Influenster Vox Box – Sally Hansen Miracle Gel
It’s been a while since I qualified for an Influenster Vox Box…I’ll admit, I may not have been keeping up with all the surveys, my inbox is a bit of a mess…something like 40k emails in there, 99.99999% of them trying to sell me shit.
In any case, Influenster and Sally Hansen sent me Miracle Gel Nail Polish in “Sugar Fix” – a beautiful periwinkle blue – and Miracle Gel Special Effects Top Coat in “Crystal”. The polishes go for $10.99 each at Ulta, but I received these complimentary from Influenster and Sally Hansen for my honest review.
And I will be honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Miracle Gel. I last tried the line shortly after launch in 2014 – I received a set in an Allure Beauty Thrills Box. It was thick and goopy and streaky. I feel like they changed and/or improved the formula though, because “Sugar Fix” was a breeze to work with. There were no streaks and the color was vibrant. I did not use a base coat, but it finished perfectly smooth in two very light coats.
I finished with the Special Effects Top Coat in “Crystal” and I was stunned at the effect. What was once a plain blue polish now has a brilliant pink shimmer – the pictures don’t do it justice. The top coat dried very quickly – almost as quickly as a fast dry top coat.
I’d been ignoring the Miracle Gels whenever I came across them on clearance, but now I may start seeking them out to use with this top coat – I absolutely love it!
