Essie Repstyle

I was hesitant to invest in another magnetic polish (which sounds so weird to say, because a couple years ago I would have given my right pinky nail for one U.S. magnetic polish!) (Ok, I wouldn’t have given a real nail but you know what I mean, haha).

But ultimately, I couldn’t resist Essie’s line of magnetic polishes, which have a cool, reptilian theme.

Of the six polishes, I picked up Repstyle. I love the brown, and I figured it’d be good with my skin tone. I got it at Rite Aid.

No dilly dallying…let’s get to swatches!

I took these photos when my nails were still squared.

Repstyle has a very interesting effect, but as you can see, I need to play around with it more to consistently achieve it although sometimes I find that the magnetic polishes don’t hold their shape and then when you add top coat, it moves the design too. But man, that ring finger. What a super cool look, right?!

Have you tried any of the Essie magnetic polishes?! What do you think?!

      I wouldn’t buy the whole line, but I definitely think they’re a fun effect and they offer some trendy but classy colors!
