Formula X: The System Xcel Review

Hello!

I have been a member of the Influenster program for a while now and I've received a couple boxes and they have been awesome but I have never received nail polish in any of them until now. If you haven't heard of the Influenster program before I'll tell you about it. Influenster is a product discovery platform where you can discover new products, write reviews and share your favorite products. When you sign up you fill out surveys to see if you qualify for any of their VoxBoxes. When you do qualify for a VoxBox you check in your box when you receive it, you review the items and share on your media sites. Pretty easy right? If you would like to join I'll leave my signup link at the bottom.

So this month I received the Formula X The System Xcel box which includes Delete All 5-finger nail polish remover, nail cleanser, base coat, top coat and the color TGIF. This is a gel like system that may last up to ten days.

Formula X The System Xcel

I only wore this for five days so I'll show you my results.

I removed my old polish and cleaned my nails with the Cleanse Xcel nail cleanser then I applied the base coat followed by two coats of TGIF. The formula on TGIF was great and I love the color. I waited for each coat to dry and finished my mani with the Shine Xcel topcoat. Full mani probably took about 15 min to complete.

Day 1
TGIF day 1
Day 5
Close up day 5

This didn't start chipping until day 5 on my left hand, my right hand had a tiny chip on my index finger on day 4. I was pretty rough with my hands doing mommy duties and I also just started a part time job this week.

To remove the polish I stuck two fingers in the Delete All nail polish remover and it took it off pretty quick.
Probably took a minute or two  to remove the polish from all ten nails.



I have to say that the results are pretty great. I will definitely be using this system a lot, now I just have to get more colors. What do you guys think? Like the results? Will you be trying this system? Let me know below.

Thank you for stopping by!

  4. I really like the formula x system when I used it. However, I've got my own system now that works better for my body chemistry.
    Also, that pink is GORG on you.

  6. Beautiful colour! Influenster usually picks me for food or oddball boxes; I almost never get invited to participate in a makeup or polish box, and I find that so funny because that's where I would have the most influence because of blogging.

    1. No problem. I really wanted to see how long it would last on me.

  8. That's a simple kit but honestly, I get better wear just using good ole base coat that I wear always.

  10. This shade is so pretty. I wish influenster had more nail related things!

  11. The color looks so good on you! I actually wasn't thrilled with how it wore on me compared to other similar systems I have tried, but that could just be a body chemistry thing. Unfortunately, I had an acetone accident on day 5 that ruined my wear-time test, but on day 5 I had significant tip wear and crazing on a few nails.
