THE GLOSS EFFECT. Hankering after the high-shine, glossy look of a gel manicure but not the fuss over maintenance and the huge price tag? Sally Hansen’s new Miracle Gel lacquers is what you want. Available in 19 shades, the Miracle Gel Color and Top Coat promises strong nails with durable colour and shine that will last for up to 14 days. Start with clean, dry nails and apply two coats of Miracle Gel Color (no base coat needed). Follow that with one coat of Top Coat and simply let the natural light work its magic. Retailing for S$16.90 at Watsons, Guardian, BHG and John Little. The Duo Packs retails at a promotional price of S$16.90 each, while stocks last.
