Autumn in New York

I’ve mentioned my fondness for Jessica nail products in previous posts, but I had to give a little mention to the new autumn collection, even though I’ve yet to try them! Each season, Jessica releases a new colour collection and there is always one I am looking forward to trying. This autumn, the ‘Autumn in New York’ collection (and if that doesn’t tempt you…) is one of the most colourful of the recent lines, and of course, it’s inspired by the season in the Big Apple. The new collection features six new shades;

Soho in Love – a pale pink with great nude undertones (this is the one on my shopping list!)

NY State of Mind – a blue-tones steel grey creme

Broadway Bound – a bright red almost coral with a slight shimmer

Meet at the Plaza – a wearable evergreen

Blue Harlem – an opulent navy blue

Gel Nails at home!

Miracle Gel 1

Like any beauty treatment, it was only a matter of time before it became possible to do a DIY 2-week manicure from your own home. And with the latest product to emerge from the Sally Hansen range, this could be the perfect way of getting longer lasting chip-free nails from your own beauty bag.

Sally Hansen are launching their ‘Miracle Gel’ polish this week, and it’s the first salon-quality two-week manicure available to buy at retail. A part polish, part gel-manicure, the new polish promises it will deliver up to 14 days of lasting colour and shine in just two easy steps:

– Apply 2 coats of Miracle Gel Colour Coat, followed by Miracle Gel Top Coat.

And ta-dah! There’s no need for LED or UV light as the top coat dries in natural light, and it can be removed with normal acetone and non-acetone nail polish remover. Meaning no soaking, filing (or for the bold ones, peeling!)

There will be 18 colours in the Sally Hansen range and they’ll be hitting shelves on September 12 – available to buy from pharmacies, grocery stores and department stores across Ireland.

Miracle Gel Colour costs €9.99 and the Top Coat costs €9.99. Duo packs will also be available for €14.99 from mid-September.
