It was a holy day when I was in Winners looking for a new topcoat for nail-polish. Seche vite first caught my attention because it was in a box whereas all the other nail polishes were just freestanding. It was $7 and I was going to put it back (I know it’s a good price but there were other topcoats that cost less and I’m a money saver…) but then I realized that seche vite means dry quick in French. Since I never had a quick dry topcoat I decided to read what it said on the box. Here is a picture of what it said: I am easily convinced to buy anything, really, if I watch any infomercial I will want to buy the object no matter how dumb or unuseful it may be. So this description instantly sold the product to me. And I must say that description has not let me down! This is a great product but as always there are some cons, here is a comparison:
– It doesn’t smudge the layer of nail polish like some topcoats do – Your nail polish lasts 2-3 days longer
– Less chipping
– Makes your nail polish look like gel nail polish because of the thick layer of shine. Many people ask me if I’m wearing gel nail polish when I use this top coat.
Con’s: – Horrible stench, as soon as you open the nail polish you will smell are really horrible and strong scent. Since it is chemicals and probably a bit toxic, I suggesting applying this in an open area, or outside, not inside your bedroom.
-It may shrink some nail polish. On some occasions I noticed that after applying this topcoat my nail polish shrank a bit and you could see the tips of your fingernails. But the shrinkage is so minimal that you won’t notice unless you try finding it.
In conclusion, this product always gets me many compliments and has a lot more pros than cons. The one thing I didn’t mention yet is whether it really is quick drying. I didn’t comment on it because I don’t think there is a sure way to tell but I do think that it helped the polish dry a bit quicker.
