Need for Speed
My favorite finish here were the chromes….! These produced the best opaque finish with a single application and had a really beautiful liquid metal finish. Some of the creams were disappointing as even after a few layers color was still a bit transulcent and ended up chipping rather quickly as well. The confetti top coats were excellent although a bit repetitive as each had the same style designs (small and large pieces of confetti) just in a different color so they kinda ran together and looked very similar to each other!
Most of the shades I was happy with although some of the creams had a duller finish so a glossy top coat was needed. This is especially true for Haphazard which is such a rich purple in the bottle but applies with a translucent finish after three layers and lacks any shine at all. The formula is a bit inconsistent from shade to shade but about 90% of the collection performed excellent! I just ran across a shade or two that was lacking in most cases it was a cream finish color. But a shade or two would suddenly surprise me like Flashy that only needed a single application for full coverage and a vibrant color pay off….! So it does vary from shade to shade but you might run across three or four shades that are lacking but a majority of the colors were great.
On a whole the Formula X for Sephora the Twenty Two is a WIDE selection of shades for the price! You’re only paying $2.50 per a bottle here! The variety along is worth the price of admission and the set does make an excellent gift. I think it could prove a thrilling set for nail polish fans due to the sheer volume of product here with the wide variety of shades and finishes it just makes for a fun experience!
The set is available now at Sephora and Sephora.com for $55.
