Essie Repstyle 2012 Collection - with Repstyle swatch!

Essie's new Repstyle collection is magnetic polish with a twist - instead of the usual zigzags and swirls they offer a snakeskin pattern in 6 shades:

Crocadilly - hunter green lame
Snake, Rattle and Roll - oxidized silver
Repstyle - tanned bronze
Snake It Up - pewter pave python
Lil' Boa Peep - titanium copper
Sssssexy - scintillating sanguine

Available now at major retailers.
I tried a couple of the colours including this one - Repstyle and I have to say that I had a hard time getting the hang of using it. The magnet doesn't have a place to rest your finger on like some of them do so I found it hard to get my finger close enough for it to work without touching the magnet and wrecking the polish! You don't want to know how many times I had to reapply and the amount of swearing that went on!

I also tried one of the darker shades and couldn't get a visible pattern at all! So I'm going to have to say that while I like the idea of this in theory - in practice it was a big, fat pain!
