Beauty Test Lab: A Rad New Way To Wear Magnetic Nail Polish

Magnetic nail polish: Feeling a little been there, done that? Well, maybe Essie's latest launch will put some pep back in your polish step. The new Repstyle Snakeskin Magnetics polish collection features six magnetic polishes in dark and jewel-toned hues that, when used with the accompanying magnet, create a "snakeskin" print on nails.

Essie Repstyle Snakeskin Magnetics, $10.99 each, available at Target.
