After years of manicuring my hands with expensive polish and having it chip off after two days, I decided to just spend money on Dollar Store polish and paint them regularly. Then I learned that it was all about the top coat.
We ladies have spent so much money and energy and time and everything else on searching for the best top coat for our precious nails.
I’m here to save you that struggle. You’re welcome.
This thing is the most amazing nail polish I’ve ever used in my life. I literally wear $1 polish most of the time (which is how I have so many colors), and I get a manicure that lasts throughout the week.
I typically give myself a full manicure every other week or every two weeks, but with Seche Vite, it looks like I’ve got a professional manicure.
The only con…
A lot of reviews talk about “shrinking” polish, so I wanted to address that.
When I still have a wet coat of color polish, I apply a coat of Seche Vite to the ENTIRE nail. A lot of people don’t coat the entire nail, but they don’t realize it until they use this polish because it’s thicker and breaks apart the color polish to ensure a thick, shiny coat.
Even with my manicure this week (as seen above), there are obvious spots where I didn’t coat the side of my nail with the polish, but for the most part, it looks like a professional did my nails.
In case you were wondering, I clean my nails with 100% Acetone ($2.50 at Walmart) and an e.l.f. concealer brush ($1 at Walmart or Target). Just dip the brush into acetone and wipe the excess polish from your skin and nails to create a clean finish. I typically do this before I apply Seche Vite.
You can grab a bottle for less than $5 on Amazon. You can buy it at Sally and CVS for a lot more.

Seche Vite is my go to topcoat!
My best friend always uses this top coat. I have yet to see it in stores. I’ll have to buy it off of amazon because she swears by it too! What is the color polish?
It’s Hazard by Sinful Colors! I always go to Amazon for Seche Vite; so much cheaper!
Such a pretty color! I’ll have to get it!
