Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat Review

I do my own nails about once a week and, of course, want the polish to last as long as possible.

While I’ve used good top coats before, I was ready to try something new.

Nail Polish Canada sent me Seche Vive Instant Gel Effect Top Coat in lieu of an honest review.

It promises a “glossy, high shine finish without the use of a UV/LED light” and it did not disappoint!
This top coat isn’t much more expensive than other salon brand top coats (it’s only $13.95), and it is completely worth it!

The brush makes it super easy to glide onto the nail, and it’s fast drying. I think my nails were completely dry in 5 minutes.
I love how glossy and smooth it leaves the nails and once dry my nails felt hard so I know that  it could last for a long time.
After four days of wearing the polish I had a chip on one of my nails, much less than I had with other top coats, the other nails pretty much stayed the same as when I first applied the top coat.

The top coat stayed glossy and smooth for almost two weeks, the nail polish chipped a little bit on the tips of the nail and by the cuticle but it stayed well for two weeks.

I wanted to try a new nail art design and removed the polish, it removes easily with any acetone or non-acetone nail polish remover.

I have definitely added it into my regular rotation of nail products.
