So many nail colors, so little patience. For those of us who wish we could swap out new shades as fast as we can paint, behold: Formula X Press Pods. This limited-edition set features 24 of the cult-favorite nail lacquers in single-use capsule form. The Sephora Glossy caught up with Kristin Walcott, Vice President and Global General Manager for Kendo, to get a handle on their latest innovation. BECKY PEDERSON
How did the idea of single-use polish pods come about?
KRISTIN WALCOTT: Formula X has been doing extremely well at Sephora since we launched last October. The Press Pod gives fans the opportunity to try out a wide range of colors and effects from the line with minimal investment. Nail junkies want to change up their color every week. The Pods offer a perfect way to experiment and play.
How do they work exactly?
KW: Each capsule contains a unique built-in brush and enough lacquer to coat all 10 nails in two coats. We like to say, “For a flawless manicure, simply pop, press, and paint!”
Can they be used with the complete Formula X System?
KW: Yes! The System extends the wear of your manicure, so it’s a great choice to pair with Press Pods.
It seems like they’d be great when you’re on the go, too.
KW: Yes, they are perfect for traveling. When I hit the road, I throw a Press Pod in my makeup bag along with our individually wrapped, single-use, nail polish-remover pads, Delete-to-Go, and our hydrating cuticle balm stick, Quench-To-Go, and I’ve got everything I need for a quickie mani.
