Ok, so see this bottle of Milani glitter nail polish? It’s dead. Well…maybe it’s just pinin’ for the fjords.
No, this bottle of nail polish is not just merely dead, it has ceased to be.
It has gone to meet its maker! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! Its glittery processes are now history! It has kicked the bucket, shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain, and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible! THIS IS AN EX NAIL POLISH. But wait, what’s this…
Enter, stage left:
Seche Restore is a nail polish thinner that’s made especially to work with the quick dry top coat, Seche Vite. The awesome thing about this stuff, however, is that it works brilliantly to thin out regular nail polishes that are past their prime. Seche Restore comes with a glass pipette that is separate from the bottle, since the cap needs to stay extra tight so the chemicals don’t evaporate. That’s the only slightly odd thing about this product for me, but I don’t mind it, because:
*choir of angels sings* Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Just add a few drops, or a dropper, or however much your bottle needs to get to the consistency it needs to be to apply nicely again. Close it up tight and roll the bottle between your hands and then check the consistency until you get it just right. Voila! Amazing!
Just a note…Seche Restore does contain tolulene, so if remaining 3-free or 4-free or 5-free with your nail products is a big deal to you, then you’ll want to steer clear of this polish thinner. Then again, Seche Vite does contain tolulene also. I had tried to go all 3-free until I realized my nails do just terribly without my Nailtiques strengthener, so I am back off that train until I find a replacement (Citra did not work for me, so I’m open to suggestions).
I did this mani with this glitter polish, though I took it off a day later. I didn’t do the neatest job, but see that cup of coffee there? I think I’d had about 4 of them. 😉
