Isadora Steel My Heart - swatches and review

Today I want to show you a polish I got on a sale the other day. This is Steel My Heart from Swedish Isadora. I like that they've played with the name and spelled steal steel instead because it has a steel grey colour ;)
It's a magnetic polish but I didn't wear it with the magnetic effect but only as itself. It has a pretty green shimmer effect and a somewhat duo chrome effect.
Looking at the pictures now I see that it looks like three different polishes! :D But it's the same polish in all the pictures - I promise! :)

With the magnetic effect


Type of polish: Magnetic/duo chrome/shimmer.

Colour: A steel grey with green shimmer and purple duo chrome effect.

Opacity: Excellent! This is ONE coat! :D

Formula: Excellent! A very nice formula which is easy to apply. It dried very quickly too!

Brush: Excellent! No complaints at all. I'm a fan of these wide brushes :)

Shine: Very shiny on its own so I have no top coat in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Quite accurate! The shimmer was really hard to capture but it does transfer on to the nails!

Grade: 3/5 :)

I 'm not fan of magnetic polishes (been there, done that ;)) but if you don't give the nails that touch of a magnet they can be quite pretty :) If you do want to have the magnetic effect this polish showed the effect very quickly!! It said 15 seconds on the bottle but 5 seconds was enough.
I would never had bought this to full retail price but it was on sale so I decided to give it a try and to be honest the name stole my heart a bit too ;)

How do you like Steel My Heart?
What to you think of magnetic polishes?


  1. Gillade färgen. Jag är väl inte heller superexalterad efter magnetlack. Kan däremot tycka det är kul med en magneteffekt som accent. Ska allt spana i mina affärer också och se om detta finns reat också, för jag håller med, i fullpris är det inte värt.

  2. Jag gillade d tre översta bilderna men den fjärde gjorde mej lite illamående :P

  3. Läcker färg, och du fick till en bra magnetisk effekt. :-)

  4. Just today I played with my magnetic nail polishes, I got a new magnet from Kiko, it has a "swirl" effect, so I had to try it... :-) (Important: I DID NOT buy a new magnetic nail polish, just a magnet, can you believe me?) And, I noticed how much the nail polish changes when you apply a magnet, the thing that I see on your last photo! :-) Beautiful magnetic effect! :-)
