Floral Mani | Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish Review

Hello beauty babes! Thanks for stopping by! Today I am sharing a simple floral mani I created recently using these awesome water transfer nail decals. AND I also have a little review as well. Have you heard about the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish!?
A couple weeks ago I walked into CVS and saw this display of new Sally Hansen Polishes. Now normally (at least lately) I have not been so into new nail polishes. If you watch my Youtube Channel or follow me on Instagram, you know that I had practically given up on nail polish once I discovered the ImPress Nails. Why? Well because I am a busy mom of 3... It seems I can never put on nail polish, without it denting, or messing up before it dries! And to top it off... It usually chips within 2-3 days! The ImPress press on nails look amazing and last a week...

However, I was actually very intrigued by this new Polish because it said "Miracle Gel" - No Lights needed! I had always wanted to try a gel polish for the fact that it lasts longer. However, I really did not want to pay all the money to invest in the expensive polish and even more expensive lamp that is required of a gel mani. Now these polishes are still on the pricey side, however I was curious if they would really do what they claimed: To Last UP TO 14 days. I thought, if thats the case these could be worth the price...
Luckily they came in singles for just under $10, and then you could get a package deal 2 for only $16. So I got the package deal to try. I posted my results (a photo every other day) on instagram. If you are curious to see the original results, you can find the photo of my nails on day 1 here, and day 10 here. I'll tell you right now, I was VERY impressed with the results. Now I only went 10 days, because even though the nail polish still looked decent, I was just ready for a change!
Overall, I was extremely impressed by this polish! The fact that it lasts so long without chipping, seriously is miraculous! Another thing I loved was that these polishes go on pretty opaque - the directions say to apply two coats of color then the clear miracle gel top coat over it. Which I did, and it makes for a beautiful, fully opaque and shiny look! And lastly I was also very impressed with how quickly these polishes dry. Its not like insanely quick, but for as thick and opaque as these polishes are, I was surprised it didnt take forever to dry. Which as a busy mom, I really appreciate! I just dont have the time to sit and not touch anything waiting for polish to dry! So yeah... I highly recommend. In fact, i loved the polish so much, I went back and bought two more colors... I would have bought more, but by the time I went back - the entire display was practically sold out! So looks like Im not the only one who loved these polishes. ♥ So if you're local Walmart or CVS isnt sold out and you have been wanting to try these polishes, I definitely recommend you do!

Golden Plum EOTD

Hello beauty babes, I am back with a new My Beauty Addiction look to share with you today. No video, just some photos to inspire you. ♥ I think this is a great look to wear in transition from Summer to Fall. The gold and glitter is bold and fun for Summer, but the cool matte plum shades balances it out as we are heading into Fall and cooler weather. Goodness I can hardly believe I am saying that. This year has literally flown by!
