Swatch and Review: BPS Chameleon Magnetic UV Gel Polish

Today I have a new BPS product on the blog. 
I've loved magnetics since they got revamped post 2012. They are so much stronger in effect with all the works like duo-chrome and holo etc. So I wanted to review this polish from one of the most affordable websites of nail art things.

Base: BPS Chameleon Magnetic UV Gel (link; shade 21; item #40294)
Top coat: BPS no wipe gel top coat

The site specifically says to use a black base underneath it but I wanted to try how it looks without the black base. So as normal I used 2 coats of this polish, applied magnetic and cured it in UV light after each coat. The effect is a nice duo chrome turquoise to dark blue/purple shade. The magnetic particles give it a distinctive olive-gold line that diffuses softly across the nails. The polish comes in a 10ml white coated bottle with slightly thick consistency as UV polishes are. It applies smoothly on nails without any streaks and spreads evenly. I used my own cat's eye magnet (it is not included in package) after each coat and cured it. So after 2-3 coats the magnetic effect became very prominent. On my ring finger I have applied 3 coats to just test the density of the colour but it was almost quite opaque in 2 coats itself and doesnt change much when using 3 coats. It lasts long as it is gel polish but clearly I don't have the patience and need to change my polish every 2-3 days. 
(I will update here with a pic of this polish with a black base soon
Update: Below is a pic of the polish with a black base and UV topcoat. The black base really brings out the shine and shimmer in the polish and clearly shows the duo chrome effect better)

This polish retails for $3.99 for 10ml and is available in 12 shades. (link)

Here's a macro look at the polish: love this pic!!
