Did not dry well and did not apply evenly - Poor Quality and expensive
Used 2 coats leaving to dry in between than applied the gel coat. Polish did not apply evenly and did not seem to dry properly marked easily even after applying gel. Took it off within 1 hour...Very disappointing for the price paid.
Began process with step 1 and letting 2 coats dry 3-5 min in between. Then followed up with step 2. Tried 3 different times with 3 different colors, but tips are still peeling within 3-4 days. Clearly nothing like a gel manicure that will last me 4-5 weeks.

I have used numerous nail polishes over many years from high end polishes to the other end of the spectrum. Always the same problem presents for me ...... chipping after a few days, then I pick and peel it. I tried Sally Hansen Gel polish a year or so ago and for whatever reason wasn't particularly impressed. Just recently I tried it again and did something I never do. I coated it on thickly (still with only the three application strokes). It dried evenly and faster than I thought it would, so I put another thick coat on when the first wa...s touch dry. Followed up with the top coat in the same manner. I was shocked and amazed to find this lasted me approx 2 weeks before it started to chip!! Two weeks!! I've never had that happen. Perhaps the solution is the thicker coat. I love it. The colours I have been using are 270 and 110. Sally Hansen Gel is the solution for me.
Better than a standard Polish
Usually, when I use standard/other nail polishes, I barely get to 24 hours without it chipping, smudging and looking generally bad, and like it's already been on for a week, but this Sally Hansen stuff was recommended to me by a friend and work colleague, and I must say I am suitably impressed! It's been 4 or 5 days now, and I have put my nails through all the usual rough-and-tough, wear-and-tear stuff, and there's a barely a chip in sight! Yes, there area few chips on the tips of my nails .... where they are weak and brittle anyway, and where...I am using them to get food particles out of my teeth! But seriously, I have found this product to be quite good. It did take a little while to dry, as polishes do, (I gave it about 30 minutes just to be really sure) but you gotta expect that. Anyway, I'm happy with it and will be using it again. LOVE the 'flat' brush style too. Would have given it 5 stars if the drying time was a bit quicker.

I've been wearing Rimmel nail polish for years, and have noticed that on certain colours after a couple of days I start to get chips. So I decided to buy the Sally Hansen gel nail polish hoping that it would atleast last a week without chipping. Unfortunately after using the colour and the top coat, my nails chipped the next day. Very disappointed.
I wish I had read these reviews before buying this gel. I thought it was a UV gel, it doesn't go well with UV gels blended. wish.com cheaper and better.
High Hopes Diminished
I applied the first coat and waited 15 minutes before applying the 2nd coat. After waiting another 15 minutes, I applied the top coat. The nail polish went on gummy and did not last at all. I watched two Youtube videos to make sure the application was done correctly. I want my money back!

5 days no Chips
I have very long nails and I tend to get chips after 1 day.
5 days later and only a few tiny chips on the top of 3 nails, not really noticeable. Day 6 one of my nails peeled (ongoing issue for me).
The bottle promises up to 16 days and for me 5 days is amazing, this to me is the promise of putting nail polish on for a Saturday evening up to 4 days ahead and not having it look tacky and worn.
Removal with regular nail polish remover is also great, No more soaking in acetone and feeling like I'm scraping off a layer of my nail.
Looks good but overpriced
I had high hopes for this nail polish because my previous experience with Sally Hansen polishes were really positive. I have the shade Pinky Promise and After the first coat it’s pretty transparent and streaky but the second coat covered it nicely and made it more opaque. The top coat makes it perfectly smooth and it dries relatively fast. It Looks really good and definitely as good as a gel mani at a salon would look, the only downside for me is that after a few days the nail polish starts to chip and crack so this is quite a disappointment co...nsidering it claims to last more than a week without chips and the nail polish cost about $16 a bottle. Overall this nail polish looks good and dries in an adequate amount of time but is very overpriced for the quality.
I was excited about having an alternative to getting gels done at a beauty salon which is an expense I was trying to reduce so this alternative seemed perfect. Wrong!!! Polish chipped after 2 days, I tried a different color & still the same. At $14 a bottle I would have expected a better quality.
Waste of money
I was so happy with the finish of this product when I first applied it. It looked fantastic. I chose the colour birthday suit. However less than 24 hours later they all looked cracked and shabby. I removed it and reapplied and again within 24 hours it looks all cracked again. Definitely won’t waste my money on this stuff again. A $2 Kmart polish does a better job. It’s a no from me.
A waste of my money!!
I am extremely disappointed in my purchase of two colours and a top coat in this range. Both colours go on that they are bubbly or crack and last a maximum of three days at the most. I can not recommend this product as a replacement for gel or shellac nails. This product lasts about the same time as normal polish.
Let each coat dry for 10-15min, was still tacky and never really set.
After 20min it felt touch dry.
I literally washed my hours 2hrs after application. The polish slid off of my nails.
All of them just came straight off. No idea why. Tried again since, same thing. Waste of money. I could of gotten a spoilt batch but still I won't be buying again. Very disappointed.

Questions & Answers
Solution: I was about to throw my Miracle Gel away, or at least hide it down the back of the drawer when I tried putting the Topcoat on FIRST. That is, I used the #2 Topcoat as a base coat - and guess what! The polish is not nearly as streaky when applied over the Topcoat. It’s not ideal as a product such as this should have been thoroughly quality tested before being released into the shops, however it least saves people’s money when you would otherwise have been binning it. Just a note, 2 applications of Topcoat used as a base under the nail polish work even better.
