Hello sweetie! 😉 (Doctor Who fans out there?) I hope you are ready and rarin’ to go on this Tuesday morning! 🙂 Sally Hansen has re-formulated their Miracle Gel top coat and to celebrate the new top coat, they are coming out with 2 new collections and 6 limited edition shades. Today I have 5 of the new Miracle Gel Limited Edition polishes. These will be available for $14.99 for a polish and a top coat duo pack.
I wanted to show these without the new top coat to show you how incredible the shine is on these polishes! All of the polishes, though, had a tendency to bubble just ever so slightly.
Blue Hue is a really gorgeous sky blue polish. This is 2 coats.
Teal Twin is a green-blue nail polish – not my favorite color, but that’s my own personal opinion. This will stain your nails though, so if you want to follow Sally Hansen’s direction of applying without base coat, be forewarned that you’re going to have to scrub your nails. This is 2 coats.
Get It Bright is one of those “yowza” polishes that I just adore! The formula was slightly patchy though. This is 2 coats.
Up the Ante is a beautiful warm-toned purple. Another gorgeous polish! This is 2 coats.
Geo-Mint-ric is one of those lovely mint-green polishes that I adore. It is slightly lighter than my photo shows though. Surprisingly, this is also a stainer! This is 2 coats.
I decided to wear-test the new top coat with Geo-Mint-ric. Sally Hansen says that the new Miracle Gel top coat will “volumize as it protects” and that the new top coat formula will “deliver 2x the volume to your manicure.” They claim that the result (when following their directions of no base coat, 2 coats of polish, and 1 coat of top coat) will be a “manicure that resembles a UV / LED cured gel polish and up to 14 days of color and shine.”
While applying the top coat, I did notice a tendency to bubble and get stringy as I was applying it. Now I know top coats tend to get stringy after a few months use – but brand new? Kind of ridiculous, in my opinion.
I wear-tested Geo-Mint-ric for a full 6 days – a long time in the life of a polish-aholic! You can see that in the photo above, the nail polish is starting to develop cracks in it, as well as a few chips here and there. I had minimal tip wear on both hands, though my dominant right hand had a few more chips in it than my left hand.
I don’t think I would have received a full 14 days wear, but I am impressed that I had 6 days of wear (through minor housework, showers, pool time and computer work) without major wear or chips.
Since each of these polishes comes in a duo pack with a top coat for $14.99 and are not sold individually, my picks are for Blue Hue and Get It Bright.
Is this something you’d be interested in? Which color appeals to you the most?
