Seche Vite Top Coat

I've been painting my nails for as long as I can remember and I'm always searching for a new top coat, nail strengthener and different brands of polishes, so when I first stepped onto the blogosphere and saw that Seche Vite was a holy grail top coat, I dipped my foot into the Seche pool.
Seche Vite top coat: £3.45/0.125oz

This is smaller than the bottle that many people have but personally I find that nail polishes gloop when I buy bigger bottles, especially top coats so I decided to purchase the smaller size to try the product and also avoid the gloopy stage.

My first impressions of this product weren't that high actually. I didn't notice that much glossyness after a days wear of Seche Vite but after trying this with another polish, my opinion has changed and I'm convinced it was the coloured varnish.

What I love about this product is how fast your nails dry, it doesn't leave a tacky layer on the nail where you have to sit for a good hour and wait to dry, after around 15 minutes they're dry and you can run your finger over your newly painted nails with ease. On my little travel bottle, the brush is a perfect nail and you can cover the nails in 2 strokes. But the main deal breaker to this top coat has to be how shiny my nails are and how long lasting the polish is - I teamed this with my newly purcashed Essie polishes (which I didn't rate because they chipped easily) but after using Seche Vite on top, the polish life has dramatically increased!

I can safely say I'm an Seche Vite convert!

Have you tried Seche Vite? What's your favourite top coat?


  1. This is super hyped up! I haven't tried it yet. I use OPI top coat :) x

  2. I've been wanting to try this as quite a few bloggers have recommended it! I have a Sally Hansen fast dry top cost but it makes the nail varnish peel off :s
    I'd buy the smaller bottle too xx

    1. I had a similar Sally Hansen one and it did the same. I really don't like her polishes!

  3. I want to own one of this. I have been looking for the perfect top coat since I love putting on nail polishes. I need them because I want my nail polishes to last long. I would definitely try this.

  4. my first impressions were being overwhelmed by the smell! it's so strong, but it's an amazing top coat! lovely review :)
