        Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

        I'm a nail fanatic. I paint my nails once a week because I like to keep my nails perfect and change color often. I have tried just about every top coat, base coat and polish on the market and I can safely say I know what products are the best now. I LOVE the original Seche Vive top coat so I thought I would give the gel effects top coat a try... Nope, sick to the original Seche. This product chips WAY too fast. I gave it a solid 3 tries before I made the decision to return this product. It's not worth the extra money. Other than it only lasting roughly 2 days before it chips off, it dries incredibly fast (!), it does give a great shine/gel look (!) and I got plenty of compliments on my nails while using it (!). I just think the original product is so much better, its cheaper and last SO much longer! Try it if you must, (like I did) but I think you'll feel the same way.

              Really great looking...for like 12 hours

              By Aye Gee

              from chicago-ish

              Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

              I really wanted this to work. I tried it the first time and it chipped in less than 24 hours. I wore it to work and was opening boxes so I thought maybe it was that. So I gave it another shot when I wouldn't be doing much and it still chipped in less than 24 hours.

              I gave it 3 stars because I think it's possible that I need to smooth the ridges out of my nails maybe and because while it was on, I did get compliments about how great my nails looked.
