Talon Tales: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Pink Tank and Top Coat

Gel nails are definitely here to stay and as the  technology has developed, we can now access gel nails at hoe as well as in the salon.  Fortunately, if you don’t want the faff of using a UV light to cure your nails  and strips of tin foil to remove the colour, Sally Hansen promise that you can get the gel look and wear (fourteen days) with a lamp free formula.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is available in over thirty shades and has a specific top coat.  The formula is quite thick but not gloopy.  It self levels very quickly and the short brush gives you a clean line near the cuticles without flooding the area.

Pink Tank is a bright vibrant creme pink shade.  The addition of the top coat changes the tone slightly making it slightly deeper.  You have to wait until your nails are very very dry before you add the top coat as the brush does pick up the colour.  The top coat is nice but in my opinion Seche Vite is better (faster drying, better shine and better brush).

I found the longevity of this polish – its main selling point, to be  really disappointing.  I can generally eek out five days of a manicure that I have taken time over.  Have sat down and carefully painted my nails and let them dry completely, I was a bit miffed to see some shrinkage on day three and then I was able to peel the colour off a couple of days later.


The colour is  nice but if you advertise a product as a no lamp gel product – I really do expect a minimum of seven days wear.  Is that too much to ask?  I don’t think so since Sally Hansen are saying fourteen days   wear.Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is available from Boots, Asda and other stockists and retails for £9.99
