Product Review: Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™

sallyhansen

Stars: 5/5

Cost: $9.99

Pros: I’ll be real with you, I’m not really a nail polish kind of gal. I only really get my nails done on VERY special occasions. The past 7 years I’ve had my nails done professionally TWICE, yes twice. Once for my wedding, and once for my bikini competition in April. I was kind of skeptical when I saw I would be receiving the Sally Hansen Voxbox from Influenster, I didn’t know what to expect since I usually do a horrendous job at painting my own nails. I was actually BEYOND satisfied with the polish I received; compliments of Sally Hansen and Influenster. First of all, I loved the flat brush, it definitely helped me keep a steady hand and apply even strokes of polish to my nails without getting any on my hand or creating bubbles underneath the surface. The quality is amazing, definitely salon quality and shine like the bottle and packing advertises. I can’t stop looking at my nails! The shade they sent me is vibrant and fun, I will definitely be purchasing this polish in the future, I can’t wait to try their different colors. It was so easy, I’m actually quite impressed with myself as well as the polish.

Cons: Literally my ONLY feedback would be the drying time. I feel like the polish remained a little tacky and sticky an hour or more after finishing my coats. I did the recommended 2 color coats and 1 top coat but it still took a while to dry. Other than that, I’m in love with it!

Enjoy!

Exciting news for me last night when I opened my email…. I earned my FIRST badge with Influenster! I participated in an eBay challenge where you write 2 guides on topics that have not been written about. There were certain requirements you had to fulfill before submitting your guide:

  • Your guide had to include at least 1 photo
  • Your guide had to include at least 3 links
  • Your guide must have at least 350 words and 4 different sections

You can check ’em out here! I actually ended up writing 3 initially so I could earn a $25 eBay gift card, and they sweetened the deal by having you write 2 more for an eBay VIP badge AND another $25 gift card!

This site is completely FREE! They send complimentary VoxBoxes as well for product review purposes. I just received my Sally Hansen VoxBox in the mail yesterday! I can’t wait to try out the new Gel Manicure polish this weekend for my friend’s wedding. I’ve never tried Gel Manicure polish, so this will be a first for me.

I have high hopes for this product! I’ve only ever gotten shellac once, and I loved it while I had it, but once removed my nails were so weak! I really hope this Gel Manicure is the solution to my nail polish woes! I will be writing a review as soon as I try it out, so stay tuned!

On top of that great news, I will also be receiving a complete supplement line from my sponsor Femme. They are launching their new Zip, Fit, Firm line of pre-workout, BCA complex, and a Carnitine blend for fat loss. I’m extremely excited to try it out, especially since I’ve been so happy with their Peach Skin Firming Cream. I’m not sure when it should be arriving in the mail since they are based in Australia and it took nearly 5 months for my first product to arrive. It turns out they sent my Peach Skin Firming Cream several times, it just kept getting lost in the mail somehow. I’m not surprised, IPSY had a hard time finding my house too!

Plenty of great opportunities ahead! I’ve been very blessed this past year and I’m extremely thankful. I will admit I was very discouraged when Quest Nutrition didn’t follow through with their offer to become a brand ambassador for them. I’ve worked really hard to get where I’m at today, putting in the effort to reach out to plenty of company’s, promoting myself and my lifestyle, and not giving up. It’s been a crazy ride, but things are starting to fall into place.
