Formula X for Sephora Nail Polish in Orbit

I’ve had a mad week recovering from a cough but things are slowly getting back to normal. I feel like this month went by in a flash! That aside, here’s another nail polish from the Formula X for Sephora range.

Orbit is a true navy blue and one from the New Classics or cream finish range. It’s on the darker side but a gorgeous staple kind of shade. But I’m not too impressed with the quality, especially at the price.

It’s thick consistency wise and that makes application a bit more tedious. It can go on a bit streaky and mine came with a part of the brush sticking out. It can also apply unevenly so you need two thick coats to get it to look even. On a smaller nail it’s opaque in one coat.

The finish is quite glossy and stays that way for 2-3 days before it loses the shine. The staying power is still good, around a week with no chipping.

It’s  a very dupeable shade which you can find for a lesser price and a better formula, so there’s no point buying this. :/

It’s bulky packaging which I like but it takes up so much space! You get 12ml of product for $10.50 (approx Rs. 650). This is available only at Sephora.

    Love the colour! But that is a lot of money to pay for a below average home brand product.

      I like some of other finishes from Formula X but the cream one just isn’t worth it. :/
