How to make your manicure last for weeks! (Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, Barry M Basecoat Topcoat & Nail Hardener All In One)

This post is sharing my nail secrets since I hear many friends complaining about how their nails don't last. 

1) Technique

Apply a base coat + nail polish + top coat.

These steps will help to protect your nails and seal in your nail colour.

Also, be careful not to apply too many coats of nail polish, as too thick a layer will make it very easy to chip.

2) Top Coat

This is the primary secret.

The best top coat I have used is the Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

"widely acknowledged as the worlds finest top coat. Its patented formula penetrates through the nail laquer to the base coat forming a single solid coating over the nail plate for a much durable finish, guaranteed not to yellow and leaves nails silky, stronger and resistant to chipping and peeling."

This comes from their website and I totally agree. Available here!

I also really like the Barry M All In One Basecoat Topcoat & Nail Hardener. It works just as advertises, and I really like using it as a topcoat. It is also a more affordable option and easily available in the UK.

My nails usually last about 2-3 weeks. Investing in a top coat means you actually save more money by not needing to get your nails done so often.

Invest in a top coat today! :)
