Formula X System XCEL Voxbox

I received my Formula X System XCEL Voxbox this weekend from Influenster!

This system claims 4 steps for a gel-like mani with no lights, fuss or damage. It's also claims 10 day wear, chip resistance, and a new brush with a faster, smoother finish.

1. CLEANSE removes oils
2. PRIME base coat for stronger/longer adhesion
3. COLOR pick your own formula x color
4. SHINE  gel-like plumping top coat

The color I received is called TGIF, a bright coral pink.

I also received Delete All, their 5 finger polish remover. It's a jar with sponge inside.


Now... I am wearing acrylic nails so my husband is testing the longevity claims for me for 5 days while he works (he's a good man!).

I polished as follows:
Pointer finger with the XCEL System
Middle one with 2 coats TGIF (no base/top) Thumb with traditional LED gel polish

  ***5 Day Wear Test Results:  The shine lasted a bit longer on the XCEL System nail but in my opinion the nail with no base or top coat at all held up just as well.  Neither held up as well as the traditional gel polish. I can almost guarantee average wear would be better than this because he strenuously tested these polishes.  He works at a vintage auto restoration shop so his hands have been tearing cars apart, covered in brake fluid etc. ***

He also tried the Delete All polish removed for me. This is 2 coats of color on each nail, glitter added for testing.  It removed most of the polish in 30 seconds or less. We did another dip for the glitter. Only complaint is he could barely fit his fingers in the holes so they would need to be cut wider.

Over all the system is really nice. I'm not generally a fan of light-less gels but I like that their's works worth any Formula X polish. I don't really like the wide brush personally, it stays fanned out a bit too much for me.  The color is beautiful but the formula was a little on the thicker side.  The delete all removed the polish very quickly so I was impressed with that.
I also LOVE their bottles, so cute and store nicely.

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for my honest review.
