Giant sized seche vite!!!!!!

I have this inherent need to hoard things that I use regularly.  Like shampoo, qtips, sandwich baggies for my lunch…..  these are all things that I use everyday.  I like to have good inventory on hand because whenever I get low on one of them it seriously stresses me out!  Seche vite topcoat falls into that category too.  So I recently made a smart purchase that will ensure me a steady supply of my holy grail topcoat.  Check out my gigantic salon-sized bottle of seche vite!!

seche box

I found this item on amazon and it was around $15 with shipping included.  It comes with a standard-size bottle of seche that contains the normal 1/2 ounce.  It also comes with a ginormous 4 ounce re-fill bottle and a funnel.   Because it has 4 and 1/2 oz it’s basically like buying 9 bottles of seche at once.  And for $15USD…. not bad at all!!!!!!!!  Here’s the contents of the box…

Instead of using the new little bottle of seche that came in the set, I decided to fill my old empty bottle.  Hoarding tendencies forced me to keep the new bottle for later.  🙂  When re-filling your seche you’re supposed to use the funnel that came with the set.  There were no instructions to indicate this, but it was a good assumption I think.    The funnel has a little line etched in it, so I figured that’s where I’m supposed to snip off the tip with scissors.  Well, that didn’t work, as you can see below.  The seche would not flow through!  I guess the formula is thick, so you’d need a bigger hole.  So I snipped it a little lower- still no luck.  I did this 3 or 4 times til the funnel was a blunt nub.  It was pointless!  The most that I got out of it was the one drip as seen in my pic.  LOL!  I ended up throwing away my funnel thing, and just poured the seche directly into the smaller bottle, which worked fine.  salon sized seche

Here’s the amazon listing if you are interested in buying a mammoth sized bottle of your own.   When I bought it a few weeks ago it was  $14.95 and free shipping, but now it looks like it’s $13.95 plus $5 shipping… but if you poke around maybe you can find a better deal online?  If you happen to invest in a salon-sized kit like this I’d also recommend some Seche Restore thinner too, as seche tends to thicken up over time.  I hated spending money on my Restore when I initially bought it…. it was the principle of it.  Like why should I have to buy a topcoat AND a thinner to go along with it??  But I’ve had the bottle for about a year now and it proved to be a good investment.  I have freshened up me and my mom’s seche bottles, as well as used it as a thinner for our goopy old bottles of lacquer.  I still have about a third of the bottle left which isn’t bad considering it serves two of us.

 So are you jealous of me and my ginormous seche?  Or do you have another fave topcoat that you use?

  1. Woah, there’s no messing about with that bottle! I love that you shared this because so many people adore Seche but complain about when it goes thick. Money wise I think this makes much more sense and the big bottle probably wont gloop up because it’s covered most of the time. A solution for Seche lovers for sure

    • Yeah I bet you’re right- the big bottle shouldn’t gloop up since it will be closed. I’m wondering if I may not even need Restore for this. If my little bottle gets too thick then I can just add more from my big bottle to fix it 🙂

  2. I don’t know what the plastic top was for either! I did exactly what you did. It obviously would work better if the giant bottle was plastic instead of glass. Glad I’m not crazy by myself!

  3. I’m so glad you posted about this! I want to buy a large bottle of Dazzly Dry top coat because while expensive, it will work our cheaper in the end. But, I was worried about the fact that pouring a fast drying top coat might not work – so I’m glad it worked for you, I’ll give it a go!

  4. I’ll have to admit I have never ever tried seche vite, despite all the love I see it receiving from fellow nail artists! Simple reason: It’s not available anywhere here… I’ll have to check if amazon ships to my place, thanks for sharing the link!

    I also had no idea topcoats came in such huge bottles, at first I was like “how is the tiny brush going to reach the bottom of that bottle? Oh… Ohh! Haha.” Definitely a great idea and investment, seeing the amount of topcoat I use!

  5. Woah this is a large one. Are’nt you affraid it will thinken? I used to use seche but each time i got to halfway the bottle it got soo thick. Since last year I switched to SH insta dry. This is a very good seche replacement.

  6. I didn’t even know you could get a bottle that big! I’m currently out of Seche and I’ve run through my nail budget for the month so I’ve been using NYC Quick Dry Grand Central Station. It’s not as self leveling as SV but it dries fast and it gets the job done. For $1.70 something I can’t really complain!

  7. Oh my goodness, that is HUGE. At first I thought there would just be like a 6 inch long brush for the gigantic bottle, but this makes much more sense XD

  8. I’ve gone through 3 of these professional giant sized bottles. lol I also bought the giant bottle of Seche Restore to match so that I never have to deal with thick and goopy Seche. I don’t think I will ever find a better fast drying top coat. I do like to try different top coats and I like them, but nothing is as good as Seche for my nails.
