Some competition right here huh?
I know these two guys are very popular in the beauty world because they are amazing products, but for me, only one of them succeeds. Which one? You'll see.
Ill start of with OPI Drip Dry:
-->This product is great and retails for $9.99 in US and $11.99 in Canada well it depends where you buy it. I am almost out of it just because I try to finish this one first before opening my Seche Vite.
What it claims to do:
--> It helps nail polishes dry up faster.
--> put 1-2 drops and wait for about 60 seconds before touching your nails.
--> nails will dry completely in 5 minutes.
Is this true? I don't agree with it drying completely in about 60 seconds.
What I do: I put on my nail polish probably 2-3 coats and then wait for about 5 minutes to let t dry a little bit, then put 1-2 drops of Drip Dry. After using the Drip Dry wait for about
8-10 minutes in order for your nail polish to dry up completely. (WARNING:I find that if you put more than 2 coats of polish and then apply the Drip Dry immediately it is more prone to getting imprints even if you think that it is already DRY.)
I really like the packaging of this because of the dropper. Lame I know, but hey you guys agree with me too right?
Will I purchase this again?NO I WONT!. Why? because I do not like the feeling after dropping this on my nail varnish. There's something in it that makes my nails feel oily and I don't want that. It doesn't make my nails shiny at all, it makes it even more dull and blah looking.
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
so I do not want the Drip Dry and that means that I love Seche Vite. I swear there is some sort of chemicals in it because it makes nail polishes look darn shiny and pretty. This product retails for 11.99 here in Canada, and I believe it is cheaper in the US. Obviously. haha. I don't really care whether it comes with a brush because I still love the formula of it. I know that there are complaints about it becoming thick when it becomes old. I think it all depends on how you take care of it. Just remember to seal the cap properly or else, air will come in.
what it claims to do: Helps nail polish dry faster than usual and helps lengthen the life of the nail polish on your nails for about 3-4 days more.
Is it True? I do not think it lengthens the life of the nail polish that long, but it does dry up fast and it dries to a shiny and polished finish.
How I use it: I apply 2-3 coats of polish, wait for about 5 minutes then apply 1-2 coats of Seche Vite on top. Wait for about 5 minutes and it will dry completely. I love this product and it is a definite holy grail for me.
Would I purchase this again? Yes I will because this is my second bottle already. Im half way done and about to buy my third one. I recommend Seche Vite compared to Drip Dry by OPI.
So there it is my review of the famous Seche Vite and Drip Dry. Do you guys agree with me with Seche Vite, or do you prefer Drip Dry instead?
