I'm reviewing the wear on the new NO lamp Miracle Gel polish system by Sally Hansen today. For this manicure I used 2 coats of Pinky Rings for the pink ice cream. I let them completely dry then pressed on drip decals from Dead Set Babes. For the cones I used 2 coats of Birthday Suit from the Miracle Gel range and stamped with a Konad plate. I carefully peeled off the decals and placed glitter from Sportsgirl called Confetti. I finished with the Miracle Gel Top Coat to activate the Gel feature and to make my manicure last for an estimated 10 days.
So, how did it last?
I went with the same manicure for 5 days before calling it quits. The photo below in my non dominant hand. As you can see there is one tiny chip on my ring finger and minimal tip wear. So far so good!
The photo below is my dominant right hand, and the wear is much more noticeable.
On a lasting basis, I don't think I saw much difference between this Miracle Gel Top Coat and my Seche Vite Quick Dry. I can easily get 5 days from Seche, and a non chip 5 days too. I can't see this lasting for the estimated 10 days.....unless you are the faff around and don't really do much type. I washed my hair twice, washed kids hair, did dishes in hot water twice a day, made glass beads, and scrubbed a bathroom with bleach...so any manicure would do well to last through 5 days of that without chipping.
It's also important to know that the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel color polishes are just 'normal' polishes unless you add the Top Coat at the end. It's the Top Coat that activates the gel feature.
Did anyone buy this Top Coat system and what did you think?
