I’m not sure if I’ve ever worn a nail polish for 14 days before. After wearing Red Eye one of the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel shades I was really very pleased though. I thought for sure when a brand said that a color will last for that long it was going to really be a big fat lie but I can tell you this stuff held up really well. One of the things that I was happy with right away is the Top Coat. It dries fast and is just as good as a lot of the top coats that I use. Sometimes with new products or systems like this I find that the top coat is a total bust. Not the case here which is fantastic!
First let me tell you what I did it’s simple. I did one coat of Red Eye Miracle gel and then one layer of Miracle Gel Top Coat. I have to say I love Red Eye its a beautiful bright red polish! I was off my game and didn’t take pictures the day I painted my nails because I was showing this polish duo in a Chopping Block #16 Haul YouTube video. Hopefully you saw that video. In it I showed the duo and how my nails looked right after painting them. I decided later in the process to take pictures at the end.
The first several days were relatively normal. There wasn’t any chipping or tip wear. My nails looked fantastic. By day ten I was worried. I didn’t have tip wear or chipping but my nails looked a tad bit dull. The top coat wasn’t super shiny anymore. My nails still looked good don’t get me wrong it’s just that they weren’t perfect anymore but they were still great looking to everyone else.
So here is how my nails looked on the morning of day 14! I think they look pretty darn good! There is tip wear-that set in around day 11 which isn’t horrible. So there you have it. I really like these polishes and I’d get another nail shade in a heartbeat. Please chime in with your findings if you tried the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel “system”. I’d love to hear what your thoughts are!
