When I received my box, he System Formula X from Sephora, it had some cards inside providing basic information and coupons.
The box consisted of
- CLEANSE – Nail Cleanser
- PRIME – Base Coat
- NAIL COLOR – “TGIF”
- SHINE – Top Coat
- DELETE ALL – Polish Remover
What can I say, another great voxbox from Influenster with this fabulous kit. I work with my hands all the time and so I don’t always have time to keep my nails up. You’ll see what I mean as you read and view the pictures. After trying this out, I was surprised at how long it lasted through so many hand washes from work and then of course when I’m home too.
I’ve been saying it time and time again, post after post when it comes to nail products and such. I suck at doing nails and I have the worst hands for them too. Unless I go to the shop and get them professionally done, they are just horrific to look at. On another note thought, I still love “attempting” to be creative with mine. Make sense? No? Okay well sorry about that.
When it comes to these products the only one that I found had an odor was the Nail Cleanser, it had a very strong nail polish remover smell. With the rest of the products I couldn’t smell anything at all.
After applying each of the products I was planning on keeping track at how long it would take for it to dry before applying the next product. By my surprised it dried very quickly. The over all outcome of this is quite good. I liked the finished look, except that I need to work on cleaning up around the edges.
- CLEANSE XCEL – Start with this essential salon secret. Lightly brush over bare nails.
2. PRIME XCEL – Prep, protect, and help polish to stick.
3. COLOR – Apply 1-2 coats using the Tri-X Method: Three swipes – once from the base of the nail to the tip, then follow along each side.
4. SHINE XCEL – Make it last with a glossy, gel-like finish in a flash.
The Delete All remover has five holes for all fingers to fit. It was a bit awkward placing my fingers in the holes but it does work. All I did was place my fingers in the holes, let them set for a few seconds and then pulled them out. They came out pretty clean. There was maybe like a small spot or two that I had to do over but in general, it does what it says.
