Formula X Theoretical | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Theoretical is a purple with tinge of brown polish that has a silvery shimmer. Formula was good, it could be a One Coat Wonder for those people with shortie nails. This is 2 coats plus top coat.

Formula X Daredevil | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Daredevil is a teal polish with blue shimmer. Formula was a little uneven but it has a good thickness; it dries satin. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Formula X Extreme | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Extreme is a yowza red polish with a tinge of orange at the edges. Formula was a little thin but otherwise no complaints; it dries satin. This 2 coats and no top coat.

I love, love, love Theoretical. It is one of those polishes you just have to see in person to see how pretty it really is. What do you think?

Formula X Brain Power swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonMorning all! I hope you are having a good Friday. 🙂 Today I have a polish that you’ve seen on the blog before, underneath Formula X Alchemy III. Let’s take a look at Brain Power by itself!

Formula X Brain Power | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Brain Power is a camel brown creme polish. Though the formula is thin, it self-levels nicely; it does dry satin. This is 2 coats and no top coat. 

It’s nice to have such a neutral polish in my polish arsenal but I’m glad I didn’t pay full price for this!

Formula X Torque and Racy swatches + review

Purchased by Me buttonI’m back with some Formula X nail polishes to show you today: Torque and Racy. These are both chrome-y polishes, one I top-coated and one I did not, just to see how the top coat would change how the chrome looked.

Torque is a brown-green polish. Formula is okay, it dries fast and matte. It also shows all my ridges and flaws. This is 2 coats plus top coat.

Formula X Racy | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Racy is a pretty silvery purple polish. Formula is similar to Torque. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Racy is really pretty, it has to be my favorite. I just love the color. And to be honest, it reminds me of 80s lacy lingerie! 😛 No wonder they named it Racy.

Formula X Alchemy III swatch + review PLUS comparison to Alchemy and Alchemy II

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone and happy Friday! I’m back today with another comparison post. I was lucky enough that a fellow polish-aholic found Formula X Alchemy III for me, since my Sephora inside JcPenney’s didn’t have it. So let’s take a look at Formula X Alchemy III, and comparisons to Alchemy II [previously swatched], and the original Alchemy [previously swatched].

Nail Art with Formula X Orbit, Formula X Vroom, Baroness X Vulcan

Purchased by Me buttonGood morning, my wonderful readers! Today I have a manicure that I was really happy with – I almost thought it looked like stamping, even though I achieved it using nail vinyl stencils. I’ve used Formula X Orbit and Vroom, and Baroness X Vulcan (fb group custom).

Formula X Orbit | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Orbit is a deep blue tinged green creme polish (it’s a bit more green than my photo shows). Formula on this, unfortunately, was no bueno. It was super thin and floody. 😦 This is 2 coats and no top coat.  Continue reading
