Formula X Being Discontinued?

So I was just on Sephora's website and noticed that all Formula X products are half off, and the selection of nail polish colors has diminished significantly.  

 

Is Formula X being discontinued?! If so, it'll be a bummer since I love The System and Formula X is the only nail polish I use.

Check out my post above.. Many of the Formula X colors are back on sale for $5.. Catch them while you can!!!

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

Thank you! I bought up a bunch! I'm sure I don't need them all. lol

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

Thanks for the tag!

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

Yay!   Thanks for the tag @willa25!   Still sad they are being discontinued, though... Smiley Sad

Excellent, thanks @willa25!

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

For those looking for a new polish brand I suggest Innisfree from Korea. HUGE difference in quality from other brands. I bought some in Korea but I see it regularly at a decent price online. 

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

@GhostInTheShell, do you use a base coat/ top coat by them? I have tried so many things and my nails always chip withing a couple days.

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

Oh and to answer your question (in two replies), Formula X on my fingers chips within HOURs. I'm displeased with the formula. The Innisfree brand without base and top coats lasts for days without chipping at all I found. 

 

If you are looking for a Sephora product then the Perfect Formula products seem to last for a week or longer for me without showing day-to-day wear. By then the tips are wearing down but not obviously flaking off the nail. No colour choices though. 

 

All my personal experiences though. (@heartsmyface might be able to contribute more info).

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

Hi, no I haven't tried their base or top coats. My only experience is applying the polish directly to my nails. It stayed far longer than other brands (cough Formula X cough). All three of the Innisfree polishes I bought in Korea were very smooth when applying. There's a level of quality I think we just don't see usually. I'm forever spoiled now ;_;

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

Well, in just 11 months time we'll be walking myeongdong and we'll have to pick up the base and top coats.  

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

@GhostInTheShell funny that you mention Korean brands - I just picked up some Etude House nail polishes while in Asia and I'm really impressed at the quality! I just worn one for two weeks (admittedly two weeks of vacation, so little heavy lifting) with only minimal tip wear

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

 Yes! I have a bunch of Etude & Innisfree polishes and they are fantastic,and dirt cheap to boot.I find my Korean brand polishes tend to be much better quality than my Western ones,as well.

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

Yes, they are amazing, right?!

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

Has anyone ever used Smith & Cult brand nail polish? The designers are the same people behind the original Hard Candy brand and they have some great reviews. I really like the colors but I can't get through my head paying $18 a bottle. If someone told me they used them before and they are good... well, then that would be a different story Smiley Happy

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

@willa25 I have several Smith & Cult shades. S&C is in my top three favorite nail polish brands. Some of my favorite shades are Stockholm Syndrome, Kings & Thieves and Lo-Fi. I think these polishes are long lasting and chip resistant. The top coat and base coat I generally use are from Nails Inc so I can't speak to how S&C's perform. Tip, I see a lot of reviews complain about the cap. The metal cap pops off, makes application so much easier.

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

@vegchililover78, thanks so much for the feedback.. especially for saying you like Stockholm Syndrome! I found a coupon code for DermStore so it brings it down to $14.40 each with free shipping.  I'm thinking I will only buy one for right now just to try it out and then I can always buy more later. Thank you again!

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

@willa25 I have a handful of them (including the base and top coat). They're my HG polishes. Last for well over a week and they are super smooth to apply and dry quickly.

This is saying a lot seeing that they are impossibly hard to get in Canada (only available in some salons) and are $25-$28 a piece. But well worth it in my opinion.

The bottles are super adorable too so that helps a little. If you do end up picking some up, make sure to pop off the giant top cap to get the main brush top. I know a ton of people online complain how the bottles are stupidly designed because its hard to hold the giant decorative cap Smiley Wink

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

These are very pretty @willa25. They're like a grey/purple and grey/voilet color. (I stink at descriptions. Anyone feel free to right the correct description of these colors for meSmiley Happy)

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

Yep.. @NancieNano, notice any trends?!?! (Grey.. lol) I tend to like muted grey shades but I was really taken by the Stockholm Syndrome shade as I can't find another dupe for it. I think the other one (Doe My Dear) is similar to Porchester Square from Nails Inc which I of course, already own. I can't really justify buying a similar shade to what I already have so I think I'm going to start out buying just one to try it out and go from there. Smiley Happy

Re: Formula X Being Discontinued?

Hmmmm I wonder how OPI's taupe-less beach compares to those? I love taupe-less beach and the ones you posted are super pretty!
