Review & Swatches: Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat

Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat

Availability: Sephora
Price: $30.00

Company’s Description

This “Suit of Armor” creates a sheer pink coating that strengthens and hardens natural nails so they grow beautifully long and strong. Its keratin-rich formula includes an optical brightener that filters out any yellow appearance in your nails, bringing out the natural color in your nail bed and making the whites of your nails appear whiter.

Perfect Formula’s cult-classic Pink Gel Coat is said to protect and nourish the nails, while giving them a hint of healthy color.

Packaging: 9/10

This polish comes in a glass bottle and has a synthetic brush.

Quality: 9.5/10

The Perfect Formula Gel Polish gives your nails the slightest hint of pink with an even slighter hint of lilac. It’s a beautifully subtle effect.

This nail polish has a gel-like formula and so is slightly thicker than normal nail polishes. It leaves an incredibly shiny surface and dries quickly–in about a minute.

It holds up very well to wear-and-tear. There was virtually no fading and absolutely no chipping after a full day’s-worth of apartment cleaning.

This polish can be worn on its own or as a base for another color.

Ease of Use: 10/10

Applying polish doesn’t get simpler due to this polish’s transparent finish and fast drying time.

Price: 6.5/10

For $30.00 you get 0.6 fl oz of polish. This is a very steep price for a single bottle of polish, especially when you look at brands like OPI and China Glaze, whose bottles cost $8.00-$9.00 each. I often criticize MAC for their polish price (now up from $15.00 to $16.00 a bottle). Perfect Formula’s Pink Gel Coat contains 18 ml of product whereas MAC polishes contain 10 ml. In the end, you pay the same amount for Perfect Formula and MAC polishes. The mitigating factor is that the Pink Gel Coat is a treatment-type product, which might justify a higher price.

    I went to Sephora to see this stuff and they said the only gels they have are to be used with a heating lamp that was a kit sold separately. Is Pink Gel Coat something you use with a lamp? Does it leave your nails somewhat thick like when you go to a salon?

      No, it is not a gel nail polish. And it does not need to be set. The “Gel” part of the name is not meant to mean that it is a gel-formula nail polish.
