Formula X for Sephora - Glitter Rocket

Formula X for Sephora Glitter Rocket is a beautiful lavender textured polish packed with gold shimmer. This is a perfect color choice if you are looking for a Pantone Radiant Orchid hued polish. The formula is pretty good, the Formula X textured polishes I’ve tried are fairly thick, but dry quickly.  I used two coats of Gelous and one coat of Poshe fast dry topcoat.



What I didn’t care for about this polish, is how quickly it chipped. It was less than 24 hours before I had chips on 8 out of 10 nails. I used the foil removal method  and still had some stubborn glitter sticking to my nails. Aside from the not so great wear time and removal, I am happy to have this unique shade in my polish collection! What are your favorite polishes at the moment?

 Below are my Formula X posts incase you missed anything!

Riotous (berry)

Fahrenheit (vampy deep red)

Brazen (medium pink creme)

Danger Zone (neon orange)

Jolt (neon pink with blue shift)

Wunderkind (navy blue)

    You have the official ‘Spring’ colored nails!

    • Amber

      haha! Yes, I do! I like brights more than pastels, but this has enough bling for me!

  • Cosmetic Sanctuary

    Stunning color! Too bad abotu the chipping

    • Amber

      Thank you!! :)

  • Nidia Doherty

    Lovely color - reminds me of one of the Zoya Pixie Dusts - maybe you’d have better luck with one of those? I can’t keep polish on very long anyway, so I never notice if a polish chips right away.

    • Amber

      I’m the same way! Love to change everyday, unless I have gel polish on.

  • Anastasia

    Love love love this color, but then again, I love all purples :) You have beautiful nails!

    • Amber

      Thanks Anastasia! My nails have been in a rough patch lately I feel like. Super dry and peely for some reason. I love purples too!

  • BeautyJudy

    Oh I like this color. Bummer about the chipping. I love that swatch photo!

    • Amber

      Thanks Judy!!

  • Phyrra

    Too bad that it chips so fast :(

    • Amber

      Good thing I change so often! :)

  • Miranda Mendoza

    Ack I can’t stand fast chipping. I haven’t tried any of the Sephora X polishes yet, I was a big fan of the OPI ones.

    • Amber

      I actually like the X polishes better than the OPI. I do think they last longer (not the case with the textures tho haha!)

  • Laura

    That is so beautiful. Sucks it chips

  • Cosmetics Aficionado

    • Amber

      I love it! :)

  • myCosmeticBag

    maybe a little too shimmery for me

    • Amber

      What are your favorites?

  • EBBlogAshley

    Love the look of it but I didn’t like that it chipped on you and proved to be difficult to remove… =/

    • Amber

      Honestly, I change my polish often anyways so it wasn’t a deal breaker lol!

  • jennie shaw

    This post broke my heart, Amber. BROKE MY HEART. Why? Because that purple is to-freaking-die and I was already trying to figure out when I’d be able to hit up a Sephora this week but then…chipping on 8 out of 10 nails in less than 24-hours?!? For shame, Sephora. FOR SHAME. Ah well, guess I’ll be leaving this one. *sobs* ;)

    • Amber

      Jennie, don’t let that sway you. My nails always chip faster than the average person. (Why must I be a freak?!) The color is unique and I really still do like the polish!! :)

  • Sheila Arkee

    Such a pretty color! I’ve yet to try a Formula X polish!

  • Bailey

    It’s a beautiful beautiful polish!! A shame it chipped so quickly, but honestly all of my manis chip before the end of Day 1 so that wouldn’t really have been a shock to me haha!

    aka Bailey

  • Kim Porter

  • kSquaredGlamour
