Formula X Being Discontinued?
So I was just on Sephora's website and noticed that all Formula X products are half off, and the selection of nail polish colors has diminished significantly.     Is Formula X being discontinued?! If so, it'll be a bummer since I love The System and Formula X is the only nail polish I use.

Best replacement product for the Sephora Cuticle Care Pen?
Hello beautiful people!   I gave my mom one of the sephora collection cuticle oil pens a few years ago, and she loved it for treating hangnails.  She particularly liked that it was a bit waxy instead of just an oil since that really sealed hangnails and moisturized her cuticles, but now that it has been discontinued I haven't seen anything similar. Does anyone have advice on a similar product? I'm looking for more of a treatment product (not a daily care product), and since she is a rower she doesn't want an all over hand cream.    Thank you!!

Formula X Color Curators
Maybe I've lost my mind...or maybe I'm just totally obsessed with nail polish. I was in love with the new mini collections each month, even though I'm ashamed to admit I missed picking some of the shades I wanted and they sold out. I asked on facebook about the new collection and was told Huda was for November. I've listed all the collections I could remember/find online. Am I missing one or is the rep wrong? Please help, thanks!   1. Aimee Song 2. Patrick Star 3. Cupcakes and Cashmere 4. Ballet Beautiful 5. Ashley Graham 6. Sonya Richards 7. Urban Bush Babes 8. Rose Siard (Rose XOXO) 9. Atlantic Pacific 10. Huda   What am I missing? Please help.

Show me your nails!
I'm loving this nail polish from Nails Inc. I used the superfood base coat, Nailkale in Victoria and finished it off with the 45 second top coat.  The color is so rich and easy to apply.

Orange - it reminds me of carrots, like in a bad way. I like carrots and I don't know why but I cannot wear orange nail polish. see post

Tips and tricks for painting small nails...
So I have really small nails, not just short, but small. I was wondering if anyone had any good tips and tricks for painting my nails at home. I recently got a manicure, but I'd like to also be able to save money and do it on my own. But I always have trouble since my nails are so tiny. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've included photos of my nails next to/overlapping a dime to show a size comparison. :-) Thanks so much!

Tips for avoiding bubbles in nail-polish?

Nail Care
My nails are weak and very clear when they grow out. I pick my nails while they are growing out, plus, I trim my cuticles on a bi-weekly basis with one of those cheap cuticle cutters from the drugstore. I'm noticing that my cuticles itch more than ever now when they are growing back, and my nails are in varying opaque shades when they grow. I have been using a nail strengthener and occasionally painting my nails as a method of NOT picking my nails. I've looked at the products offered on Sephora and just don't know what to get! I would appreciate some advice and product recommendations for caring for my nails.

Q. Best Base and Top Coats for Nails?
So I have been on a nail kick like crazy, before I wouldn't even bother to do my nails because it seemed as soon as I would paint them, they would start to chip. I have been using a rather terrible routine with my nails recently, which was the Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Strengthener as a base coat, two coats of whatever polish, and then the Julep Polymer Top Coat which I just ran out of. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on the best base/top coats on the market? Thanks!

2016 Resolution: Nail Polish Challenge!
Hello lovely ladies of Sephora!   So I've never been very serious about makeup, my hair, my nails, etc. until very recently. After graduating college with a degree in Animal Science, I'm now starting a job in the animal nutrition industry as a brand representative for a major pet food company. Clearly I need to look (and feel!) my best when I'm spending hours at a time talking to people about their fur babies.   One of the ways I'm doing this is to challenge myself to use up the nail polish I currently have (and really don't like, hence why all the bottles have remained full) before I let myself buy new bottles that I'll adore. I'll be documenting my challenge online to make myself really stick to it, and I welcome any color/design suggestions!   My current collection is quite small--of the 22 bottles I'm using only 16 colors plus top and base coat in my personal challenge--but I hope it inspires other ladies to use what we buy rather than let it sit on a shelf collecting dust.   xoxo K.D.

Searching for an Illumasqua Nail Polish
I am searching desparately for a high quality replacement polish for Illumasqua Nail Laquer in "Jo'mina." It was previously sold at Sephora, and Bloomingdales, but after not being sold in the U.S. (and not shipping to the U.S. for about 2 years), the color has been discontinued. There are no American retailers for the brand at this time. I haven't found anything color/formulation comparable since. I describe the shade best as an electric/neon lilac and I am willing to try both traditional and gel polish formulations. Thank you!

Nail Polish Recommendations
What's your favorite nail polish and why? Do you have a brand that you absolutely adore?    My favorites come down to ease of application because I'm not exactly patient nor do I have a particularly steady hand. So far, my favorite brands are Sparitual, 100% Pure, and Julep.

What is the perfect 1950's red nail polish?
I'm looking for a close match to a red nail polish that is from the 1950s. I really love Formula X, but also OPI might be a good option as well... I currently own the Formula X Pyrotechnic, which is a red shade that I think fits the 50s.. But I still want to look and see what other options would "fit the bill" for the 50s. I just didn't know if anyone had any other recommendations, although I do love Pyrotechnic, it would be nice to have another red option! Thank you!

Has anyone tried jamberry nail wraps?
I have been invited to a party for Jamberry nail wraps, which I haven't heard of until now.  My friend insists they apply and last way better than any nail wraps bought around here, and looking at the website, they are adorable!  They even have a style box to subscribe to!  I will probably go to the party and buy a few to try out before committing to a monthly subscription...   Has anyone tried these before?  Do tell!   PS the website ends in .net
