EN: Hello Bananas! Today I will share with one my first Magnetic nail polishes from Nails Inc. London called Windsor Castle. I have this nail polish since March 2012, I got it as an early Bday gift. I loooove the colour, it's blue with some purple shimmer/undertone.
Now regarding the application, like my other N.I.L. nail polishes it's perfect no complaints the issues start with the magnet, you have to apply two coats of the nail polish in order to then use the magnetic, but the marks not always show up, I don't know if I was not applying enough nail polish or the magnetic is a bit weak. Annnooother thing that annoys me is the fact that this nail polish doesn't last more than 24 hours on my nails -_-. I am not joking! In the past I have used the Kensington Caviar Topcoat but this time I used the Catrice Quick Dry & High Shine Topcoat and it's the same. It's like as soon as the clock hit the 24 hour mark it starts peeling :( *sigh*.
I don't how necessary it is to use the Kensington Caviar Basecoat (I have the Topcoat not the Basecoat) for these Magnetic nail polishes. I have used others in the past and it made no difference what so ever.
Have any of you ever bought a N.I.L. Magnetic nail polish? What was your experience with it? Do I really need the K.C. Basecoat to make it last?
EN: These Magnetic nail polishes from N.I.L. cost (at least last year) about £13 fffuuuuuuuuu. Like I said before I love the colour, it is one of my favourites but it's insane that something that expensive doesn't last more than 24 hours, what the hell?!?!
What do you guys think? In the mean time my friend Vanessa gave me for my birthday a KIKO Magnetic nail polish, I'm probably gonna use that one next and see how it goes.
