NOTD: China Glaze First Class Ticket + Seche Vite Mini Review

Hello Beauties, as you remember from my haul post the other day I bought a few polishes from Cherry Culture and I could not wait to paint my nails with them. The first polish I decided to try out was China Glaze's First Class Ticket. If you have seen my most recent nail of the day posts, you will know that I haven't worn a plain dark shade nail polish for a while, so when this arrived in the mail it unquestionably intrigued me.

Interestingly with this First Class Ticket though is that it does have blue iridescent in it, however it is hardly noticeable unless you stare and examine it in good lighting. This was a little upsetting for me because the display photo for the polish emphasised on the blue iridescent. So this was quite a disappointment as I love glitter polishes, but never the less this is a gorgeous polish. 

Like all China Glaze polishes, First Class Ticket is super simple to apply. The consistent is a little on the thicker side which does make it longer to dry but much more opaque. The finished look in the photos only took two coats and I topped it off with Seche Vite Top Coat

I've had a few bad experiences with top coats, where they claim to be fast drying but end up taking almost an hour to completely set or made my nail polish look streaky, fortunately I think I may have found my Holy Grail Top coat in the Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. It's not a secret that many people love this top coat - there have been millions of raves about it on blogs/youtube. 

Seche Vite's product description is absolutely spot on in my opinion. In addition to these fabulous attributes of this top coat, I found that it dries so, so, so, so, so fast. When I used the Seche Vite Top Coat on top of First Class Ticket it completely dried within 10 mins! I painted my nails quite late and I had an early morning the next day, so I jumped straight into bed after 10 mins and successfully no deformed looking nails in the morning!

Seche Vite is without a doubt my absolute favourite top coat ever. It gives your nails the perfect gel-look finish, makes your nail polish last longer and also helps your nails to be stronger. If you haven't tried this top coat before, I certainly recommend you give it a go. I think this top coat has made my nail chipping problem disappear!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. I hope you all are having or will have a marvellous day. Please let me know your opinions on China Glaze Polishes or the Seche Vite Top Coat in a comment below, I would love to hear what you think!

  12. I love the Seche Vite top coat! The only thing is that it dries out rather quickly, but I think it's worth the gamble xx

  13. I love that colour, its such a pretty shade!

    Btw - I have a giveaway on my new blog - feel free to enter:

  14. I still see the navy blue iridescence in the China Glaze polish! Maybe it's just your photos :) I love China Glaze polishes though - I wish I had more! I have tried Seche Vite but to be honest I don't love it as much as my Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. I don't know if it's just my bottle but the Seche Vite has a yellow tint to it? But I agree it does make nails glossy :)

  15. Beautiful blue nail polish! The only experience I have had with China Glaze is its nail strengthening lacquer, but their nail polishes look good. How I hate it when indents are made on the polish when you are waiting for it to dry! 10 minutes is amazing :)

  16. That colour is fantastic so deep and beautiful

  17. The colour is so beautiful!
