So we want to give one of our readers the chance to win a set of two Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Colors (which she can choose on her own) and one Top Coat. All you have to do it go over to our Instagram account @soeursenvogue for further instructions. The winner will be chosen by the end of week. Good Luck!
