Most Helpful Positive Review It works!
First things first, you MUST use the top coat with polish for it to work 100%. I noticed some bad reviewers weren't using top coat. Second, you MUST allow for the polish to completly dry between coats (I let it dry 10 minutes between coats and do 3-4 coats)Then a final coat of the special topcoat and let it dry THOROUGHLY. I am talking a good two hours. Also it does say you need "natural light" during dry time. Something like a window on a sunny day... That makes a huge difference. I did it last night after dark and used a table lamp to "cure" it and it worked "OK". I have a couple pitting areas where I think my sheets were touching overnight. I just covered the spots with a nail art sticker and another clear coat and you can't even tell. Most days I do this on Saturday morning and it truely does come out perfect if done right. I do notice chipping around day 7 but honestly I work in health care and my hands go through a lot. So color me impressed.
Another thing I haven't seen mentioned in the reviews is that you can use the special gel top coat with REGULAR nail polish also. I had some Sally's Wine Hard as Nails stuff that I loved the color but it would chip literally the next day. I used two coats of the regular wine and the gel top coat and I swear I got sick of it before it wore off! It lasted 8 days before I finally took it off. So that alone is a super bonus aspect to buying this. I was worried I'd never use my other colors again so that's good news.
I think you realy just have to set aside some quality time to this right to get the proper results. If done correctly it will hold up way better than reg. polish alone. All my old top coats are trashed now.
You can not use a base coat with this and make sure your nails are free of anything. File the edges and CAP off the polish and it'll go the distance.
The 14 days of wear slogan is a bit far fetched and I can only assume it's for those who can baby their nails all day. I am not one of them, but hey... I'm happy with 7 days!
Most Helpful Critical Review not 14 days!
I got this as a result of all the reviews i read..i am so dissapointed..its not cheap and not worth it.after 3 days the nail polish chipped of the top and on one nail half of the paint is gone. i attache a pic.Followed the instructions to the tee.i do my own nails and i do the same thing even add a base coat before polish but this time i didn t as per instructions.I have 20 opi nail colors and i can tell you that the apple red holds off way more.I have a toddler and i do a lot with my hands and i was really hoping this gel was it!it wasn t...i ll never buy it again bcoz it is expensive and not worth it,:(

Two coats or three and it applies smoothly
New Shiney Top Coat, NOT Shiney
MishyMash from Bellevue, WA
Used Miracle Gel since it's introduction, cause it's fast, easy, and durable. Sadly, the last few polishes quickly developed defective brushes. The plastic that holds the bristle cracks, causing stray bristles to stand out at a 90 degree angle and rendering it useless. Worse yet, the new shiney top coat delivers zero shine. May need to look for a new brand.

I used this on top a polish that was not part of the gel line. It worked really well. I am a full time mom who works with my hands hard all the time. I got my first chip I think it was day 3? That's actually pretty good.
QT from Charlotte, NC
Great polish and color. Lasts longer then basic polish which is great.
Pretty color and perfect for summer.

I wear sandals a lot in the summer, so this shade is perfect to show off my toenails.
Nice shade of blue

Love color pretty blue makes my nails look pretty
Joanjett from Kcmo
The color isn't really for me and the formula is no good. It's too thick going on yet chips easily. This polish ha no redeeming qualities. Save your money
Love this nail polish
CL from Columbia sc
I use this as a finishing coat over my nail polish. Love the sparkle!!!
Would not recommend
Carrie from Howell Mi
No matter how long I let each coat dry, it still never was completely hard. I could use my nail to make a mark in the polish. I could even press my finger down on it and still smudged it. I wanted to love it because I loved the color and the matte look but tried multiple times and still wouldn't harden. Would never buy again .
More blue than purple
Painted Toes from Orlando, Fl
The color is more of an iridescent blue than an iridescent purple which I was wanting. Nice color though.
Belen from Compton
After your color base you must use a clear coat & this is great

Pretty but poor quality
Kbear from Michigan
I love the colors offered, but even with the top coat it starts to chip and peel after a day. disappointing.
Kayla from New Hampshire
I usually like this nail polish but this color is a complete mess! Goes on very streaky and uneven with hardly any color in the first coat - so bad that it would likely take 4 coats to get a nice finish and that thick would just chip off right away. Don't waste your money on this one!
Super shiny, quick drying
LO from FAIR OAKS, CA
I love this polish. Super shiny, quick drying, professional look.
I live this nail polish!

Quick drying, full coverage, great color, professional look.
Great color but...
Kells from WI
Love the color options, but this can peel off within 12 hours! Not to mention, the brush seems to fall apart where it's connected to the base/stick, and the get gobs up in the bottle so fast.
Returned it. Took 4 coats and still not good coverage :(
Make Up lover 214 from NJ
I wish Wet & Wild had not discontinued their gel nail polish. THAT was great polish! This Sally Hanson polish was not nice. Took too many coats, dried not pretty at all. Nope.
Bad from Ha
Truly horrible nail polish. Takes forever to dry
Chips after a day!
Shann from Pa
I love the color is this polish but it doesn't stay on my nails well, it chips after a day and keeps chipping, definitely not a 7 day polish!
Becky from Ulta
I can't speak to the longevity of this product yet but I already want to take it off (and I just applied). Went on globby and messy. Used two different bottles that were just opened and both applicators had chunks missing. Which was already weird but I thought I could make due. Waited forever before applying same brand top coat and it swiped the polish underneath right off even though the color seemed dry. Don't waste your money
I miss Miracle Gel 2.0
Ash VA from Virginia
The top coat bottle changed from black to silver so I'm assuming that's when we went from 2.0 to 3.0. The black bottle top coat lasted longer. The silver bottle top coat sometimes flakes.
Neon peach not for me
Sjtc453 from MD
I love the Sally Hanson miracle gel line. Was super excited for neon peach but this color is not like others I have tried. Returning.
I *WILL* buy this again and again.
Baroness Isabeau from Tacoma, WA
I like this line a lot and this is my favorite color. Think this is my third bottle. Looks good on long or short nails. Works with whatever you are wearing. Doesn't last on me as long as they say but is still more than satisfactory.
Totally different color then expected
Kat from Modesto
Online this looks like a different color then what I received
