After the brief, festive reprieve of last week, Sunday Manicure’s back. To make up for taking time off, today’s volume is kind of a double-whammy: I’m testing both a new color and a much talked about speed-drying top coat.
This week’s nail polish is from my favorite Sephora line (see other colors I own here, here and here), so my impressions couldn’t really be anything but favorable. The fantastic, ergonomic brush made application a piece of cake, while the color (a sparkling greyish black) glided on like a dream – as per usual. These polishes dry quick anyway, but today I wanted to try the (raved- about- by- beauty- bloggers- everywhere) famous, Seche Vite top coat. Now, being fully aware of the fact that I’m ridiculously late in doing so, I have to
sing this product’s praises review this. Let me start by saying it’ s one of the thickest top coats I’ve ever used. If that’s not your cup of tea, do think twice before you buy. It’s also got quite a strong smell (which might be annoying to some) compared to other, similar products. If, however, you can find it in your hearts to get past those couple of things you’ll get… drum roll please… dry nails in 1-2 minutes (!!) & a gorgeous, mirror-like finish. Do be careful when applying this (you should try to get in an’out real quick or it will smudge) & make sure your cuticles are free of any polish residue before applying (hard to explain but just trust me on this).
Any of you tried Seche Vite? Do you think it’s worth the hype (and price tag)?
