... Coral Colors Magnetic Nail - Alluring Violet ...

Coral Colors Magnetic Nail - Alluring Violet
Purchased from Chemplus - $7.95 AUD
 Magnetic polishees have finally decided to make an appearance down here in the last few weeks - hurrah! Some of the new kids on the block are looking fantastic although I need to sit down and compare the actual colours as some look similar.

This is Alluring Violet which is a beautiful purple with sparkles. Honestly this would make a beautiful colour without the magnetic fun.
Each the Coral Colors comes with a magnet that's wrapped around the handle [which you can see on the picture] And the instructions are written on the inside ...

1. Remove the Magnet Paper Ring
2. Shake the bottle
3. Apply a thick coat
4. While wet place the magnet directly above for 10 seconds with the guide resting on your nail
5. Add a top coat
There is a finger guide on the cardboard but even before applying the polish you can see that it's really easy for the magnet to hit the polish. I found it a lot easier if I held my finger up so I could make sure it didn't hit ... but it definitely is the best magnet to work with this polish. I tried my essence, ulta3, china glaze and homemade magnets but nothing seemed to work except the Coral Colors for me.  I'm not sure if there are other designs in this range but the ones supplied are diagonal stripes.

All up it definitely is a 1 coater and it dries quite quickly which surprised me. It has a slight gritty feel to it that can be rectified with a top coat. Oh and it also it was a breeze to remove which was a pleasant surprise.
And my first ever macro shot - please be nice!  Just showing how pretty it is without the magnet.
 ** Final Verdict **
Not my favourite magnetic polish in the world but it's so pretty that I might be able to forgive it for that.  I'm not sure if it was just me having the issues with using other branded magnets or if this one is just picky for love from the magnet that arrived with with it I've got another in the series that I'll test another day so I guess we will see then.

  2. I hauled magnetic nailpolish on the weekend, including four of the coral colors. After doing the four on nail wheels with their supplied magnet I thought it would be awesome to do one of them on my nails with Ulta 3's star magnet and it was a failure, ended up taking it off before work Monday morning - always love doing this at 5am. So it isn't just you at least.

  3. Wow! I had no idea Coral Colours still existed, let alone did magnetic polishes. I'll have to keep an eye out.
