En Route Essentials - Formula X Manicure On The Go!


I have a love-hate relationship with painting my nails: I absolutely loathe doing it, but I love how it can make any outfit look a little more polished. Also, I only remember to paint my nails before a business trip, like, 10 minutes before my cab comes to pick me up. Yup, imagine me trying to take my credit card out to pay fare, with freshly painted nails. Not a pretty sight. And if I do it in advance? Murphy's Law will have it that it chips the same day and then drives me nuts. But I think I've found a solution! I came across these adorable, mini Formula X sets in Sephora one day, and they're a great solution to the on-the-go mani!

There are 3 different sets, depending on your "nail prescription" needs: Hydrating, Strengthening, and Brightening. I chose the Strengthening Prescription, because I have really supple nails that bend and cause my manicures to crack and peel (which is why I always keep my nails super short).

But what I really love about this system, is it's pint-sized completeness. Yes, I think I invented that word, but that's ok. You've got a strengthening base coat, sheer baby pink polish, top coat, and a cuticle oil. It takes up almost no space in my liquids bag, and because I take it with me, I can fix any chips on the go!

If you're looking for a great on-the-go mani, check these cute little sets out! Heck, I may even pick up another to leave in my desk at work, so I'm always prepared for those last minute business dinners.

So, what's your relationship with your nails like? Let me know in the comments below!



  1. I want the Cupcakes and Cashmere collection so bad! This one looks great for travelling, though!

    1. It immediately sold out at my Sephora! I had my eyes on Latte Run :(

  2. This actually looks like the perfect solution to on-the-go nail fixes. I'm like you in that I absolutely hate doing it, but love the results. Adore the colors too! Excited to look into this!


    1. Thanks Madison!! It feels like such a chore :P
