The Secret To Making Your Mani Last For Days

We've long replaced our standing manicure appointment for a weekly DIY project at home. It's more convenient, way cheaper, and gives us the opportunity to perfect our painting skills. On any given Sunday night, we're hunched over our digits in hopes of smudge-free, shiny tips that will last 'til Friday. But, come Hump Day, our nails are mysteriously chipped, nicked, or scratched.
While we all know gels last longer than regular lacquers, the thought of enduring a tedious salon appointment so a technician can apply and take off the difficult-to-remove polish has us running in the opposite direction. That's why we're sort of dying over Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™ — a two-step at-home gel polish that results in up to 14 days of color and shine without the need for UV lamps.
Watch above to see how you can ace your next paint job with the Miracle Gel™ color and top coat, and then have your own glorious Sunday as you give yourself a chip-free gel mani in your jammies. It just doesn't get better than this.
