Formula X Nail has teamed up with TEN of the hottest, most fashion-forward stars in beauty, fashion and fitness to bring you some limited edition, on-trend nail polish shades!
These #ColorCurators are using the shades they choose to give us a little insight into their life and tell their story. January’s collaborator is Aimee Song of Song of Style, a fashion, beauty and interior design blog!
“Why go bare when you can have colour? Each polish is super opaque – in true Formula X fashion.” – Aimee Song
From the press release: Inspired by her love for everyday basics, these new neutrals are the perfect accent to any outfit. Kick off the new year in the ultimate pastel pink that complements all skin tones, start fresh with a subtle pop of versatile mint green, or stay simple yet elegant in an elongating nude.
There are three shades in this set, A Girl’s Best Friend, Mintfluencer and Nude For You. Each polish is 3-free, high shine and longwearing.
A Girl’s Best Friend is a pastel baby pink, very much like this year’s Pantone shade Rose Quartz.
Like all pale shades, I needed two coats for full opacity. But unlike most pale pinks, this wasn’t streaky or hard to get fully opaque. It did thicken up a bit as I was applying, not a deal breaker at all though.
The next shade I tried was Mintfluencer, a yummy mint green that reminded me of mint choco chip ice cream.
You can honestly never go wrong with mint green. I feel like it suits all skintones!
Again, this took two coats for full opacity and didn’t have that thickening effect like the pale pink. The formula levelled out perfectly and dried fairly fast.
Nude For You is a well-balanced neutral beige. Now nudes normally scare me as they tend to give me zombie hands, but I was willing to give this one a chance.
I think it is the perfect midtone, not too light or dark. And this was almost a one coat wonder, too! Out of all three, it was my favourite to apply because it was so creamy and perfect in every way.
If you’re looking for an everyday nude shade, I’d give this one a go!
Each three-polish #ColorCurator collection will be available for one month only and is exclusive to Sephora. Each shade is $16 CAD and quantities are limited, so if you see something you like, get on it!
Guess who is the #ColorCurator for February?! I’ll give you a hint, he was a finalist for the NYX Face Awards last year, does the most hilarious tutorials, and is just gorgeous…
