My first bottle of Seche Vite, I got it from Sally's during a promotion, you can read about it here.

I've been told a long long long time ago from a blog reader named Lisa that I can find Seche Vite at Toronto Barber & Beauty Supply (downtown toronto area). I was on my way to an event and decided to buy my second bottle. Anyway, the staff there was so much better than the uptown store. and it was $5.99 CAD


Review:
In my last Seche review, I mentioned reasons why I hated nail polishes before and I do have one more. It is the length time that is takes for nail polishes to fully dry. I have close to zero patience when it comes to allowing nail polishes to dry. This top coat, really changed my views on nail polishes entirely.

Seche Vite Top Coat


After applying color nail polishes, I apply the top coat generously. Within 10 seconds, my nail is already ready to be touched. After about 10 minutes, the nail polish is completely dried, even if i press into the nail polish, no prints are left behind.

The best thing is that, it's super shiny! Many people mistaken that my nails are gel because it's so shiny! It also protects my nail colour, I never EVER get a chip in colour!

It's true that you can get ridges if you don't apply generously, I only encountered that problem once, but ever since, I also apply generously and makes sure that I cover my entire nail.


I also noticed that half way through my bottle, my bottle becomes super icky. I bought a thinner for that and honestly it DOUBLED the life of my bottle. Now my second bottle, I poured half of it into my empty one and then mixed it with a nail polish thinner, it's like I made TWO bottles of seche vite. Equally effective.

Honestly, I'm never going back! I love LOVE this top coat so much!!

ps, NEVER mix nail polishes with your nail polish remover, they do not go together and it really ruins your nail polish. Alway mix with a proper nail polish thinner made specifically to de-icky your nail polishes.
