I avoided Sephora for a very long time because I feared these. I feared I would see them in person, and would need all of them. My fears were confirmed 2 weeks ago when I went in there and had to pick my jaw up off the floor again. The snag with these is the price. The ones with cool cool finishes are $12.50.
I told myself I'd get 3 tops, and it was impossible. I loved so many so much, I pretty much threw in the towel. I settled on one. This isn't because I only liked one but I it was such an overwhelming experience of amazing nail polish I couldn't deal #firstworldproblems. I couldn't decide between multiple colors, so I put them back, and picked up the one I 100% knew I wanted. Can someone relate to this?
Color: This is one of those polishes that is just too pretty for my camera. This photo could not capture how amazing this polish is. This is a lit-from-within, beautiful, glowing, sun-kissed, and rich purple. I love it. This polish part of the Liquid Crystals line of Sephora X.
Formula: Good formula and easy to apply. I used 3 coats.
Price: $12.50 at Sephora. I loathe this price. I'd feel better if they were $10. I feel like I could justify buying more at $10 than $12.50. $12.50 is a stretch for my budget. Le sad.
Overall: This is stunningly beautiful polish. I think what stands out to me is this is a glass-fleck polish, a finish we haven't really seen much lately. We've been so glitter-frenzied in indie world (nothing wrong with that) that shimmers,glass flecks, foils, and etc. have been put on the back burner. I rarely see any notable ones in mainstream brands lately. Sephora X has reignited my love for this finish, and I hope we can see it in more affordable brands this year done this nicely!
