I’ve never been one to fuss over my nails. Manicures? Pfft. This past year however, I slowly became more interested in wearing nailpolish of the do-it-yourself variety and my nailpolish collection has quickly grown in the last few months. At this point, I am probably changing my nail colour at least once a week!
One thing that is a must have for every nailpolish-obsessed out there is a good quality, fast-drying, long-lasting top coat. And this is DEFINITELY it: Seche Vite!
I’m sure most of us beauty bloggers have heard/seen/tried Seche Vite at one point. I had heard so much hype around how well this top coat performs in terms of fast-drying and providing longer, chip-resistant nailpolish wear. I searched everywhere for this whenever I went shopping and luckily found it one day at my local Superstore. I immediately grabbed it. However, I noticed the price — $11.99 Cdn. For a top coat? That seemed quite on the high-end for me. Hmm, whatever… I bit the bullet and dished out the money because I wanted to see if Seche Vite really lives up to its hype.
Yes. Yes it does.
I have had NO issues with chipping since using Seche Vite with any nail polish brand I use (Sally Hansen, Rimmel, Revlon, L’oreal, NYC, Essie). I believe this top coat is what allows my nailpolish to stay on for at least a whole week (if not more sometimes).
As far as its fast-dry claims? Yes! This makes my nailpolish dry to the touch only 2 minutes after I’ve applied it onto wet/semi-wet nails and I’d say fully dry after about 20 minutes at most. By my standards, I’d say that’s pretty good for time!
The only negative thing I have to say about Seche Vite is the smell. It has much more of a chemical smell than your typical nailpolish or nailpolish base/top coat does. It’s really not that bad but it may bother some — just something to be aware of if you decide to purchase.
I will definitely continue to use this as my top coat! So glad I found it.
I give Seche Vite: a STANDING OVATION
