Well guys, it’s happened. We are full-fledged into the holiday season. This past weekend I hit up the shopping malls and the decorations were out and the holiday music was playing through the speakers. I know there are tons of people who hate shopping malls during this time of year, but I personally love it! There’s nothing like getting in the holiday mood than a mall for me.
One of the first things I check out when I hit up the stores? The holiday collections! Now, for nails, the holidays means lots of pale pinks, reds, and glitter! Sally Hansen’s new Miracle Gel Winter in New York collection embodies all these colour choices.
This collection, as part of their Miracle Gel line, has five shades, all of which are different shades of pinks and reds. Miracle Gel is a two-step system and is an at-home gel manicure with no light needed. First you apply two or three coats of Miracle Gel colour to each nail (no base coat needed!), then apply one coat of the Miracle Gel Activator Top Coat to seal it in. The polish is cured by natural light so there’s no need for a UV or LED lamp. Because of the formula, you may notice that you get a longer wear on the polish before it starts to chip or peel. These also retail for a little more than a normal polish at C$11.95 each.
Anyways, back to the collection… I really like the colour choices in this collection since they are so festive and romantic. I always love pale baby pinks and there is a stunning one in here (Regal Rose, which has a subtle silver glitter). Terra Coppa is a festive glittery rose gold which would be perfect on a regular mani or accent nail, and Mauve-olous is a beautiful neutral colour in a creme formula that is perfect to transition from day to night. As for the reds, Can’t Beet Royalty is a beet-coloured creme, and Red-y Set, Run is the best shimmery red to rock on Christmas morning.
I really think Sally Hansen did a good job in colour choice for this collection. Since pale pinks and red really transcend any season you can totally rock these later on into next year as well.
Will you be picking up any colours from the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Winter in New York collection?
