My faves from SALLY HANSEN ROYAL SPLENDOR MIRACLE GEL™ collection : Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings! Summer is in full swing in NYC and by that I mean temperatures are in the 90s! Sheesh! For those of you out there who like it hot and are off to the beach/barbeque/the great outdoors, this post is for you! Do you need a mani that's going to last for a bit while you're out and about? Well then, Sally Hansen's new MIRACLE GEL™ Royal Splendor collection just might do the trick!

A little about the collection, first :

Introducing 7 new monarch-magnificent shades to the Miracle Gel™ lineup

Give your nails the royal treatment! Sally Hansen Miracle Gel™ will keep your manicure looking majestic with up to 14 days of color and shine. The revolutionary, #1 zero light gel manicure system boasts seven new splendid hues in its “Royal Splendor” collection. The Miracle Gel™ 2X Volume Top Coat must be used in tandem with the Miracle Gel shades to experience the long-lasting benefits of its no-light curing technology.

The “Royal Splendor” collection features seven new regal shades

  • Plush Blush: This powder pink features a Hall Of Mirrors-esque iridescence
  • Frill Seeker: Stop searching, you’ve arrived at the perfect resplendent, creamy-peach shade
  • Regal Rosé: Wine and dine — or let them eat cake — in a sparkling pale peony
  • Mauve-olous: Take the throne in this beige-tinged medium-pink tone
  • Off with her Red!: Hold court with this vibrant, true red
  • Can’t Beet Royalty: Bring it to the boudoir in this rich maroon
  • Prince Char-mint: A refreshingly Versailles-worthy pale verdant hue
When applied over the Miracle Gel™ shades, the Miracle Gel™ Top Coat volumizes as it protects – more chip-resistant than regular nail polish! Once applied, this gel top coat provides a high-gloss finish and mirror shine. The result: The look of a gel manicure at home, without the trip to a salon! Miracle Gel's two-step application is super-simple. First, apply two thin coats of Miracle Gel™ color to clean, bare nails. Then, apply one coat of the Miracle Gel™ Top Coat. Natural light cures the polish, yielding a manicure that resembles a UV / LED cured gel polish. It removes easily with regular nail polish remover.

For this post, I chose 3 of my favorite shades from this collection, all in Sally Hansen's signature MIRACLE GEL™ formula. I absolutely loved the formula of these three polishes--they are formulated such that they apply almost like a jelly or crelly. They went on oh-so-smoothly and dried really quickly. Yes, they are a bit sheer and I felt needed the 3 thin coats I applied for full opacity but application was such a breeze, I didn't mind that at all! Unless mentioned specifically below, the swatches below show 3 thin coats of each polish, topped with 1 generous coat of their 2X Volume topcoat to finish the lookWith all that said, on to swatches!

Mauve-olous is described as "beige-tinged medium-pink tone." Now, this is a nude that I totally love--the warm pink tone is so flattering and doesn't wash out or blend in with my complexion like some other nudes out there!

Off With Her Red! is described as "vibrant, true red." I went with only 2 coats of this juicy, bright red and I absolutely love how it looks!

Can't Beet Royalty is described as "rich maroon." Who says you can't rock a sexy, vampy shade in the summer?! Tell them to shush with this showstopper!

So there you have it, my darlings! You can find these and other Miracle Gel polishes at your local CVSRiteAidWalgreensWalmartKmart or Ulta (among other fine retailers) for the price of $9.99 (prices may vary in different states) .
