Formula X Spectrum Nail Lacquer ($12.50 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “red + gold micro-glitter in sheer crimson.” It’s a cool-toned, medium pinky-red with flecks of gold sparkle. It was mostly opaque after two coats, and the consistency was a little thin but not enough to impact the application negatively. This has gold sparkle, as compared to the cooler-toned, pinky-white sparkle of Solar Flare, but they were still very close. Zoya Bobbi (P, $9.00) is more shimmery, more muted. L’Oreal The Queen’s Might (LE) is redder, warmer. China Glaze 108 Degrees (LE, $7.50) is darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.
