Received Formula X Bonded 2U as a Christmas present from a friend. Decided to finally try it out earlier this month since I was going to a wedding. Formula X is supposed to be known for a pretty long wear time. I didn’t try it on with their top/bottom coat, but I did use a different bottom coat from another brand before applying Bonded 2U.

It applies as a dark purple and a pretty nice coat. I noticed that on some fingers there was some streaking. Not super noticeable but it was there. I wasn’t sure if my bottom coat was just too slippery for the polish to adhere correctly or not. I couldn’t really apply another coat on top without messing up my initial layer and feeling heavy.

I was happy about the wear time though. In the swatch above it was actually day 3 of wearing the polish. Very, very minor chipping. So I would say that the polish is pretty good for at least 4-5 days before experience big chipping.

I kind of wish the brush was a bit flatter for easier application, but it wasn’t too big of a deal.

All in all, pretty good polish. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it if you’re looking for a nice fall colour.
