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.
