Right on the Nail ~ Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish Review and Swatches: Red Eye

 *press sample*


Sally Hansen Red Eye (2 coats)

Happy Friday! It was such a beautiful Good Friday, and I hope your Easter weekend is off to a good start. Oh man, look how creepy and long my nails were! Ugh, that just shows you how old these swatches are. Oops! Good thing the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes are still available. These are supposed to prolong your manicure for up to 14 days with no LED or UV light needed. Oh, and they can be removed like regular nail polish. So, how does this work? The main product you will need is the  Miracle Gel Topcoat. You can use this with the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes (like I do here) or regular nail polish with the gel topcoat. Think of this as a drugstore version of the CND Vinylush polishes.

Tonight I have Red Eye which is a bright tomato red creme. Not very groundbreaking color-wise, but it's all about the formula and lasting results. So, how did it do? Unfortunately I don't have 2 weeks to fully test these, but my mom had great results with no significant chipping for around 5 or 6 days. I went 3 days with no issues, and my hands are sweaty in nitrile gloves all day every day. This product seems to be variable based on body chemistry, so this may not work as well for you. The polish and topcoat retail for around $10 each, but there is often a bundle pack of both for a discount. I think this is a little steep for drugstore products, but is well worth it if it works for you.
