My last review about Sephora’s nail polish brand, Formula X, was a rant and a rave. I love the metallic red Fiery and will cherish it but I had mixed feelings about Wunderkind (navy) since there was no specialness to it. My latest Formula X polish though has me enthralled. It’s the limited edition A Little Sexy and it’s more than a little, it’s a lot.
I get compliments on my nails and the polishes I wear all the time so I’m used to that (and truly appreciate it) but with A Little Sexy everyone and their mother was complimenting me. No matter where I was people commented about this polish. The stock picture from Sephora shows this as a lilac but I found it to be a light shimmering denim blue that sometimes looked more periwinkle depending on the top I was wearing.
This polish is part of a collection of 5 called The Cut – Spring 2014. It’s described as “pearl light periwinkle”. I found on me that it leaned more of a blue periwinkle than a purple. The second best part, after the stunning color, is that it lasted one solid week on me and probably would have lasted longer if I didn’t have another manicure appointment.
While it’s not a holographic polish it has the subtle shimmer that some do. It’s not frosty or glittery, it’s just luminous. It applied beautifully from the first coat and the second coat filled it out to perfection. I think this could be my favorite polish for this spring and summer.
Showing polishes like this makes me want to take a photography class so I could honor the specialness of it. Instead you’ll have to take my word and buy it before it’s gone! — Marcia
