This has to be one of my favourite Fall polish releases! I tend to hate Fall for nail polish shades because I cannot stand vampy colours. I know that burgundy, grey, dark green and almost black LOOK incredibly chic, but they just don't make me feel happy. Where is the holo? The glitter? The shimmer?! Formula X's September ColorCurator Collection is by Blair Eadie, fashion blogger of Atlantic Pacific and while she has one shade that is dark and vampy, the other two feel more like spring which made me breathe a sigh of relief!
My husband referred to this manicure as somewhat boring and I guess considering the other things I have done, this tiny French-tipped manicure does seem somewhat uninspired, but it is actually something I have wanted to try! Specifically, light grey with either neon or dark tiny French tips! For my base, I used two coats of Formula X - Pacific Haze*, a soft pale grey creme, and then slowly using just one side of my brush, painted little French tips with Formula X - Taken by Storm*, a dark midnight blue creme.
I find using the Formula X system of nail cleanser, base and top coat works best with these polishes so once the tips were fairly dry, I sealed everything in using the Formula X Top Coat.
I have one more shade to share with you (my favourite one!) in another design that *hopefully* is more exciting though I am really liking this French tip trend that has recently come back!
