The first time I tried on my nail i messed it up and it only showed up slightly but once i got the hang of it it really looks brill. Ive had lots of compliments and you literally just need to follow the instructions on the little slip that you get in store. Put one coat on, then leave it to dry, put the second coat on and immediately hold the magnet directly over the nail for 10 seconds.
I would recommend this to a friend!

I bought this Essie nail polish in the red colour. It didn't come with any instructions but I found some online, so I painted all my nails with one coat, then did a second coat on one nail and immediately held the magnet over the nail for 10 seconds. The nail got one or two dark spots on it, and that was it. It just looked like I had messed up painting it, so I was not happy. I usually love Essie but I wouldn't recommend this product at all.

Paint one thin layer - let it dry - paint another layer this time vigourously shake the bottle as the iron particles settle at the bottom of the bottle. Place the magnet on finger just under the cuticle rock from side to side slowly. This ensures full nail pattern coverage.
A better result can be made with three layers then use the amazing essie good to go for gel like effect!

Absolute waste of money

I was really excited about this product being released, but it is a complete waste of time and money. I tried 4 times to make my nails look even slightly "Snakeskin" as it says, but it was patchy and only slightly showed up - it looked more like a badly done manicure. So disappointed, avoid buying at all costs!

I was excited about this, and went out of my way to go to Boots to get it, but now wish I had spent my money on something else. I didn't get a slip of paper with instructions, but painted it on and immediately held the magnet over the top, very close to my nails but not touching them. The result was pathetic. You could barely see the snake effect, even when looking very closely,and it just looked like I was wearing an average shade of blue polish. As another reviewer said, the magnet is too weak. I loved the snake idea, but will stick to other brands that do magnetic better in the future.
I would not recommend this to a friend.

Very Difficult to get a consistent result with the effect.

I was very exited about this product becaue Essie products are usually fantastic. I bought 2 colours - the red and the blue. It sounded so easy on the advertising info, but in practise it is too easy to get it wrong.
You have to apply exactly the right thickness of polish to for the effect to work, too much polish and you get a black blob on your nail, too little and the effect does not develop properly.
Also because the magnet is quite weak and does not follow the curve of the nail, you sometimes get a strip of the effect down the middle of the nail and a plain strip down each side. Would not buy this again.
I would not recommend this to a friend.
