I bought the new collection so far I've tried bitlervpleasevand she's pampered both started chipping after 24 hrs. I'm a bit ticked thesevarevnot too cheap. I love the colors but seems the formula sucks. I use the same top coat I've been using for avfewvyears seche vite. I know it's not the top coat causing it to chip.

It's not the top coat, it's your nails. Always start with a proper manicure. Buff you nails with either a four-way or seven-way buffer but do not use the polishing buffer, leave it rough. After you buff the nails apply a basecoat - I like one with fiberglass because it adds a bit of strength to my own weak nails. Allow that to dry then apply the nail polish - one to two coats - then let that dry and apply your top coat. Do NOT use a quick dry spray because that tends to cause nail polishes to chip.

I'm not a huge essie fan. I have a few of them but the colors are kinda boring to me and I have problems with the formula too.

Sorry to hear that. I've never had that problem with Essie.

I'm a nail polish addict and love Essie for the reason that it doesn't chip nearly as much as other brands, and I've tried them ALL.  You use an excellent top coat too.  Are you putting a fresh top coat on every night?  I do for the first 2 or 3 nights, then every other night, and my manicure will last about 6 days before there's a notiecable chip.

What base coat are you using?  That may make a difference.
