I've been hearing a lot lately about Revlon's Quick Dry Top Coat so I picked up a bottle for myself and a bottle for Amanda.
On the first usage, I didn't think this product was as good as Seche Vite. The product is thinner than the SV version and I wasn't sure I liked the brush. It lacked the thick glassy, glossy shine I'm used to with SV. A rather lackluster first impression.
But.. first impressions can often be wrong...
I've used it several times since then and.. well.. I think my opinion is beginning to change! I'm liking this product more and more. I used it over my konading yesterday and had no streaks or smears. I think the fact that this product is thinner is the key - you aren't dragging the product over partially wet stamping and smearing your design.
I still like the thick glassy look that SV provides, but I've decided this product is an acceptable alternative (with a smaller price tag) and I see myself gravitating to this top coat more and more.
Also I wanted to take a moment to introduce you to a couple blogs that I feel are noteworthy and producing exceptional work. Both of these ladies have nice clean manicures with beautiful original designs and they are my favorite up and coming blogs.
