Matte Black!

Just a quick one today. My nails got so wrecked last week, i was busy and didn't look after them that well so i chopped them all down to just little nubbins!
I'm really loving mattes at the moment, so today i have just plain Matte Black.

This is 3 coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather with 2 coats of Essie's Matte About You topcoat! When i did the first coat of Matte About You some were still a bit shiny, not sure if i did the coat too thick and it did matte properly before it dried but i went over it with a thiner coat after it completely dried and it was fine.

On a side note. Can anyone recommend me a good quick dry top coat? I have been using Sally Hansen's Insta-dri (anti-chip.....apparently) topcoat. I don't mind this, i've been using it for a while now but it's so expensive! Like $12 - $15 at the chemist! Is seche vite as amazing at everyone says it is? I got a miniature bottle of seche vite quick dry a while back and i didn't seem to care for it that much. i didn't think i dried as fast as the Sally Hansen one did, but i was skeptical if the contents were actually true label after it didn't dry that fast. I'm willing to give it a go if it really is that great. Should i be worried about the chemicals too? Being young and all! haha Or is there another brand that you use that is better?
Thanks guys.

Hope you all enjoy your weekends! Three day weekend for most of us Aussies! Whoo hoo! We are off the beach this afternoon, it's going to be 15deg. hope it's not too cold! We are taking the pup down to visit all her litter mates for their one year b'day plus some from other litters will be there too! There is going to be about 15-20 puppies there!
