Press Release: Sally Hansen Reformulated Miracle Gel Top Coat and New Shades!


2 stunning new collections and 6 limited-edition shades also join the Miracle Gel lineup

These days, bigger is better when it comes to beauty. Following the major success of the first Miracle Gel launch, Sally Hansen has done it again, developing  the new & improved volumizing Miracle Gel Top Coat - adding to the award-winning Sally Hansen Miracle Gel collection: the most buzzed about at-home nail system and the closest thing to a salon gel manicure at home. 

When partnered with the Miracle Gel shades, Miracle Gel Top Coat volumizes as it protects. The Top Coat formula delivers 2x the volume to your manicure - creating dramatically fuller-looking nails with a high-gloss, mirror shine finish. 

The result: the look of a gel manicure at home, without the trip to a salon! Miracle Gel's simple application takes just two steps. First, apply two thin coats of Miracle Gel color to clean, bare nails. Then, apply one coat of the new Miracle Gel Top Coat. Natural light does the rest, creating a manicure that resembles a UV / LED cured gel polish and up to 14 days of color and shine. The next best thing to a salon gel manicure, without using an UV / LED light AND removes easily with regular nail polish remover.

To coincide with the release of the new top coat, Sally Hansen announces a total of 20 new vibrant colors of Miracle Gel

The Tribal Vibe collection adds seven new sun-baked shades to the permanent line up: Cream of the Crop (ivory with a hint of warmth), Tribal Sun (fiery coral like the setting sun), Rhythm & Blue (mirrors the hue of a bright blue sky), Totem-ly Yours (an appealing dusty rose),  Per-Suede ( the color of rich reddish leather), Terra-Coppa (melds the gleam of copper with the earthy appeal of pottery) and Buffalo Nickel (a cool, classic silver white). 

Another new collection, Boho Chic, brings together seven festival-ready saturated shades for free spirits everywhere: Rhapsody Red (updates classic cardinal red with a blue undertone), Tipsy Gypsy (a bubbly, bright pink), Boho a-Go-Go ( a deep, creamy eggplant), Beatnik ( a statement-making cobalt), Mintage (a medium-toned mint), Fish-teal Braid (an aquatic turquoise), Miss Wanderlust (packs colorful glitter into a soft stunning coral.

In addition, limited-edition duo packs pair the new Miracle Gel top coat with one of six summery colors: Blue Hue (a subdued, milk-glass blue), Teal Twin (a dark gemstone teal), Geo-Mint-ric (a vibrant spearmint), Get it Bright (the color of freshly sliced watermelon), Block Party (a tigerlily orange, tinged with coral), Up the Ante ( a medium-toned plum)

PRICE & AVAILABILITY: The new Miracle Gel Top Coat, limited edition duo packs, Tribal Vibe collection, and Boho Chic collection are available beginning July 2015 at chain drugstores and mass retailers nationwide. Miracle Gel Color Coat and Top Coat cost $9.99 each and the limited edition duo pack costs $14.99.

The Digit-al Dozen Does: Neons - Look 5

Whoohoo! Finishing this week strong and on-time. I love having daily posts but just haven't really been up to it lately, so the DD really pushes me to get my butt in gear.

Polish Used:
-KB Shimmer - White Out
-China Glaze - Can I Get An Untz Untz
-China Glaze - Point Me To The Party
-China Glaze - Let The Beat Drop

I love how this glitter gradient turned out - so bright and fun! (Although it was a bitch to remove lol). The three glitters from that collection actually worked perfectly for a gradient.

Let's check out how the ladies are rocking their final Neon looks for the week!

The Digit-al Dozen Does: Neons - Look 4

Today I have busted out some older colors for my Thursday look; check it out!

Polish Used:
-Salon Perfect - Yowsa Yellow
-Salon Perfect - Haute Pink

These colors were pretty hard to capture (story of my life); but trust me, this look was BRIGHT in person. It was pretty interesting that when I tried the blobbicure technique with these neons, it didn't really work out as it had with other blobbicures from the past. It must have had something to do with the formulas of the neons. Of course, check out my Instagram for some more pictures of this look.

