If you love rose gold and metallic polishes, then get ready for this! New for Holiday 2015, Formula X has released a new limited edition version of its beloved Effects Nail Color in Alchemy, Alchemy II ($16 CAD). To see some more swatches and my thoughts on this polish, click........

Housed in a special rose gold bottle, Alchemy II looks like a gorgeous rosy bronze from afar but up close, the polish is packed with fine metallic particles of blue, gold, and pink. The formulation is absolutely superb, I used two coats for the swatches below with no top coats. Additionally, the drying time is incredibly short, mostly due to the fact that the polish has more solid bits than solvent. The finish is surprisingly smooth with an alluring metallic shine.
