Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure line is intended as an all-in-one option with no need for added base or top coat, though you can certainly use them if you like. The brush is the typical wide one with rounded end that the brand uses - it is much wider than most, but since the end is generally well cut and rounded it works well for me. Here is what the brand had to say:

Complete Salon Manicure™ boasts 7 benefits in 1 bottle, plus a flawless finish brush for easy application and salon-quality results.
Featuring a base coat, growth treatment, runway-inspired color, top coat, gel-shine finish, chip-resistance, and a strengthener with keratin complex for up to 64% stronger nails, this all-in-one formula delivers up to 10 days of chip-resistant wear. It’s everything you need to achieve a professional nail look at home!
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 381 Gilty Party is a classy metallic foil with a twist! It has a dash of red microflakes along with taupe microflakes, making a two-coat foil finish. Great dry time and smooth formula.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 451 Commander in Chic is a brown taupe creme, shiny and opaque in only two coats, which is amazing for a light-colored creme. Nice quick-drying formula.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is a no-light polish-gel hybrid intended for long wear. The system includes both a color polish and a top coat that fuse for longevity. This polish also comes with the brand's typical wide, rounded brush. Here is what the brand had to say:

The #1 no light gel system!* In just two easy steps get up to 14 days of color and shine. More chip-resistant than regular nail polish!
Over 70 shades that wow!
Step 1: Color
Step 2: Top Coat
Easily removes with regular nail polish remover
I tried the system together and also the top coat over regular polish. I would say that the Miracle Gel Top Coat has a formula that is almost identical to regular soak off gel - quite thick, easily self leveling, and a bit prone to bubbling if you shake the bottle, but the bubbles settle down on the nail. It also dries amazingly smooth and shiny - pretty much just like gel, even when used with a regular polish! It is not a quick-drying formula on its own, but not super slow either. I also tried it with a lamp, even though you don't need one technically, and it might have sped up the drying a tiny bit. The Miracle Gel Nail Color is quite similar in formula to a regular polish and has nice coverage, though the dry time is quite slow compared to the Complete Salon Manicure or Color Therapy lines. I definitely recommend giving this system plenty of time to dry before digging into that bag of chips! However, it did seem to wear well on me. 

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel 799 Greyfitti is a pastel blue gray that covers beautifully in two thin coats with no streaking, which is wonderful for a pastel. Let it have plenty of dry time for best results.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel 839 Stilettos and Studs is a gunmetal gray jelly shimmer. This one was a bit more sheer and I used three coat for full coverage. It really does have the look of a gel shimmer polish - quite squishy and rich. Allow plenty of dry time for best results.
