Magnetic Nail Polish - The Aftermath


Pretty cool right?! Granted my manicure skills need some serious help, I really like the concept of this polish. A friend gave me this Nails Inc Magnetic Polish in Whitehall. She looked at it and said "I don't know what to do with this, but i'm assuming you would." Gladly, I accepted the free polish and went to work last night.

I applied to two coats, and let dry. Then, I applied a 3rd coat, and after each nail I hovered the magnet over the wet polish and it made this bitchin design! The first hand I did was a little all over the place - I was still getting used to the technique. The above photo is the second hand I did, and I think I started to get the hang of it. I was also a doofus and accidentally kept touching the magnet to my wet nail and had to reapply - ahhh!

I think the key to success is hovering the magnet over each nail as soon as you paint it. Each nail came out with a different design, but I think it looks kinda cool that way - similar to crackle or shatter polish. I want to try to again and do a better job since I think I got the hang of it now =)

What do you guys think?! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend!
