Poshe v Seche Part 1

So I have finally got my hands on a Poshe fast-dry top coat. In the spirit of making informed decisions, Pretty Perfect Beauty has performed an advanced scientific test to compare the two highest ranking top coats; on my right hand I put Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, left hand has Poshe Super-Fast Drying Top Coat. I have a Bachelor of Science, and I live for a good scientific experiment :) So here goes!

The Application and Drying Time Test:

Seche: Thick and self-levelling, dries to the touch in 1 min, dry nails in 6 mins 32 sec mins.
Poshe: Slightly thinner than Seche but still self-levelling, dries to touch in 1 min as promised, dry nails in 6 mins.

The Shine Test:

In lack of equipment measuring light reflection or the like, I have relied on my eyes :P
Seche: Glass-like shine
Poshe: Super-wet shine

Check back on Sunday for the Advanced Wear Test, including a whole day of travel, household chores, shopping and partying.

Other points to consider when choosing between the two:
  • Seche is easier to find in the UK, some larger Boots stores even sell it, whereas I had to buy Poshe from the US
  • Poshe is Big 3-free
  • Seche has a more punguent smell, whereas Poshe doesn't really smell that much at all

I am curious about your experiment- does it make a difference if you are right-handed or left-handed since that topcoat will wear faster?

I look forward to the results, either way!

Thanks for doing this,
