Saša found all Essence Metallics TE magnetic polishes!
So I prepared Essence instructions, opened Maestra’s post about Nothing Else Metals polish + post on ARS forum and enthusiastically started to swatch the polishes.
I guess the fact that I had to remove polish more than 20 times tells you how successful I was.
First I had trouble getting really close to the polish … without touching it with magnet. And if I didn’t come really, rellay close, the effect was pathetic at best.
Then I had to learn how to rotate finger/magnet to spread the image all over the nail. Maestra and I debated that the problem could lie in my high nail curve, long nails and weak magnet. My little finger is short, not as curved as others and I had no problems with it.
I tried out all three patterns that can be made with Essence magnet … sometimes even on the same manicure.
Top coat was used over all polishes.
Nothing Else Metals is really interesting color – some kind of golden olive green. Pretty shade – with pattern or without.
Iron Goddess is nice brown color that gets gray highlights when you use the magnet.
Copper Rulez! is my favorite from Metallic TE. What a gorgeous shade! It looks like rainbow of fall colors trapped in brown base. Copper glitter/shimmer is the prevailing one.
Metal Battle is the only non magnetic polish. They named it “metallic nail polish”. It looked a lot like I Love My Jeans from Denim Wanted TE so I compared them.
The only difference is the color of shimmer – Metal Battle has blue one and I Love My Jeans green one.
Steel Me was hardest to work with, so I gave up and used Alessandro magnet at my middle finger. Uau – look at the effect! The only problem was that I used thicker layer of polish (you have to for Essence magnet to work at all) and Alessandro magnet worked to well and literally started to pull polish from my nails. :D
Price for polish: 2,19 EUR.
Price for magnet: 1,69 EUR.
I recommend all four of Essence magnetic nail polishes. But since Essence magnet is just too weak you can either:
- find suitable magnet at home;
- close you eyes, forget about steep price and buy one of the Alessandro magnetic polishes since their magnet is great.
Of course I’m talking to those of you with similar nail length and shape – those with shorter and more “flat” nails should have less problems.
Pros among us are excluded of course.
