Mavala Minute Quick Finish Fast Dryer Top Coat Review

I was looking for a new top coat, and thought I’d give Mavala’s Minute Quick Finish Fast Dryer Top Coat a try!

I did not read any reviews about Mavala top coats (and there were several to choose from), and decided to buy this one when I saw in the other day in the shop.

Mavala Minute Quick Finish Fast Dryer Top Coat Review

So what do I like about it?

I love how small it is because fast drying top coats get very gloopy after some time, and it it impossible to use them up, without any special thinning products.

Nails Of The Day: ArtDeco Grey Nail Laquer In #106

I really love this ArtDeco nail polish  which is a beautiful medium grey. I’ve been looking for such shade for some time now so I just had to get it when I saw it the other day. Plus the price is reasonable (€ 7,50).

It gives a great coverage with 2 coats and is pretty shiny but I still used Seche Vite on top which made it look even better.

This is the first ArtDeco nail polish which I’ve tried and I will get more in the future.

Sally Hansen Insta Dri Top Coat Review

Now that I have been using Sally Hansen’s Insta Dri  for quite a long time, I want to share my impression.

I wanted to try a new top coat and decided to choose one from the brand. They actually had a lot of different options, but I’ve chosen this one, since I’ve heard good things about it. And also…I love red.
