Today I have another nail product to share with you all! The Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Top Coat is designed to go on thick and dry quick. This polish has a unique vinyl & gel formula that once applied on top of any regular nail colour creates multi-dimensional shine. Sally Hansen promises that we can transform our regular shine that we would achieve with a normal top coat into gel-like brilliance with no UV light. Well, Sally Hansen didn’t need to say a word more….I bought a bottle!!
I chose to use this top coat on top of my Lancome Vernis in Love Sugar Rose. The brush is wide and this made it easy to apply the top coat evenly over the nail colour. The product is very thick and needs only one coat to achieve the desired finish. The polish dries quickly and leaves a beautiful high gloss finish. However, I noticed that by day three the high gloss shine started to dull. This was quite disappointing but of course easily put right by applying another coat of top coat.
Whilst I think this top coat is a nice addition to my collection, I was somewhat disappointed with how many days it stayed looking fresh. I am a huge fan of Sally Hansen products particularly favouring the Diamond Flash Top Coat and can honestly say I prefer that one over this particular top coat. If you have a special occasion coming up then this would be perfect for a beautiful high gloss manicure for a day or two but if you are going on holiday or want your manicure to last over a week perhaps consider using a different top coat instead.
The Sally Hansen Gel Shine 3D Top Coat retails at £6.95. I bought mine from Boots.
I hope you find this little review helpful if you are thinking about buying.
Talk to you all soon x
