Best top coat ever! Dries quickly and super shiny. Every time I give myelf and manicure, at least one person comments on the shine of my nails. Every person needs this top coat.

Works so well! Goes on easily, dries really fast. Gives nails a still-wet look. The only downside is that it smells really badly.

Oh. My. GOD. You know when someone asks you what 3 makeup items you can't live without? Mine are eyebrow pencil (which can double as a liner) mascara, and THIS. Seche Vite is incredible. I have the thinnest nails ever, and even wearing this alone allows me to grow them out. But this is where the REAL magic happens: you know those amazing glitter polishes you have that look amazing in the bottle, but when you put it on your nails the you have to put on 4 or 5 coats to get that densely packed glitter effect? And how that is nearly impossible because the polish never dries fully? NOT ANYMORE. I am wearing 5 coats of China Glaze's Techno, the most AMAZING holo glitter shade. By itself, it dried terribly rough...and "dried" is a stretch. I added a layer of Seche Vite, and now my nais are smooth, shiny, and sparkly- within ONE MINUTE!! Best topcoat EVER. Thanks, SV!!

Dear Seche Vite,
WHERE HAVE U BEEN ALL MY LIFE??!!
Sooo yesterday was the first time I tried Seche Vite and let me tell u I'm getting rid of all my old top coats and stocking up on bottles of this miracle product!
I love nail polish but I hate the fact that my nails take forever to dry. I'm a busy mom of a nearly 2 year old boy and don't have the time or patience to sit around and wait for my nails to dry.
THEN... Seche Vite entered my life and changed everything.
I used this over my freshly done manicure ( while the polish was still wet ) and didn't expect much. BOY WAS I WRONG!! Within a few minutes my nails were dry to the touch! I was AMAZED.
The true test was: would my nails smudge or dent??
Answer: Absolutely no smudges or dents!!
My nails look like they have been professionally done at a nail salon.
When Seche Vite says that this is the worlds finest top coat - They aren't lying!!
If u are impatient - don't have time - want a professional looking mani - want shiny nails then Seche Vite will be your best friend forever.

I'm going to reserve full judgement until I've worn this a few days, but at first try this product does seem amazing. It dries very quickly to a hard wet shine. Almost as good as gel polish.
I was prepared for a toxic smell, so I opened the windows before applying. I was pleasantly surprised. Perhaps they have re-formulated it. I did not find the smell strong or obnoxious.

Oh Seche, how I love you! Silky flowing goodness that makes my manicure oh so shiny and hard, with no shrinkage or other pooey side effects.
I listened to the reviews and bagged some Restore, so if it gets thick I'm sorted.

I love this product. I do a lot of nail art, and I always have a problem with my topcoat smearing the design. This tends to be really aggravating, as you might well imagine. Work hard, then put the final coat on, and BANG! an hour wasted, just because the top coat smeared your design. Utterly annoying. Not so with Seche Vite. The topcoat will NOT pick up and smear your design. The smell, is not great.. it's rather loud. That would be about the only thing I've found wrong with it so far. I've only had it on as a topcoat for a day, so I can't evaluate its chip resistance-y. Drying time... less than 30 seconds, bone dry. By bone dry, I mean, you can touch it, sleep with it on, and do your hair, and it will not mess up the polish. THIS ALONE would be enough of a plus to make me buy it again. It gives the polish a really nice, high gloss finish. I would definitely recommend it, and would definitely buy it again.

So after reading all the great reviews I thought I had found the perfect topcoat but unfortunately not.....okay so it does what it says, the drying time really is great, where with other quick dry products I've tried they make your mani dry to the touch in a few minutes but anything more and the mani is ruined, this really is fully dry within a few minutes and I know I can get on with my day/night and not worry that I might smudge and for this reason I would buy it again and again. My issue is that within a day or 2 (sometimes sooner) the polish chips off in huge chunks, sometimes a whole nail of polish in one, or starts to peel off from the sides. It also thickens up quite quickly and only seche restore can thin it so it becomes more expensive as you have to buy it.

game changing, HG top coat. Will never buy anything else ever again! Shiny vinyl nails that dry in a few minutes...love. ONLY downside is the bottle gets thick pretty quickly so I go through one every couple months, but still worth is. Australia girls, buy on ebay, less than half price that way!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I'll never use another top coat ever again. Period. This dries so fast, no more screwing up your manicure within 10 minutes, no more bed sheet impressions on your nails, just beautiful shiny nails! Yes, it does tend to get goopy half way through the bottle, but I bought some Seche Restore (which you can also use on other polishes as a thinner) and that does the trick!

