Brand Claims:  Polished London Nail Enamel is a collection of the latest colour trends from Europe in a world-class salon formulation all at an affordable price. Polished London is confident in its products; this is why they provide their customers with a satisfaction guarantee. Offering you assurance with your nail polish, because the last thing you want is to buy the ideal nail colour and be disappointed due to poor performance! Polished London nail enamel is quick drying, has greater gloss and is chip resistant. Polished London is free from toluene, formaldehyde, camphor and DBP.

My opinion: Are you so over with crackle nail polish, can’t even stand it or simply look for something new to try? If yes, then I have a good news for you. Thankfully due to Polished London now we have a new nail polish toy to play with here in Aust, named Magnetic Effects. This product is based on newest and most buzzed tread of nail art, which was initially invented Layla Cosmetics.

Polished London Magnetic Effects has effective bottle packaging. It's sort of chunky (due to nature of product) but functional and very nicely labelled.  The top cap with attached magnet, pulls off to reveal a smaller cap and the smaller cap has build-in brush ofcourse to paint nails. The attached magnet is large enough for even the longest and widest nails. Plus, there is a lip at the base of the magnet, almost 0.5 cm tall which meant to be placed on your cuticle to balance the magnet and keep you away from denting your polish with it.

The formula of polish is surprisingly thin even though it includes the metallic particles that react to the special design in the magnet. It lays down nicely and steak-free on nails. It's so pigmented that you can easily work with one coat only. However I personally prefer two coats just to be on safe side, specially with this product because it gives you extra opportunity to test your magnet holding skills and to get better results. Here is my two coated mani. 

The only downside is that (as it's a new innovation) it requires a fair bit of practice with the magnet. However after giving a old fashioned test, I would say it's a great concept and a working product.

There are 4 shades in total as displayed below in this range. I might buy other two shades polish to complete my collection. What about you? If you own this product, I’d love to hear what your thoughts are.!
