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
