So I’m going to compare these two very popular fast-drying top coats.
INM Out the Door:-takes a longer time to dry; it stays sticky ‘til it’s dry-bubbles appear if it’s too thick-a bit streaky-the wear is better-thinner formula-doesn’t shrink-about $5 at Sallys, I have no idea how much at other locations.Seche Vite:-amazing shine-dries quickly-gets too thick once the bottle’s half empty-shrinks-perfect for coating thick glitter polishes-costs about $8 at certain locations (I get it for much cheaper..if you’re in LA/OC I can let you know where)
I know everyone has different reviews on these two top coats, but I’ve always stuck with Seche Vite. The other day, I bought a huge Seche Vite bottle kit that also comes with the regular size just to refill whenever I run out (it was only $15! I Twitpic’d it here). I have two kids, and with all that’s going on, I always need my nails to dry faster. When I was using Out the Door, my nails got messed up in a couple minutes. I also saw the streaks & it still felt sticky. I often use glitter polishes & Seche Vite seems to smooth them out perfectly, all with a great shine. However with INM you do save more money, no shrinkage & you do get less wear over a few days. I’ll be keeping my INM as back up.
What do you think? What’s your favorite top coat?

  11. shesreallyamermaid answered: Im sad you had a bad experience with Out The Door. My bottles are always amazing, i havent had issues w/ bubbles, streakiness, or stickiness
  12. ohwesternyouth answered: I agree seche does get thick, but damn, can’t beat that fast dry and amazing shine! I’m in long beach, where can you get it for cheaper?
  13. ashleyaye answered: I liked the one you recommended me. the seche vite. it works magic
  14. ohheyquyen answered: Seche Vite & opi fast dry top coat. those two are my absolute favorites! <3
  15. confettidancefloor answered: Lovely comparison! I swore off SV for the shrinkage. INM topcoat and Gelous basecoat are my holy grail combination! Mani lasts for weeks!!
  16. drinkcitra answered: Nice review :) I’ve used Seche but recently found Poshe super fast drying top coat. It dries fast, is non-yellowing and has a nice shine
  17. lovealwaysx answered: i like jordana quick dry top coat :)
  18. looseey answered: ahhhh @ the stores I recommend, they are much cheaper! (=
  19. justjeanny answered: i stick with seche vite also. the nail supply place i go to has this thinner, specifically for seche vite during that half-bottle-crisis!
  20. shanniebee-lovesthenails answered: Definitely Seche Vite. I don’t mind the shrinkage too much, as long as it’s applied well and none gets stuck to my cuticles.
