About the Product

How is the 2X Volume Top Coat different?

The new Miracle Gel™ 2X Volume Top Coat provides more “build” and volume than the original. Miracle Gel is the next best thing to a salon gel manicure!

How is Miracle Gel™ different from a gel manicure or traditional nail polish?

Miracle Gel™ is the first-ever part-lacquer, part-gel manicure system that delivers up to 14 days of color and shine in just 2 easy steps. Miracle Gel™ delivers the high shine, glossy look of a salon gel manicure with no UV/LED lamp or base coat needed!

What kind of results can I expect?

The new, Miracle Gel™ formula delivers up to 14 days of color and shine in just 2 easy steps

Do you need a base coat?

No. Miracle GelTM Color and Top Coat were designed to be applied to the clean, naked nail. Using anything under Miracle Gelwill prevent it from performing as intended.

What is the estimated dry time? Is it different from regular nail polish?

Miracle Gel™ Color and Top Coat work together as a system and cure in natural light. We recommend allowing the formula to dry completely between each coat, as you would while applying a regular nail polish. As the 2X Volume Top Coat is plumper than the original, it will take a bit longer to dry. Wait 15 minutes before digging into your handbag for your keys!

Can you use the Miracle Gel™ Top Coat over any nail polish, or on its own as a clear coat?

No. The Miracle Gel™ Color and Top Coat formulas were developed to be used together as a system.

Can you create a French Manicure or use multiple shades for nail art with Miracle Gel™?

Yes! Miracle Gel™ can be used to create unique nail art and French Manicure looks. Apply like regular nail polish and finish with the Miracle Gel™ Top Coat. In order to avoid longer dry times, be sure to use thin coats.

Can you use Sally Hansen Dry & Go Drops on top or will it negatively impact the gel polish?

No, we do not recommend using Sally Hansen Dry & Go Drops with Miracle Gel™ Color & Top Coat.

Removal

How do you remove Miracle Gel™?

Miracle Gel™ removes easily and quickly with either acetone-based or acetone-free nail polish remover- no soaking, wrapping, scraping or filing necessary.

Technology

How does Miracle Gel™ work?

The Miracle Gel™ Color and Top Coat work together as a system to create a durable manicure with high gloss shine. Formula ingredients are key. The advanced Color and Top Coat formulas both contain an oligomer; the Top Coat also includes a photoinitiator. The photoinitiator activates a bond between the Color and Top Coat, thus curing the formula in natural light without the need of an LED/UV lamp. The formula continues to cure over time, increasing durability of the manicure.
