Seche Vite And Me, Our Bitter-Sweet Relationship


So after all the hype about ‘The World’s finest top coat‘ Seche Vite, I was ridiculously excited to try out my latest sample. After applying a base coat and colour, I applied a layer of this renowned fast-drying top coat, and left my nails to dry.

So Seche describe the product as;

Specially formulated to penetrate through nail lacquer to the base coat forming a single solid coating over the nail plate for a much more durable finish. Guaranteed not to yellow while leaving nails silky, stronger and resistant to chipping and peeling.

The fast-dry technology is fantastic, and personally I feel it is the best on the market today. Freshly-painted nails dry in uber-quick speed with this clever little bottle of ‘awesome nail’ elixir.

Plus, I certainly love the shine and gloss that this unique top coat adds. It transforms even the cheapest nail varnish into looking like a professional manicure, when applied to the nails.  The nails feel as sleek as false nails, but without the expense or damage to the nails. Fabarooney!

However, it’s not all good news I’m afraid. The Seche Vite nail does tend to peel quite easily, despite claiming to be, ‘chip and peel resistant’. After one day of application the tips of my nails look slightly chipped; and by day two a whole nail has lost it’s varnish because it has peeled off! Not only that; but once it has peeled off the nail appears to be slightly damaged. Sadly, this has occurred several times since.

I still continue to use Seche Vite though, because it guarantees the perfect nail for any occasion! However, if you want perfect nails for more than a couple of days; you will need to remove and reapply the varnish to be assured of no chips or peeling.

I give Seche Vite a heart breaking 6 out of 10. If I was just going on the initial awesomeness of the product it would be a definitive 10 out of 10, but sadly the chips and peeling considerably decreases the overall quality, and value for money of this product.
