I have not posted anything new (when I see my last post on China Glaze - Running around in circles, I feel like crying! My nails aren't doing this beautiful polish any justice T.T ) for months because my nails are this short, miserable bunch of junk. Just too embarrassing to display any beautiful polishes on. Apart from not being able to grow them too long due to me playing guitar on a daily basis, I have found the real culprit to my frustrations and pains: SECHE VITE!
Yes, Seche Vite officially ruined my nails. I will never use it for my fingernails ever again..
|This is the culprit of all evil!|
Usually my nails would be dry and weak if unprotected by nailpolish. Now my nails seemed better without than with my usual coat of polish.. strange.. and then I suddenly realized! It's my top coat!
I stopped using Seche Vite for 1 week and there is instant improvement on my nail condition. Immediately ordered China Glaze Fast Dry Top Coat again, Seche Vite --> garbage can.
|Bye bye Seche Vite!|
I can't understand why I see so many good reviews on this product. Many girls claim this to be their holy grail. Maybe my nails are too sensitive and thin for this highly chemical product. I mean, it does go through all layers of nail polish just to dry everything fast, and there is toluene inside, a very unhealthy chemical. How can that be any good?
Maybe it works better if you have thick strong nails. The only good thing about SV is that it dries up so shiny making any manicure or pedicure just gorgeous! And it does dry very very fast. But the side effects on my nails are just not worth it.
Now I'm slowly letting my pathetic stumps grow so I can finally start posting pretty polishes again~! I ordered some new polishes (haven't bought any for a while, what's the point!) and really hoping to be showing them to you soon on clean, neat looking nails.
Warning: No bottles of Seche Vite were harmed during this photo shoot. I will ask my friend if she wants to adopt my bottle, she has nice, strong nails so maybe she wants to give it a try. ^_^
Are there any girls out there with similar experiences with this product? I am glad to hear!
