NOTD: Seche Nail Lacquer in Mémoire


Seche have launched a new range of nail lacquer, promising high intensity colour and, unsurprisingly, quick dry times.  This is Mémoire, described as a bright mauve cream - I'd probably call it a dusty neutral rose.  It has plenty of brown and pink tones in it, making it a bit of a refreshing change from the brights and glitters I usually wear.

According to the press release, the lacquer is supposed to be opaque in a single coat - I applied two as the first one seemed a little patchy, but if you were in a hurry, one coat would be fine unless anyone was inspecting your nails in close detail.  As a result of the high pigment, the polish is a little on the thick and gloopy side - application can be a little draggy and pool-y as a result if you're not careful with your brush strokes.

The polish dries reasonably quickly, looks glossy even without topcoat, and lasts a good four days before chips start to creep in.  All in all, a pretty intriguing new contender in the nail polish market, and well worth checking out, even if they are a little on the expensive side at £9.95 each.  Find them online at Nails By Mail, and in store at Liberty and Sally Beauty.

    1. Totally agree! They're a really nice change from a pale pink if you're looking for something neutral and work friendly too.
