Hi Lovelies, Hope you are all having a lovely week! Last week I decided to bite the bullet and purchase the Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat after seeing so many people rave about it and even on of my favourite Bloggers - Dizzybrunette3 even wrote a poem about how much she loves it!
At a cost of £9 the Seche Vite Top Coat is a little more expensive than the top coats I have been using lately but I thought for the price it must be one of the best top coats EVER, But how wrong was I ?!
Acknowledged as the worlds finest top coat, it's formula 'claims' to allow it to penetrate through the nail lacquer to the base coat to form a single solid coating over the nail plate for a much more durable finish. Durable? Hell No, My nail polish lasted for one day and sometimes it didn't even make the same day without chipping and most of the times just peeling completely off the nail. I thought this might be because of the nail polish I was using underneath but I tried it with lots of other polishes and just the same thing happened.
The only advantages to this nail polish is that it dries your nails super quick and leaves them with a gorgeous shine that you just want to glare at all day, but then what's the point of all that if it's just going to peel off the next day or within the next couple of hours.
Since trying out this fail product I've read a few more reviews saying that people aren't using it properly, But how hard is it to use a top coat? I've been painting my nails since the age of 8, And yet even bog standard £3.99 Rimmel Top Coat can make my polish last for at least 3-4 days.
I really don't like giving a bad review on products but this is a complete fail for £9 and a complete waste of money. I now nickname it Seche Shitty rather than Seche Vite (Excuse the french) Ha.
I'm now on the lookout for a good fast drying top coat that will leave my nails chip/peel free for longer than one day, So if you lovelies have any recommendations then let me know.
Have you tried Seche Vite? Whats your favourite top coat?
