I cannot remember what year I bought this polish from Formula X, but it was during the Sephora Beauty Insider $15 reward gift card event. I actually read through my emails to find out. I cannot believe I purchased this in December 2013! Time sure flies because it feels like it was couple years ago. I purchased this with a Dior lipstick and Nails Inc in Queen Victoria Street.
This is Formula X in Wunderkind. Since I did a thorough review of Formula X in Atom + Eve, I will base this on that. Unfortunately, it's not sold on Sephora website anymore.
OPI Nail Envy in Original, Formula X Prime Xcel Base Coat, 2 coats of Formula X in Wunderkind, and then topped it with Formula X Shine Xcel Top Coat.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the brush is on the thin side. I usually don't like thin brushes but this was okay. I just grabbed more polish than usual. I usually wipe one side of the brush in the inside of the bottle before I paint my nails, but I didn't with this polish. With that said, I didn't have that much difficulties painting around the cuticles and sides. The sides were much easier than the cuticles. Secondly, I don't know why so many brands have two tops. I just find it such a waste of space but that's just me. With that said, I actually like the packaging. It's easy to grab while painting and it's simple. Third, the consistency is on the medium. It did not get thick while painting. Thank goodness because I'm able to take my time while painting. I hate the feeling of being rushed while painting. It went on smoothly, and there were not streaking and bubbles. Fourth, the color is a great fall/winter color. Even though it's still considered winter, I found it dark for some odd reason. I think I'm just ready for spring colors. With that said, there's nothing special with the color. It's just a normal navy color with the naked eyes. I only see the sparkle if I'm looking at it outside in the sun. Lastly, there's no chipping whatsoever. I did see shrinkage on the sixth day but it's so minimal. I cannot really see it unless I'm examine it an inch away from the nails. This polish is pretty impressive I must say!
Would repurchase: No, unfortunately it's not sold anymore.
