O M G why didn't I buy this stuff sooner!??!?!!? I'm nuts for waiting! I have worn SV with two manis now and they are both absolutely gorgeous - no chipping! And they are soooo shiny, oh my goodness I'm so in love with this stuff (besides the smell). I don't think I've ever had better looking manis!
So I have finally tried this with quite a few manis and I don't like it. My nails chip faster it seems and there is so much shrinkage that my tips are bare by day 2. Am I doing something wrong? It does give a beautiful shiny gloss but what is the point if I have to do my nails again the next day.
I am a recent convert to top coat application. I do know this though. I have used Orly Rubberized Base Coat, and a couple of layers of OPI nail polish for years. My polish never lasted more than a couple of days, but now I am using the same Orly base coat and Sinful Colors Nail Polish, and the Seche Vite topcoat and my polish lasts at least seven days. I work in a lab constantly gloving, degloving, and washing my hands. I don't know what combination is making my manicure last longer, but I am loving this combo.
