I can not do my nails without this product. I swear this stuff is *almost* bulletproof. Once I put on polish I forget about it and I can get pretty rough with my hands (and feet). This topcoat takes a beating and keeps on shining. Yes, the formula is thick and goopy and you have to get the hang of applying it, but once you do you reap the rewards. It also revives dull polish and makes not-so-shiny polishes shine like diamonds. Love this stuff.

I have a love/hate relationship with this product. I originally purchased it about a year ago, & yes, retail it is expensive. I didn't see the hype at first, but I think I was trying to apply in thin layers. The trick is to get it go on thick & goopey. That is the way I believe the product is meant to be used. The bottle overall lasts for a long time, but it does start to develop a strong chemical smell after awhile. The longer you have the bottle, the thicker it gets. I actually think that is a good thing though, because it helps the polish stay on longer. I do not plan on "thinning it out". I feel like people should give it a shot, but i have heard of some people being allergic to the ingredients that is in this specific top coat. Oh & yes, it does dry fast & is very shiny! I will purchase again.

I loved this product when I first bought it. Now, I just don't love it anymore.
SV makes my nails shine like crazy! It dries real fast. I don't have to wait as long as I used to anymore.
On the other hand, it does get real thick. I'm about a little under half of a bottle and it is thick. Yes, I'm still using it. My nail polish starts to chip the day after; shrinkage of my nail polish also occurs. The smell, overall, is quite strong...
I don't think I'll ever buy this product again. It's a bit on the expensive side for such a bottle. It doesn't stay the same consistency, so why would I buy another one? Overall, I rate this product a 3...it does it's job, yet it makes me angry because my nail polish doesn't stay on as long.

omg I am so excited for this product. It is perfect for me because obviously I'm the impatient moron that always realizes that I need to go to the bathroom or it's time for bed and my nails are still a bit wet.
I cannot think back to a manicure where I haven't had a little dent, crinkle, rumple or worse...bed sheet smooshes before I learned about this product. Now it's all a thing of the past. Plus my nails look so shiny.
The only drawback of this top coat is smells unbelievably toxically strong. The odor fades rather quickly but I would recommend using it in a well ventilated area.

This stuff dries my nails in 3 minutes. That means I can do my nails right before bed and wake up with beautiful, perfect, glass-like nails without worrying about the crinkled mess that I used to get. Only complaints are the high price and awful smell. Also, this stuff can cause birth defects if you inhale too much, pregnant ladies, beware!

I love this topcoat!!! Previous to this I had used Sally Hansen a top coats and oh so wet topcoat both were mediocre and did nothing that was super special. I tried this because of all the good reviews I had read and I wasnt dissapointed! It dries super fast and leaves your nails so shiny! The polish on my nails also lasts much longer with this than with any other topcoat I've tried. Overall I think this is a very good topcoat worth the money.

Best topcoat I have ever used! The smell is very strong, but once it dries (it dries so quickly!), the smell is gone. This makes my nail polish last days longer than other topcoats and is super shiny. It also dries within minutes! And when I mean dry, I mean I can normally function without worrying about smudging my nail polish.

I am torn between loving and hating it. I hate it because it shrinks my nail polish. And I love it because it dries my nail polish in a matter of minutes. I can apply base coat, 2 nail polish coats (without any waiting time between the applications) and then SV and go to bed an hour later, and when I wake up in the morning my nail polish is as perfect (well, it does shrink, so it's not really perfect) as it was the evening before. It also provides a great shiny finish. As I don't have much time and patience to wait for my nails to dry, this is perfect. I will definitely buy it again.

a new bottle of seche vite works fine with most of the polishes in my collection. i have tried many other topcoats, and few can compare to SV (my nails shine like glass) but when half of the product is left, it gets too thick. yeah i know, i can buy the thinnner but why should i have to?
currently, i am using orly sec'n dry, and while it doesn't get my nails as shiny, it's compatible with all my polishes and it doesn't have a noxious smell to it.
oh yeah, that's another thing that turned me off from SV, it smells soooo bad and it's not b3f.
