Worst Base Coat I've Used

    Comments about Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat:

    I love their topcoat, but any time I use this base my polish starts falling off in less than half a day. All the polish on a nail will fall off in one piece. What?!

    Any that make it a more than the first 4 hrs will start chipping off. Sloughing off really, because big chunks of it come off at a time.

    Skip it. It makes your whole process worthless!

    Best Top Coat Ever!

      Comments about Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat:

      I bought Seche Vite top coat based on other reviews. I had the best results ever, it has been 5 days and not one chip. I apply a base coat, 2 color coats and then this top coat. I let my nails dry 10 minutes in between each coat. I think that is the trick, any less time and you are just not giving enough time to dry in between coats.

      Makes my nail polish chip faster

      By Gina

      Pros

        • Chips Easily

        • Any Time
        • Base Coat

        Comments about Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat:

        After buying this product to work in conjunction with the top coat, I thought it would be a great combo. Any time I use the base coat, I find that my nails chip a lot faster. The polish completely lifts off around the corners and you can peel the entire coat off and ends up damaging my nails.

        Yellow nails persist :-(

          Comments about Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat:

          I bought this base coat because I had heard such good things about the Seche brand, and I was looking for a base coat that would prevent my nails from yellowing - as this polish promises to do.

          Unfortunately the polish fails spectacularly to deliver on that promise. I have used this base coat for more that two months, and my poor nails are as yellow as ever.

          Other than that, it's a good base coat; I have no issues with the formula or application. (It's actually quite lovely to use, and lasts much longer than I had anticipated.) I'll definitely use up the bottle, but in terms of delivering on packaging promises regarding yellowing, the Seche base coat leaves a LOT to be desired.

          Bubbles

            Comments about Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat:

            I bought this at the same time I bought the top coat, because I heard great things. On the very first use, I had one nail that bubbled terribly even when I started over and reapplied. Bubbling is odd with a base coat, since adding on all of the extra polishes is usually what causes bubbles. On the second use, I had three nails bubble. I did buy the restore thinner but am reluctant to use it on such a new bottle and unsure how it will limit bubbles.

            On the nails that did not bubble, the product works well, thus three stars.

            The top coat on the other hand is a FIVE star product. Whether using cheap color or expensive color, the top coat seals it in without chipping for more than a week. I will be searching for a new base coat but I have my HG top coat.

              Comments about Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat:

              I'm not sure why a lot of people seem to be confusing Seche Clear with Seche Vite. Seche Clear is a BASE coat, Seche Vite is a TOP coat that seals everything in . They are both excellent products and I seem to get an extra couple days out of a mani when I use them together putting the Seche Vite on the final coat of polish while it's still wet.

                      Ladies, the top coat is what makes your mani/pedi beautifully perfect. I have been painting my nails for years and the many times I ruined my nails because of smudges (even after drying forever) I came to realization that its all about a quality top coat. Spend the extract $3-$4 dollars and I guarantee you won't be disappointed. This product makes your nails look salon perfect! Also, it saved me a lot of money on trips to the salon, now I do a majority of my own mani/pedis.
