NOTD - Seche Nail Lacquer in Mémoire

Seche_Memoire_swatches

After stating Seche Vite was in fact my favourite Top Coat I wondered how good the colour nail polish range would be. Then I remembered I had actually received a Seche nail polish in a past Glossybox and hadn't tried it out - a sure sign of too many nail polishes. 

Seche Nail Lacquers claim to be fast drying much like Seche Vite, perfectly opaque in one coat and chip resistant. Pretty good hey!

Memoire is described as a lusciously creamy mauve polish though I would describe it as more of a deep dusky rose shade which can appear quite mauve pink in daylight and pink brown in artificial low light. Much like Seche Vite the consistensy is quite thick so care is needed to not flood the nail bed with nail polish but this is a wonderfully opaque polishes that really can be left at just one coat if in a rush. 

Priced at £7.32 from Amazon here or eBay for £6.18 here.

Also for the first time in months I decided to skip using my Essie Ridge Filler base coat (my nails are pretty ridged from wearing nail polish continuously) to see how good this polish actually is and to my surprise with 2 coats it smoothed over pretty much all the ridges in my nails. Also this was pretty fast drying! 

For Autumn, Memoire is a lovely muted pink shade that works well against pale skin tones however I don't think I'd wear it any other time than autumn and possibly in to winter.

As higher end nail polishes go this really cannot be faulted (well maybe on how thick it is) and ticks all the boxes when it comes to opacity, drying time, finish and how long the manicure will last (around the 4 day mark). So if you do go for higher end polishes this is a range worth checking out. 

Personally I would suggest if there is one shade you love to wear on your nails - a classic red, a simple nude shade etc. Then that would be the shade to get from the Seche range as the one coat coverage and fast drying time is excellent plus the glossy finish and chip resistancy is spot on. 

A pretty good nail polish range here! 

Fee xo.
