Back today with more polish ladies, this time some Boots 17 polishes. I really like Boots 17 polishes - especially Amaretto, have any of you tried it?
Boots 17 recently bought out their magnetised polishes, which are great fun, I thought it'd be a bit difficult to use but it's actually quite easy. The big lid comes off which has the magnet in top and has a smaller handle inside, obviously you dont want to be getting polish everywhere if it didn't come off! (click on photo's to enlarge)
For the swatch I did one layer of polish without using the magnet and then another coat with the magnet, but to be honest I could have got away with one coat as its quite pigmented.
Also I tried using the magnet for different lengths of time on each finger to see if this made any difference at all, from left to right; index finger - 3 seconds, middle finger - 6 seconds, ring finger - 10 seconds and little finger 15 seconds. I feel there was not much difference in effect after holding magnet for anything more than 6 seconds although it looks slightly different in picture, when you move your hand about it sort of fades and re-appears, as you can see in the sunlight pictures.
I also tried holding the magnet a different way at a 90 degree angle on my other thumb and it made a nice swirl. Might try that again on all fingers.
Overall I really love the polish and think it's a great idea, very different, if they did a gold one it would be like the stone Tiger's Eye! I may well go back and get another of these but not sure which one to get, I think maybe the grey one but they also come in blue and purple. Decisions, decisions!
Whilst I was in Boots, I got the purple crackle polish that 17 do as well, it such a pretty colour a bit like Nars Purple Rain but less pinky, it still has that same rich purple hue that I LOVE! Bloody love purple I do.
I tried it straight over the green magnetised and I applied a fairly thick layer and waited for it to dry into big 'fault lines' as they looked to me. I just cannot decide if I like crackle or not - do you ladies?

I hope you've like these, and I've got an amazing duo/multichrome coming up in next post for you! xx
