VINTAGE VALENTINE'S: Lancome Le Magnetique "02 Blue Enigma"

We're onto the 3rd vintage nail polish already :) I picked one of my VHTF polishes today, this magnetic polish from Lancome. It is from 2008 and my friend got this for me on one of her notorious shopping trips! This was highly sought after and sold out at the time, and I remember missing out and getting a magnetic polish from Sweden (L'Oreal for some reason release a lot of stuff there we don't get here) instead. I keep this very hidden away as it was very expensive and could probably fetch a fair bit on eBay even as used. Should get a nail polish lock-box really for these kinds of polishes :)

This is extremely pigmented - this is just 1 coat and a slick of Seche Vite. As usual with magnetic polishes I apply the polish, slick on a fast dry top coat THEN use the magnet. I find it sets very crisp then (and fast too!). If you use the magnet on the wet polish, no matter how long you dry before sticking on the top coat, the pattern separates as the particles get room to move in the wet polish again.

Oooh, this is lush. And must've been one of the first magnetic polishes? I have a couple of I think similar vintage Lancome's but mine are morphing shades, apply a base coat and then the matching topcoat which 'transforms' the colour, supposedly. I've never used them!

I think this was the 2nd magnetic one they did! those morphing ones sounds interesting - hope they are not 10yr old untrieds!?
