I love gel manicures and have been wanting to try an at-home version forever. I recently saw a post on Instagram about Sally Hansen Miracle Gel, and decided to give it a try! I purchased the set which included birthday suit + top coat and then purchased wine stock a few days later. I've been trying them out for a few weeks, and really like them! Normally my manicures (usually with Essie polish) last 2-3 days before chipping when I do it myself and 3-4 days when I get them done at the salon. The at-home mani with the miracle gel lasted about a week before chipping, which is great. It's not truly a gel manicure - the polish isn't hard and doesn't dry instantly, nor does it keep its lasting luster like a salon gel mani - but it's a darn good alternative! I wouldn't get this done before a vacation - it wouldn't last - but for day-to-day life, it's a good alternative to the nail shop. The set will last you 10+ manicures easily, and costs a tiny fraction of what 10+ salon manicures would! This would make a great stocking stuffer or small gift for a friend!
