Review: Essie Repstyle Collection "Snake, Rattle and Roll"


Yeah, yeah Essie is super late on the whole magnetic nail polish trend but they made up for it by stepping it up. Their new nail polish collection, "Repstyle", features a magnetic that produces a reptile-skin pattern. And as a lover of animal print, I was stoked when I saw this at Rite-Aid.

I got the shade "Snake, Rattle and Roll", which is a pewter color. The nail polish features a square cap that comes off and that is the magnet part. Underneath it looks like the regular Essie bottles. I held the magnet over the wet nail polish for about 30 "Mississippis" (my way of measuring seconds) and when I lifted the cap, I got a super fabulous snakeskin print on my nail! I love it! The design is really prominent. The longer you hold the magnet over the nail, the more pronounced the magnetic design is.

 I drew a stripe on my thumbnail to have two accent nails and to play around with variations on design.

For $11.25 a bottle,  it is quite pricey. I might pick up just one more shade, I really like the blue and gold shades. Overall the product performed up to my expectations, and I loved that Essie stepped out of the box with a different magnet pattern.

Pros: Easy to use, good quality, variety of shades, unique magnetic pattern

Cons: Pricey
Overall: 4/5
