I said in my last post that I picked up one of the Sephora Formula X Nail polishes when I was in France on a trip with my school and I thought that I would give it a quick review along with some photos of the beautiful shade "provocative". The polish is of a medium texture and applies evenly, with three coats needed produce this totally opaque colour, which for a pastel I would say is pretty good. The brush on this nail polish is slightly thinner than I would like but I prefer a very wide applicator as it makes nail painting easier, however this was not too tricky. My only gripe would be the lasting power; I find that polish chips very easily on me, and despite using all types of fancy top and base coats I can never find a way of making it stay on without chipping after a few days, and this may just be the country lifestyle I lead and that I am not that soft on my hands. I had heard things from bloggers who I trust very much that this nail polish stayed on longer than most (for some up to ten days!). While I could never expect such results given my circumstances, I was hoping for five days to a week without serious chipping but alas, within three days I had my first small chip and after five they were bad enough to be removed (and re-painted, I just love this colour!). Overall this colour and formula is beautiful, and although it was not the miracle worker I was expecting, I do like this nail polish and will pick up more next time I am in a Sephora store.
