Formula X for Sephora Spring 2014 – The Liquid Crystals

spring2014_formulax001

I really like the Liquid Crystals Spring color line for Formula X. The colors have a great sparkle and are so shiny. Two coats provides great coverage and this polish lasts and lasts without chipping or fading. The best thing about this new line, you get all the sparkle of glitter but its easy to remove with nail polish remover. I can’t wait to check out more colors from the Liquid Crystal collection.
