Hello my lovelies,
I recently heard on the grapevine that Formula X nail polishes were now in TK Maxx stores- YAY! I headed straight down to my local store to see if the rumors were true and to my amazement they had a small selection of Formula X. I only picked one up as I have never tried any of their nail polishes before even though I have read some amazing reviews. Obviously they are an american brand which makes it tricky to get hold of here in the UK so I was incredibly happy that I could try one out.
I thought that they would be expensive considering they are a big brand in the US but they are being sold for £2.99, yes you heard me right! As you know with TK Maxx most of their stock differs from store to store which is a little rubbish, but I looked on their website and although they are not selling individual nail polishes, they are stocking the Formula X gift sets so I would head down to your local store to see what you can find!
The shade I picked up was ‘Tornado’ which is a dark olive green colour almost verging on grey. I thought this would be a perfect shade to try out due to the colder months here in the UK and I don’t have anything like this in my collection. The other colours they had in stock were quite bright and I didn’t think it was appropriate for this time of year.
The bottle its self is simple but I like it. I like the white top although I don’t think it will stay white for very long – I am a little clumsy with nail polish! You take the white top off and there is a circular top which unscrews the nail polish and applicator. I was a little worried how I was going to paint my nails with the huge top of the bottle! The top inside is a lot smaller and easier to work with – I promise!
It is quite a thick consistency but I quite like that as it was fairly opaque on the first application, so this may be worth noting if you prefer a thinner consistency. I applied two coats like I always do, I wanted to make a fair comparison to other nail polishes in my collection. I then applied, as always my Seche Vite top coat. It left me with a beautiful finish to my nails and I absolutely love the colour. I haven’t seen anything like this before and I will be wearing it quite often now! It is opaque which I am extremely impressed by, but I did read a lot of reviews that said how good they were but with a novice like me it’s nice to try it out for myself.
I have had the nail polish on for around 4 days now with little chipping. I am so happy that I picked this up and it certainly didn’t disappoint! I will be going down to my local TK Maxx store very soon to pick up some more because I just love the formulation of this and would highly recommend!
If you have tried the Formula X nail polishes let me know what your favorite shades are as I am most definitely on the hunt for more!
