Nails Inc. Magnetic Polish Trafalgar Square

Wednesday, December 7, 2011

My sister generously lent me this polish.
(Read: our interaction went like this-
 Me: I'm using this.
 Sister: Fine
Gracious indeed.)

I've been fascinated by magnets. And polishes. It seems only natural that the combination of the two knocks my socks off. I love the sort of extra dimensional, tiger's eye-ish thing going on here. You've probably already read about these polishes, so I'll keep it short and sweet.

I've learned a few things:
1. On top of a dark base such as a basic black creme, you get the full blown effect.
2. A slight rolling motion instead of just holding the magnet straight in front of your nail will make a larger, more even design.
3. Be patient. Or you'll end up like me, who did not realize that I should not treat this polish like my regular lacquers. I used Seche Vite right away, and it caused some streaking in the design, with the exception of my pinky.

Nails Inc. Magnetic Polishes are $16 at Sephora.

And that is all I have to say about that. (I watched Forrest Gump the weekend before last, Gump-isms are stuck in my head.)

Have a good night!
