Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Blue Hue (with reformulated Miracle Gel Top Coat!)

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Blue Hue
 
Sally Hansen recently reformulated their Miracle Gel Top Coat and when I tried it last week I was so impressed! Today I used it again with Blue Hue, which is one of the shades available in a duo pack that pairs the Miracle Gel top coat with a color for approximately $15. Such a pretty shade and I got perfect opaque coverage in two coats.
 
Here is what they say about the new formula top coat:
 
When partnered with the Miracle Gel shades, Miracle Gel Top Coat volumizes as it protects. The Top Coat formula delivers 2x the volume to your manicure - creating dramatically fuller-looking nails with a high-gloss, mirror shine finish

The result: the look of a gel manicure at home, without the trip to a salon! Miracle Gel's simple application takes just two steps. First, apply two thin coats of Miracle Gel color to clean, bare nails. Then, apply one coat of the new Miracle Gel Top Coat. Natural light does the rest, creating a manicure that resembles a UV / LED cured gel polish and up to 14 days of color and shine. The next best thing to a salon gel manicure, without using an UV / LED light AND removes easily with regular nail polish remover.

Wear Test: Reformulated Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat

Day 7
 
The above pic is after 6 full days of wear!!!!!!!!!! I am SO IMPRESSED that I am using SHOUTY CAPITALS! And lots of !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Seriously, look at that... slight tipwear, but absolutely no chips in sight. I took if off only because my nail polish ADD kicked in and I just had to wear a new shade. This reformulated Miracle Gel Top Coat is SO much better than their first try. #spreadthenews #yaysally

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Beatnik

 Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Beatnik
from the Boho Chic Collection
 
Sally Hansen reformulated their Miracle Gel Top Coat and released several new shades to go with it. I was excited to give it a try since I didn't have very good luck with the original formula top coat. My main concern was that the finish wasn't very glossy, and I'm excited to say that problem seems to have been corrected! The finish I got using the reformulated top coat was very shiny, as you can see above.
 
Here is what they say about the new formula:
When partnered with the Miracle Gel shades, Miracle Gel Top Coat volumizes as it protects. The Top Coat formula delivers 2x the volume to your manicure - creating dramatically fuller-looking nails with a high-gloss, mirror shine finish

I am so impressed already! I also feel like it dried quite fast. I am looking forward to testing it out and seeing what type of wear it delivers.

SinfulColors Back To School

Today I've got four shades from SinfulColors. They are all part of the 2015 Back To School collection, A Class Act.
 
SinfulColors Why Not
2 coats
 
Described as "a clear sky blue", this shade was insanely pigmented. Be very careful that you don't pool this around your cuticles, because it's hard to clean up. But so pretty!

SinfulColors Summer S-cool
2 coats
 
Described as "Robin's egg blue", I got great coverage with 2 coats.

SinfulColors Energetic Red
2 coats
 
Described as "classic fire engine red", this is so so pretty and almost a one-coater. I added a second coat to make sure I got even coverage, but with careful application, you may get away with just one coat.

SinfulColors Night Owl (glitter topcoat)
1 coat over Energetic Red

 
Night Owl is described as "multi-colored gilded 3D glitter" and just one coat over my base color gave good glitter coverage.
 

PRICE/AVAILABILITY:

$1.99 each at Walgreens and other mass retailers for August & September 2015.

SinfulColors Sinful Sunrise

SinfulColors Sinful Sunrise
1 coat over RADient
 
Sinful Sunrise is described as "warm pink with silver 3D confetti". It's part of the 2015 Back To School collection, A Class Act.
 
I decided to use it over SinfulColors RADient and I really liked the effect the glitter topcoat gave. One coat gave me pretty good coverage, although the first swipe out of the brand-new bottle was a bit lacking. You can see that on my pinkie finger. Once I dipped back in the bottle for subsequent fingers, I thought the coverage was perfect.
 
PRICE/AVAILABILITY:
$1.99 each at Walgreens and other mass retailers for August & September 2015.
