Hello all! :-) Apologies for abandoning this section of the blog again. A few months back I stumbled across a nail store that I'd been passing without noticing. It's one of those wholesale professional supply stores, it has everything! I'm so happy I remembered to pop in when passing by this time. I picked up some things I needed and a few "new trys" as recommended by the SA. Three of these products have now become holy grails.

Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat I've heard about this top coat for ages but never branched out to try it as I've been so in love with my Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat. The first time I used it I was too heavy handed but my second attempt came out fabulous. It's quick drying and leaves your manicure super shiny which is great as my manicure normally lasts 2 weeks. It's definitely comparable to my Sally Hansen Mega Shine. The Seche Vite is a little bit thicker in consistency to the Sally Hansen but overall they pretty much do the same thing. 

Nail Tek Ridge Filling Nail Strengthen Base Coat Bomb.com! I always call ridge filler acrylic in a bottle because to me, it gives that appearance of smooth, thick nails.

Prolana Nail Optimizer This is one of the best nail hardeners I've used. My favourite was the Salon Pro brand which had a gel consistency. I haven't been able to find it anywhere so I assume it's been discontinued. :-(

Daisy Nail Polish Picked up this natural gel pink colour as a base when I do my nail designs.
