What: Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat, $10
Why: Because chips and nicks are so passé—yet hard to avoid when I’m digging for my keys after my latest mani. Even when relegated to the high-tech nail-dryer machines, it’s hard to avoid a couple of “oops” dents.
One thick coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat acts as polish armor, making my newly lacquered nails nearly invincible in record time. The formula purportedly penetrates through the polish and base coat, encouraging greater adherence to the nail.
No matter the science, seven days without a chip or nick is enough proof for me.
