I don’t care if it’s a Sunday night and I’m not leaving the house, red lipstick makes me feel better.

My nails and I had a long talk and they decided to no longer be the worst. I rewarded them with a fresh coat of paint :)

Fourth of July nails! I have a special little place in my heart for July 4th as it is not only an awesome holiday, but is also my BIRTHDAYYYY! I decided to go all out and make mini flags on each nail, with a star accent nail. To create the look I used Essie Nail Polish in Butler Please, Milani Nail lacquer One Coat Formula in White On The Spot, and EMORI Magical Nail Art Lacquer in Red.

Fourth of July nails! I have a special little place in my heart for July 4th as it is not only an awesome holiday, but is also my BIRTHDAYYYY! I decided to go all out and make mini flags on each nail, with a star accent nail. To create the look I used Essie Nail Polish in Butler Please, Milani Nail lacquer One Coat Formula in White On The Spot, and EMORI Magical Nail Art Lacquer in Red.

So I have been lusting after the Formula X Foil Look nail polishes since they came out at the quite steep price of $24. I couldn’t justify spending that much on a polish that proclaims “one day wear” smack on the front of the box, no matter how pretty. Luckily, the product was on sale for $12 at my local Sephora and I snatched it in 10 Below. The set includes a base coat and the metallic polish. The base coat is clear and goes on smoothly, drying almost immediately to a matte finish. After you’ve applied your base coat you follow with one coat of the metallic polish, which is super opaque. Don’t be afraid to be a bit heavy handed as the polish can be a bit streaky. The polish dries all the way through in about a minute. The color is gorgeous, but it does highlight any ridges in your nails so BUFF THOSE BABIES GOOD BEFORE APPLYING. Formula X is upfront about the one day wear and I’ve gotten at most two days out of it without it rubbing off near the tips. The good news is it dries so quickly that redoing your nails each day isn’t a ludicrous suggestion.

PROS:
Dries quickly
Reflective foil look
Base coat and polish included
Easy application for really cool results

CONS:
One day wear
Shows ridges in nails
Expensive
