I have this in 4 shades. A couple were gwp types of things. Just not impressive to me. The colors are cheap looking once applied (perhaps just the shades I have?) and they chip within a day or two. I also do not care for the bottle, it feels awkward and cumbersome to me. They have re-done the brush and I did try the newer brush version and I find it just does not apply product very well. I almost prefer the older brush, which was ridiculously thin and flimsy. Would not repurchase. Too many other better nail polishes out there imho.

The claims on this nail polish are ridiculous, and I do not know how they came up with them. I have two shades of the Formula X polishes. While I do really enjoy the shade selection, I will never waste my money on these polishes again. They apply streaky, and have a watery consistency. You need to use a light hand when applying, or else it will pool up in your cuticles. The worst part about these polishes is how quickly they chip. Expect chipping within a day or two. No base coat or top coat can save the short longevity of these polishes. Save your money and try a different brand.

I have one regular polish and one special effects polish from Formula X, and the regular polish is okay.

Regular color: I would compare it to Essie, as the color lasts for about 3-5 days without chipping, with a top coat. Not bad, but pricey.


Special Effects color: The special effects polish in Spectacle did not even last one day without chipping horribly - and I work at a desk and avoid opening things with my nails. The color is super cool because it is a matte rose color, but what's the point if it chips immediately?...

Unbelievable. Doesn't chip for several days using Nails Inc caviar base & top coat. Every other high end, low end polish chips in 1-2 days on my fingers. Have some odd VIB freebies and sale colors that I love. Will def buy more!!! Highly recommend the nails inc as well.

These are one of the only nail polishes that don't chip on me. However, I do keep my nails very short. I use their three step system of the base coat, nail color and then top coat and I think that really helps. Some of the colors are hit and miss because I find that some formulations chip more than others, which is odd. Frenetic and ignite are my favorite and last quite a long time. It's a great line with fantastic colors.

I received one bottle free during a VIB/Rouge and the another I bought. I will only discuss the formula and wear as I cannot remember the names of the two shades since I'm not at home as I write this review. I must say that I'm quite impressed with the wear and formula of this polish because I'm pretty rough with my hands and with just two coats and a top coat I have yet to experience a chip or serious tip wear after a day of hauling books around and dealing with several kids and two dogs. Its been three days already and so far they still look as if I just applied it an hour ago. Its definitely worth the $10 price tag and I plan on grabbing more shades in the future.

This polish chips no matter what top/base coat used within 24 hours. Do not waste you $.Just as Sephora brand eye shadows are horrible so are there store brand polishes.

You MUST use the whole system- their base coat and top coat and then it lasts. 4 kids and busy life and this lasts at least 10 days. If I take the whole "system" to my nail salon I can get it to last even longer. Love it and the color selection is awesome.

I was excited to test this out when my sister bought the whole formula X system. I used the color "high frequency" which is a beautiful turquoise. I love the packaging and the polish applied beautifully. Sadly those are the only good things I can say about this product. The topcoat bubbled and several nails chipped within 24 hours. For me to pay $10+ for a nail polish, it would have to be perfect. I don't think I will be buying these for myself in the future.
