Lancome Le Magnetique in Bordeaux Esmee

This has to be one of the must cool polishes I've ever seen. I was lucky enough to get this one cheap at a Lancome outlet store about a year ago.

The bottle is very small (5.5ml) and has a plastic sleeve with a magnet at the base.

The color is a brown-ish burgundy. Here is one coat:

I applied an additional layer and used the magnet for approx 35 sec per nail - one nail at a time (this is pre-cleanup, sorry):

Unfortunately, I didn't realize that if you apply top coat, it destroys the starburst pattern. This is after cleanup with one layer of topcoat., I just added one more layer over that and re-used the magnet. Shew. After all the time I spent on this mani, I'm glad I was able to "save" it! LOL.


  1. I didn't realize that about topcoat with these, either--good to know, thanks!

  2. Hi Karen,

    Yeah, I was bummed. Doing a magnet mani takes forever, so after all that work, I ruined it! I'm just glad adding another layer worked! LOL.
