The one brand that nail polish geek talk constantly about is Seche. It is also a brand that I see appearing at every nail polish blog. So what exactly is Seche? The first time I ever read about Seche is from a beauty blog but I cannot remember which. It was actually a mixed review so let’s just say I wasn’t interested with Seche since then because of that review. There is one point of time where I was very much into nail polish. The fear of yellowish nail always bother me so I started to Google more info on Seche and found quite a lot of good review. When Seche finally hit Malaysia shore, I bought not one but two bottle of Seche. Which two? Let’s find out.
I must say. Seche is really confusing. The sub-range for Seche are all named as Seche something something such as Seche Vite, Seche Restore, Seche Ultra-V, Seche Base, Seche Clear, Seche Natural and Seche Plus. See! It’s so confusing! Eventhough so I have a clear mindset of what I want – Seche Clear™ Crystal Clear Base Coat and Seche Vite™ Dry Fast Top Coat.
Seche Clear™ Crystal Clear Base Coat – RM45
There is three type of base coats in Seche namely Seche Base, Seche Clear and Seche Natural. When it comes to base coat, Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat is the best seller and highly recommended.
It is only created after ten years of development with one objective, which is to offer a clear base coat for nail polish that does not turn yellow but adhere to the natural nail at the same time.
Crystal Clear Base Coat dries up in lightning speed. I can immediately apply nail polish on top of the base coat in no time.
Seche Vite™ Dry Fast Top Coat – RM45
Now that I have Crystal Clear Base Coat to protect my nail, what about my nail polish? That’s where Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat comes in. I guess you’ve heard a lot about this iconic Dry Fast Top Coat before. It’s everywhere!
This top coat is widely acknowledged as the world’s finest top coat. It is specially formulated to penetrate through nail lacquer, deep into base coat to form a single solid coating over the nail plate for a much more durable finish. Same as base coat, Dry Fast Top Coat will not yellow and prevent nails from chipping and peeling. As a result nail is stronger and silky smooth.
Despite the warning on the label saying this Seche Vite will cause birth defects, I reckon it is still okay to use since I’m not using a big amount on a frequent basis and I definitely know that I’m not drinking this so it is actually still safe to use. If this product were to be used as skin care, it would have been banned by the MOH.
This base coat and top coat duo work well hand in hand. Nowadays with my busy work schedule I can only change my nail polish once every 2 weeks oppss! With Seche Clear Crystal Clear Base Coat on, my nails doesn’t turn yellow. There is once I tried leaving nail polish on for 3 weeks and guess what…my nails natural color is still visible. There was no sign of yellow stain.
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat is a different story. Not only it gave extreme shine to my nail polish, it also protect it from early chipping and peeling. I said earlier that I only change my nail polish every 2 weeks right? There is minimal chipping on the tip mainly because I have Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat on. It prolong the life span of nail polish on my nails. Some user said that the shine is only for a good few days. For me it lasted until I removed it.
