Where has this been all my life?? This is the best for me in my opinion fast drying long lasting. This makes my manicures last a very long time no chipping. I purchased this in ebay for about 4.85 .. It does an awsome job for fast drying and long lasting I would not use anything else .

Makes my nails dry fast. What else is there to say?

Meh. This is ok.
It doesn't dry any quicker than Sally Hansen Instadry, it's gloopy and it stinks.
The brush is too skinny.
Sure it's very shiny but not enough to justify the price.
Won't bother repurchasing.

I got this at a beauty expo for £3 which is a brilliant price, however I wouldn't buy again at full price.
It works well, It looks nice, it dries quickly. All things I love in topcoats as I HATE waiting for my polish to dry! But I hate the brush! Why is it so thin? I feel like I have to work really really fast so I don't get ridges, but it's made so much harder with the skinny brush. It also doesn't 'spread' very easily so you are literally topcoating a line at a time, if that makes sense! The shrinkage is also ridiculous. I very carefully wrapped the tips of my nails when I did them last night, the Seche looks like a square of shiny plastic sat on top!
Maybe my one is a bit of a dud, but I prefer Boots No 7 topcoat and will stock up on that instead.

I'll just get my criticisms out of the way first: this stuff is really thick, like REALLY thick. You need to get it on in like one swipe otherwise it dries fast enough you'll see ridges. And after about 6 months it'll require you to buy a bottle of Seche Restore to fix the formula.
That aside, this stuff dries in like 2 seconds flat, is hard as all get out, and is super glossy. Honestly, my favorite top coat ever. I don't expect I'll ever buy another brand again.
EDIT: After a few months (maybe 8?) I found it'd become too thick to spread, but adding Restore will make it chip too easily. I bought a new bottle to replace it, but there was still 2-3 mL at the bottom.

Yes it's shiny and hardens the nails but it chips like crazy actually it chipped the very first day i used it with an opi nail polish

When I first started using this I really loved it. It dries very quickly - within about 30 seconds I could scratch my dog. It's also so tantalizingly shiny! But it has some significant downsides that make it hard to justify that price tag. I couldn't get around the shrinkage. I tried wrapping it underneath the nail, I tried swiping across the tips and then finishing all over, I tried a lot of things and shrinkage always happened. The shrinkage got worse as the bottle wore on. And you know what began to accompany the shrinkage? Dehydration and chipping. I thought I got lucky with my bottle because it didn't get particularly gloopy even halfway through the bottle, but eventually it did get gloopy and unusable. I think the SV brand restore would be worth trying it you're really committed to using this stuff; I bought an off-brand and was surprised that it didn't work. Lastly, the shine. I thought this was weird, but I noticed that the super shiny, slick surface actually made it easier for the polish to appear dull. Bear with me. You can imagine a super high shine chrome surface that smudges easily, right? I felt the same with my nails. I actually found myself polishing my nails on my clothes like you'd polish furniture because the high shine surface seemed to welcome smudges - there were literally fingerprints on my nail polish...! One day I noticed that SH Insta-Dri (in the red bottle) was on sale at my grocery store for $3 and my SV was gloopy/unusable so I bought it. The SH is like a less-amped version of SV - it takes a little longer to dry, it doesn't shrink nearly as much, and it isn't quite as shiny. But the SH might be the product for me, in the end.

its too expensive, although it does wat its supposed to, I buy a cheaper alternative that has the same drying time like seche vite. its a Lebanese brand. its not much cheaper than seche but its still better

I used Orly No Chip before trying Seche Vite. I won't go back. I work with my hands in an unforgiving environment and I get three days with no chips with Seychelles Vite as opposed to Orly where I might get one full day. It is a nice thick formula which is great for my weak nails. Even if it gets thick in the bottle quickly after opening, I don't mind because the product isn't too expensive.

Sure to extend the length of polish without chipping. Somehow the product thickens too quickly in the packaging. Disappointed in that as it's not useable for very long.
