Happy First Day of Spring! I love to share brands here on Casual Contrast that are easily accessible to just about any reader. I consider Sally Hansen a high-end drugstore brand, so I love to review them – they are super easy to find and high quality. The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel line is a 2-step, LED-free, gel-like hybrid system consisting of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes and the 2x Volume Top Coat. Their newest release is the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Festival Floral Collection, six shades inspired by the free-spirited festival season of spring!
If you’re not familiar with Miracle Gel or “gel-like” systems in general, they offer extended wear without UV/LED curing and acetone soak-off. The polishes apply like traditional polish, but chemicals in the top coat polymerize when exposed to natural UV light, creating a stronger manicure over time. You can read more about it in my previous Miracle Gel reviews, like [this] post.
All swatches were done with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel 2x Volume Top Coat.
First up is Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Aqua Chakra, a teal creme. This is such a classic shade that is perfect for spring. This is two super creamy coats.
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Birthday Suit is a semi-sheer pinkish-nude. Again, completely classic and feminine. A simple manicure like this will complete any carefree festival outfit. This is two coats (a third may even out any streaks).
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Lilac Insomniac is a bold and vibrant purple-leaning magenta. Here I’ve used two coats, but this is so creamy and pigmented, you could almost get away with one!
Another classically carefree shade, Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Make Me Mauve is pink-toned mauve creme. Gorgeous. Two coats.
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Red Eye is a bold, vibrant red! You can’t go wrong with a red mani, that’s for sure. This is flawless in two coats.
I feel like I’m a woman of few words here, but there’s not much to say – these are all fabulous! If you’re looking for classic, wearable shades in a fantastic formula, then the Festival Floral Collection is perfect. If you’re looking for super unique or exciting shades – probably not so much. The Festival Floral Collection shades are available in duo-packs with the Miracle Gel Top Coat for $14.99 at major retailers and drugstores.
