The struggle is real. At least it would be, if Sally Hansen hadn't released new Miracle Gel lacquers that deliver the high-shine and hardwearing qualities of a professional mani - except that you can do it yourself, at home, in your pyjamas, for a fraction of the cost. Win.
The colours in the limited edition Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Tribal Collection scream autumn (think a dusty pink, warm taupe, ochre and sky blue). But if you always struggle to choose the right colour for your skin tone, hear this: "Look at the hue - the warmth or coolness in your skin," guides Sally Hansen Global Colour Ambassador Madeline Poole. "If you have undertones of pink/red, nail colours with blues in them are more flattering for your complexion. If your undertone is more neutral, golden or olive, yellow-based shades - colours with more warmth - will look especially fantastic for you."
What's more, this week Sally Hansen has launched the Mani Match app so you can generate custom colour suggestions for your hands on demand - virtually turning your phone into an in-pocket manicurist. The innovative app analyses the pigments in your hands, then matches its polish-shade suggestions to the ones optimally flattering to your skin tone. Genius. Download it here.
