Manicure: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Pinky Promise!




I took advantage of the recent Priceline 40% off sale and picked up a couple of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail lacquers (Pinky Promise and Sugar Fix) for only $10.17 each, instead of the usual $16.95. The revolutionary formula is apparently part lacquer and part gel, with no UV/LED lights required for curing. Your manicure is meant to last up to 14 days, which is a hell of a lot longer than ordinary polish. Personally, I'd be happy just to get 7 chip-free days of 'colour and shine'. I'm not holding my breath though, because I forgot to buy the top coat that activates the curing! Oops! Another advantage is that you can apparently remove Miracle Gel like you would normal polish; no soaking, wrapping or scraping (say what?) required.




I needed two coats to achieve opaqueness and cover a few streaky bits. The formula is super smooth and the brush is flat (much like the fan brush of the Bourjois 1 Second gel effect range) which means application is fast and easy. Also, I love this colour! Pinky Promise is a gorgeous light pastel pink. Miracle Gel gives a shiny, smooth-looking finish, and I must say, so far I'm impressed!










Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail lacquer (rrp $16.95) is available at Priceline, Target, Chemist Warehouse and Kmart.

  1. I like the blush colour one! I'd be interested to know what you think a few days on. I bought the varnish that supposedly stops chipping but I found after a few days mine chipped just as much as any normal nail polish. It was disappointing but then again I'm pretty hard on my hands and nails.

  3. Oh I love a mani and I find it so hard to get to the nail salon with 2 babies to get the shellac off. This sounds perfect for a busy mum that likes nice nails. You will have to let us know how long it lasts!!!

    1. It started chipping after a few days unfortunately (but not as badly as normal polish does)! I should have bought the top coat.
