Sally Hanson Nail Shine Miracle Top Coat | Review


Hey girlie's!!

If there's one thing i love is nice painted nails but sometimes the upkeep is hard and i hate it when i get the odd chip here and there so I've been on the look out for a good inexpensive top coat for a while. Whilst on my shopping adventures i picked up 'Sally Hanson's Nail Shine Miracle' a top coat that claims to reduce wear and tear for up to 10 days, well that was me completely sold....



I applied 1 thick coat on top of my original nail polish as directed and loved the immediate high shine glossy finish, it took a good 10-15 to dry completely without being tacky or me being worried id smudge it, so this would be no good if your in an absolute rush... Onto the lasting power, i found this top coat lasted good 6-7 days on me before it started to chip although the glossy finish wore off within a few days of application. I'm actually pleased with how well the top coat lasted considering I'm quite a hands on person, i do lots of housework and washing up and am constantly using my hands at work so my nails do go through quite alot. 




As you can see from the before and after pictures on Day 1 my nails where looking nice and vibrant and glossy, by Day 7 i had some slight chipping at the top of my nail and the polish doesn't look as glossy or as vibrant but it did keep quite good coverage of colour over my nail so i am quite impressed, its certainly the longest lasting top coat I've ever tried that's for sure.

I picked mine up when i made a Fragrance Direct order for £2.99 which i thought was a very reasonable price for a good top coat. The only real downside for me was the drying time as I'm always on the go but other than that i like it.

Have your tried any good top coats??? Let me know your thoughts???
