Sally Hansen Launches Textured Miracle Gel Addition: Color Whirl


New for Fall 2018, Sally Hansen launches two texturizing “overcoats” adding to their Miracle Gel collection, Color Whirl.

The original Miracle Gel nail varnishes launched about four-years ago as Sally Hansen’s version of an at-home gel manicure (i.e., it does away with UV lights and the acetone pool-like removal process, and replaces it with two simple bottles of nail polish.)


The original two-step system is such that, one bottle serves as the base colour, and the other, the top coat, as the ‘gel.’

Compared to traditional nail varnishes, Miracle Gel colours have a thinner consistency and pigment nicely with the application of a second coat.

Miracle Gel polishes require no base coat.

The Miracle Gel topcoat is pretty identical to a regular topcoat with the exception that it dries ridiculously quick, and indeed, does last for more than a week chip-free.

The new Miracle Gel Color Whirl hues come in both a black, Steam Punk, and a pastel pink, Marble-ous.

Similar to OPI’s Shatter line, these limited edition polishes separate upon application, requiring only one application of polish, on top of any color creating a texturized effect to one’s manicure or pedicure.

So, how does Miracle Gel Color Whirl work?

  1. Apply two coats of any Miracle Gel colour.
  2. Starting at the cuticle, apply Miracle Gel Colour Whirl, with a slight amount of pressure allowing the brush to ‘fan out,’ on application to nail.
  3. Make sure to apply Miracle Gel Colour Whirl in quick, even strokes.
  4. Allow your look to fully dry, before sealing with one coat of Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel Top Coat.

The best thing about Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel line?

It comes off just like regular nail polish.

I would know — I own a dozen or so bottles, my favourites being Mad Women (#499) and Game of Chromes (#149).

These new Colour Whirl additions to the Miracle Gel family will be available online at as well as CVS and similar drug stores nation wide.
