1. I am also on the "what was the first reviewer thinking?" list.
2. I have found another product I know I can never live without.
I recently ordered a lot of older, discontinued (or, as Essie.com states, "no longer available") Essie lacquers from Amazon. Since I knew they were older, I also knew some of them would be thicker than others. My solution: Seche Restore.
The Restore is amazing. I use it every time I do my nails to thin the polish to go on smoother and thinner, as one review suggests. It did awesome thinning out 3 of the older Essie polishes (Blanc, Golden Nuggets, and Garnet).
Here are general steps I used to gauge the amount of Restore to use:
1. Get a newer polish and just twist and pull the brush out of the polish. Watch how many drops of polish fall off within a few seconds. For example, I usually had 2 drop off within 5 seconds with a new, fresh bottle.
2. Compare that "drop time" with the bottle that needs restoring. My Essie Garnet, for example, had 1 drop fall off within 5 seconds.
3. Fill up a WHOLE STOPPER FULL of Restore and drop HALF into the Garnet / older polish.
4. Spin the Garnet between hands (shaking polish bottles introduces air into the polish which will cause bubbly nails, leading to chipping), for about 20-30 seconds, then check the consistency.
5. If it had 2 drops within 5 seconds, I knew I was good to go. If not, I added the other half of the stopper to the polished, and repeat step 4.
That's what I've gathered from reading other reviews and from my own experiences. I hope that helps others that are unsure how to use this wonderful product! Happy manicures to everyone!!
Tips: Try a few drops at a time. You can always add more but you can't take away too much. Its also best not to shake your bottles but to gently roll between the palms of your hands. If you do chose to shake them, wait a while before use since shaking bottles causes airbubbles which makes bubbles show on your nails.
The first bottle was almost empty, had spilled in the box. Lid was on, but loose. I called Amazon and was told it was not returnable, but they would send me another replacement bottle anyway. I received the 2nd one and same thing only nothing left in this bottle. Lid was loose again. I received a email from Amazon, if I didn't return the first one, I would be charged, which I was. It was my fault because I was ill during this time and didn't get it handled in time. Don't know if the seal won't hold enough to prevent spillage with air shipping (pressure) or if the lids were just not tightened well enough to begin with. Still need the product and difficult for me to get out now to get it, but am hesitant to try it for the 3rd time. Just thought I would leave this review in case it is happening often, or so Amazon can take steps to prevent this from happening. Maybe taping the lid on would help?
This is a good product, so didn't want to ding it by giving it a 1 star rating. Gave it 3 stars for that and took off 2 for the spillage happening twice.
This stuff is amazing! The Seche Vite topcoat thickens up after you use about 1/3 of the bottle, and the Restore helps bring it back so you don't waste it. It is different than nail polish thinner in that it RESTORES an ingredient in the topcoat that evaporates every time you open the bottle (hence the name Restore). But the great thing is, you can use it to restore all old polishes! I have brought back some very thick and old ones back to life. I do have plain ol' polish thinner which has worked ok on other polishes but now I use this for everything. Don't use polish thinner on your Seche Vite!
Like anything else, less is more. Start off with just ONE dropper full (or less)...you can always add, but you can't take back. Shake very well and voila! Also, the dropper comes separate. Keep the original cap too - this stuff can evaporate if not shut tightly. Other than that this stuff is rad!
