Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat and Swatches

Hi friends! I hope you all had a nice weekend. I had a date day/night with hubby on Saturday. But now we have a cold front coming through, about a 50 degree temperature drop since yesterday, and I’m feeling it in every muscle, bone and joint. Because of that I haven’t got the nail art done that I wanted to, but decided to go ahead and show you all these polishes and post some nail art in a day or two. It’s definitely no fun doing nail art in the middle of a flare up. Mostly what I want to show you today is the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat. They also sent me 6 polishes from their Miracle Gel line so plenty of awesome swatches to check out. I’m really loving Sally Hansen right now and the new matte top coat is coming in at the perfect time!

Apollo You Anywhere is described as a coral creme with a fine gold shimmer. This color is gorgeous no matter what you do with it, but you do lose that very fine gold shimmer with the matte top coat. This is 2 coats, in glossy then in matte.

Out of this Pearl is described as a light frosty beige with a pearl finish. This is not a polish I would reach for very much on its own, but I do like it better with the matte top coat. For one it hides the brush strokes. I could see wearing this with some black stamping with a matte finish. My swatches show 3 thin coats.

Can’t Beat Royalty is described as a garnet red jelly polish. This is a semi sheer jelly and while its mostly opaque in 3 coats it’s still a bit patchy, but it’s more visible to the camera than it is to the naked eye. Shown with glossy top coat, then matte top coat.

I mentioned at the beginning of this post that this matte top coat came at the perfect time. I recently discovered that my favorite matte top coat is no longer being made as the company is closing down. That leaves me with a slew of matte top coats most of which aren’t matte enough for my taste. I like a very matte finish, not a demi matte etc. But the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat is everything I look for in a matte finish. 

Do you have favorites from these shades? Mauve-olous and Apollo you Anywhere are my top picks. Like I said I do have some nail art planned, but that will be in a different post later this week.

You can find Sally Hansen and the new Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat in most major drug stores nationwide, as well as Target and WalMart.

Until next time, stay polished!

  • I know I’m weird, but I’m not a fan of matte nails. But I adore every single shade of the SH Gel Polish that you’re showing. I will buy Mauve-ulous for sure, and probably a couple of others too. I’ve got some CVS Extrabucks, and that’s what I’ll be getting!

  • Tracey

    This is an awesome post! Love how you showed both glossy and matte, plus is looks a good matte too ♡

  • I prefer matte polish, and I need this top coat in my life – that would infuse life into so many too-shiny polishes in my stash.

  • I actually love how all of these look matte

  • I really like this matte top coat – it is not chalky looking!

  • Jen Sky Walker

    I am in love with Apollo You Anywhere, including the cute name! I’m generally more of a shiny fan when it comes to cream polishes by themselves but I often prefer matte when it comes to nail art.

  • Ehmkay Nails

    I love the cremes when they are matted. It produces such a rich color

  • BeautyJudy

    None of these shades really call to me or feel unique, but I may have to check out that matte top coat when I run out of matte!!!

  • claudia_csn

    Wow! Really pretty swatches. I normally don’t do reds but I love that red jelly and the vampy swatches! I want to wear both of those!

  • Whoa, I kinda love them all matte!

  • I forgot how much I love matte polish! I want to do a dotticure with the topper now!

  • This is such a great matte top coat. Your swatches look great.

  • I love these matted! You just don’t see it a lot so when I do I fall in love and want to try matting everything!

  • I love their miracle gel formula and am so excited about a matte top coat!
