“ Brand: Seche / Type: Nail Varnish / Suitable for: Nails „
I have a Glossybox subscription, and this was one of the goodies in my December box. I tend to bite my nails, and don't often wear nail polish, but I liked the idea of this, as it looked to be a premuim brand, although not one that I've heard of before.
The colour that I received was 69242 Rendezvous, which I would describe as a bubblegum pink colour. The website describes it as a bright creme pink, and this would be an accurate description in my opinion.
While I hadn't heard of the brand before, they have been in existence since 1991 and they are best known for their quick drying top coat, and their topcoat is now available in 58 shades, one of which I own, thanks to Glossybox. All Seche's nail polishes are also free from DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde.
From a few other reviews, I was expecting a quality product, and I wasn't disappointed. The long lid and wide brush meant that it was easy to apply even for a novice like me. The wide brush means that I only needed a couple of strokes to cover my whole nail, and I found that the consistency of this also helped with the application - it wasn't too thick or too watery.
I found that I only needed one coat of this polish to get a bright colour, and I was also amazed when I found that it dried almost instantly as well. It also leaves a very glossy sheen, and looked like I had applied a top coat, when I'd only applied the one coat.
I also have found that with some other brands, my polish chips after a day or two, but I can manage a week with this polish. It is however, very easy to remove once it does start to chip.
I would definitely recommend this nail polish - it is slightly more expensive than some, but it is well worth the £9 or so that it will cost you, as you don' need a topcoat with this polish, and you do end up using less because it is such good quality. According to the packaging, this should keep okay for 36 months. While this isn't a colour of polish that I would have chosen, I found that I really did like this when it was on my nails, and I will definitely check out more from this brand. It is a good brand to try if you are a bit of a novice when it comes to nail polishes, as it is pretty much foolproof in it's application.

This is a review of Seche Elegant nail varnish which I recieved in a recent beauty box. I have used the Seche base and top coat in the past and know they are highly regarded in the beauty industry so I was pleased to try a coloured nail polish by the same makers. This would not be a colour I would have chosen, in that it is a metallic, coppery colour but sometimes it's good to break your own boundaries so I gave it a try on my toes as a low risk strategy (!).
A bit about
The Seche brand have only recently released a new line of nail colours which includes the colour 'elegant' amongst its 33 available colours. They are free from DBP, Toluene and Formaldehyde.
I was amazed that just one coat was enough to coat the nail completely and there was no need for further coats. It didn't dry quickly like the top coat does but I found a layer of their top coat added a great gloss and glass like finish to the coppery colour. I used a base coat as the colour was strong and I wanted to avoid staining the nail. I also find this helps with removing polishes as long as you sweep upwards with the remover rather than grinding it in to the nail bed.
I was impressed with the quality of the nail colour and its coverage but sadly was not enamoured with the colour. I would definitely not wear this copper tone on my finger nails. It was passable on toes but they are quite covered in Winter so I don't have to look at them that often!
Price and size
The bottles are on the generous side at 14ml and can be bought online in all the 33 colour ways at £4.65 from the beauty express website.
I would definitely be interested to try further colours from the Seche range, but will probably pass this bottle on to my mum who does like coppery and orange toned nail varnishes. I think that it's great that Seche have developed a further range and think it will be a best seller amongst those who already use their famous quick drying top coat and they also sell a thinner for when your polish thickens (usually when the bottle gets half empty) and I think this would work well in their coloured polishes too. I think the prices are quite reasonable for a high quality polish and am only sorry I didn't really like the colour I got in my beauty box.
