I Got Distracted

I was going to show you pictures of the Salon Effects I bought last week, but before I even opened the boxes, I came across this at Target:

Sinful Colors Sinfully Magnetic "Captivate Me." 

I love the color. It's a great pinky-purple that fits well with my wardrobe. Between the shimmer and the magnetic effect, this color has so much depth, it's almost holographic, with the image seeming to move in different light or from different angles. 

I'm not really sure why, but my left pinky wouldn't take the pattern. You can see the beginnings of it there near the cuticle, but that's as much as I got. 

The Sinful colors uses a ring magnet, which made it easy to hang on to and I didn't have to mess with setting it down and picking it back up again in between nails. I did notice that the pattern didn't take quite as well on some of my nails. It kind of looks like there's a lense flare or something, just a big blank patch. I assume this has to do with the shape of my nails and that section being too close or too far from the magnet, but I can't be sure. 
On it's own, I love the color and it coves well in only one coat. I can see using it by itself (without the magnet). I also really liked some of the other colors in the collection, and would like to get more of them--and at only $4.99 each (versus $9.99 for the Sally Hansen version, and we all know how I feel about SH) I'll probably end up with at least 3-4 more, if not the whole collection.
