NOTD: Formula X for Sephora in Legend




I picked up this rather lovely polish in the States recently.  I don't know much about Formula X, but their stand of polishes at Sephora was gigantic - literally hundreds of shades.  Being a magpie, I chose one of the Shifter shades, a set of 5 duochrome finish polishes.  This one, Legend, is described as maroon and rainbow metallic, which I'm not entirely convinced captures it.  The base colour flashes from navy to purple to deep red, and it's brought alive by pink, purple, red and blue glass flecks.  It's dazzling, but very, very difficult to describe!

Not only is it dazzling, it also wears like iron.  Three coats gives solid, multi-dimensional colour, and with a slick of Seche Vite I've had this manicure wear for six days straight with no chips at all.  After that, it's chips a plenty, but by then I'm ready for a change anyway.  At $12.50, the Formula X polishes aren't cheap, but they are rather lovely - next time I'm back in the US I'm definitely taking a look at the metallics.

Disclosure: Bought by me in Sephora, where I showed a remarkable amount of restraint by only buying one nail polish.
