NOTD - Julep Sylvia & Formula X Meteoric

Happy Manicure Monday!

Sylvia is my first Julep polish and I have to admit, now I know why everyone loves them and gets the Julep monthly subscription box!  This polish is SO creamy and dries really really shiny.  I didn't think I'd like any polish this much but this blows Essie and OPI away.  I'd love to try more colors and finishes.



I also used Sephora's new nail polish line, Formula X in the color Meteoric which contains black and white different shaped glitter.  It looks like paint splatter. This is one of the Formula X Transformers Top Coats and I really like it.  I'd love to try more but they're $12.50 which is WAY too much for nail polish in my opinion (I got my bottle with a discount but it still was more than I would typically pay for nail polish).  I think I've seen some Sally Hansen polishes that look very similar to this so I'd like to try those.



For this look I applied a Sally Hansen base coat, 2 coats of Julep Sylvia, one coat of Formula X in Meteoric on my ring fingers, and a Sally Hansen quick drying top coat. 



After the purple started to fade at the tips, I added the Formula X to all of my nails to get a few more days out of this look. 


This is the nail look I've had for the past week and a half.  Have you tried any of the other Formula X top coats?  How about the similar Sally Hansen ones??

I hope you enjoyed my mani Monday post and have a great week everyone!

    1. Well Julep is on the expensive side of polishes but I got a crazy deal and that's the only reason I bought it. I probably wouldn't pay full price for them even though I loved it. Thanks for visiting!

  5. "but this blows essie and opi away" with a claim like that i MUST try these now. i've been considering getting into these for a while now, but now i have to. also, that shade of purple is nice and i haven't seen many polishes like it.
