Avon Fuchsia Force

Today I have a nice little bargain to show you. When magnetic nail polish first came out a couple of years ago I wasn't that interested, and certainly not at £11 a bottle that Nails Inc were charging, but I've seen the products demo'd a few times on QVC and the idea has grown on me.
When Avon brought out a range, at the introductory price of only £3 a bottle I decided what did I have to lose? especially as you can send them back if you don't like them! The magnets come separately on little wands, at 99p each so I splashed out and bought 3 magnets and 3 polishes. There are 4 magnet designs and 8 polishes to choose from, so it's a pretty good range and I have to say I am very impressed with the 3 I got.
I think this one is a little bit special. Avon Colour Attract magnetic nail polish, in Fuchsia Force has extra sparkle in the form of tiny micro glitters, invisible to the camera of course but I can see them! The other 2 colours I got, Spellbound Green and Blue Attraction are just shimmery, but they worked well when I swatched them. I am not sure if there is sparkle in any of the other shades.
Fuchsia Force is a lovely raspberry red/pink and once magnetised it makes me think of raspberry ripple, I love the intensity of the colour in the ripple and the sparkle is very pretty!
They were relatively easy to apply, if I had practiced I may have done a better job, on one finger I think I didn't hold the magnet long enough so the pattern is less distinct and my nails are quite curved so the ripple effect doesn't quite go from side to side but not bad for a first attempt. I am pretty surprised at how much I have enjoyed wearing this, the pinky red is a lovely shade, and the sparkle is an unexpected extra that I really like.
