Best Nail Product

Happy Happy February! Goodness gracious, where has the time gone?!

Lately, I've been really into getting gel manicures. I can usually get a week and a half out of them, but if I get french gel, I can get 2 weeks because you can't tell the growth as compared to a gel mani with color. Gel manis are definitely an expense, but also something that saves me time and keeps me sane. It really drives me nuts when my nail get in bad shape (which is more often than not).

Well, I can't always get gel mani. Sometimes I'm just downright too busy to get to the salon. Sometimes the salon is booked and sometimes I just don't feel like shelling out the dinero. 

Enter Sally Hanesen's Mega Shine Top Coat. I would have never picked it up off the shelf at Target (also note that it's in a box). The only reason I tried it out is because a girl that I work with (who always has great nails) recommended it and now that I've tried it, it is the absolute best kept secret. 

Its's about $6ish and worth every penny. Just paint your nails with your usual color and then apply Mega Shine as your top coat. This not only makes your nails super shiny but it also seals and almost hardens them. When you apply Mega Shine, you'll notice it's a lot thicker than any nail polish. It almost has the consistency of hot glue.

This is what the description says...
Dries In Just 60 Seconds. Advanced formula dries your manicure from top to bottom in just 60 seconds. No more smudges. Fuses and seals all your manicure layers into one powerful protective shield that resists chipping, cracking, peeling and damaging moisture. Micro-diamonds add mirror shine and strength.
Apply 1 thick coat over wet or dry nail enamel. Dries to touch in 60 seconds. Apply a new coat as needed to "freshen" manicure and add extra shine and protection.
Have you tried Mega Shine? Have a fabulous day!
