Formula X glitter nail polishes swatches + review

Purchased by Me buttonMorning all! I hope you are having a good week – it’s cold here and raining. I mean, I love spring rain, don’t get me wrong. But when it’s accompanied by cold temps and cold wind, then nah, I wanna pass. Good thing there’s always polish to distract me…speaking of which, I have some Formula X glitter polishes to show you today: Firecracker, Spark, Mind Blowing, Crash, and TNT.

Formula X Firecracker over China Glaze Wanderlust | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Formula X Firecracker over China Glaze Wanderlust macro | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Firecracker, shown over China Glaze Wanderlust, is a clear based polish with tangerine glitters of various sizes. Glitters clumped up over each other. This is 1 coat plus placing and 1 coat of top coat.

Formula X Spark over China Glaze Float On | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Formula X Spark over China Glaze Float On macro | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Spark, shown over China Glaze Float On, is a slightly tinted gold base with holographic gold glitters of various sizes. If you know Float On, you know that it’s neon pink! So the base changed this quite a bit. Application was uneven. This is 1 coat plus top coat.

Formula X Mind Blowing over China Glaze Passion for Petals | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Mind Blowing, shown over China Glaze Passion for Petals, is a clear based polish with butter yellow glitters of various sizes. (Not sure what’s mind blowing about this?) This was base heavy and the glitters clumped up over each other. This is 1 coat plus dabbing plus 1 coat of top coat. 

Formula X Crash over China Glaze Life Preserver | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Crash, shown over China Glaze Life Preserver, is a clear based polish with light blue glitters of various sizes. Again, glitters clumped up over each other. This is 1 coat plus dabbing plus 1 coat of top coat.

Formula X TNT over China Glaze Lemon Fizz | Be Happy And Buy Polish

TNT, shown over China Glaze Lemon Fizz, is a clear based polish with darker blue glitters of various sizes. My notes literally say: blerghhhhhhh, which I take to mean that it was a PITA to apply like the other clear based glitters in this post. 😛 This is 1 coat plus dabbing plus 1 coat of top coat. 

The surprise here to me is Spark, and I really like what it did to Float On. Definitely it is my favorite of these glitters; the application issues of the others really put me off. Though, as ever, I’d love to hear your thoughts so sound off in the comments!
