I have been sleeping on yet another product that i didn’t know existed! I went into Sally’s Beauty to get me some more of my regular Seche Vite nail polish top coat and saw this Seche Vive Gel Effect Top Coat.
I most definitely had to pick it up and take it home with me to try!
I love that it doesn’t need an UV light to make it set. After I choose which nail polish I want to use on my nails. I let my nails dry for a couple of minutes before I put this baby on and it plumps up my nails and makes them look like I just came from the salon. It makes my nails stronger and a little bit thicker than normal.
You don’t have to use this on gel nail polish. You can use it on any nail polish that you have. That’s another plus! I think I only have a handful of gel nail polish.
I haven’t tested out how long this lasts to see when chipping starts to occur. I know that it lasts at least a week. I don’t think I’ve ever had on the same color nail polish for more than a week, only because I like to switch up my nail colors and styles.
My nail polish routine is changing up my nail polish on Sunday nights to a work approved nail color and then when I get off work on Fridays, I switch it up to weekend nail polish colors. See, in my uniform, I can only wear neutral and conservative colors. How boring! Then on the weekends, I can do whatever I feel and change them up!
Now, I rarely wear gel nail polish and I’ve heard from others that it takes some elbow grease to take it off, but with this top coat, you will think that it’s just like taking off any other type of nail polish.
This is definitely my new go-to top coat. If you haven’t tried this bad boy out, then you should head over to your nearest Sally’s Beauty or Ulta Beauty store and snag you up a bottle!
It is a little more expensive than the Seche Vite top coat, but I don’t mind paying the extra couple of dollars.
I’m really in love and impressed with this top coat.
