Dance Legend ~ From Russia with Love

Dance Legend ~ From Russia with Love
Orange red with strong golden shimmer. Magnetic.

From Russia with Love is from the Golden Eye collection of magnetic polishes.

Magnetic polishes didn’t interest me the first time they were around. I bought a couple of them, but they’re still in my infamous box of untried. It’s not that impressive an effect in my opinion. I bought From Russia with Love anyway because I liked the colour. I obviously also bought a magnet. Or: I actually bought two :D

The formula is good and the polish covers in two easy coats. I hoovered the magnet over my nails; nothing happened. I hovered it closer to the still wet nail: still nothing. I thought that perhaps I wasn’t fast enough so I moved to the next nail. Second layer of polish over, then hoover the magnet over it, really close to the nail. Absolutely nothing happened.

So I didn’t get any special effect out of it, but the colour is still pretty.

Here’s two coats and no topcoat taken in the sunshine.

Look at that shimmer, isn’t it just amazing!

This picture is taken in the lightbox. It’s still pretty.

I must admit that I am rather disappointed over the lack of effect. I can’t figure out what I did wrong, so I’m just happy that I actually like the colour even without the promised effect.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Pretty good
Finish: Strong shimmer. Magnetic – even though I didn’t get it to work.
Overall impression: Great colour, cool shimmer. No magnetic effect for me.
Buy again: Maybe


  1. i kinda like it, its looks your Nails are on fire!=)

  2. It's a gorgeous polish - but I see why you are disappointed...
    I only tried the ones from Bow Polish and Masura - with the Masura magnet (the strongest I have been told), and I get incredible effects even if the magnet is just ½-1 cm over the nail, and is rapidly removed again.

    1. I simply don't know why I didn't get any effect. The magnets I have are *really* strong and I was fast as lightning. It's weird.

  3. Amazing fiery shade. It's a pity the magnet didn't work...

  4. It's a shame that the magnetic effect didn't work, because the colour is awesome :D
