Sticking with Seche Vite

By Llysa

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

Noticed no difference in this "gel" top coat vs. Seche Vite. Advertised as giving the gel effect with thicker finish and amazing shine but noticed neither of these things. Will continue to stick with Vite for the lower cost.

Peeled up off of nails in sheets

Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

This is the worst top coat I've ever used, it peeled up off of my nail polish in large pieces after 2 days. Did not adhere to Essie or Sally Hansen nail polish.

Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

I love this top coat. I polish my nails every week... I used the original seche vive top coat for yrs. Just switched to this. Find it to last better, has a glossier finish. Takes home mani/ pedi to a new level. Tip...I wipe my nails 1st w alcohol wipes to remove all traces of anything. Then color and 1 good coat of top coat. Get lots of compliments on the finish. And it stays glossy for days.

    Not a good top coat

    Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

    This stuff does not give a gel effect. It does dry fast. But it is not plump or thick and it does not stay shiny. Within 24 hours the shine has dulled and scratched up. You need another coat daily. It's not worth the price.
