Freshly Painted Purple Paws: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Boho-a-Go-Go

Published in: Daily Beauty

My nails did NOT wake up like ‘dis. I went to bed last night with two fresh coats of Essie Bell-Bottom Blues on my fingers (along with a new base and top coat combo I’m trying, Sally Hansen Green Tea + Bamboo Strength and OPI Top Coat), but apparently I didn’t give the whole thing enough time to cook properly, because I woke up this morning to a mess of smudges and scratches.


Honestly, I should’ve known better. It was kind of dark in the living room where I did my mani, and I was bone tired, too. I was ALSO watching the season finale of Mr. Robot, so I wasn’t paying much attention to my nails (are you watching that show, BTW?).

Anywho! First thing this morning I took the whole mess off, then later today at my desk I busted out this here deep purple Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Boho-a-Go-Go.

So, these Miracle Gels, if you haven’t tried them already, are fan-friggin-tastic. The gel formula cures using the ambient light around you, so you paint your paws with a couple coats of whatever Miracle Gel color you’re in the mood for, then pop a layer of Miracle Gel Top Coat on top, then wait about 15 minutes for the whole thing to dry. They last on my claws from 8-10 days, which is nothing short of miraculous (hahaha) for my paws (I put them through a lot).

Boho-a-Go-Go is such a fall-y color, isn’t it? I like it so far, but I have no idea what’s going on with the pinky situation in the pic below. It doesn’t look nearly as bumpy or crazy in real life. Hmm…


I think it’s just a trick of light.

    Finally busted out the moody fall polish this weekend! I went with the classic oxblood Revlon Vixen. See you April, pinks & corals!

  2. Agata says:

    I wore In the Lobby from Essie 2 weeks ago in anticipation of the fall but on Sunday I painted my nails bright orangey red (Essie Camera Action) as the last shout out to the summer season!

    You flashed that violet camera a lot but didn’t say a WORD about it! 😮

    I never used the gels bc I thought they all required that UV light thingy.

    Oh, BTW I brought my UD Anniversary Palette out to play today (I do my makeup at work) and it travels perfectly in my Vice 3 bag! <3 <3

    What do you think of your instant camera? I’ve had it on my wishlist for a while…

  6. Tatiana says:

    How hard are these to remove? Is like a traditional gel/lamp combo where you have to soak your nails?
    One possibility for the pinky thing you have going on is a reflection or shadows of sunlight through leafy trees outside your window. Maybe?

  7. Katie says:

    I love that color! I have a few of the Miracle Gel polishes and they’re great. I love the wear time and how shiny they look.

    To those who think these require a lamp, they dont! They just need the top coat that goes along with it and that’s it! They are also as easy to take off as regular polish.

    I recently tried this brand of polish for the first time and was amazed. I never paint my fingernails because you can bet your life that I’ll have a chip within the first 3 hours, no joke! But I decided to try one of these after seeing another beauty blogger (can’t remember who) raving about them. I was seriously amazed!!! They apply really smooth and every colour is so pigmented. I ended up having to remove this polish not because of any chips, but because my nails had grown out. I also just came across fast drying drops from Essence that I want to try with this so I’m not sitting for half an hour waiting for my nails to dry.

  9. Kim says:

    I’m glad you posted this because I’m always curious about the wear time of the drugstore gel polishes, especially those that cure without the UV lamp. 8 – 10 days is REALLY good!

    Yes, I’ve watched Mr. Robot’s first season. Do you like it? I think it’s pretty good but am very bothered by the similarity to Fight Club (one of my all time faves). The Hubs was laughing at me because I was all like “see? they’re even using the Pixie’s Where is My Mind??!! Total ripoff!!!”. Aside from the lack of originality, I think the acting is good and it’s been pretty enjoyable to watch. 🙂

  10. I have been meaning to try these, but have been putting it off because I couldn’t decide on a color. They really last that long?

    I’ve been loving those polishes ever since you recommended Rum Punch earlier this summer! I had to tear myself away from the display last week, must finish what I have! 😉 I’m wearing the classic red right now, can’t remember the name of it.

    The only thing I’ve found is that the curing top coat isn’t as glossy as I prefer (although it does dry quickly), so the day after I’ll usually do a coat of Essie’s quick-dry topcoat to shine them up. It’s really a fantastic formula, and none of the nail destruction you have to go through to do a gel mani at the salon! Plus, if I let my nails go longer than a week without trimming I go crazy, so I don’t really need my mani to last longer than that.

    This is great timing – I was just perusing the Miracle Gel polishes last weekend! I love the Complete Salon Manicure polishes, and was wondering what the staying power was like for the Miracle Gels – I am also pretty rough on my poor paws! Might have to go back to the store & pick up a shade or two 😀
