butter LONDON P.D. Quick Top Coat Review & Comparison

Yesterday, I posted about an amazing deal Coterie had on butter LONDON polishes; 3 bottles plus a bottle of either matte or quick dry top coat for $36! If you are a fan of butter LONDON, you know how awesome that is!

P.D. Quick over Wallis, Seche Vite on Ring Finger for comparison
I chose butter LONDON's P.D. Quick (pretty "darn" quick) top coat as part of my bundle. I have been a long time fan of Seche Vite because it dries a mani in less than a minute, and leave it super glossy. But it is not without it's flaws. The biggest issue Seche Vite has, is a (major, imo) problem with shrinkage. If you aren't careful with your application, Seche will shrink your polish and pull it away from any free edge.

It is preventable, you have to "wrap" the polish around the tip of your nail and be extra careful how you apply the layer of SV. Even then, you might still have some problem areas and have a messed up mani.

P.D. Quick has a lot going for it, here's a breakdown of the pros and cons.

- thin formula, easily coats nail & a little goes a long way
- no shrinkage or tip pull
- big bottle, 0.6ml
- dries quickly, around 2 min.

- pricey, $18 for a bottle (tho there is a box set of base & top coat called "tops & tails" for $25 at Ulta)
- not as shiny as Seche Vite

P.D. Quick is definitely my new favorite top coat and I can't wait to try the flawless base coat!
