When I first began blogging I'd heard alot of people talking about Seche Vite and also hearing this was the pro's holy grail for tip top nail's. Known to keep nail's super shiny, and keeping polish un-chipped and dry quickly. When I was on one of my 'beauty supply store' trips (which really isn't good for bank balances) I spotted this for £4.99 and decided to finally try it out.
So what do they say?
"Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat is acknowledged as the world's finest top coat
Absolutely will not chip and creates the highest gloss of any product on the market today"
I decided to put their 'Absolutely will not chip' claim to the test. The other week I blogged my 'nail's of the day' with Topshop's 'Nice n Neutral' and used the Seche Vite top coat, I first apply a thin layer at the tip's of the nail's and over the edge of them, let it dry (which with this takes the shortest amount of time, so short that I could paint one hand and be ready to go back to them after doing the next) and then go back and apply a layer over the entire nail. I can see why this is the professionals holy grail this stuff is certainly amazing.
The bottom photo show's how well the stuff work's, my thumb was still perfect and un-chipped like the other finger's and slightly chipped on my small finger. The only thing that show's it's been on a while is the growth of my nail's at the bottom which is obviously normal, plus my nail's grow really fast. I'm still impressed my nail's didn't have a single chip, at the end's I always get chipping quickly when using other top coat's, not a single chip after nearly 2 week's?!
I also had super shiny nail's until I took it off too which i loved, usually nail's go a little 'dull' looking after a while.
I'm one of those girl's that tend to change their nail colour every other day or weekly as I change my mind but for this I wanted to see how long it really would work and if I really could have un-chipped nail's.
