Monday Mani: The Best Top Coat.... Seche Vite

Seche VITE acknowledged as the world's finest top coat. Its formula allows it to penetrate through the nail lacquer to the base coat forming a single solid coating over the nail plate for a much more durable finish which is guaranteed not to yellow. Seche VITE is unmatched as a top coat. Your nails will feel silky, be stronger, and will absolutely not chip. Seche VITE creates the highest gloss and is longer lasting then any product on the market today. Apply thickly, get a nice bead on the end of the brush, then set softly down on the first nail painted and watch how Seche VITE flows over the wet nail polish without dragging or streaking the underlying manicure.

Those were the promises by Seche VITE. To test if they're as good as what they claimed, I am comparing it with another top coat which I previously love. For the manicure, I use the OPI Liquid Sand nail polish because it has soft texture to bring out the comparison.

As you can see, in terms of lustre and gloss, the Seche VITE shines out more. Meanwhile, brand X just sink into the texture because the coating is really thin.

After one week, this is what happen:

The Seche VITE remains glossy. There's a bit of wash off at the tips because of I did a lot of work. And brand X has some chipping off at the tip and also near the cuticles.

1. Fast drying. It dries the manicure in 10 seconds. No kidding. You can test this once you get it. It makes your nail polish solid hard in just seconds.
2. Doesn't chip off easily. Definitely recommended for rough hands like mine.
3. Super glossy.

1. Expensive. Retail price cost about RM60. But if you purchase from the Beauty Expo, it's only RM25!
2. May contain ingredients that are not suitable for pregnant ladies and children.

In conclusion, I really like the Seche VITE and will definitely stick to it. Go and try it, you'll fall in love in just 10 seconds.

I hate the fact that this thing dries up so quickly! This used to be my favorite top coat, I even bought the restore thinner. But it is really a paint in the ass when I need to drip the thinner thing every single time I paint my nails when it starts getting goopy half way through. I used up three bottles of this and had finally decided to search for other alternatives. Currently, I'm loving Butter London's Hardware Top Coat. It's exactly like Seche Vite minus the goopy issue, but for twice the price. For convenience sake, I think the extra bucks are well spent :P
