Out of all the top coats I've tried throughout the years, Seche Vite remains my favorite. Every once in a while, I try to switch it up, and I'm disappointed (--if you have any other top coat suggestions for me, I'd love to hear them!). I love that this top coat is actually fast-drying and I don't have to worry about my nail polish after I use it. I also love how freaking shiny and glossy it is and it REMAINS shiny well after the first day of nail polish. Going top-coat-free sucks. You tell yourself that you're saving yourself time and trouble, but really your nail polish just ends up chipped and loses all of its luster the very next day. Which brings me to my second favorite thing about Seche Vite: it keeps even the cheapest nail polish chip-free for up to a week.
- Dries fast.
- Keeps nails super glossy.
- Prevents chipping. Extends nail polish life for real.
- Inexpensive if you buy it online (pack of 3 for under $7).
- Gets goopy near the end.
Where To Buy
You can get it from Amazon here for less than 7$ for a pack of 3 -- and I recommend buying a 3-pack for the reason above. You can also find it at Ulta or some drugstore, but it's just about $10 a pop.
I'm going to keep using and repurchasing this top coat. The only downside I've noticed (and have heard others mention) is that it gets goopy before you get to finish a full bottle. Given the pros, I can live with that. What's your favorite top coat? I'd love to hear it.
