Seche Nail Lacquer Collage Swatches and Giveaway!

Seche Collage

Did you know that Seche Nail Lacquer has a new glittery top coat out called Collage just in time for the sparkly holiday season? Well now you do!

Collage features medium and small hexagonal holographic glitter, large hexagonal white glitter and holographic bar glitter in a clear base. If you want to get really up close and personal with her, check out my Weekly Macro.

Collage over OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender

Here you can see what the flakes look like pretty well. All the holographic glitter is very holographic. The super large hex white chunks kind of threw me off. I didn’t really see them until I painted my nails and they seem a bit…odd? Because the polish is on the chunky side (but not too thick or sticky) it does have that issue of glittery pieces not going where you may want them. I had to adjust the larger chunks into a more pleasing spot at times. The white hex piece seem so large that they don’t always lay flat depending on where on your nail they are. So that is kind of a pain. I would prefer it without the white chunks.

I did apply two coats here and waited a few minutes in-between so things didn’t get too clumped towards the tips.

    Probably part of a glitter gradient!

  • December 1, 2012

    I normally would try to sandwich that color with one of my OPI sorbets, or Nfu-OH jellies, but as I was writing this, it popped in my head to do a checkerboard design and put the hexagons from the polish at the diamond points for effect…

    Is it also fast-dry like Seche Vite, or did you wait until your first polish was dry?

    I’d wear it in lots of ways! My first thought would be over a black cream, though. It would also make for pretty jelly sandwiches, and would go nicely with pastels.

    I would probably wear it over black cause I just love black and pink together. It’s so pretty and there’s just something about it that is SOO unique. Or this antique gold color I have. That would b way to pretty. If I do win this color (which I more than likely won’t. With my luck.. ) that’s the first way ill try it. Over the gold. That would be absolutely beautiful!

    Oh I just love this! What a unique mix of glitter. I also love how the glitter has a holo look. I would wear this over black! Maybe China Glazes Stone Cold, I love using black and glitter together! Keeping my fingers crossed!

  • December 2, 2012
    Laurianna

    I would wear it over black or a dark color like navy to highlight the contrast between the whie glitter and the dark polish. Another option would be to wear it that way with a jelly painted over it to create a color tint over the white glitter. A softer approach would be to wear it over a dove gray.

  • December 2, 2012

    Hmmm… I would wear it over China Glazes’ Blue Bells Ring, a blue foil. :-)
