Formula X Alchemy Nail Lacquer

Formula X Alchemy Nail Lacquer ($12.50 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “platinum-infused, mixed metal shimmer.” It’s a dirty, antique gold base with silver, gold, and copper micro-glitter. It almost seemed like sparkle, because the particles seemed even finer than most micro-glitters. Tom Ford Beauty Silver Smoke (LE, $32.00) has a similar base color, but it isn’t glittery–it’s more metallic, so it’s not what I would consider a worthy dupe. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
