Sephora Formula X Marine Swatches & Review

Hello readers,
Sephora recently dumped a whole bunch of polishes from their in house Formula X line into the sale section for Canadians. I, being low in will power when it comes to nail polish, snagged some shades I had been eyeing for a while but hadn't been able to convince myself to buy at full price. Today I have one of the shades from the Sea Glass collection to share with you.

Marine is a textured polish with an aqua base and tons of sheer pink an aqua flecks. The texture in this one is really unique. It's much less textured than the Zoya PixieDust line and almost feels soft to the touch. I just can't quite put the finish into words. The formula was easy to work with and I didn't run into any issues. I would recommend waiting a little extra time between coats to avoid any potential dragging (which I do with all textured polishes). This shade took two coats to become opaque and dried to what I'm going to call a crystallized finish - matte but with facets that catch the light. Photos show two coats of Marine in daylight spectrum lighting.

So, I love this. Just look at the shiny flecks in that macro! Originally I only bought this shade, but after trying it out I also bought Tide and Whirlpool from the same collection. You can find Sephora on

Happy polishing,
