Hey guys! This week is just not ending! I want Saturday to be here already!
Here is another pretty nail polish with a less an impressive formula. It’s another one of the Formula X for Sephora ones. Standout is from the New Neutrals range and is a creamy and pearlescent finish.
Standout is a lovely light nude shade. I wouldn’t call this a baby pink, but it is a very pale warm pink. It’s the perfect manicure colour! I’m surprised I don’t have anything like, its a very dupeable shade.
It’s a cream polish but it has white pearlescent bits in it as well. It’s very noticeable in the bottle but doesn’t really show up on the nail.
It’s creamy and opaque in two coats but again, like Orbit, very streaky. You can see the images below how uneven it looks. It’s a really gorgeous shade and I’ll probably still wear it but it’s a shame.
You can minimize the streakiness by applying a mix thin first layer and thicker second layer but it’s not an ideal consistency. It would have been easier to work with if it was a bit thinner.
Aside from that it does wear well, lasting a week for me. It’s also very glossy.
Packaging wise, it looks stunning and it’s quite heavy. You get 12ml of product for $10.50 (around Rs. 650). It makes much more sense to buy an OPI or Essie which is similar or less price wise and much better quality.
I seem to stuck on a products with bad reviews phase here! But I will be doing a just swatches post to cheer things up soon!
