Best fast drying topcoat. I really dislike the original Seche Vite because it shrunk and peeled right off after a couple of days. This is so much better! No shrinkage or peeling.

This is my #1 fast-dry top coat. Has no one else out there heard of his too?? It's HG for me since the 1st day I used it. It isn't available locally as far as I know, I discovered it via a website when I was buying a nailpolish haul & after that I get it from eBay singly. It has most of the excellent qualities of Seche Vite w/o any of Seche Vite's dreaded pitfalls - No shrinkage! No peeling off nailpolish in sheets. Lower price (generally around $2.50-$3 instead of Seche Vite's $5-$10) although since I have to order it online it ends up costing $5-$6 anyway, but it's well worth shipping costs. No premature thickening in the bottle & getting all gummy & stringy the way Seche Vite does! No streaks or color changes of some susceptible polish colors. No hazardous B3 chemicals. None of all that nasty stuff that turned my love for SV into contempt. It's packaged in the same type bottle as SV (they look almost identical!) but behaves well & performs beautifully. I've been using this since 2010 when I ditched SV & is still my #1 top coat (I formerly adored Jessica Brilliance but that has a thinner consistency & is equally hard to find, plus costlier).

Below I copy-&-pasted Invincible's description from the internet:
"Patented formula allows it to penetrate through the nail lacquer to the base coat forming a single solid coating over the nail plate for a much more durable finish which is guaranteed not to yellow. Invincible is unmatched as a top coat leaving the nail silky feeling, stronger, more durable, absolutely will not chip & creates the highest gloss of any product on the market today. Apply thickly, get a nice bead on the end of the brush, then set softly down on the first nail painted & watch how Invincible flows over the wet nail polish self levels & will not drag or streak the underlying manicure.
* Guaranteed non-yellowing
* Highest gloss
* The fastest drying
* Non-chipping
* Strengthening
* Formaldehyde-Free
* Nitrocellulose Free
* Toluene Free"

It's like the same description & directions as the well-known SV. But for the differences I mentioned above, Invincible is superior & costs much less. It dries virtually as fast as SV, doesn't pull wet polish during application, & remains shiny for the duration of my manicure (I change polish 1-2X per wk). I can generally finish a bottle w/o the need to thin it (over time it thickens just very slightly but remains completely workable w/o using any thinner, though you can if desired - I've done it). IDK why this item isn't well known & more readily available. Does anybody out there use this besides me?

UPDT 9/13/15 -
Still a favorite that never lets me down. Every time I buy a new bottle of this I fall more deeply in love with it. Hope it will always be available. Paired with Revlon Colorstay Gel Smooth basecoat (which is sadly discontinued), my manicures really become INVINCIBLE - longwearing, chip-free, gel quality shine & smoothness. I ony change polish once a week now (or less if it weren't for the new nail growth & required cuticle grooming after a week).
