Seche Vive* is the new Instant Gel Effect Top Coat from the genius team at Seche. Seche Vite has been a staple in my routine for longer than I can remember. It's the only top coat I've found that gives a beautiful glossy effect, dries almost instantly and keeps my nails chip free the longest. It's not just me that loves it either, it's award-winning and is cult favourite to people all over the world. It's used across catwalks at London Fashion Week and the even the Duchess of Cambridge wore the top coat on her Royal wedding day! So it's safe to say that I'm in good company!
Now the team at Seche are ready for something new and with the rise of gel-effect polishes it seemed like the most logical step to take. Seche have released the Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat, with the aim to make it the gel top coat to outshine all others. The new formulation offers all the fast drying properties from Seche Vite, with the glossy, high shine finish of gel. The best bit is that you don't need an LED light to make it happen and you just have to remove it with any acetone or non-acetone nail polish remover.
Seche Vive comes in the same box as Seche Vite, but the bottle itself is a pretty blue shade. It's an opaque bottle, which means that you can't see when you're going to run out, but I'm hoping it stops the top coat from going gloopy too quickly! The polish applies really easily without dragging or streaking the underlying manicure. It dries very quickly and it leaves your nails with a lovely glossy finish.
I predict that the Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat will be hit with beauty bloggers and manicurists. It is available right now, retailing for £9.99 at Superdrug!
