      Comments about Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat:

      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.

        Change in formula of polish

          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.

                This polish truly does impart a gel-like finish and I'm simply in love with it. The dry time is very fast as well. I highly recommend.

                    Polish chipped after two days and I don't feel I was that hard on my nails. I did try it first time on black which is a difficult color not to see chips. But after three days I had another chip and bad enough I removed all polish from that nail and started over. Very disappointed was hoping for at least a week without chips.

                        I purchased this because I love the regular seche vite quick dry. This was absolutely terrible. First day I used it it chipped the very next day on all my nails. 2nd time I tried two coats, still terrible I'll be returning it and getting the regular one!!
