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?

Holy Grail Beauty Products To Try

It’s a new month and y’all know how I like to switch up on beauty products.  So, this month I started using a few Holy Grail suggestions from others.

April Holy Grail Beauty Products

HAIR:

  • Moroccanoil Treatment

SKIN:

  • Mystelic Vitamin C Beauty Serum
  • Dermalogica Daily Microfoliate
  • Shiseido White Lucent Brighten Emulsion

MAKEUP:

  • Advanced Mineral concealer

EYES:

  • Fysiko Eyelash Serum

So these are the new products that I’m currently using.

The reason I chose these products is that I have oily acne prone skin.  My hair is super long and chemically highlighted. I have dark circles around my eyes, and for my lashes, they are asian straight! 😉

I’ll be back soon to give you my thoughts on these products individually.

Have you used any of these?  Are any of them your Holy Grails?

If you have guy friends, boyfriends,  husbands,  or significant others,  they may wonder why we have so many different pink lipsticks.  As you can tell by the pictures, they are all different in one way or another.

I tend to buy MAC lipsticks because of their long-lasting staying power.

My HOLY GRAIL Pink lipstick is MAC Angel.  During the Spring or Summer times, this is my every day pink lipstick for work.  Match it with a nice smokey eye and all is gorgeous!!  I love the way that it has a vanilla scent to the lipstick too.  I usually always smell it before I apply it on my lips.

As you can tell, I love my different shades of MAC pink lipsticks.

What pink lipsticks do you rock on your lips?

GlamGlow SuperMud First Impression Review

I’m sure if you’re into facials, cosmetics,  skin care,  hair care,  the beauty industry,  etc…… Then you’ve heard of this thing called GlamGlow SuperMud.  It’s supposedly the Holy Grail of skin care.

GlamGlow SuperMud First Impression Review

I’ve read tons and tons of reviews, watched YouTube videos, etc and I woke up yesterday and said, “Damnit,  I gotta try it!”

Told my kiddos, “Get up, get dressed, we’re going to the mall!”  Sephora to be exact!

I was already in the hunt for a new foundation, which I decided on Hourglass Immaculate Foundation.  So, I was now going for two things!

This year I’m really getting serious on my skin care routine.   I’m not getting any younger and I want to make sure that I can at least work on slowing down the time of gravity to my skin.

You’re gonna see some super close up pictures of my very bare, no makeup, flaws and all naked face!  You have been warned!!

The way the GlamGlow Clearing SuperMud is supposed to work is it pulls out all the grossness that’s in our skin while it’s on.  You’ll see EVERY pore on your face!!

It’s supposed to grab all that gunk and toxins out, shrink your pores, smooth your skin like a newborns bottom,  firms your skin, clears your complexion, brightens your skin, fights unwanted breakouts, speeds up the healing process of your current breakout, and gives you an all-around youthful gorgeous face!

Now for $69 for 1.2 fl ounces, it better darn do ALL of those things!

I do have to say that the packaging is Glamorously Gorgeous!  I was lucky enough to get the gift set that includes the GlamGlow YouthMud for the price of the GlamGlow Clearing SuperMud, so SCORE for me!!

GlamGlow SuperMud First Impression ReviewGlamGlow SuperMud review

This is just my First Impression Review, so later I’ll be able to give you full details of the long run.

After I took a nice hot shower to open my pores, I went ahead and grabbed my MAC 190 brush and the GlamGlow SuperMud and applied a thin layer quickly on my skin.  It starts to dry almost instantly. I used a brush because it glides on smoother and evenly and I wouldn’t have to waste any of this super expensive mud!

Who would have thought that my frugal self would spend $69 on MUD!!

Anyways……..Here’s those pictures that I warned you of!!  These are the Before & After side by side of the nose, right side cheek, left side cheek, and full frontal!

GlamGlow SuperMud reviewGlamGlow SuperMud reviewGlamGlow SuperMud reviewGlamGlow SuperMud reviewGlamGlow SuperMud review

I can totally see and feel the difference!!

The scent of the product is amazing.  Which is a definite plus since it’s on our face. We don’t want to have to smell some nasty chemicals/ingredients near our nostrils.

Is it worth the HYPE Hollywood’s finest are giving it?

After just my 1st use, YES it’s worth all the hype and $69!

Supposedly,  with this little jar of youth, you’re able to get 17 full usages.

Until next time Dolls

Can you see the difference? 

What are your thoughts?  Chime in!  I want to hear what you have to say!
