Because I could not capture the differences in appearance with these top coats I am going to have to explain it to you. I'll start off by saying I usually always use Seche Vite as my top coat. I am always in a hurry so having something that dries as fast as Seche Vite is an absolute must. I bought Gelous originally because some ladies I know in the polish community stated that it is great for a base coat when using glitter because the glitter won't stick to your nails as much. This is true. So now I use it as a base coat a lot. Last night I decided to use it as a top coat which is what it is intended for. I did one hand with Gelous and one with Seche Vite. The nails with Gelous on it became more dull after application. I then remembered what happened when I used it with GOSH Holographic. It completely dulled the Holographic effect and took some shine away from it. Seche Vite went on and brightened everything up. There was a very noticeable difference to me. I put Gelous on about 5 minutes before I put Seche Vite on and when Seche Vite dried Gelous was still tacky. I think I will stick to using Gelous as a glitter barrier. Seche Vite FTW!
Now onto a quick Holiday mani. I decided I would do some holiday colors up until Christmas. Keep it simple. This mani was done with two mini NOPI polishes that I got recently in a three pack from Marshalls. I used Stuck in The Chimney as a base and Spark My Mistletoe for the glitter. Stuck in the Chimney is a gorgeous shade of red. It made me think of Garnets. Spark My Mistletoe is a lovely glitter polish. It has a slight red tint to it and is full of small red glitter and holo glitter. I used one coat of Stuck in the Chimney and two coats of Spark my Mistletoe.
