It's a top coat with a clear base with pink little, medium, and large circular-shaped particles, as well as flower "blossom" shaped particles (Sephora's website describes them as glitter, but they aren't sparkly). It gives the effect of both polka dots and little blossoms on the nails. So delightful!
|I put two blossoms on my thumb.|
Like any polish with little glitters or particles in it, you kind of have to fish them out of the bottle. The "polka dots" came out easily, and I didn't actually have to double or triple dip for them. I did have to go in a few times to find a flower, but once it was on the brush it was easy to dab it on and place it where I wanted. I put a clear top coat (Essie's Good To Go) over the whole nail once the Cherry Blossom polish had dried to lock down any edges. I haven't had any blossoms or polka dots peel off or catch on anything. They all lie down flat really nicely. I think the material is pliable enough that it molds to the curve of the nail.
I really like how the Sephora included photos of both the bottle of the polish and how it looks on real nails.
Formula X is exclusive to Sephora and the Cherry Blossom Top Coat is $12.50 USD. (It is currently out of stock on the website as I write this...)
I think the Cherry Blossom Top Coat is charming!
