Winnings & Small Haul

I got a couple giveaway wins this week and snagged an amazing deal from Sally's yesterday.

Lawless Lacquer  held a Zoya giveaway sponsored by Verve Salon in Pittsburgh, and I won Natty and Toni. Natty has been on my wishlist, and Toni is a gorgeous shade! The only reason I hadn't added it on my wishlist is because I have lots of vampy reds/purples and don't wear them very often.

Then, from Mandy's Polish, I won prize #1 of her Birthday Giveaway. The prize included a set of four pots of glitter, OPI Spiderman mini's, Nabi Magnetic Polish Lilac (my first magnetic polish!), Essie Shine of the Times, Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor, Wet n Wild Gray's Anatomy, and Color Club Worth The Risque. 

I stopped at Sally's to get some top coat and see if they had the new Bits N Pieces collection out yet (which they didn't), and I saw they had the Boho Chrome collection on clearance. I wasn't able to get this collection when they came out, and really wanted them, so I was sooo excited to see them marked down. They were only 2.69 each, plus I used my 15% off coupon! What a steal. The only one that was missing was the purple one, and from what I see, it wasn't really a duochrome anyways, just more like a metallic. I also got Posche Top Coat and I haven't ever used it before, so I am anticipating seeing how it matches up to Seche Vite.

Another bit of exciting news...I finally got a daylight light bulb! lol. I thought what I had was a daylight kind, but it wasn't. So, the quality of my pics will be good up a couple notches. I am just sad that I did some really pretty nail art for upcoming challenges over the weekend, so the pics are not very good. Oh well.

Anyways, I want to hear your thoughts on Seche Vite vs. Poshe? I have always been a faithful SV user, but I have heard lots of good things about Posche, too. I'm just wondering if it dries as fast and glossy as SV.  Let me know your thoughts or what you use as a top coat!

  1. I have always used Seche, last summer I switched to Poshe and had bubbling, my nails never seemed to dry and I had dents galore and in the end having only used a quarter of the bottle I couldn't stand it any longer and ordered seche and haven't strayed since

    1. I just used it for the first time. Had lots of bubbles and it smeared my polish more than SV. It's not looking too good!! lol.

  2. Never tried Poshe, and SV is still my overall favorite but some super super close runner ups (no shrinking but just a smidge longer drying time) are Cult Nails Wicked Fast and Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat - try them!

    1. I've heard lots of good things about Cult Nails Wicked Fast. That will probably be the next one I try if Poshe doesn't work out.

  3. I've actually had good results with Poshe! I stopped using SV a while ago, it bothered me that it's not 3-free, and I didn't like having to add so much thinner halfway through each bottle. Now I switch between Poshe, Wicked Fast, and Revlon Quick-Dry.

    1. I have only used it a couple times so far...it seems alright, but I have to get used to the consistency. I try to use as much as I do with SV, but that is too much with Poshe!
