    Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

    I have been using Seche Vite for years and love it! I use this on a pedicure only so don't have issues with chipping and get a full 3 weeks of shine. I used the 20% coupon to give the Seche Vive a try. I put the Vite on one big toe and the Vive on the other. The next morning they felt and looked identical. I feel the extra $2 is for the bottle. I'm returning it and will continue using Seche Vite which is the best top coat ever! I always felt it made my diy pedi match my salon gel nails.

      The best top coat I've ever used. It dries quickly and makes my polish last much longer than normal top coat.

        Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

        Love this. My co-worker complimented my nails this morning, she couldn't believe they were not professionally done. Knock on wood I haven't had a problem with it. I read the mixed reviews and I was a little skeptical about buying this but I'm glad I caved in and got it because it's the best thing I've used thus far.

          I am a shellac fan and sometimes like to take a break. This top coat gives a great look as well as really nice durability. Would buy over and over!!

            I picked this up on accident thinking it was a different top coat. The finish is nice and mimics gel pretty well. The smell is strong and it chips easily which is why I probably won't buy this again.

                Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

                The first bottle of this product worked phenomenally. My manicure lasted well over a week (which for me is a long time). I purchased two new bottles, and I am convinced that they have changed the formula because this polish no longer works. I used it with the same exact polish I last time, and now I chip by day two.
