    Chips easily and turns my white French tip some eggshell color. This just peels right off from the cuticle area days after I polish! I should try the regular formula because this stuff don't cut it for me.

      Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

      I'm pretty low maintenance and always keep my nails clear. I use this on top of a ridge filler or clear base coat and it holds up for 10 days (minus the grow out). It dries super quick and leaves your nails a little plumped up for a gel-like manicure. I will never go back to a plain top coat. This stuff is great!

        Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

        Before using this product, my nails chipped in one day. With Seche Vive topcoat, I can get 7 or more days of beautifully painted nails! The shine is comparable to gel polish. Some people think I'm wearing gel and can't believe it's regular polish! Highly recommend!

              I've tried this top coat on three different manicures and it continually disappoints. Chips way to easily considering my manicure grows out before it chips with the original seche vite.