The only reason why I was hesitant to buy Seche Vite was the price. I'm generally not willing to pay more than $8 for nail polish, which is what polishes such as OPI and Essie cost. However, I saw this top coat at a Japanese cosmetics store in my area, which sells many polishes at a discounted price, so I only had to pay about $6 or $7. I had a manicurist use the top coat on my nails before, so I knew it was high quality. But I'm glad I bought it for myself. It really is the fastest drying top coat, at least for me. I used to use the OPI top coat along with drying drops from The Face Shop, but Seche Vite makes my life a whole lot easier. I tend to mess up my nail polish after a few minutes, since I usually do my nails while I'm on the computer or about to go to bed. It also makes my nails super glossy and professional looking.
I do realize that there is a concern for the chemical in the polish that can cause reproductive defects, which is really the only issue I have with it. However, I personally think it isn't a significant amount to cause something major. Overall, great product for impatient people like me.

Eh. I don't buy Seche Vite very often, but I would buy it again. I'm torn between loving and hating it. Literally half way down the bottle gets VERY goopy--causing nail polish shrinkage, making it difficult to apply cleanly, etc. It also stinks more so than other polishes. It drys super fast and you can apply it on wet polish (actually its preferred that way) which is a plus. I just find it annoying that you basically have to get the seche restore liquid to continue using it. I haven't done that yet but yeah. Lots of quirks with this top coat. I haven't found a top coat that is this shiny though. I LOVE the shine. I said i would buy it again but i'm 50/50 on purchasing it again really.

Love this top coat. Makes my polish last forever. I have tried all the drugstore brands as well as the more expensive brands like opi. I have to say that this top coat is my favorite. It isn't the cheapest but you save on polish, salon, and nail polish remover costs.

This has been my HG top coat for years. Dries super fast in a highly-glossy finish. I'm not a very patient person and this top coat literally dries nail polish to touch in < 1 min (you need to wait a little longer if you really want to put pressure on your nails). The only downside is its smell -- pretty awful even if you don't purposely inhale it. A comparable product without the smell is Deborah Lippmann's fast drying topcoat -- but it's slightly more expensive.

I've been hearing about this one and came across it in Boots earlier, so I figured what the heck and grabbed it. Wow! This is def. my new HG top coat. High shine, dries quickly and didn't smear my Konad stamps. A little pricey for a top coat, but worth every cent!

HOLY GRAIL! Omg so I bought this a few days ago, and only used it for two mani's, but I already feel the need to write a review. I bought it at Sally's for 8 bucks, but I got a free Stripe Rite polis ($4) so it wasn't too bad. This top coat dried my polish in like 30 seconds, if even that. It gives my nails a wet look so they're super glossy and awesome. It's also really good with no chipping, and ugh I love it so much!!!!

This is the best top coat I have ever used, ever. I don't know how long it's going to last since I've read a few reviews on it drying and gunking up but I did my nails last night and they are dent, smudge, bump free it's pretty much the product I have been looking for. My co-workers wife owns a salon and only uses Seche Vite. I luckily found it at Winners for only $7 and it is definitely worth it especially if you like to do a quick mani before bed....Highly recommended!

I've lost count how many of these I have repurchased! I will never buy another brand top cost ever again. This makes my manicure look salon 'done'!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Black
I don't know how many times I bought this.
This is GREAT. Dries quick, adds beautiful shine.
Yes it has a big problem, which it dries too quick in the bottle too, but i found a way to solve the problem so i keep buying it.
I used to add Seche Restore one day before I paint my nails.
But an internet guru told me to add the Restore just after I use Seche Vite.
She does so and she can use Vite till it's over.
and it seems it's working to me too.
When i could use it always only half of the bottle, that was a too expensive top coat, but if i can use full bottle, it's really worth to buy!

This is my all the time go to top coat. I have so many random bottles all over the place. My biggest complaint is that it does not last until the bottle is gone. It gets thick quicker than most other polishes, which sucks because it isn't exactly cheap. However, it makes any and every manicure look professional. It adds crazy shine, evens out even a less than stellar paint job, intensifies any color and dries sooo quickly. Its the only way I can manage to not ding a nail every time I paint them (which is everyday lol). My friends always ask how I am able to paint my own nails so well, and this is my secret weapon. Of course there is a level of skill required to get your non dominant hand to cooperate, but this top coat really helps. Just use it before it gets too thick.
One last note, my nails tend to chip FASTER with this top coat. It doesn't really bother me because like I mentioned earlier, I tend to do mine daily. So if you're looking for something that LASTS for more than a couple days, this isn't it.
