Formula X #ColorCurators: Ballet Beautiful Edition Nail Polish Collection Swatches + Review


Ballet Beautiful is a huge part of my life {I legit do the Swan Arms Series three times a day}, so when I stumbled upon the Ballet Beautiful / Mary Helen Bowers nail polish collab with Formula X as part of their #ColorCurators series, I literally added all three shades to my basket and clicked checkout in five seconds flat. True story. Ladies, this trio is bomb. The colors are sublime for year-round wear, the formulas are on pointe {see what I did there?}, and the names of each shade? So necessary for helping you to unleash your inner tiny dancer. Peep the prettiness below!


Lilac Fairy is a Soft Lilac Creme. I was preeetty confident that Lilac Fairy would be the standout shade for me from this trio based on bottle alone, and I was so right. Though similar to Ciaté Mini Paint Pot Nail Polish in Double Bubblegum, Lilac Fairy has a dove gray undertone that makes it feel a little more ethereal and ballet-esque. Formula here was fabulush! Creamy, quick to reach opacity, and just so pretty! If you only buy one color from this trio, I vote this one! This is 2 coats.


Ballet Barre is a Charcoal Metallic. There is truly only one way to describe Ballet Barre: Liquid. Metal. For reals though ladies, this color is everythang! It has that smoky, seductive Black Swan vibe to it {hated the movie btw}; while feeling perfectly poised at the very same time. Formula is flawless! You could easily get away with one coat here, but I doubled up to make it ultra-opaque. This is 2 coats.


Satin Slippers is a Pearlized Ballerina Pink. Yaaasss! Something that many nail polish companies overlook when producing ballet-inspired colors is the need for a pearlized finish when creating slipper-like shades. Satin Slippers actually has that quality, making it the absolute perfect representation of ballet slippers ever seen in the polish world. Trust. Satin Slippers is sheer, but it builds beautifully {use thin coats}, and looks positively brilliant on the nail. This is 3 coats.


AVAILABILITY: Sephora

PRICE: $12.50 each.
