From a young age, I have always loved getting my nails “done”. Something about having them professionally painted was relaxing and they seemed to last forever. Realistically, in my adult life, I do not have extra “me time” to sit at the salon. Not to mention the expensive price tag that comes along with getting your nails done professionally every two weeks! I will admit, though, I have to have my nails painted otherwise my bad habit of biting them rears its ugly head.
I am constantly on the lookout for a new formula of nail varnish that not only looks great but is also easy to apply and fast drying. All of these qualities can be found in gel manicures but I simply do not have the time to sit under a black light even at home. Sally Hansen products have encouraged me to try out the new Miracle Gel polishes, which truth be told I have rather high hopes for!
This new system requires two easy steps and the natural light does the all the rest! By creating a manicure that resembles a UV / LED cured gel polish without the long waiting periods and claims to last up to 14 days without chipping, as can be most commonly found with regular varnish applications, I am in heaven!
I decided to give it a go on a morning we were rushing out the door. I first painted my nails with the lovely color pictured above whilst my son was eating breakfast. Then onto the second step….
Next, I applied the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel clear top coat. I have to say the wide brushes make painting your nails so easy and precise. The gel lacquer glides on and dries within minutes of applying, filling any spots you may have missed and evening out your nail varnish. This was such a delight to use and I am excited to report that it lasted 18 days without any signs of chipping or flaking off!
There are many different colors available in this nail polish line. No matter your favorite hue, you will definitely find a shade to match your personality and style.
Did I mention I also shaved about thirty minutes off my morning routine from other fast drying nail and hair products I have tried in the past? Conair Infiniti Pro 3Q Hair Dryer has given me yet another reason to hit the snooze button! I have long thick, dark brown hair that is naturally curly. Combine that with some frizz issues and the humid climate where we live and we are talking about a daily hair taming ritual just to look halfway decent in the morning.
The 3Q in the product name stands for quick, quiet and quality. After the last week of using this blow dryer, which uses 70% more air pressure, I have been able to dry my hair in way less time than before! If that is not enough to get you ladies excited, it also a lot quieter than most other hair dryers I’ve used. I can now dry my hair during nap time without waking anyone up; insert Mom happy dance! This product definitely lives up to the hype!
