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.

Sorry for the delay in posting It’s finals week and move out and I am up to my eyeballs in stress! I promise as soon as things settle down I’ll get back to regular posting.
