from ST. CATHARINES
This product is NOT easy to apply. it was a very frustrating experience, I held that magnetic end as close as I could without letting it touch the polish and smear it, and NO design. Very disappointing. This is a very good quality line, and I hope they work to improve the strength of the magnet in the applicator end so that the design will be easier to produce.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Disappointed in this
Loved the colours - pink mauve and grey. Applied the mauve colour and then quickly tried to do the magnet - no luck. I tried again with no luck. Never got a chance to try the grey, as I sent it back. Colour I liked but the magnetic polish needs some work! How does it adhere? Too bad, as I like everything elese ordered from this line.

Found it hard to master, wouldn't get the magnetic effect on the whole nail. Once satisfied with the application for the most part, put on top coat, but polish chipped and peeled in the shower the very next day. Very expensive for poor quality.

The polish does dry too quickly. It takes practice to get the design in the right place before the polish dries. Especially difficult with the stripe pattern (to ensure stripes on each nail are in the same direction/angle). Its difficult to hold the magnetic lid close enough and not touch the nail. Concept is good - formulation needs some work.
Polish dries too fast.
By nailpolish lover
The problem with this product is that it dries way too fast and then you are unable to pull the design out with the magnet. Ordinarily polish that dried this fast would be a plus but in this case you need a little more time with the formula. I was able to pull the design out of the gold but with violet, by the time I finished applying to a nail and put magnet to the surface it was already dry! Please work on your formula, Sheri!

This product is NOT easy to apply. I tried it as soon as it arrived (only the rose/grey was available, I love purple and would prefer that one--saw it just being demo'd now), and it was a very frustrating experience, for I held that magnetic end as close as I could without letting it touch the polish and smear it, and NO design. Very disappointing. It seems my experience is not unique from a few other previous reviews. I agree there needs to be better instruction to show where and how to hold it so that the design will be uniform for each nail too. It appears this is a quality line, and I hope they work to improve instructions and perhaps strengthen the magnetic strength in the applicator end so that the design will be easier to produce, and it will not feel like you have to be in danger of smudging each nail to get the design to appear. I couldn't make it happen. Disappointing, but I WILL try some of the treatment line as it looks good, especially that pink gel for my fingernails--since I personally don't want color on my nails (it looks lovely on others, just a personal preference), and save the color for my toes. I bought the magnetic line planning to use it on my toes. Perhaps it might be wise to try on fingernails first for ease of use, whether or not you wanted it for fingers or toes.

not easy to apply
I bought both colours. First of all they need double effort to be removed. I agree with another reviewer that you have to try it a couple of times and mark it yourself so that next time you know which way you should apply. spend 3-4 more times than the regular nail polishes because you have to paint nails one by one and use the magnet, other than it does not work well. You need a thick coat and apply magnet immediately to be able to see the design. Overall, considering the price and quality, not happy and will not recommend it.
not so great!
By country girl
I got this in the rose/grey, nice colors, however the magnetic cap does not work very well! I had a few nails that turned out good, the rest the design didn't even show up on my nails. It's also hard to get the same design on every nail because there's no guide on the cap to show you which way to hold the cap.
looked so easy on tvbottles difficult to open and really need to put a thick coat on and quickly have the magnet do its thing without touching the nail.if not held properly colour dried without design or design was crooked.
This is so fun!
from Calgary, AB
My daughter and I were playing around with this nail polish last night - WOW. Paint on a thick coat, hold the lid close to your fingernail and presto, just like magic! The Violet is absolutely beautiful. The polish has a very nice texture, smooth and shiny. Haven't had it long enough to say how well it stays on before chipping or wearing off but it looks very professional - if it's as good as the rest of product line I'll have no complaints.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
