Sally Hansen Miracle Gel – Game of Chromes

Sally Hansen - Game of Chromes Bottle (The Daily Varnish)My friends! Surprise! I’m back & for very good reason. Tonight is the premiere of Game of Thrones Season Six. Tell me you’re as excited as I am? Today, I’ve been totally nerding out – I’ve listened to Game of Thrones podcasts, I’m currently rewatching the season 5 finale, and I’m feeling major regret for not having met my goal of finishing A Storm of Swords by the beginning of this season. That’s okay though, because I’m so excited to be editing photos and posting again. More on that later 🙂

Sally Hansen was kind enough to send us some polishes for review months ago, and I told Alli I absolutely had to have this one. She’s not into Game of Thrones, so it was an easy battle to win.

Game of Chromes combines everything I love in golden metallic polishes. It has a foil-y look that reminds me of ORLY Rage. The color is a really classy champagne gold. It’s super easy to apply, I used 2 quick coats + top coat and I was out the door with gorgeous nails.

I love that this polish is multi-season appropriate and it is totally going to get a ton of wear time this spring and summer (and fall).  A lot of times, even when I love a polish, I wear it, review it, and forget about it – it’s terrible – but I’ve already worn this one 3-4 times on my fingers and toes and I just adore it.

If you’re in the market for this pretty polish you can grab it at Target for 7.59, Ulta for 9.99 (currently BOGO 50% off), it’s also available at your usual drugstore haunts. In the drugstore realm, I pretty much exclusively choose Walgreens – the two I go to have the BEST beauty advisers, I love them. Pro tip: make friends with your local Walgreens beauty adviser, seriously.

I can’t end this post without saying how much I’ve missed you guys. I appreciate the comments asking about us and I can assure you that we are both thriving – sometimes life gets busy. With my school year coming to an end, I can’t promise that I’ll post regularly, but come summer break (aka teacher rehab), I’ll be back at it in full force. If you’re ever in need for a Katie & Alli fix we are all over social media.

I also have been thinking about doing a post on things I’m loving this month. Would you guys like that? Let me know!

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Rhapsody Red

Christmas is one week from today. ONE WEEK. This year I am surprisingly on top of Christmas related things. I’ve already finished my shopping. I only have a few presents left to wrap. I’ve finished all my holiday baking. I’ve even planned out Christmas Eve dinner. Due to this I’m feeling a bit more festive […] Continue reading →

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Spice Age

I love brown nail polish. It’s an under appreciated nail color. And if this polish doesn’t convince you that brown polish is a must in every collection then well….I don’t know what to say. Spice age is a dark brown packed with golden shimmer. And, the formula is fantastic. I used just two coats in […] Continue reading →

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Blacky-O

There’s just something great about black nails. They’re easy. They match every outfit. They take zero thought. That’s exactly the kind of manicure I was looking for last week. As always, I was in charge of the turkey for Thanksgiving. I did an herb roasted turkey this year that turned out wonderfully. But to say […] Continue reading →

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Electra-Cute

It’s not exactly a secret that I love orange nail polish. I’ve been rocking essie Color Binge constantly this fall. That is until Sally Hansen Electra-Cute came into my life. Electra-Cute is what I generally call Halloween orange (I did use it in a Halloween manicure…). But, it’s also the perfect fall orange. Electra-Cute is a […] Continue reading →

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel – Buffalo Nickel

This is kind of weird, but this is the first Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish I’ve tried. See? Weird. Anyway, I am absolutely obsessed with Buffalo Nickel. The color shifts ever so slightly from silver to something that I can only really describe as nickel. It’s amazing. I took pictures in both morning and afternoon […] Continue reading →

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Mintage

Shockingly, my second pick from the new Boho Chic Miracle Gel collection might be my favorite. I was completely in love with Beatnik last week. But now I can’t stop wearing Mintage! Sally Hansen describes Mintage as a medium toned mint. It’s a creme formula with a gorgeous super shiny finish. What I love about […] Continue reading →
