Oooh, oooh, oooh, I'm so excited to share with you my new magnetic nail polishes. I bought these magnetic polishes off an Austrian website - http://www.nailart-und-mehr.de/. The down side is that I bought five of these polishes, but they only sent me four. I have sent them an email about it so will wait and see if they come through with the goods.
This post shows two of the colours, black and night blue. I also bought 'russet' which is red, bottle green and purple. The green is the one they didn't send!
For those of you that don't know about magnetic nail polish, what you do is paint your nail, and then, working very quickly, while the polish is still wet, you position a magnet over the nail and hold it still for about 10 seconds. When you move the magnet, the polish has set with a fancy pattern in it.
I bought both their magnet designs, which you have to purchase separately. One creates lines and the other a starburst. I couldn't decide which to do for this mani, so I did both.
Here is a close up of my index finger.
And close up of the thumb.
I actually wore the blue polish first, and below is my first attempt at doing the magnets, not great, but you get the idea. I was a little excited and rushed the whole application.
The application of these polishes was great. They dry really quick, which can make it tricky to get the magnet in place quickly enough. Even without using the magnet these were beautiful colours. A really great nail polish!!
I'll post the other colours when I wear them and will photo the magnets too.
So what do you think, do you just love this idea like me, or are they a bit gimmicky.
