An Ode to Seche Vite

Seche Vite ReviewPIN IT

Occasionally there are products that I just cannot get enough of; I know I’ve written about them before, but I want to write about them again, so I’m going to give them their very own ode…although not in the literal sense as I’m not sure I can put together a decent poem about a top coat. Still, what I can do is say that if you haven’t tried Seche Vite and you paint your nails, you need to get yourself a bottle as you will never look back.

When I first got my hands on Seche Vite, I didn’t take to it at all; I found it thick, gloopy and difficult to work with.  The thing I was doing wrong was applying too much – you only need a thin coat to leave your polish looking plump, shiny, and most importantly, free from any nicks or smudges, as Seche Vite does a great job at hiding these.  The main reason I always use Seche Vite as a topcoat is because it dries so, so quickly – after a manicure, I can start doing stuff again in less than 10 minutes.  The new bottle in the picture above is a press sample, whilst the battered bottle on the left is the bottle I bought myself a few months ago when I lost the previous one.  I always carry a bottle around with me for whenever I’m getting a manicure as I don’t see the point in using any other topcoat.  You can find Seche Vite here – link – for £9.

    I can’t do my manicure without my trusty Seche Vite and also don’t know how many people I have reccommended this to. People also ask whether they’re my own nails, why are my nails so glossy and chip free and if I’m using shellac nails. I tell them to get this £9 top coat to make their manicure life easier.

    Thanks for sharing this post. Will direct here hopefully they will be convinced lol
