Last winter I tried out Formula X polishes for the first time with 22 mini polishes, several of which I have since finished (there were some really pretty shades!) However, this winter I was able to add my first full-sized Formula X to my collection, the absolutely stunning Formula X in Alchemy II*.
Formula X in Alchemy II comes in a rose-gold capped bottle and is an intense, micro-glitter, metallic, rose gold shade. This polish is actually infused with ultra-fine particles of pure platinum! I found it very interesting because it feel like there is very little “base” and mostly just sparkle. The end result is a fast drying polish with a smooth finish and very unique look.
Inside the rosy-bronze base of Formula X in Alchemy II there are all kinds of colorful flecks including yellow, blue and purple. It’s so unique and has amazing depth to it. I used 2 coats for an opaque finish. I was also impressed by how easily this polish removed compared to most glitter. I wore it without a top coat and it lasted about 3 days before major chipping.
Honestly, I think Formula X in Alchemy II is a stunning, gorgeous, polish you should absolutely pick up this holiday season. It’s currently sold out online but likely available in store (and hopefully will come back in stock!) This is one of the most unique shades I own, and the application is flawless. I immediately wore this polish after applying it and it will definitely be back on my nails again soon!
