Here’s a look at a before and after pic using Second Shine Around.

I decided to use Second Shine Around over my manicure and was absolutely amazed at the results!
A girlfriend of mine even commented asking if these were gel polish nails!
That’s how shiny this clear polish refresher makes your nails!  I am highly recommending you pick up a bottle of this to try in between your mani’s.

No, it doesn’t prevent chips, but it definitely refreshes your polish making it look like you just walked out of the salon!
The best part about it, is it’s consistency is relatively thin.  Not nearly as thick as Seche Vite. 🙂

Here’s another note.  If you decide to use your favorite dry fast top coat first.  That’s perfectly okay!  Just apply Second Shine Around on the 2nd day of your manicure to refresh your shine… or whenever your existing manicure is starting to dull.

Here’s a closer look.
