Happy Sunday lovelies! I was recently contacted by Live Love Polish to review some Seche products for their store. Today I have a review of one polish (Nouveau) and the famous (or infamous, depending on your viewpoint) Seche Vite topcoat. Although, I have tried the topcoat before, I have never had any experience with the brand's nail polishes. Let's take a look, shall we?
Seche Nouveau is a super pigmented charcoal grey creme polish. When I said pigmented, that's exactly what I meant. This baby was perfect in just one coat!! Additionally, the formula was amazing and went on effortlessly. I used two coats as usual, but you can certainly get away with just one. I really liked how shiny this one was, even before Seche Vite Topcoat was applied.
As stated above, I used Seche Vite Topcoat for these pics. To be honest, I really like this topcoat; however, it does cause some weird issues with shrinkage at times. The dry time with this topcoat is nothing short of amazing! I mean...WOW! You can apply this topcoat and you're good to go with a few minutes! With this particular use, I also used Seche Ridge Filling Basecoat (not provided for review), two coats of Seche Nouveau, and one coat of Seche Vite Topcoat and this manicure lasted for a few days before I began to see any signs of shrinkage or normal wear. I'm not sure if the combination of using all Seche products made a difference, but I was pleasantly surprised at how the manicure looked as the days passed. I was also really impressed by the amount of visible shine that remained as time passed!
In all, I absolutely LOVE Seche Nouveau, as the color is perfect in formula, application, and longevity. Seche Vite Topcoat performed impressively as well. Again, I am not sure if it is due to the combination of all Seche products that I used for this review or other factors, but the topcoat was really nice. I also used it on some nail art (it will be featured here soon) and I like how it didn't smear the art and it dried very quickly keeping the design in place. Regardless, I am very pleased with both Seche Nouveau Nail Polish and Seche Vite Topcoat.
