Best Seller: Lancome Le Magnetique Nail Lacquer

What:  Lancome Le Magnetique Nail Lacquer

Why:  I recently fell upon a coveted bottle of Lancome Le Magnetique Nail Lacquer in Bordeaux. Upon first sight, the color is a wonderful mixture of dark, vixenish plum and subtle bronze. It's a stylish reinvention of the hot black shades that are coating the famous fingers of Lindsay Lohan, Hillary Duff, Lauren Conrad, and a cadre of other fashionable celebrities. After all, plum has been touted as "the new black," and, even if black is still the old black, a dark plum nail avoids any association with the Hipsteratti (who originally stole black nail polish from the Goths, who wore the polish to punish their parents).

However, the true amazement is an original creation of famed makeup artist (and wife of Rag & Bone co-founder David Neville) Gucci Westman. She's fashioned a magnetic bottle clip, that, when hovered close to the wet nails, creates a shimmery starburst pattern through its manipulation of iron particles within the polish.

Although I prefer to leave my nailpolish simple and without embellishment, a decorated dark nail is in perfect sync with this season's style. And, besides the magnetic starburst, this nail lacquer has other outstanding attributes. I've long relegated my nail polish purchases to the local Walgreens. And, therefore, I began to accept that all nail polish application is a frustratingly clumpy, uneven, multi-layer pursuit. But the quality of Lancome's Le Magnetique is such that it practically slithers onto your nails. With little effort, an even, seamless coat forms. And, you can totally get away with just the one.    

In a few minutes I had fashionable, vampy nails that would have looked like I came straight from the manicurist…if I weren't such a nail biter.

Get Yours: Although stocks in the main retailers sold out, you can still find this polish on eBay.