The Digit-al Dozen Does: Neons - Look 3

For my third look I decided to create a simple saran wrap manicure; but alas, the colors did not want to corporate.

Polish Used:
-KB Shimmer - Lei It Again
-China Glaze - That's Shore Bright

Booo - this mani was really fun in person but the camera ate up the purple :-/ Don't worry, I snapped some cell phone pictures that you can check out on Instagram later today which do a better job at capturing both colors.

Check out the other girls Neon looks below:

The Digit-al Dozen Does: Neon - Look 2

Neons feel so perfect for summer, so let's jump right into my second look!

Polish Used:
-DearRus Noblesse - Venor 05
-DearRus Noblesse - Venor 17
-DearRus Noblesse - Venor 16

I felt like this look gradient (while it popped) needed a little something extra, so I added some fun stamping.

Polish Used:
-Konad - White

I used Bundle Monster plate BM-308 for this citrus image and it think that it really pulled this look together.

Take a look at how the other girls are rocking their second Neon looks below!



The Digit-al Dozen Does: Neon - Look 1

Happy Monday! I was unable to take part in the Digit-al Dozen last month, but this month I am back at it; with Neons!

Polish Used:
-OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
-MiniLuxe - Lolita
-MiniLuxe - Hingham
-China Glaze - Home Sweet House Music

For my first look I went with a grungy dry brush neon gradient. I love how bright the colors of this look are; they really pop against the gray background and the matte effect seems to work perfectly with this look.

Let's see how the other ladies of the Digit-al Dozen are kicking off Neon week!



Zoya - Paradise Sun Collection

*Press Sample

"Fully saturated with gorgeous micronized metallic sheen, these shimmering beauties are much like sunshine sparkling on water. Meant to be used as an independent color, these shades feature a full coverage, densely pigmented formula."

Today I will be sharing with you the 6 fun shades of the Zoya Paradise Sun Collection. All photos are shown with two coats of color without topcoat.

Genesis (ZP790) - Crystalline white with micronized metallic pearl finish. Designed to look like microfine diamond dust. 

Mae (ZP794) - Warm magenta pink with micronized metallic pearl finish, reminiscent of vibrant Mediterranean flowers. 

Aphrodite (ZP795) - Vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish and multi-hued flash that brings it to life. 

Selene (ZP791) - True teal with a micronized metallic pearl finish. A unique shade with an aqua fleck that resembles deeper layers of ocean water. 

Oceane (ZP792) - True turquoise with a micronized metallic pearl finish that reflects the clearest blue ocean waters. 

Isa (ZP793) - Deep blue-based purple with a micronized metallic pearl finish and an aqua flash that embodies the beauty of exotic island flowers. 

I found all of these shades to be pretty for summer. I really liked the white Genesis shade and the blue and green shade really popped off of my nails. Although they were slightly staining, but not too bad.

The formulas on all of the polishes were smooth and easy to apply for full coverage in two coats. The red shade was slightly more of a crelly finish than the others.

These polishes are available for purchase now at zoya.com.

Are you picking up any of these shades for yourself this summer?

Jindie Nails - Swatches & Review

*Press Sample

Today I have a couple Jindie Nails polishes to share with you. I received these, along with a couple others, for review so check these 3 out below and stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.

My Old Piano:

Paper Flowers:

Freeway of Love:

All of the above swatches are shown with 2 coats of color and no topcoat. The application as pretty good. Although it's always a toss up for me to use super thin coats but have trouble getting the glitters or using thicker coats and getting lots of glitters. I tried to settle somewhere in the middle with these lol.

I love the pink based shade of Freeway of Love and My Old Piano is definitely my favorite out of the two whites.

You can click the color names above the pictures to be taken directly to the Jindie shop for the colors. Also be sure to check out the official descriptions there too - she is super descriptive which I like when reading about a polish.

You can find Jindie Nails shop HERE.
