This top coat is amazing. Absolutely blooming amazing! As you may have read here, I was having my Shellac removed so I thought as I would be painting my nails for the first time in a couple of months I would treat myself to a new top coat! I don't tend to use a base coat when I paint my nails so I applied my nail polish which was Essie Fiji and then I applied this over the top when my nail polish was starting to dry and was sort of tacky. This applied really nicely over the top and didn't smudge the nail polish at all. It dried almost instantly! I couldn't believe how quickly it actually did dry. I applied it over my nails on one hand and by the time I had applied it to the little finger nail, my thumb nail was dry! It leaves my nails so shiny, like a mirror! Okay, well I can't really see myself in them, but they are shiny!
Seche describe this as a top coat that penetrates through the nail polish to the base coat (does this mean I should have applied a base coat?!) to form a solid coating on the nail. My nail polish lasted for 9 whole days looking perfect and without a single chip! I really love this top coat and the bottle seems massive! It's 14ml which I think is about average for a nail polish but it seems really big. I have used this twice now and the bottle still looks full (as you can see in the photo) so I can imagine this will last a long time.
I would 100% recommend this top coat. I got mine from Boots but I can't find this on their website. You can get it from Asos for £10.50.
What is your favourite top coat? Do you use a base coat? I never have so I don't know if it makes a difference?!
