Review: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel™

I’ve tried gel polish before. While it lasted me a solid 4 weeks of chip-free nails, removing it was a hassle. I guess the tediousness of applying & removing it isn’t as convenient as regular nail polish. But I admit, I like that I had 4-weeks worth of lovely nails. Good thing, there’s now a regular polish that works as a gel polish and the best part? I can do my nails at home using it. Ladies, meet Sally Hansen Miracle Gel.

It was launched last year but this time around, it comes back with a new and improved formula.


The new and improved volumizing Miracle Gel Top Coat– adding to the award-winning Sally Hansen Miracle Gel collection: the most buzzed about at-home nail system and the closest thing to a salon gel manicure at home. When partnered with the Miracle Gel shades, Miracle Gel Top Coat volumes as it protects. The Top Coat formula delivers 2x the volume–creating dramatically fuller-looking nails with a high-gloss, mirror shine finish.


With the release of the new top coat comes the release of 8 new vibrant colors of Miracle Gel. The Tribal Vibe collection adds four new sun-baked shades to the permanent line up.

Tribal Sun is a fiery coral like the setting sun.

Per-Suede is the color of rich reddish leather.

Terra-Coppa melds the gleam of copper with the earthy appeal of pottery.

Buffalo Nickel is a cool, classic silver white.

Another new collection, Boho Chic brings together four festival-ready, saturated shades for free spirits everywhere.

Rhapsody Red updates classic cardinal red with a blue undertone.

Tipsy Gypsy is a bubbly, bright, pink.

Boho a-Go-Go is a deep, creamy eggplant.

Fish-teal Braid is an aquatic turquoise.

Again, I applied one coat each– love how vibrant the colors are.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel gives a look of a gel manicure at home without the top to a salon. Its 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.

What I like about Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is…

… application is easy, like a regular gel polish.

… it has 8 new vibrant colors.

… it gives volume & shine to the nails.

… the Top Coat locks in the Miracle Gel polish which in return makes it virtually chip-free.

… it is super easy to remove. Just using any regular polish remover.

Tested Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Boho a-Go-Go last month. I had it for three weeks and the second week was when I was in Bohol, basking under the sun. Still shiny on its third week and not a chip in sight! To think I’ve been wearing closed shoes while I’m at the gym thrice a week. Winnuuurrr.

A regular polish with an effect of a gel without its inconvenience, Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is perfect for ladies like me who takes weeks to get their nails done. 😉

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish retails for Php 495 each and is exclusively distributed by Rustans Marketing Corporation. It is available at Beauty Bar stores and online at You can also have your mani-pedi using Sally Hansen Miracle Gel at Design Studio Salon.
