Today I have a swatch and review of the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel System to share with you. According to Sally Hansen The Miracle Gel system "delivers 2x the volume to your manicure - creating dramatically fuller-looking nails with a high-gloss mirror shine finish." They have released a new and improved top coat along with 20 new vibrant colors.
The shade I chose was Miss Wanderlust, which is a coral jelly polish packed with silver holographic glitter in two sizes. The formula on the polish was very good. It was easy to apply, it had good glitter payoff and I didn't need to do any glitter placement. The application was also very smooth and even. I did two coats with one coat of the Miracle Gel topcoat for these swatches.
If you're not familiar to the Miracle Gel system, it claims to be the next best thing to a regular gel manicure. This system does not need an LED or UV light to cure the topcoat. "Natural light creates a manicure that resembles a UV/LED cured gel polish and up to 14 days of color and shine." As for wear time for me - I got two days out of this manicure before it started to chip. Definitely not close to the 14 days that some people get. However, I know that polish wear time can have a lot to do with the chemistry between the wearer's body and the polish, so I don't fault Sally Hansen for that. It was very shiny when it dried and removed like a typical glitter polish with normal nail polish remover.
The one negative I have (and is just a personal issue, it probably isn't an issue for everyone) was that it took a while for it to dry so that I wouldn't get dents in the polish. Once it was dry, it still felt sticky - if that makes sense. If I would accidentally rub two of my nails together I would get a weird sticky feeling instead of the normal smooth feeling I typically get with polish. It did eventually go away, but I would say it took a few hours.
Miss Wanderlust is a very pretty coral polish, and if you like the Miracle Gel system or want to give it a try, I say go for it! I've seen quite a few reviews that have said they get great wear out of this polish. The Miracle Gel System is available at chain drugstores and mass retailers nationwide now. The Miracle Gel Colors and Top Coat cost $9.99 each and the limited edition duos, which consist of one color and one bottle of topcoat, are $14.99.
