Bionic Review: The Perfect Formula nail polish

by Bionic Beauty on 17.Oct.2010 · 3 comments

I recently had the chance to review and swatch a newly released line of nail polish – The Perfect Formula.

At first glance, my attention was caught by the unique bottle shape and gorgeous smokey purple color enhanced with cool lavender tones called Futurist. I’ve got many a purple polish in my nail collection, but none similar to this. Futurist is a pure creme color with absolutely no shimmer; and it works great with gloss or matte top coats. It’s perfect for your Fall 2010 manicures and pedicures!

Can you believe that it’s almost September? I don’t know where the time has gone. It seems I was just planning articles for Spring 2010 and now I’m brainstorming ideas for Halloween makeup tutorials. It’s craziness, I tell ya!

Anyhow, as an “intro” to this Fall’s beauty and makeup trends, I’m linking to a guide by Total Beauty. This way until I get a chance to run-down all the trends I see approaching, and how to achieve them without spending a fortune on new makeup (which is fun… but can play hell on your budget!).
