Seche Magnifique from Live Love Polish

**press sample**

Good evening everyone! How are you all doing? Things are good here, but I'm already feeling the holiday craziness! I'll probably be taking a bit of a break from the blog this month, but I'll still be posting on Instagram, be sure to follow me there!

Tonight I have a swatch for you. I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by Laura with Live Love Polish asking if I would like to review a nail color from Seche. This is my first Seche color so I was really excited to try it out. 

This is Seche Magnifique

3 coats with no topcoat. 

3 coats with 1 coat of Seche Vite topcoat. 

First off let me say that I smudged my pinkie when I applied the topcoat, sorry about that. Live Love Polish provided me with a bottle of SecheVite as well. It was the first topcoat that I tried when I first really got into nail polish and nail art. I love how quickly it dries and that it doesn't smudge. (as long as you "float" it on the nail) It does have a tendency to shrink after you've had it for a while. You can remedy this with a few drops of Seche Restore thinner, I think it may have something to do with the fact that it gets kind of goopy over time. But for those just starting out with nails Seche Vite is a great topcoat to try. 

So first let me tell you about Live Love Polish. It is a new online store that gets polish directly from the brands, so you don't have to worry about counterfeits! It might seem strange to some but that's actually a big concern for me! They carry brands like Seche, China Glaze, NCLA, and others. They say their shipping is fast, I haven't ordered from them yet, but I can say that my interactions with them so far have been super fast, professional, and friendly. 

Now, on to the polish! I would describe Magnifique as a bright fuchsia with a bit of blue shimmer. Overall this is a lovely polish. It has the typical formula issues for polishes with this finish, somewhat tricky to work with, thin, uneven, and a little streaky at first. But it evens out nicely with topcoat. This is one I will reach for again in the future.  

If you'd like to buy this polish from Live Love Polish you can buy it here. I'm definitely going to be shopping there very soon!

Thank you all for reading!
