Most Helpful Positive Review Use correctly and it will work great
First of all, I can't believe anyone would rate this negatively when they did not use the product correctly. As the packaging and product description clearly indicate, this is a GEL polish meant to be used with an LED lamp. Using it on regular polish and being disappointed it didn't air dry is like washing your hair with lotion and saying the lotion is no good because it made your hair too greasy. Common sense, people... Anyway, I digress.
This top coat does exactly what it's supposed to do. 30 seconds under the lamp per coat and it's totally dry with no chance of smudging - way better than regular polish. You do want to be careful not to apply too thick of a coat so that it cures properly and doesn't get air bubbles. I actually use it with another brand's lamp and sometimes mix and match gel polish brands with no problems. Gel polish may take a little longer to apply and remove than regular, but to me it's worth the long-lasting wear, which is around 2 weeks.

It works. But would not be my first choise. It is pretty pricey for the size you get.. and it only lasts about half the life of the manicure. Is prone to pooling and moving while curing. And where it pools it will peel in just a few days.

Use this base coat with my Sally Hansen gel polish kit. Works great. Never chips. I use 1 base coat and 2 layers of the SH top coat. Stays 2-3 weeks without chipping. Highly recommend

Just as good as the salon!!!
Didn't work on my nails
Stacey from Dawsonville, Ga
I used this product with the Orly nail bonder base coat & my polish started chipping within 3 days.
The actual worst
Cheyanne from okc
I don't think Ive ever used a more gloopy gel polish. It took 4 coats to become somewhat opaque and was just a giant pain to use.
If you can paint your own nails get this!!
Angel from AL
I used this product to do a gel manicure. I followed the directions exactly and it came out amazing. I am so pleased to have the ability to give myself a gel manicure without paying the prices to get them done! My budget is even more excited than I am! Thanks Sally Hansen!!

It's alright. It's not salon grade so don't even expect it to last long like when you get your gel nails done at the salon. It's shiny and of course quick dry. It's good for just everyday use like if you work in an office but if your work involves your fingernails a lot— it will chip. Surely. But yeah, it's a "OKAY" 🙂
I am not purchasing this again.
AMitch23 from Overland Park, KS
This product is terrible, the brush hardens and clumps after using it on 3-5 nails, when you try and finish your entire first set of nails it's already too hard making your nails look clumpy and bumpy, I've returned and repurchased 4 bottles and it has not gotten better, it's a waste of money.
Best Top Coat for Gel Nails!

Let there be Light!
Sandy from St Paul MN
The gel polish chipped within a day . The polish with a light, base, polish and top coat works well .You get everything you need in the kit.
Does not dry
Sherry1108 from New Jersey
I've used the whole kit three times so far with this top coat and it does dry it stays tacky quite a bit and followed the instruction carefully
Danon from Kansas
This has not helped the polish stay on really at all, I was hoping it would considering the reviews were good but I wouldn't recommend for long lasting polish.
AudreyHepburn1010 from Calgary Canada
The shine was grate felt like I got it done perfetionaly but not even after 24 hours it started to chip but idk if it was something I did or just the product itself
TX T from Houston, TX
The products itself is great, just not great for my nails. I used it for about 3 weeks until I noticed my nails splitting and getting very weak. I did not peel the polish off, I took it off with nail polish remover. I would not recommend this product.

it has a sticky layer that you have to wipe off
Kimbo Slice from Philadelphia
I have a UV/LED lamp and I bought this specifically to use for my gel polish. Never dried. Had my hand under for 10 minutes and still tacky.
Steph from Oklahoma City, OK
I've been practicing gel at home starting with the red carpet manicure kit. It's been hard to maintain and keep longer than a week until I got this top coat. It's easy to apply and keeps the nail polish in tact. I would definitely recommend it.
Best base and top coat brand I have tried
CR from Colorado
I have tried many different bands of the gel top and base coat and by far this is the best. I hope they keep selling it , its getting harder and harder to find in stores.
protects my vertical ridged nails from splits !
Sierraheartrock from California, United States
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel was recommended to me by the doctor. Plus it looks great. So many colors to choose from, you can even do nail art. Since utilizing it 8 months ago my graphite art has really taken off, my fingertips typing or cleaning, design sewing leather all without discomfort from further nail splits. The Sally Hansen Gel polish really takes it to another level. Remember to remove the polish not peel it off to protect your nails. My nails were too thin to continue professional extensions. Sally Hansen Miracle gel gives the same great look I became used to professionally with salon nails, but without any of the pain changing extensions. Due diligence and determination got some engineers somewhere to make this stuff up so I can literally use nail glue to keep vertical ridges from separating except its pretty instead. BENEFITS all good. Thank you Sally Hansen.
I'm a bit disappointed.
Mary from Kansas City Mo
Very thin, and doesn't hold up like other brands do.
I would not buy this product again. It needs a light to dry!
Upset from Detroit, MI
Terrible, it peeled in two days.
passion4dance from chicago, il
I used this as a gel top coat over regular nail polish. I used it with an led lamp. My nail polish chipped in two days and within less than 5 days, the polish was peeling off.
Worst gel polish I have ever used
Tam from CA
This product was bubbly, thin and watery. By the time I had two nails done the first was already seeping off of nails and no color was left on ends and edges of nail. I prefer several other brands to this one.
Don't buy this...
Galpaige from Iowa City, IA, United States
It was gorgeous and it lasted a long time, until my whole nail started peeling off of itself. The polish didn't chip or anything, just the whole nails split in half. My friend told me not to get this and that it ruins your nails and I didn't listen. Now I'm stuck with half of a nail.
No! It needs a light to cure and not well marked.
Claudia from Tampa FL
It needs a light to cure and not well marked. Opened before I realized that. Not well segrretated in store either!
So disappointed! I am returning this product!
Ms. Chay from Harold, KY
I had applied the base coat, color (pink) and top coat according to directions. The next day, I noticed the polish had "shrunk" away from the edges of all nails. When I removed the nails wraps, I was shocked to see a pink smear over my nails, cuticles and fingertips. I tried removing the smear with a wipe and more remover. Didn't budge. I ended up soaking my nails in denture cleaner to remove the stain. I will be returning all products to the store.
