Seche Opulent Nail Lacquer
Seche Opulent Nail Lacquer

True One-Coat Color from Seche

Seche Opulent Nail Lacquer ($8.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep fuchsia creme.” It’s a vibrant fuchsia-red with a cream finish. NARS Anardana is brighter, warmer. MAC Toco Toucan is bluer-toned. China Glaze 108 Degrees has shimmer. Zoya Dana is a smidgen lighter.

Seche is set to launch 33 shades of their new Fast Dry One Coat nail colors at Ulta this month (they might already be in stores, but I didn’t see it online yet).  These shades are supposed to deliver full color opacity in just one coat and dry quickly and down to a naturally shiny finish.  When I read that, I was like, “Oh, boy!” because that is a tall order and a whole lot of promises

Opulent carries out those promises rather well.  In one coat, there’s very nearly opaque color coverage; only at certain angles and under certain lighting conditions is a shadow of visible nail line apparent.  It dries down faster than the average polish, and it does dry down to a very shiny finish.  I tested Opulent for wear, and it wore seven days without chipping and had minor tip wear for me (with and without a base/top coat).  The consistency was a little thick but not goopy, just on the thicker side.

    Does it contain toluene?

  2. I’ve never particularly understood the drive towards one coat nail enamel any more than I understand painting a wall with a single coat of paint. If you want quality, why bust your chops over doing it right. That said, this looks like it would be an amazing enamel with 2 coats!

      Agreed. If you have time to do your nails, you have time for two coats. I don’t like the way one coat looks on the nail, anyway. It looks too thin even with opaque color coverage.

  3. Patience? What is that?

    This would be great for me :-)

  4. Reminds me of OCC’s Pretty Boy in polish form!

  5. Great colour, just doesn’t look true to what it looks like in the bottle.

    I’m interested in seeing some other shades, although this one looks promising (I just would never wear this particular shade).

  7. Katy

    I’m not wild about the way this looks at one coat. Even with true one-coaters, I prefer two coats. It just looks better and more polished.

    What was the dry time like? Does it perform like Seche Vite?

  9. I hope they have a lot of bright, fun colors–this sounds like it will be a joy to use!

    Ohhhhh boy, I am excited for these!

  11. Wow, sounds like a great formula!
