On My Nails: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in the shade ‘Purplexed’

19 Sep 2015

Happy Saturday, everyone! 🙂 Today I’m showing you what’s on my nails right now. I haven’t been painting my nails that often lately, because of all packing and unpacking of boxes I’ve been doing (we moved to another city not that too long ago). But now that we’re settled in (not completely, but we’re getting there!), I thought it would be a good time to give my nails some TLC.

I used Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel, which is a gel polish. The great thing about gel polish is that it is said to stay on you nails for 14 days without chipping. The regular kind can get a little time consuming, because it takes extra steps to get your nail polished. The last step, for example, is putting your nails under a LED light for a few minutes to cure the polish.

Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel, however, does NOT require light to cure and it removes like a regular polish instead of a soak off base. It’s easily done yourself at home. This is a huge deal to me, because going to a nail salon takes time and can get expensive!

The shade I used is called Purplexed and is a beautiful creamy, royal purple. I used 2 coats of Purplexed with Essie Grow Stronger a base and 1 coat of the Miracle Gel Top Coat that is sold separately.

The polish applies evenly and dries quickly, even with being inside without sunlight. The only complaint I have, is that the brush is really wide. I have small nail beds, so I have to be careful not to get polish on my nail beds. Precision is key and I don’t always have the patience. It’s worth it though! I love this shade!

So what’s on YOUR nails right now? 🙂
