Why does this Vue 3 form validation script fail?


I am working on a Users CRUD application with Vue 3. I run into trouble while trying to validate the data in the "Add New User" form.

More precisely, I use the function below to make sure no form field is empy:

isNotEmpty() {
  return (
    this.formData.first_name &&
    this.formData.last_name &&
    this.formData.email
  );
}

For a reason I could not figure out, the formErrors array looks like this ["The email is invalid"] instead of ["There are empty filelds","The email is invalid"];

const usersApp = {
  data() {
    return {
      users: [{
          id: 1,
          first_name: "John",
          last_name: "Doe",
          email: "[email protected]"
        },
        {
          id: 2,
          first_name: "Jane",
          last_name: "Doe",
          email: "[email protected]"
        }
      ],
      formData: {
        first_name: "",
        last_name: "",
        email: ""
      },
      formErrors: [],
      userAdded: false
    };
  },
  methods: {
    isNotEmpty() {
      return (
        this.formData.first_name &&
        this.formData.last_name &&
        this.formData.email
      );
    },
    isEmail(email) {
      return String(email)
        .toLowerCase()
        .match(
          /^(([^<>()[].,;:[email protected]"]+(.[^<>()[].,;:[email protected]"]+)*)|(".+"))@(([[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}.[0-9]{1,3}])|(([a-zA-Z-0-9]+.)+[a-zA-Z]{2,}))$/
        );
    },
    formValidation() {
      this.formErrors = [];

      if (!this.isNotEmpty) {
        this.formErrors.push("There are empty filelds");
      }

      if (!this.isEmail(this.formData.email)) {
        this.formErrors.push("The email is invalid");
      }

      console.log(this.formErrors);
    },
    resetAddFormData() {
      this.formData.first_name = "";
      this.formData.last_name = "";
      this.formData.email = "";
      this.userAdded = false;
    },
    addUser() {
      // Validate form data
      this.formValidation();

      // Make New User
      let newUser = {
        first_name: this.formData.first_name,
        last_name: this.formData.last_name,
        email: this.formData.email
      };

      // Add new user
      if (this.formErrors.length == 0) {
        this.users.push(newUser);
        this.userAdded = true;
        window.setTimeout(this.resetAddFormData, 1000);
      }
    }
  },
  watch: {
    users() {
      this.users();
    }
  }
};

Vue.createApp(usersApp).mount("#app");
.logo {
  width: 30px;
}

.nav-item {
  width: 100%;
}

@media (min-width: 768px) {

  }
}

  transition: opacity 2s ease;

}

.users-table-item {
  opacity: 1;
}
