Sephora Formula X Monday

Hello readers! I have a few posts that are been kept on the back burner for a few weeks now so I am going to make sure they get published this week. The series of photos that I have this week were edited just a bit smaller than I usually size them., so I apologize for that. 

Today I have a few polishes I picked up from Sephora a few months ago when they first released their new line, Sephora Formula X. I wasn't necessarily looking for a new base-coat or top-coat, so I didn't get any of those. But I was very happy to see such a large range of colors and finishes be released. I think I spent a good 20 minutes just browsing the selection when I first saw them in my local Sephora. And they are all moderately priced at $10 to $12.50 depending on the finish, a little spendy but not too much so, making a nice pick-me-up type polish. 

Sephora Formula X Danger Zone
Two coats
Part of the Electrics
This one looked more coral in the bottle but ended up being a
bright neon pink with pink shimmer.
It was a little on the thick side and dried to a matte finish (not unusual with matte polishes).


Sephora Formula X Galaxy
Two coats
I didn't realize this one was a textured polish until I applied it. But it was a nice surprise, I really like the look of this navy textured polish, the gold shimmer gives it a nice detailing. It's darker and has less gold shimmer than OPI Alacatraz Rocks but they do look similar. 


Sephora Formula X TNT
Layered over Sephora Formula X Galaxy
Yet another finish, this one a clear based topper with cobalt blue glitter in varied sizes. I want to mess around with this one, and see what other bases would compliment the blue glitter. 


Sephora Formula X Kelvin
Two coats
Did I need another orange creme? No, but I could not resist. It looked so tempting in the packaging.
The cremes in the New Classics line were outstanding, two coats for each polish and high shine. 


Sephora Formula X Pyrotechnic
Two coats
Cherry red creme and the creme formula is perfection. 


Sephora Formula X Chaotic
Layered over Sephora Formula X Pyrotechnic
I bought this one to see how it would compare to Enchanted Polish Seven Nation Army. At first glance, it looks very similar, both are black and white glitter in a clear base with holo pigment. But the Enchanted wins over this one for me. Chaotic has larger pieces of glitter and the holo pigment is more subtle. Still, a very pretty topper and if you don't have Seven Nation Army, I would recommend getting this one. 


Sephora Formula X Spark
Three coats
Sparkle galore with this one, with it's gold holo glitter in a light orange jelly base. 
The jelly is more sheer but buildable. 


Sephora Formula X Obessed
Two coats
Oh so vampy, this dark dark wine red jelly is another that has an awesome formula. 


Sephora Formula X Thrilling
Two coats
Ahh! I love this one so. much. I can't explain why the most understated of all of these polishes is my favorite. I love a good neutral and this one applied so smoothly and is just cool enough for my skin tone. 


Sephora Fomula X are released in specifically named lines within the brand, such as New Classics, Electrics, Holograms, etc. These all can be purchased online or at your local Sehora.
