I think when people hear “Seche” they automatically think Seche Vite Top Coat. At some point, most nail fanatics have owned a bottle. Some (like me) have owned bottle after bottle and invested in even the giant refill bottles. It’s a fairly well known product. Now, from the makers of Seche Vite we have Seche Premier Colour
Seche Premier Colour is designed to provide long lasting color and shine with a 3 step lacquer system. Step 1 is the base which is an advanced formula that contains adhesives to secure lacquer to the nail for a longer lasting finish. Step 2 is the lacquer (which I’m about to show you) and Step 3 is the sealant, which is a top coat that shines and delivers a flawless finish.
I did test these on my non swatching hand, and the one I tested lasted 6 days before I saw tip wear. That’s pretty good for a manicure of mine so I was happy with that. The system is similar to the hybrid gel polishes that have become fairly popular in the last year or so. Although nothing I have specifically mentions gel or hybrid gel or any of that lingo, the system set up is similar. You don’t need a lamp or anything for curing, but it says the 3 step system is designed to fuse with natural light to extend wear and longevity. The top coat is in a opaque bottle which is common for this type of system.
There are 24 shades total in the launch of Seche Premier Colour, and I have 10 to show you. Let’s take a look
Refined is a classic red and has a jelly like formula. I used 2 coats and top coat for these photos.
Calla Lily is a bright white creme. I used 2 coats and top coat for these photos.
Alter Ego is a rich black creme. I used 2 coats and top coat for these photos.
Insightful is a bright orange leaning red creme. I used 2 coats and top coat for these photos.
Intrepid is my favorite of the 10. This is a bright magenta base with intense blue shimmer. This shade did dry down to a satin finish and I had to work quickly with it because it dried faster than the other 9. I used 2 coats and top coat for these photos.
Ambitious is a royal blue jelly. I used 3 thin coats for these photos and there is still some visible nail line.
Siren is a soft pink crelly like formula. I used 3 thin coats for more opacity, but if you want a softer, natural look – 2 coats will work fine, but you will have some visible nail line.
Subtle is a pinkish lavender creme. I used 2 coats and top coat for these photos.
Gifted is a pinkish red leaning coral creme. I used 2 coats and top coat for these photos.
Jubilant is a vibrant baby blue creme. I used 2 coats and top coat for these photos.
Seche Premier Colour Nail Lacquers Overview
Overall I liked this line. I didn’t have any application issues and found them easy to use. The only thing I think I should really mention is to make sure your nail color is dry before doing the top coat. The brush was stiffer for me and would drag the nail color if it wasn’t dry enough. I find this to be fairly common with all of the systems like this one that I’ve tried, so it wasn’t completely surprising for me. The top coat is a thinner consistency than most top coats but still gives a very glossy, high shine finish. The top coat also isn’t like Seche Vite, it does have a longer dry time and I wouldn’t consider it a fast dry top coat. I did use the base coat and top coat provided for the Seche Premier Colour line for all of these photos.
