The first step of the three is a nail cleanser. It feels like water and dries almost the second you put it on. It doesn't have a very strong smell either which is always a bonus.
The second step is your typical base coat. I let this dry for a minute before I put on the color polish and like the step before it, it dried pretty quickly.
Next you want to apply the actual color you will be using. I used Incandescent which is a bright peach. I have to say that Sephora is really killing it with their color range. The polish Center of My Universe has to be one of my all time favorite colors ever. After applying the color I applied one coat of top coat but with the glitters I use two to three because they seem to just eat it up.
I'd definitely recommend the Sephora Formula X system if you're not a salon girl like me or if you're looking to save a bit of money. The three step system will run you around $32 dollars plus you get to pick a free polish to go with it. Considering they'll last you a while I'd say it's a pretty good deal and one worth getting. Do you own the Sephora Formula X system or colors?
