Time for another beauty review! I want to chat to you about a new nail product, Avon Colour Attract Magnetic Nail Enamel, which will be available in the UK from brochure 16.

Magnetic nail polish has been available for some time now, and Avon have decided to release their own. I enjoy using Avon's nail products and I always get excited when they release something new, so this was a must-try for me. There are currently 8 shades and 4 wands to choose from, but I'm sure Avon will release more if these are a hit! Most magnetic nail polishes have the magnet attached to the top of the lid, but Avon sell their polish and magnetic "wands" separately, so you can mix and match the designs and colours - Avon have done the maths for you; add up the combinations you get "32 ways to wow"!

All of the shades are gorgeous. I bought 2; "Rose Reflect" (perfect for this season's Autumn nails) and "Magnetic Metal". I also bought 2 wands, "Chevron" and "Wave". In retrospect I should have bought more shades - "Gold Rush" and "Lavender Lure" are defiantly on my to-buy list (I want all of them, actually)!

These polishes and magnetic wands are dead easy to use, but instructions are included anyway! Here's what you do;
  • Simply apply 2 coats of your chosen Colour Attract shade over a dry base coat.
  • While the nails are still wet, position the magnet over the nail for approximately 20 seconds - don't worry about moving the magnet accidentally and spoiling the design, the wand "rest" helps keep the magnet in place!
  • When dry, finish with a top coat to seal in your manicure. Voila!!!

I'm really pleased with the results I achieved. The magnetic patterns are fun yet sophisticated, and they really do give a salon-style finish. Of course, you don't have to use the magnetic wands at all, you can wear the colours as they come without the magnetic designs and they still look fantastic, but when you use the wand it pulls the magnetic glittery particles together to create a stunning designs as well as striking contrast and high definition. The result: a professional-looking manicure without the salon price tag!!!
Avon's nail shades stay chip-free for up to 10 days, but you can use Avon Gel Strength Base Coat (click here to read my review) underneath the polish to prolong your nail colour further - I seriously can't praise the stuff enough!!!
When dry, finish your nails with a high-gloss top coat to seal in your manicure for longer and add extra impact. Avon Colour Attract polishes are super-fast drying - another bonus! These shimmering shades are packed with eye-catching glitter, but, unlike most glitter polishes, they're really easy to remove. :)

My conclusion: These polishes and magnets give you an on-trend, professional-looking manicure at home in minutes. Plus they're dirt cheap, dead simple and super-quick to use, and if you get them quick you'll be able to bag them for the introductory price of £3!!! I love them! What more can I say?

Avon Colour Attract Magnetic Nail Enamel and Magnetic Nail Enamel Wands will be available in the UK from Avon Brochure 16. Click here to view nail products on avonshop.co.uk.
