I remember hearing so much about Seche Vite but totally not believing the hype, I only ended up using it because one of my readers (and twitter friends) sent me the rest of hers because she didn’t like it. Given that rave review I was expecting very little but it is quite seriously the best top coat ever! Having heard bad things about the ingredients I stopped using it when I was trying to get pregnant (with Milo) and didn’t repurchase again until very recently (almost 2 years later) but it’s still the best. I’ve tried other gel-like formulas and for a while I couldn’t get enough of the Sally Hansen Mega Shine but the issue I always had was when I applied it too thickly it bubbled, totally ruining the look of my nails. On top of that nothing dries as fast as SV.. nothing! I read that it penetrates the layers of nail polish and dries them up too which always sounded a little far fetched until my recent rainbow nails experiment. All those layers and I didn’t wait for them to totally dry in between (aint nobody got time for that) I was expecting major smushing but once the gloss was dry they were hard as nails.. so to speak. In fact 8 days later they’re still intact with only one teeny chip.. amazing!
Anyway, I could talk all day about the shiniest, fasted drying, longest lasting top coat there is but I don’t need to, just try it! One note: Don’t buy from a salon, you can get much better deals online, I got mine for only £5.50 here
