Seche Vite

Rescue Beauty Lounge IKB: 2012

Oh. My. Word. I love this polish so much I can’t stand it!!I knew when I first saw swatches of it that I had to have it. I missed the pre-order, so I snagged it first thing when it went up for sale. And good thing! It’s already sold out!

The application was a bit different. Apparently, it’s had more pigment that regular polishes (hence the amazing color), so it was sort of… runny thick? I can’t describe it. But after the second coat, I was good to go. It dries to a satin finish and I like my nails super shiny, so I added some Seche Vite on top. LOVE!

How to Get a Long Lasting Manicure

I’ve tried a lot of combinations of nail products while searching for the best way to make my nails stronger and nail polish stick. This is the latest combination that I’m loving…

  1. One thin coat of Nail Magic: Nail Hardener and Conditioner (available at Sally Beauty)
  2. One thin coat of CND Sticky Base (I bought mine at transdesign.com)
  3. Apply your nail polish color, etc. Usually I do two coats, but it depends on the coverage and how opaque the polish is.
  4. Once coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Topcoat (also purchased at transdesign.com)

I’ve been getting minimal tip wear with this combination. And most of all, my nails are stronger. I attribute that to the Nail Magic. I’ve been using it consistently for about 6 weeks and I’ve seriously noticed a difference in the strength of my nails. It’s also cut down on the the amount of peeling (my nails usually peel because they get so dry). Between lightly buffing out any peeling when I notice it starting, and the Nail Magic, my nails have never been stronger. :)
