Good morning polished world! How are you all today? I'm doing quite well! I'm actually quite proud of myself that I'm getting this post up today. Usually when I go through and do a batch of photo editting, I decide to skip the post and give myself a day off. For some reason though, I have a spurt of blogging energy and am here with another post!
Today's post is a manicure I did with three of the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes. I have seen mixed reviews in regards to this line, but was really eager to try them. As a person who tends to keep their manicures on for 3-4 days, I'm always looking for something with longevity that also has a wide variety of colors.
Today's rose manicure I'm sharing with you was done before Tuesday's blue daisy manicure using Tidal Wave. I can tell you that my first experience was great and I'm excited to use them more often! Especially for nail art!
Let's take a look at my manicure!
- Sally Hansen - Pink Cadillaquer
- Sally Hansen - B-Girl
- Sally Hansen - Wet My Thistle
- Sally Hansen - Fuchsia Flare
Let's start off talking about B-Girl. Such an awesome light blue/mint tinted polish. Really something I do not own in my collection and I'm thrilled it is part of it now. Applied evenly in two coats with a really brilliant shine without top coat.
Pink Cadillaquer is such a pretty pale pink polish. Applied evenly in 2 coats, if you are light when you apply coats, you might need to do three for full coverage. I didn't have a problem though with two. It also worked great as a nail art polish. It covered over B-Girl and the white lines perfectly for the base of the roses. It also didn't dry too fast so it was easy to work with and to get the shape I wanted to in regards to the rose.
Wet My Thistle is an awesome light green polish which I can see myself using a lot for floral manicures. It reminds me of FingerPaints Grassy Knoll which has become one of my favorite greens. I'm very happy to have it as part of my collection because you can never have too many greens that are this shade. I'll for sure be using it as a base for a manicure in the near future.
When it came to top coat, I decided to use both my INM Out the Door and the Miracle Gel top coat to test the longevity of the polish. My index and ring finger had Out the Door, and my middle and pinkie had the Miracle Gel top coat. After three days, the wear on the nails were identical. There were no major chips, and the edges didn't shrink. I preferred my Out the Door because it dried a lot quicker than the Miracle Gel top coat.
What do you think? Fan of this manicure? Used the Miracle Gels?
The Sally Hansen Miracle Gels are currently for sale at major retailers.
Until next time, <3.
