Kiko Purple Magnetic Polish

Hi dear readers !

Wow, it seems you loved my previous manicure, thank you for all your nice comments :) I'll take time to answer you this weekend ;)

Today i have something more simple to show you.  I finally got into the magnetic polish trend. Well, in fact, I have the Essence magnetics collection since Christmas 2010 when it was available, I tried them on but never took time to swatch them. I guess that happens when you have too much polish :s

I was in France a few weeks ago and didn't resist to get some of the new Kiko collections: magnetics and crackles. Let's start with my favorite shade, the purple magnetic :)


This color is lovely ! I actually like it a lot. I love when the magnet creates two very distinctive shades, and that's the case with this Kiko !
The application is smooth but i was disappointed by the drying time, as the Essence Magnetics dry very fast. These are a little low to dry, I waited 10 minutes then applied one coat of Seche Vite.

I think a little time is necessary to get used to those polishes and the way you have to apply the magnet, as you can see I messed up the index finger, and even if the ring and pinkie look good, the middle finger is better than the others imo :)

I only regret that Kiko only offers a magnet with straight lines. I totally love the wavy magnets but all of the European brands I have only come with a straight lines magnet. But I hope I'll manage to get a wavy pattern like the Nails Inc or Icing ones :)

So, what do you think ? Do you like that color ?
What are your thoughts about the magnetic polish trend ?

Thanks for looking and commenting :)

Have a nice day ^^
