Pros: best quality, dries fast, quantity
Cons: a little pricey

I am not much of a nail polish person. I find that it takes ages to apply and dry and then within a few hours I already have my first chip, which is really annoying. I bought the Nails Inc Gel Effect Polish and I was hoping that since it was on the pricy side that it would last longer than the China Glaze nail polish. I have to say that it did, but I still needed something to make it last even longer. So long story short, I sat down and did some research online to see which top coat has good reviews and I narrowed it down and eventually bought the Seche Vite Top Coat.

I found this top coat in one of the drugstores, but it cost £10 and I found a better deal online for £5, so of course I ordered it online. The Seche Vite Top Coat is a clear varnish that you use after your colour nail polish has dried. It helps to seal the varnish and protects it from chips and dents. The other advantage of this product is that it gives your nails a beautiful glossy finish and it dries pretty quickly, which I absolutely love because I hate having to wait around for my nails to dry. It already takes ages with the nail polish so I’m glad that the top coat doesn’t take that long.

The first time I used this top coat, my nail polish lasted 4 days without chipping, but the last few times I put it on my nails chipped in the first day already. I’m not sure if it’s just me or if it’s the fault of the top coat. I guess I’m quite clumsy and I do a lot of stuff with my hands. I just don’t understand why it seemed to protect my nails better at the beginning. Maybe I was subconsciously more careful with my nails, because I didn’t want to get any chips. Nevertheless, I’m quite happy with it.

Since I don’t have a base coat for my nails before applying nail varnish, I started using the top coat as a base coat as well. It helps to prevent my finger nails from staining. I didn’t realise it before but the first time I used nail varnish I didn’t apply any base coat and my fingernails were stained in a greenish colour from the nail polish. I guess  the Seche Vite does a pretty good job as a base coat, although I have to admit I am no expert at this and this is the only top coat/base coat I have ever used so I don’ have anything to compare it to. I think it works well for both these things.

Overall, this is a very good product. It helps to protect your nail varnish from chipping and it dries super fast. If you are an impatient person like me, you will definitely appreciate this product. As far as the price is concerned, I think it’s quite affordable and a little goes a long way. For me this product gets a big thumbs up and I highly recommend this product.

    Seche Vite Top Coat I love nail care and I love nail art. As a nail blogger I need that all the polishes dry fast because I need to take pictures and proceed with the nail polish color swatches ( series of pictures to show how the polishes look like). Read more
