Top and base coats add staying power to any mani – from netural to glitterball – but they rarely get the attention they deserve. This month, we’re turning the spotlight on this unsung, but absolutely essential, member of your nail line-up.
Best in Show: Quick Dry Time
In a hurry? Try Seche Vite™ – a cult quick-dry formula with a spot in the Vogue 100 Beauty Hall of Fame. Just apply a generous coat over your chose colour to cut down on what can seem like endless waiting time. Top tip – even with quick-dry products, make sure to give your nails at least five minutes resting time before touching anything. A few minutes of patience beats redoing a smudged mani.
Best in Show: Strengthening Treatment
You’re fighting an uphill battle if you’re applying polish to dry, brittle, or peeling nails. Sound familiar? Try Seche Rebuild™. It helps to strengthen weak, thin, or soft nails by sealing the layers of the nail together to keep them in tip-top shape. Bonus: it actually reinforces and thickens nails over time to leave them strong and flexible.
Best in Show: Good Foundations
The key to long-lasting wear? It’s pretty simple – a solid base. Without it, nail polish chips and flakes in record time! Seche Base™ has been specially formulated to disguise nail imperfections and provide the best anchor for your polish to hold onto.
Best in Show: Chip Master
Nothing ruins a mani quicker than unsightly chips. You could spring for salon gel manis, but it’s just as easy to get the same long-lasting results at home. Seche Vite™ provides a chip-proof, mirror-like seal. Just re-apply a coat every three days to extend the longevity of your mani.
