The Goods: Seche Vite Top Coat
Here’s something your mama forgot to tell you — it’s all about the top coat. After three coats (base coat, polish, polish), you think manicure dunzo, that is until you forget for one second too long the beauty-school-dropout task you’ve just completed and touch anything, thus ruining your masterpiece, and pouting about it as you layer on more and more lacquer. Don’t worry, it happened to the best of us.
Enter Seche Vite (translation dry fast). As someone who paints their nails approximately 1.436 times a week, trust me on this one, or ask my coworkers, I’ve already converted them all. Seche Vite is a gel-like top coat, that gives your nails the highest shine I have ever witnessed in a top coat. After painting one thick layer over your colour, the lacquer dries within three minutes, and will elongate your manicure on average up to five days.
No one likes chipped nails, so please save your tips the humiliation, and me the second hand embarrassment, and try out Seche Vite. This product can be found at your local beauty supply store.
