Roughly 10 Percent of the Population Owns *This* Nail Polish Hue
It’s always fun to discover fierce new nail art designs and keep up with all the latest collabs (have you seen the adorbs the China Glaze x My Little Pony collection?), but sometimes, a girl needs a tried and true standby: one neutral color that’s perfect for summer. For Pinterest fans, that’s Essie’s Topless and Barefoot, but when it comes to the rest of the population, it appears to be a drugstore brand you can nab just about anywhere.
So popular, in fact, is this polish, that InStyle reports that more than 32 MILLION bottles have been sold since it first launched back in 2014. With the US Census Bureau reporting a current population of approximately 325,302,265 (and changing all the time) presently in the US, that’s the rough equivalent of 10 percent of our nation’s population, for those doing the math. The polish in question? (Drum roll, please!) Sally Hansen’s Terra-Coppa ($8).
The Miracle Gel is part of Sally Hansen’s popular polish and Top Coat 101 ($7) two-step system, and promises to last up to 14 days without any chipping. The warm bronze shade comes with a nice dose of shimmer to give your manicure plenty of pizzazz while remaining neutral enough to be paired with any look throughout any season.

Ready to learn how to get the perfect #SallyHansen #MiracleGel right at home?! I filmed it from my point of view, so you can see how easy it is. First, file your nails and buff them to remove any feathering on the tips. Next, clean your nails with polish remover. Now it's time to paint! Apply your first thin layer of #TerraCoppa using few brush strokes. Make sure to cap the free edge to avoid chipping and apply your second coat. Finish the look with a coat of Miracle Gel Top Coat to life-proof your mani! Hey, @mimiandchichi, why not give it a try? It's easy! @Sally_Hansen #nails #manicure #Sponsored
