    Comments about Sally Hansen Miracel Gel:

    I have used this product several times in different colors. I find that the saying power of the Miracle Gel is hit or miss. I am consistent with my application. Sometimes it lasts almost 2 weeks although it wears at the very tip of the nail within days.
    However sometimes it chips the same day and within 2 days there are chips on almost all nails.
    I am not sure I would recommend this. It is decent when it works, better than your average polish, but when it doesn't work it can be worse than your average nail polish.

        THIS STUFF IS AWESOME. People that are giving it one star and saying chipped the first day? How is that possible? I feel like people must not be doing it right. Maybe not using enough of the top coat? I've had it on for a week now and it looks better than when I get them done at the nail salon. They are so shiny and went on so incredibly smooth.

          Comments about Sally Hansen Miracel Gel:

          I am really surprised by all the negative reviews here as I've had great results with this polish. I noticed some of the bad reviews have come after the user's first time applying the polish and in my experience, it takes a few tries to figure out which routine works best. I've found that the best results come when I carefully cap my nail, apply three color coats (giving them plenty of time to dry between), and then add one top coat. I can't stress enough how helpful it is to CAP YOUR NAIL.

          I also own the SensatioNail kit and although I agree that the lamp is more effective, this polish is quicker to apply and take off. It is REALLY nice not to have to wrap my fingers in 100% acetone for 10 minutes only to have to diligently scrape off polish for an hour like I do with an LED lamp. I also don't feel like I'm damaging my nails.

          This lasts about a week for me but sometimes I've noticed chipping a bit earlier. I have never had a regular manicure last more than a day and even my SensatioNail manicures only last for a week. This is an inexpensive, quicker alternative. Work with the polish a bit, figure out what routine works best for you, and you'll get good results.

                  It does what it says and more, you'll get at least 7-10 days of perfect nails. The brush is perfect size and shape and makes it so simple and quick to apply. Also, it's easy to remove. I have a lot of colors already.

                  Comments about Sally Hansen Miracel Gel:

                  I love the look and durability of gels, but one time doing that was enough for me. The UV light is dangerous, and the removal required dynamite and damaged my nails for weeks afterward. I won't use that again.

                  I am pretty tough on my hands. Whenever I apply polish, following every correct protocol, it won't last for 24 hours without some damage or wear. Even a professional manicure that is babied won't hold up for 48 hours, so I was pretty skeptical about this line from Sally Hansen. I decided to really put it to the test.

                  I applied this Saturday night, and then spent all day Sunday cleaning my house. I had my hands in buckets of soapy water, and I scrubbed the stove and burners, mopped my floors on hands and knees without any thought to my manicure. No gloves either. When I was done, there was not so much as a wear mark on the tips of my nails. Call me impressed.

                  I would have a hard time justifying buying any other polish brand, at least as far as for use on my hands. Nothing else I have ever tried gave me this performance.

                  This is a winner!

                      I am a logistics manager and always opening boxes and peeling off labels. I applied this polish and was impressed with how long it lasted. I have soft nails so polish usually starts to chip by Day 2. This polish lasted about 7 days for me, so I was happy! I like the neutral color too.

                          I have to say that after the second day using the Miracle Gel, my nail polish started to peel off. I am very disappointed.

                            I have a UV lamp for gel manicures at home but was hoping this might be a less time-consuming alternative. Unfortunately, my nail polish started chipping in less than 24 hours. The nail polish streaks a lot and has a weird texture. I will be sticking to my other gel nail polish system, that while more expensive, lasts much longer.
