Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat: Review + Results

Hey everyone! I hope you doing great and thanks for your visit!

As you all know, I'm a nail art and polish lover. I really love experimenting with new shades and brands because I always try to come up with attractive and beautiful nail looks.
But for any manicure to last longer, you need a good and effective top coat to seal and protect the design.  
I'm very particular when it comes to top coats and 'til now only 2-3 brands have impressed me. 

Earlier I had posted a review on one of my favorite top coats by AVON (read the review here).
Today I'm going to review my 2nd most favorite brand, in terms of top coats, Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat.

PRICE & QUANTITY: Rs. 675/- for 12.7 ml

AVAILABILITY: In stores of Parcos, New U (South Delhi Malls) and online on flipkart, amazon, etc

SHELF LIFE: Not mentioned

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: A quick drying top coat that resists smudging, chipping and fading. Keep manicures beautiful for up to 10 days! You want flawless color that lasts plus brilliant shine.

  • Advanced formula dries your manicure from top to bottom in just 60 seconds - no more smudges.
  • Fuses and seals all your manicure layers into one powerful protective shield that resists chipping, cracking, peeling and damaging moisture.
  • Exclusive micro-diamond & platinum formula features light-refractive diamond particles that add shine and strength.
  • DBP- and toluene-free.
  • Free of added formaldehyde.
  • Salon tested.

PACKAGING: It comes in a see through box which you can see the bottle. All the details are written on the box and when you open it, you get your polish. It's travel friendly and has sturdy packaging. The brush applicator is smooth and square shaped which gives proper coverage to your nails in one stroke.

  • Shake well before use
  • Make sure your base nail polish color is completely dry
  • Apply a thick coat of Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat
  • Wait for 60 seconds
  • Your nails are good to go

TEXTURE: The texture is smooth and your manicure lasts for up to 10 days.

CONSISTENCY: Just perfect! It doesn't feel that your nails are overloaded with the product.

APPLICATION: You just need one coat and you are good to go!

STAYING POWER: On my nails, it stayed well for 12 days without any problems. If you re-apply it after every 3 days, your manicure will last 'til the time you take it off.

DRYING DURATION: Only 60 seconds, trust me on that!

PRICE: Ouch! Yes, it is costly but when you'll experience the results yourself, you're going to love it for sure.

MY EXPERIENCE: I totally love this top coat! 
Basically, when I paint my nails with any nail polish, I hate sitting for hours and waiting for them to dry. That is the time this top coat is my savior. I apply one coat of it on my nails and within 60 seconds, I'm ready to go! After finishing my nail art designs, if I'm in a hurry, I apply this top coat and wow
I always advise to use a nice base and top coats as these 2 treatments help your manicure to last longer. But as for now, I'm in love with Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat.
