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!
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,:(

These sally hanson nail polishes are Very reasonably priced. They are an Easy economical alternative to salon gel nails. I am Very happy. There are many colors and many choices to pick from. Will definitely buy more colors! I've already spread the word among my friends.
Clara Teresa from Lawrenceville GA
Love the color very elegant and was smooth to apply not clumpy . It's not sheer so you get a touch of color .
Mia from California
The color is not in the red shade I was expecting, but it's still a nice color. The red kinda bleeds on the top clear coat…maybe I should have waited longer before applying? Disappointed that the color is already chipping after only 1 week.
Dana from MS
This is the prettiest blue nail color! Very similar to OPI, without the higher price tag. It goes in smooth and has such a vibrant blue color!
Lori from Buffalo NY
Don't waste your money like I did! this is almost white, very chalky and impossible to get a good polish. I did buy a darker color and hope that at least will work better.
Nic from NJ
Doesn't make nail hard
Mars from Philadelphia
I can't wear normal nail polish on my nails b/c it will chip immediately. This polish does last longer, but I see small chips appearing once my hands get wet. Tried twice (second time let them dry in the sun). Can't last a even a week.
Rahni from Colorado
It was a little harder to use than my regular nail polish, but that may just be from lack of experience with gel like products. It's a product I would try again just to make sure if it was human error or not.
April S from Palmdale, CA
I'm loving my new Miracle Gel polish! It's really strengthening my nails and make them look great!
Cathy0710 from Chicago
The brush is horrible. The polish itself goes on terrible. The color however is absolutely stunning. Unfortunately, I will be returning.

I have four different colors of this Miracle Gel polish, two different pinks and two different blues. The pinks stay on/unchipped for several days, but both of the blue shades (Flash-ionista and Sprinkled with Love) barely last 24 hours. They are absolutely beautiful, but do not last on my nails.
KDub from CALIFORNIA
I've tried this polish three times now (three different colors), and each time it's not a good outcome. Too shear, no staying power, and worst of all, it shrinks as it dries. An hour after applying it, even using a curing lamp and base/top coat, it's shrunk down past the tips of my nails. I really like regular Sally Hansen polish and products, so it's a bummer the gel polish isn't great.
As far as an at-home "gel" manicure goes, Essie is the polish I'll stick with. It's a bit pricey, but it coats well and doesn't shrink.

It chipped right away and rubbed off on all the paperwork I deal with.
jack from bridgeport CT
For the price it's good but because i have a sensitive nose strong scents make my head hurt and this polish definitely has a very strong odor to it
Brid from Ohio
I got the black polish and I wear it so much. It's so pigmented you barely even need two coats. I love this miracle gel formula because it dries pretty quickly and stays on much longer without chipping.
Krisha from Watauga TX
Went on smooth and stayed on for awhile. Love the color options as well.
Hayden from Spring Hill, FL
The color is just so pretty. I do have to do 2-3 coats just so it gets that perfect color. But over all it applies really good!
Fay from Michigan
I got the Electric lime color and let me tell you even after 5 coats the polish is still super sheer. I ended up trying using a white polish underneath it and it still took 3 coats not including the whitejust to get a somewhat noticeable color.
Rosemary from Mooresville, NC
Stays on with no chips for 2-3 weeks

First time purchasing it I'm glad I did it's beautiful my hands snd nails look amazing.
Ker from Florida
I was looking for a gel polish for at home. Tried Essie, which I was surprisingly disappointed because I like that line. Sally's polish is better as the two coats actually coated the nails. Followed by the top "gel" coat. Nothing different from a polish and top coat that is not gel. Color is nice but I'm thinking gel nails are either a professional application or you need the gel light.
KimberlyW from Portland, Oregon
It took 3 coats of polish and the color was still shear. Applied thin coats and had bubbling. Polish began chipping off my acrylic nails after three days.
DL from Indiana
Today is day 7 of wearing the Miracle gel polish and top coat. So far, it isn't chipping. I have the color Little Peony. I'll try a dark color next.
Amber from Texas
I ordered Fuchsia Fever because the pictures show a hot pink...it is Pepto Bismol pink. Not only is it not the color pictured, it is streaky & matte looking.
*I also ordered the Friends collection colors & they are good.
Farla from OH
Followed the instructions and chipped within two days. No different than standard polish. Weigh the cost with other options.
