Formula X ~ Jolt

Hi there!

It's been a while, but I am finally back to the world of blogging. In the beginning of June I went on a trip to London for a few days and afterwards work kept my quite busy. Meh. But a post of all the pretty things I got while I was there is already in the making, so stay tuned for that! Today I want to show you what I wore on those 5 days in London. Since the weather was perfectly sunny by the time we left for our trip, I decided to finally pull out Jolt from the Electrics line by Formula X for Sephora. It is a super bright hot pink with blue-ish glass flecks in it <3 A shade perfect for summer!

Jolt was a bit sheer on the first coat, so I needed three thin coats to get it opaque and even. Like other neon polishes, this dries to a semi-matte finish. The glass flecks remind me a lot of China Glaze, which are well known for their amazing glass fleck finish polishes. I went through my stash to see if I have anything similar to Jolt, since I own quite a few hot pinks (my favorite shade for summer!). Surprisingly, I could not find a close match and from the top of my head I cannot think of a polish that is similar to this one (if you do, let me know!).
I have to admit that Jolt did not hold up for the full duration of my trip. It cracked and chipped on day four, so I removed it and went naked for the remaining days. I did bring nail polish, but after days of sight-seeing I was simply too exhausted to paint my nails in the hotel at night. So guess who was the only person with nekkid nails on a nail polish people meetup at Westfield mall? Yup, this girl. Whoops..., but more on that in a separate post :)

How to you like Jolt? And let me know which is your favorite nail polish this summer!

Thanks for reading, it is good to be back :)
