Essence Magnetic Nail Polish (Swatch/Review)

I avoided giving into the magnetic nail hype that has been going around.  I didn't think I would have the time or patience to deal with magnets etc etc.  At my local Fred Myers, I noticed that Essence had a bunch of new magnetic polish for less than $3.   I figured for $3, I had to try it.  I was really surprised that it worked!  There were two different magnets to purchase (stripes and a star).  The key to getting this to work is to apply a thin layer of the polish (let it dry), then apply a thicker layer of the polish on top and use the magnet immediately.  I have included pictures of the magnet below.   I'm not a huge fan of the lilac colored polish, I think magnetic nails look better with darker colors!  Enjoy the swatches and photos!
