also note, I know dentable isn't a real word but you guys get what I'm saying
I ended up using only 6 topcoats because when I went to open my Out the Door this happened! :0
dried out and broken brush! Has this happened to anybody? I've had it for like a year but I've had topcoats last me way longer!!!!
In this post I will show you the first part of my two part comparison.
DRY TIME AND SHINE.
If you don't want to read all of this I found that Revlon and Seche Vite were the shiniest however Seche always seems to affect the nail color a little bit by either making it lighter or darker, it depends. And no it isn't because my bottle is old, even with brand new bottles of it. The fastest drying time was suprisingly OPI RapiDry Topcoat although my Revlon Quick Dry Topcoat was dry in 1 minute and didn't dent in 2 minutes which all the others tend to dent even after they are dry to the touch.
I will tell you what I have on each nail although I don't think you can tell the difference anyways.
pinky- Zoya armor
ring- Essie Good to Go! (claims to be dry in seconds)
middle- Poshe (claims to dry in 1 minute flat)
index- Revlon Quick Dry Topcoat (Claims to dry in 30 seconds)
thumb- OPI RapiDry Top Coat
thumb: Seche Vite
[pictured I am wearing OPI's Dim Sum Plum from the Hong Kong collection - 1 COAT!]
Without any polish under these topcoats they were all dry to the touch in 1 minute.
With 1 coat of OPI's Dim Sum Plum under:
ZOYA ARMOR: in 1 minute it was still dentable and wasn't very shiny
ESSIE GOOD TO GO: 2 minutes fully dry and was perfect. Shine was pretty good and was hardly dentable
POSHE: 1 minute to fully dry good shine, still a little dentable
REVLON QUICK DRY TOPCOAT: after 30 seconds it is dry to a LIGHT touch. Super shiny and after 2 minutes it is perfect and hard as a rock.
OPI RAPIDRY TOP COAT: 50 seconds to be dry to the touch although still able to be dented
SECHE VITE: 1 minute to dry, still dents. I love the shine of Seche Vite but I really get frustrated when it thickens and make bubbles, also it always alters the color of my polish
Another post with another part of this comparison will be coming soon! I hope you enjoy this 3 part series comparison. Give me your opinion in the comments below
