Sally Hansen Miracle Cure - First Impression

Today I'm going to be doing something a little bit different. I recently purchased Sally Hansen Miracle Cure Strengthener for Severe Problem Nails and thought I'd do a first impressions on it.

The back of the bottle says to "Shake gently. Apply 1 thin coat to bare nails every other day. Use alone or as a base coat." I've only been using it for about five days, and though that means I've only applied it three times, I am pretty impressed so far.

Since my nails are so thin from years and years of poor treatment and nail biting, I have tried a lot of  nail strengtheners. The "holy grail" appears to be OPI Nail Envy, but to be honest, that has not worked for me. I've also tried Nail Tek Intense Therapy and Seche Vite Rebuild and Restore, all to no avail.  I really didn't have a whole lot of hope for this, but I figured I'd give it a go.

Now, I don't know if anyone else has this problem with nail strengtheners, but they always always end up peeling off of my nails. I don't know why, but I feel like if they're just peeling off, they're not really doing their job.

This product does not peel. Every day that I've applied it, the layer from two days before is still there, perfectly in tact. It also actually makes my nails feel stronger and dries ridiculously fast. I honestly feel like it will be an awesome base coat as well since it adheres so well onto the nail.

Anyway, that's my first impression of Sally Hansen Miracle Cure. Leave a comment if you're interested in a proper review once I've used it a bit longer. Hopefully, I'll be posting some nail art soon (and catching up on the Seven Deadly Sins challenge) but I need finals to end first.

Hope you are having a lovely day :)


  1. I haven't tried this one. I've used Duri Rejuvacote and liked it, and now I'm using Nail Envy, but I don't like it as much. I have found that using jojoba oil has cut down a LOT on my peeling (as well as hangnails). I still get some peeling, though, but not nearly as bad. I actually have real nails now! I'd love to hear an update on this product after some usage. Good luck!

    1. If this doesn't work out, I will definitely try Duri Rejuvacote. Thanks for the feedback :)
