|Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Top Coat|
$11.49 at CVS Greenwich (cheaper anywhere else)
I am blessed with nails like granite. A few years back, I gave into the gel nail craze out of the desire to have perfect, glossy, chip free nails. Unfortunately, they also reduced my natural nails to the thickness of rice paper. A failed experiment that took 6 mos. to reverse.
I spotted Sally Hansen 3D Top Coat on a CVS run. Normally, I use Nailtiques Formula #2 as my Holy Grail. (Though it should be sold with a hospital mask, the Formaldehyde fumes might be fatal.) This seemed a good idea; wouldn't it be nice to have that beautiful glossy shine, without having to bake my nails and then destroy them?
So here's the deal; they are not as glossy and I hoped, but it did add a thick layer of protection and 4 days later, I am chip free.
Review for Sally Hansen 3D Gel Shine Top Coat are decidedly mixed. Lots of grumbles about "bubbles" that I did not experience, though now my antennae is raised that this may be an issue as this product ages...I've never made it to the end of a bottle of clear polish, have you??? Really, they should just make mini bottles and charge half the price, donchathink???
So for now, I am cautiously recommending this product to try and I promise to amend this post with a P.S., if any problems bubble up...
