Nails Inc recently came out with magnetic polishes. Can I just tell you how absolutely floored i was to see these? Ive been dying to get my hot little hands on some magnetic polishes since I heard Essence was supposed to release a magnetic line in the US back in May. Those polishes were released elsewhere in the world but never in the US.
Trafalgar Square is a charcoal grey polish in the bottle but once you apply it and use the magnet it turns into a very dark grey if not black base and silver design. This is by far the coolest polish I've used. Watching the magnet work was really cool too. There is a little bit of a learning curve with these magnetic polishes.
Some things I learned are:
- Don't use too thick of a coat- the magnet can actually pull the polish off your nail
- I used a base color to use less product since these polishes are a little expensive
- The longer you leave the magnet over the polish the more pronounced the design is
- If you do not use a base color and you hold the magnet over the polish too long you will have thin/ sheer spots
The Nails Inc. polish was purchased on Sephora's website. The magnetic polishes retail for $16 but to me they're totally worth it. Don't forget Sephora's Friends & Family sale is going on right now.
