Formula X Spectrum is a slightly cool-toned, dark fuchsia with a pearl finish. It is a permanent nail lacquer that retails for $12.50 and contains 0.4 oz.
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.
The lustrous, plasma sparkle of this unique lacquer comes in an array of shades—from cool hues like deep royal blue and olive green to warm shades of strawberry pink and tangerine. Comprised of crushed micro-crystalline and vibrant mica, the buildable formula intensifies with each coat and is long-lasting.
