Essie Repstyle Magnetic Nail Polish Collection
Absolute waste of money
I was really excited about this product being released, but it is a complete waste of time and money. I tried 4 times to make my nails look even slightly "Snakeskin" as it says, but it was patchy and only slightly showed up - it looked more like a badly done manicure. So disappointed, avoid buying at all costs!

The first time I tried on my nail i messed it up and it only showed up slightly but once i got the hang of it it really looks brill. Ive had lots of compliments and you literally just need to follow the instructions on the little slip that you get in store. Put one coat on, then leave it to dry, put the second coat on and immediately hold the magnet directly over the nail for 10 seconds.

Very Difficult to get a consistent result with the effect.
I was very exited about this product becaue Essie products are usually fantastic. I bought 2 colours - the red and the blue. It sounded so easy on the advertising info, but in practise it is too easy to get it wrong.
You have to apply exactly the right thickness of polish to for the effect to work, too much polish and you get a black blob on your nail, too little and the effect does not develop properly.
Also because the magnet is quite weak and does not follow the curve of the nail, you sometimes get a strip of the effect down the middle of the nail and a plain strip down each side. Would not buy this again.
