It's not too often I'm lost for words, but just look at that colour.

I've touched very briefly on my love for Formula X nail polish in my June Favourites of this year, after I picked up my first ever shade in New York. Happily, though, I've found a supplier much closer-to-home (in some ways), at Sephora in Dubai, where my parents live. My mum was kind enough to pick up this shade for me before she flew back to England for the summer, and I have to say, my feelings have only been solidified with this one. 

Continuum is the most un-me-like colour maybe ever, to the point where my mum, upon giving it to me, said 'Are you sure I got the right one?' Yes, mum, you did. After seeing Essie Button talk about (and wear) this shade, I was sold. It is the most shiny, vibrant cornflower blue. It looks good with my largely monochromatic wardrobe. I mean, screw it, it looks good with everything. My boss, upon seeing my nails next to my baby-pink wallet, was like 'Damn. That is an amazing nail colour'. And I have to agree.

But it's not just the colour that makes this so special - Formula X nail varnishes really are something else. Pigmentation, application and especially formula are just outstanding. I've worn this on my nails, no top coat, for a week now, with minimal tip wear. I just love the stuff, and have yet to be disappointed by the range. Unlike my beloved Essie, there seems to be a lot less variation in formula with these, and the shades I've tried have been consistently awesome. More excuses to build the collection, eh?

Would you guys pick up Continuum? Have you tried the Formula X range? What're your favourite shades? I'm so interested to pick up more!

Also, for anyone that has spotted my rose gold Kate Spade bow ring - I couldn't resist! It's just too beaut.

  4. I love the colour but is it weird that my favourite thing is the shape of the bottle?
