CAMEO: KRISTIN WALCOTT ON FORMULA X PRESS PODS
Single-use nail polish capsules? The Vice President and Global General Manager for Kendo tells us more.
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.
