Best Beauty Buys - Seche Vite - Manicures See All Photos Time Inc Photo Studio (2) See All Photos

Wave goodbye to chipped manicures and faded nail colors! Seche Vite’s Dry Fast Top Coat is so tough, it will keep your lacquer intact for over a week, which is why it’s won the best top coat award in our Best Beauty Buys eight times. “It penetrates every layer of polish so nails are less-likely to chip,” said London manicurist Anatole Rainey, who has lacquered up the famous fingers of Adele, Kate Moss, and Keira Knightley. The product’s French name translates to “dry fast,” and it certainly lives up to the title—the top coat is ready to go 90 seconds after you sweep it on, making unexpected post-mani smudges a thing of the past.
