My nail's new best friend

8:51 PM

Take a look at my nail polish below. Pretty good, right? Barely any chips, pretty shiny, all the things you want when you just paint your nails.

The only catch? At the time of the photo below, my nails had been painted for FOUR days. Four days of typing, cleaning, cooking, etc... It's hard for even me to believe it, as my nails usually look haggard within a day of painting them. But I'm going to tell you about the little gem that has helped my nail polish last for longer than two hours without chipping off!

A few months ago I received the Seche Vite Top Coat in a Topbox. I had heard Anna and Lily talk about it many times in their videos, so I was excited to give it a try.

I can honestly tell you that this top coat extends the life of my nail polish four or five days. I'm awful at keeping a nice manicure for very long, but this stuff really helps seal the polish in place. It's affordable, dries fast and gives a nice shine also. The only downside? It has a seriously strong chemical smell when you apply it, so keep that in mind.

I'm definitely going to be picking up another bottle of this top coat as soon as I run out. I'm looking forward to wearing nail polish much more!

  1. i love the effect of seche vite but the only thing is it is kinda impossible to get through an entire bottle, i think because it is quick dry it really thickens up. i'm a third of the way through my current bottle and already starting to notice. but i do love it!

  2. thanks for the tip...I will definitely try this!

  3. I liked Seche vite for my first bottle, but by the time I got through my second, I was done! It got goopy so fast, halfway through the bottle it started causing strings of plasticky dried topcoat everywhere... and it always always made my polish shrink! It's not as thick and glossy, but INM Out the Door topcoat is just as quick drying and at least as long lasting for me because it doesn't shrink. And it's not advertised as deadly in the state of California! =P
