How have you been? I'm back to review a new gel-type system from Seche. Honestly, I don't understand the fuss about gel-like polishes. I find that they are a little more glossy than your regular nail polish, but that's it.
So for this post, I want to tell you that I may change my mind about gel-like systems. I have been given the whole 3-step package to try.
1. Base: And I thought it was our normal base coat. I applied it as I usually would--all five fingers, then return to see if it has dried. After a couple or so minutes, the base was still sticky!! But that was how it was supposed to be. They say it has "adhesives and plasticizers to secure lacquer to all nail types for long lasting finish."
2. Lacquer: I layered my lacquers right after I found out the base was not gonna dry normally. The lacquers went on like butter on my nails. They were all easy to apply and were self-leveling. I had no problem with streaking or glooping. All of them were opaque in two coats.
3. Sealant: On my first attempt, I found that the brush was a little unruly. I was told to just clean it with polish remover, and it fixed itself. This top coat sealed my polish and nail art really nicely. It gave the mani the shine that I wanted, and it also dried instantly. The Seche brand did not disappoint.
This looks really promising. I have done 3 designs using 3 different colors. Here they are:
Overall, I love the colors that I got, and how easily I can apply them. I like that I haven't seen the same colors in their regular Seche polishes, so I have a wider array of hues to choose from. For now, they have 72 different shades. I'm also happy about the new bottles--very unique, and a breeze to store. I also love that the bottles indicate the 3-step process , making it easier to use. The price is very reasonable, nothing too expensive.
I will update you ladies on how long this mani lasts me. I usually don't wear the same polish / nail art more than 3 days. I'm hoping this one doesn't chip easily! :) Come back for the update in a week!
