SALLY HANSEN NEW! Miracle Gel Shades from the 2016 Voyager collection : Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings! The temperatures are rising, Spring Break is coming for many of us and we're (hopefully) going to be out and about more often! The time to stay in, curled up in our PJs, binging on Netflix and changing our manis on a daily basis may become elusive. But,even if we're going to be busy and going to be out in the sun, we want our manis to still look good and look good for longer. Don't you worry, my darlings! Sally Hansen's new MIRACLE GEL™ Voyager collection to the rescue!

A little about the collection, first :


Amp up for adventure abroad with the latest shades in the Miracle Gel™ color and top coat duo packs.

Take a jaunt! Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel™ journey will keep your manicure looking great for up to 14 days. The revolutionary gel manicure system with no light needed is the ideal travel companion, boasting six new fashion-forward hues in its Voyager collection. Each shade is accompanied by our Miracle Gel™ 2X Volume top coat in a duo pack. This plumping top coat must be used together with our Miracle Gel™ shades for up to 14 days of color and shine.

The Voyager collection for 2016 consists of 6 new cremes in Sally Hansen's signature MIRACLE GEL™ formula. I have 3 to share with you today. Now, I'm torn about these three--while I love the consistency of the almost jelly-like formula, which is not to thin and not too thick, I did find application to be tricky. They go on so smoothly but do tend to streak, with patchy areas. They needed every single one of the 3 coats I applied to get them to where I was satisfied and I found that more brushstrokes meant more streakiness. I did try them without a basecoat so it makes me wonder if that may have been the problem--stay tuned for further testing! In the meantime, my advice is to load up your brush and try to cover your nail with the minimum number of brushstrokes--Sally Hansen's wide brushes are fabulous and the results of your patience will be really beautiful, shiny manis! Unless mentioned specifically below, the swatches below show 3 coats of each polish, topped with 1 generous coat of the 2X Volume top coat to finish the look. With all that said, on to swatches!

Headed Nude-Where is described as "a beachy neutral that calls to mind endless sandy strolls." Such a flattering nude!

Flushed Wanderer is described as a "muted blush tone." There are neutrals and there are neutrals I love. This happens to be one of them! The mauve undertone is so lovely!

Carry On Blue is described as an "aqua hue that will transport you to tropical ocean views." Lovely, bright, happy shade of blue that's perfect for Spring and beyond!

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) .
