Are you the woman who sits down at the nail dryer and instantly hits your newly-polished nails on the back of the machine? Perhaps the woman who attempts to fish for her keys or wallet in her bag and brushes her nails against something? Or maybe you’re the woman who taps your nail’s surface to see if it’s dry, only to result in a big smudge?

We’ve all been this woman, sheepishly shuffling back over to the manicurist to ask if she’ll touch-up our nails just moments after she finished the job.

Well, necessity is the mother of invention, and this problem is exactly why Seche Vite was invented. Regular top coats do take a while to dry — up to half an hour to resist surface smudges, and up to a few hours to completely set.

According to Seche, the product was “formulated to penetrate through nail lacquer to the base coat forming a single solid coating over the nail plate for a much more durable finish.” And that’s exactly how it works, quickly forming a glass-like shield over your polish, so those of us with short attention spans can drastically limit our drying time — and chipping potential.

If you’re doing at-home manicures, it’s a must. And if you get your manicures at a salon, you might consider bringing a bottle of Seche with you to make it last a little longer.

Seche is on sale for $6.99 right now at Sally Beauty.
