Hilfe!


2nd try with Seche Vite and it still chips faster than without Seche. What am I doing wrong? Basecoat this time was Orly's Bonder. Then 2 coats of China Glaze's Classic camel and on top of that, one coat of Seche Vite. Chipped within 24 hours.

As far as Classic camel goes - it looks lovely in the bottle. Looks like something out of a diaper when you try to paint it on your nails. A thick mess. Could cover in one coat if you're good with a brush. As I am not, I had to do two. Doesn't look as amazing on my nails as in the bottle but paired up with China Glaze's Ingrid, I think it will make an excellent coffee-inspired manicure. Ingrid being the half-moon on top of Classic camel - sounds good enough.

The nails in the picture above look a bit duller than in real life. The golden shimmer in Classic camel brings out the red undertones in your skin and when you try to take a neutral photo, the polish ends up looking flat. It's not. It's shimmery. Think a latte with the fat (from the milk) glistening. Not so much camel as a latte, I'd say.

Låter du lacket torka innan du målar på SV? Isåfall är det nog där det felar.
Det ska målas på när lacket fortfarande är "blött", det brukar gå bra att måla båda händerna och sen på med överlack direkt därpå.

The same thing happens to me with Seche Vite! I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, it chips within 24 hours and I can peel it off within 48 hours. I wish I could find a good top coat that doesn't chip!

->SaintBella: Testade båda varianterna. Först med torrt och sedan med nästan torrt/direkt efter. Då tog Seche upp guldglimret från Classic camel och missfärgade penseln samt gjorde lacket ojämnt.

->Kelly: I am starting to think this needs to come with a manual. Maybe I'm just not smart enough to figure it out? I even re-did it without Bonder thinking it was its' eh..rubbereffect that made the manicure peel, but it happened without as well. So far I've only used China Glaze's polishes with Seche, can that be it? It can't, can it?

Kelly said...

Thats the only thing I think it might be because I've only used Seche with China Glaze as well. I'll try it again tonight with a different brand and see how it turns out.

You know what? I think CC looks great on you! And about Seche - did you apply it over still wet polish or did you wait until it dried a bit?

You're not doing anything wrong... SV simply doesn't like some (most?) nail polishes. I get good wear with some (few) and horrible with others. I've had a nail polish peel off my nails completely within six hours. Unless I wrap the polish on the tips, it doesn't prevent tip wear. Apply it wet, dry, anything in between... Won't repurchase, quite frankly.

->Kelly: That's going to be my next attempt. I remember somebody writing about body chemistry (what we apply/is resorbed) and polish, the clashes, and I am starting to think that might be it. My soap/deoderant/perfume/whatever clashes with Seche? Everybody eems to be praising it, so it can't be this bad, can it?

->Nihrida: That was what Bella wrote in swedish (sorry, we've got our own little conversation going) and I have tried on wet as well as dry. Wrap it around the tip. not wrapping it. Using a basecoat and using none- It won't work.

->Uma t a Patricia: That is what I think deep down, that it's a hype nobody dares to question, but I am hoping I am wrong. It wasn't a cheap hype, that's for sure

Kanskje du har på for tynt lag? Jeg har på et tykt lag med SV over våte negler, og da "smitter" den ikke over på penselen. Men med et tykt lag SV får man en veldig blank overflate.

Neglene mine chipper uansett etter 1-2 dager, så jeg har begynt med kur for å gjøre neglene sterkere - håper det hjelper. :)

In english: have you tried a thicker layer? I use a lot at the time and then it doesnt transfer to the brush. But it makes the laquer look very shiny.

Jag älskar Seche Vite och har inte märkt att det skulle chippa de få gånger jag bär lack mer än 24 timmar. Nu har jag precis varit mer uthållig så flera manikyrer har fått sitta på 3-4 dagar, inget chippande oavsett märke på lacket.
Jag gör så här: Lackar naglarna, applicerar SV direkt medan det är vått men - och här kommer tricket- jag "målar" inte på det. Jag tar upp penseln ur flaskan och droppar på en droppe SV vid nagelbasen och sen hjälper jag till med penseln för att få ut det jämnt. Det blir alltså, som Jorid skriver, ett tjockt lager och då får man inte problem med att dra med färg på penseln. Med de tekniken får jag heller inget krympande av lacket eller andra konstigheter som man kan drabbas av annars.Jag hoppas du får till det med SV för det är ett suveränt överlack! :D

schmut said...

->Sminkan: Ok, det knepet ska jag testa.
Men jag måste bara fråga: om du byter lack så ofta, vad använder du för lackborttagning? Det är nästan det mest kritiska skedet i mitt lackande för just removern tycker jag tär något oerhört på naglarna.

Sminkan said...

Jag använder Ciens remover från Lidl, den är skonsam nog för att användas flera gånger per dag. När jag swatchar ibland (som ChG julkollektion nu senast) kan jag byta lack tio gånger på en dag utan att det blir alltför stora påfrestningar på naglarna.

I am so glad I found this post, I mean I was feeling I had alien nails that just didn't speak Seche Vite!!

Rubbish product for me so far, I prefer Essie's Good to Go or To Dry For.
Don't get me wrong, it does work as far quick drying & shine are concerned, but I can't stand the chipping and peeling, it's a joke what it is.
