SALLY HANSEN NAIL POLISH COLLECTION | REVIEW

 Products mentioned:
'160 Shell We Dance'
'370 Commander in Chic'
'121 Golden Rule'
'210 Naked Ambition' 
 
(L to R) 210, 120, 100, 121, 370, 160


'160 Shell We Dance' is probably one of my favourites since you can vary the intensity of the colour depending on how many layers you apply. The first layer is like a clear nail polish with a pretty baby pink tint - which you can only see under certain light. Second layer is still translucent and gentle. The only down side about these is that by the third layer, you've had enough of waiting till it dries but it's worth it since its a pretty baby pink opaque colour.
 
***
How many layers recommended?
2 layers for a more opaque colour.
How long does it last?
Depends if you have a good top coat and what your daily activities are that could possibly chip it but overall they can tend to peel off easily if you apply many coats.
Why choose them?
This brand offers a lot more colours and also glitter nail polishes that vary from the tiniest shimmer to bigger glitter.
Are they worth the price?
Personally, after I discovered Essie, I think that would beat Sally Hansen.
Texture description
These nail polishes have more of a smoother feel as in they can peel off if you have more layers but the beauty of it is that the nude colours are translucent which means you can choose how you want it.

Miracle Gel - Is it worth it?
The miracle gel is a bit gimmicky since you have to buy that extra special top coat which rarely does a difference, and also you need to buy the 'gel formula' nail polish only which doesn't give as much colour options. Personally for me, they still chip sometimes and since the name is so promising, it just kind of raises your expectations for it to be like real gel nails.
