It’s a Party on my Nails: Formula X Demolition


My love affair with Formula X continues with the latest party guest. According to the company’s website, Formula X Demolition will “[b]ring down the house with [an] eruption of blue, turquoise, lime, and orange confetti”.

Formula X Demolition

This gorgeous top coat is part of the Xplosives line, designed to be mixed and matched with various coloured bases or worn alone. I paired it will Invincible, also from Formula X, which is a cream-nude that came in the Sephora Favorites Meet Your Match mini set.

In combination with my OPI base coat and my trusty Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, this wore well without chipping for about 10 days. I am excited to test out the Formula X System in totality (I picked the system which includes a cleansing step, base coat and top coat in Sephora last month). However, I cannot bring myself to open it until I have finished off the base/top coats that I already have opened. Will report back when I finally do.

A note of warning, this is challenge to remove. I had just run out of my all time favourite Zoya 3 in 1 and the only thing lying around was a store brand polish remover that wasn’t up to par. You’ll either need something like the Zoya or 100% acetone to get this off. Still so worth it in my opinion.


What do you guys think? Do you like special effects nail polishes/varnishes or are you so over it? Would you sport Formula X Demolition?
