Magnetic nailpolish has been one of the big crazes this fall, and I finally got my hands on a couple of bottles of magnetics from nails inc. There are three colors available from this brand, a grey called Trafalgar Square, a purple called Houses of Parliament and a gold called Big Ben. I got the first two, because I’m not a big fan of gold polish.
These magnetic polishes are really easy to use, built into the (removable) outer cap is a magnet that creates a wavy pattern when held close to your wet nail. For these swatches, I did two coats. First a “base coat” which I did like I would a normal polish, then I did the second coat and used the magnet on each nail before I went on to the next. You don’t have to hold the magnet over the nail for long, five seconds is more than enough.
First we have the grey Trafalgar Square, here I’ve used the magnet as described in the instructions on the bottle (resting the little groove on top of the cap along the cuticle). This creates a pattern of arcs on the nails.
Houses of Parliament is the purple polish, and for this swatch I held the magnet perpendicular to the nail. This creates a wavy pattern from cuticle to tip.
I’ve bought these polishes from Beauty Bay, and they are NOK 85,70 a piece. Shipping was reasonable and quick.
Which pattern do you like best? Have you tried any magnetic polishes yet?
