Poshé Super Fast Drying Top Coat vs Seche Vite Top Coat Challenge

Poshé Super Fast Drying Top Coat

#Poshe Super Fast Drying top coat, fast drying top coat, nails

While I was at Sally Beauty Supply to grab me some toner for my hair since it decided to start getting brassy and I can’t be having that ish. I also saw that they had the Poshé super fast drying nail top coat that I keep hearing and reading raves on, so I picked it up as well.

Since it was Sunday and I had to switch up my nail color for work. I tried the Poshé out to see if the raves were correct.

Other beauty bloggers and nail bloggers have raved about Poshé and Seche Vite top coats and how the compare to each other. I’ve already bought and reviewed Seche Vite’s top coat. You can read about my Seche Vite review here.

Onto my Poshé top coat review.

I painted my nails as usually with two coats of Zoya Spencer and then used the Poshé super fast drying top coat on my right side and used the Seche Vite on my left hand. I did everything the same and…….the Poshé disappointed me!

It smudged and I had to do my nails on my right side all over again. Urg!

I still used the Poshé on my right hand and just didn’t do anything for a while with my hands so it wouldn’t smudge again. I wanted to test the daily wear and tear and see what would happen and again…the Poshé disappointed me.

Poshe fast drying top coat vs Seche Vite

You can see the scratches on the right side which has the Poshé super fast drying top coat and absolutely no wear and tear on the left hand with the Seche Vite top coat on.

I will stick to the Seche Vite top coat for now until I hear of another so-called fast drying Holy Grail top coat.

Here’s what the Poshé Super Fast Drying Top Coat has to say about their product:

  • Dries to the touch in 1 minute
  • Dries to the nail in 5 minutes
  • Chip resistant – Protects Nails
  • 2 UV inhibitors
  • Protects nails
  • Self-leveling
  • Non-dragging
  • Ideal for nail art
  • Easy to apply

Five Time Winner – Allure Magazine’s Best Topcoat Award!

Poshe Super-Fast Drying Nail Top Coat dries to the touch in 1 minute and dries to the nail in 5 Minutes. The Highest gloss of any product on the market and with no Formaldehyde, Toluene or Nitrocellulose. Cannot turn yellow, even in tanning beds. No UV Lights or Heated Dryers Needed. Poshe Super-Fast Drying Nail Top Coat is a true Topcoat and must be applied over polish or basecoat.

The Aliphatic Resin System: re-wets to revive existing nail polish. Smooths out scratches and abrasions. Dissolves any oxidation and returns existing polish to its original color. Reaches through any lotion residue to re-wet and adhere to.

I personally disagree with the Highest gloss of any product on the market  statement for Poshé. As you can see in the picture that the Seche Vite has a shinier gloss on my nails.

Well Beauties, Seche Vite wins the Poshé Super Fast Drying Top Coat vs Seche Vite challenge!

What is your Go-To Holy Grail Top Coat?



Summer to Fall Zoya Nail Polish collection

Zoya Nail Polish & Treatment has done it again.

I keep falling in LOVE with each of their collections that they keep coming out with.

I absolutely love this collection because I’m in the military and we can only wear conservative nail polish colors in our uniforms.

I’ve been able to try each one of these shades and love each one. I don’t know which one is my favorite of the bunch yet.

The colors are to lust for!

If you’re in the military I would definitely recommend this collection!

You can go to your local Ulta Beauty store or online at Zoya.

I feel in love with Zoya’s first Naturel nail polish collection because I could wear all of the 6 shades while I’m wearing my Air Force uniform and now Zoya has done it again with the Naturel Deux nail polish collection.

The first Naturel collection was introduced in Spring 2014. Zoya’s Naturel Deux collection is supposed to be the Spring to Fall transition.

Again with this collection,  I can wear each shade in my military uniform. Which is a total hit for me!

I received the Naturel Deux collection yesterday in the mail and I asked my Facebook & Instagram peeps which shade I should wear to work first and the votes were coming in and Madeline won!

Zoya Naturel Deux Madeline

Madeline by Zoya can be best described as a full-coverage, muted rose cream. Pair with any of the other Naturel 2 Collection shades for a chic tone-on-tone Fall look!

Color Family – Nude, Mauve
Color Finish – Cream
Color Intensity – 5 ( 1 = Sheer – 5 = Opaque )
Color Tone – Cool
