Live Love Polish Seche Vite and Seche Audacious Review

*Press Sample, Affiliate Links*

Hi everyone! I recently received two Seche products from Live Love Polish to review for you! I'm sure that most everyone has heard of Seche Vite topcoat which I will be talking about in this post, but Seche also has their own line of polish and this is my first time trying them out. I've seen some swatches and read good things about these before, so I was very excited to get to try one for myself!

The polish that I was sent is Seche Audacious, a bright reddish pink creme. I'm pretty picky with cremes, and I was very impressed with the formula of this one because it was smooth and creamy with no dragging or pooling. With really careful application, it could be a 1 coater, but I used 2 thin coats here topped with 1 coat of Seche Vite topcoat. The color is really bright and cheerful and is one that I can see myself using a lot in the warmer months!

Now I will talk a bit about Seche Vite topcoat. I used to use Seche Vite exclusively several years ago. It is actually the topcoat that really got me into nail polish...quick-dry topcoat was a game changer! Over time though, I gravitated away from it because I found that it didn't play well with all brands of nail polish (namely Zoya, which I wear a lot) by causing polish shrinkage at the nail tips with those brands. Also, Seche Vite has to be used over polish while it is still wet/damp or it will cause polish to peel off in sheets, so it isn't ideal for manis where nail art is involved where (at least in my case) the base is pretty dry by the time you decide to topcoat.

 Now the great things about Seche Vite (and why it has so many loyal fans):
*Fast Drying
*Super Shiny
*Thicker consistency (so it is easier to smooth out glitters without multiple coats)
*Very little bubbling (at least in my experience, if you keep it well thinned using Seche Restore, which is my very favorite Seche product that I use it religiously to keep all of my polishes thinned)

After re-trying Seche Vite again with this mani, I am pleased to report that it worked beautifully with Seche Audacious with no shrinkage at the tips and it has a wonderful shine! I'm going to re-incorporate it into my mani routine a bit and see how it plays with my polishes. Who knows, I may fall in love with it all over again for doing simple manis that I want dry in a hurry because you can't argue with that shine!

You can find Seche products on Live Love Polish's website along with many other brands of nail polish and nail products. Be sure to follow them on Instagram ( to see lots of beautiful manis done with products that they carry!

So what are your feelings about Seche Vite topcoat? Are you a fan? Have you ever tried Seche's nail polish line? Thanks for looking everyone!
