Boots 17 Magnetized Nail Polish

I had a sneaky preview of these last week and have to say I really like them, there are four colours in the range – blue, purple, green and silver. I chose to give blue a try!
In the bottle it’s a rich blue with a purple shimmer, which I have tried to capture on camera but pretty much failed…

You can just about see the purple shimmer in the daylight reflection…

In case you haven’t heard about magnetized polishes, in the lid there’s a magnet that when you hover it over a single, thick coat of colour it creates a gorgeous wave-like pattern. There are a few of these type of product hitting the UK market, with various different magnetic pattern options. The 17 magnetized nail polishes have a single pattern, but you can hold it at difficult angles depending which way you want the lines to go.

I much prefer the magnetised pattern effects to those created by the shatter polishes that have been around for a while now. It looks interesting, but not garish and in your face. Somehow it’s more sophisticated!

I loved the look of the silver polish too, so plan to pick this up asap… now how to narrow down which of the other colours I want….!

The Magnetized Nail Polishes are available from now for £5.99 (and also on 3 for 2… not helping the colour temptation)

    So glad these wil be available here and they are affordable. The Nails Inc ones I couldn’t justify the price of.

    These are so pretty! I’ve got a feeling that they will get ‘overdone’ by all the other brands and become really common like shatter polish 🙁 xxx
