Barry M v SecheVite – Top Coat Challenge – The RESULTS!




I posted a couple of weeks ago about being super excited to have the Seche Vite top coat. I bought it off Amazon for £7.19 and wanted to see how it compared to my (beloved) £2.99 Barry M topcoat. The results are pretty conclusive….!


All these photos were taken between 24 and 48 hours of wear and used identical nail colours. I used the clear as a base coat and top coat on opposite hands and even swapped Left and Right in case one hand gets more of a battering that the other!

The problem with the Seche Vite was that it peeled off in big leaves (see below). In a tiny way this was a plus as it didn’t damage my nails and discouraged me from picking at chipped edges. However, it meant they got their first BIG chip within a couple of hours. Only worth it if you’re going to an event immediately after painting them.





So, have I missed the point? All the big beauty bloggers love this top coat so maybe I’ve lost the plot! Would love to hear your thoughts and experiences….
