Formula X for Sephora Legend Swatch

Hello All! Today I want to show you the new Formula X for Sephora Legend. It has been a long time since I've only had one nail polish in a post! Not since last month in my Most Used Polish post. It is certainly a far cry from wearing 18 polish in one manicure! So I can't help but feel that I'm cheating a little here. To make up for it, I have lots of pictures!

My mom very generously brought this back from NYC for me. Thanks mom!

Formula X for Sephora is a new brand that launched this fall and can be found at, um, Sephora. This polish is from the brand's "Shifters" category. Sephora describes the category as "a two-toned metallic lacquer that shimmers with a kaleidoscopic effect."
I like that it is the "crushed microsparkles" that have the color shift, and the base metallic color essentially stays the same.

Legend is described as "maroon and rainbow metallic". I don't know about the maroon part. I feel that in all different lights it appears more of a plum.

This is two coats, but it was almost opaque in one coat. The application was nice and smooth. This is with top coat. Without it, it's not very shiny.
