    unsure if this is the best place to ask but does anyone have a preferred top coat? i have essie’s “no chips ahead” but it will quite literally still be tacky 12 hours after application and i’m dying because painting my nails already can take like two days if i need multiple coats because of how humid it is here

    I’m partial to Seche Vite because I’m extremely impatient, but I wouldn’t recommend it without Seche Restore because it’s so volatile you will need to refresh it or it will become too thick to use well. Seche Restore can be used to fix dried up polishes as well though, so it’s useful for multiple things.

    Seche Vite gives you an extremely shiny effect even if the polish was matte, which may or may not be to your tastes. A lot of people appreciate it for the depth it gives to the color. It’s not as resistant to damage as slower drying options, but better than no topcoat. It can cause some shrinkage of paint along the tip of the nail, where it leaves the very tiniest sliver of bare nail, but whomst is actually gonna even notice that? And it may or may not be available in the state of California in its general formulation or possibly at all, I’m unsure.

    i got a new top coat! seche vite scared me and i'm cheap so i got essie's "good to go" instead of "no chips ahead"
    i tried them both out as a direct comparison, just one thin layer of each directly on the nail to see how they held up. good to go dried very quickly but no chips ahead was tacky even a couple hours application, so definitely not recommending people get that one.

    i tried it out again today and actually painted my nails, and i'm very pleased with it so far! this is ORLY's bonder base coat, two coats of ILNP's birefringence, and finished with essie's good to go. normally it takes me two full days to finish my nails in order for everything to dry in time and i was able to do this a few hours before bed without it getting messed up, which hasn't been something i could do for a long while. i thought it was just me but no! it was the top coat!

    this is the color range; it goes fully to orange in just the right light but it doesn't photograph well
