Seche Nail Color Clever & Confident Fall 2013 Collection Swatches

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Thursday!! 

  If you have been a long time reader of LTHP, you know that for a long time Seche Vite was my go-to top coat. I have since found other top coats I really enjoy, but Seche Vite is definitely "old faithful" for me. So!! Today I have swatches of the Seche Clever & Confident Fall 2013 collection. Ever since Seche announced that they were going to be doing nail color, I just knew I had to try them. I am so happy that the first Seche shades I got to try were their Fall collection, because as many you guys know I just love Fall colors.

To see close up swatches of these pretties just continue reading ♥. 

 I really don't want to sound like a broken record so let me tell you why I love these polishes. These are not the most unique shades... But here's the deal, they have AMAZING formulas. Every single one of these swatches is just ONE coat of color. Yes, you read that right. All of these swatches are only ONE coat, followed by a top coat of KBShimmer Clearly on top. 
 Polishes like these will be great for many nail art techniques. I have a feeling these would be great for stamping, gradients, marbled and anything freehand. The formulas are thick, but they spread perfectly, smoothly and evenly. The OCD in me really wanted to do a Second coat, but I could not find a good reason to do one as they looked perfectly fine with just one coat of color. 

Seche Silly but Sensible

Silly but Sensible is an amazing shade of Terracotta Creme. This reminds me of Camel- toned leather boots. I had a hard time capturing this shade, it is a bit more brown in person. I usually want to hate shades like this, but I end up loving them on me. This is a classic Fall shade. 

Seche Happy, As Is

Happy, as Is is a classic shade of Raspberry toned creme. This shade has strong Red undertones, which made it tricky for me to capture as well. My camera does not enjoy Berry-tone shades haha.

Seche Clever & Confident

Clever & Confident is a classic Plum creme. 

Seche Vesatile

Versatile is a gagagagorgeous shade of Emerald Green creme with slight Blue undertones. I absolutely adore this shade. 

Seche Wonderfully Witty

Wonderfully Witty is an epically beautiful shade of deep Navy creme. Move over Revlon Royal, mama has a new favorite navy crelly. And yes, this is ONE coat!!! 

Seche Intutition

Intuition is a classic Burgundy shade with a slight shimmer. This is classic Fall-ness in a bottle. 

  So, while the colors are not the most exciting or unique, I can't help but be blown away by the formulations of the colors. I am so impressed with the fact that they were all One coaters for me. Dry time was excellent of course. I can only assume that the wear is great on these, I might have to experiment soon. I am also excited to do some nail art with some of these. I'm really trying to venture off into the land of Freehand nail art and these might just make it easier. My favorite color is definitely the Navy shade, Wonderfully Witty.
 Are any of these speaking to you? If you are a stickler for good formulas, these are SOO for you! 


  1. Wow one coat! Amazing! I have been wanting to try their colors since I too adore their top coat. Going to try them now!

  2. Happy! I NEED that one in my life! Gorgeous swatches, as always. :)

  3. these look like they would be great for nail art. i love a good creme formula, too. thanks for the swatches!

  4. it's always good to have one coats around! I might have to get clever & confident and versatile as I really like those colours!

  5. I like the plum and emerald shades, I may have to check those out.

    Since you mentioned that you've switched from their top coat, can I ask which one(s) you prefer? I really love how thick SV is, esp since it dries so fast. But the shrinkage is KILLING me! I've tried Poshe, and it's OK, but I always have to use 2 or more coats over a texture if I want it smoothed out. I've used KBShimmer's too, and liked it, but thought it was very similar to SV, including the shrinkage. Help?

  6. These are SO gorgeous! Silly but Sensible has to be my favorite f the group but they all look stunning on your nails lady! :)

  7. looks wonderful on your skin tone.

  8. Lovely colors for fall, love your swatches!

  9. Great fall colors!!

  10. I really like this collection - the colors are all lovely and to me read as slightly retro looking. I'm dying to try the Seche colors!

  11. Do you know when these will be available in stores and where?
