Sephora X The Prismatics Nail Polish in Hypnotic Review and Swatches

Sephora has introduced a new line of nail polishes called Sephora X, which includes nail-transforming top coats and special effects shades along with more traditional colors. Sounds cool, but I haven't had much luck with Sephora's nail polishes in the past (see: Sephora by OPI Nail Polish in Seeing Pink Elephants or Sephora + Pantone Universe Opulent Lacquer Trio in Gold). Still, I tried Sephora X The Prismatics Nail Polish in Hypnotic ($11.50) which is a silver purple metallic with flecks of gold glitter. The verdict? I love it!

Sephora X The Prismatics Nail Polish in Hypnotic is a very multidimensional metallic shade: I've never had a polish that looks purple one minute, then silver, green or gold the next. Additionally, it has good coverage and a thin, ultra fast-drying texture that really reminds me of high-quality nail polishes like Butter London or Julep. Plus, it has fabulous wear time -- here are my nails after wearing Sephora X The Prismatics Nail Polish in Hypnotic for an entire WEEK without a top coat:

Finally starting to chip after a full seven days. That's quite good performance, in my opinion.

Oddly enough, I haven't noticed Sephora promoting their new Sephora X nail polishes very much. I hope they get the word out soon, because these polishes are great! They're not super cheap, but Sephora X is still cheaper than Butter London and Julep while providing comparable quality. 

I hope you get a chance to check out Sephora X The Prismatics Nail Polish in Hypnotic for yourself!
