Nails inc have recently added three magnetic polishes to their range – Whitehall, which is the gorgeous teal colour I am showing below, Trafalgar Square – silver and Houses of Parliament which is metallic purple.
This was the first time I had applied magnetic polish by myself – you have to paint your nails with one coat of the polish – which is very opaque, my nails were completely covered with that one coat. You then go back and apply a generous amount of polish to a nail, then hold the magnet (which in this case is on top of the lid) over your nail for 10-15 seconds to let the magnet do it’s magic. It’s really rather easy – a lot easier than the finished effect looks!
I wore this polish to a catwalk show I was doing the make up for, and literally every person that came into contact with me asked me what I was wearing on my nails, wanted to see it closer, promised they were going to go and get some as they were so in love with it! I have to agree that it is pretty amazing. Not only is it metallic, but it has an almost holographic, iridescent quality to it – there is so much depth to be seen. My nails were left extremely glossy and were evidently very noticeable!
You can purchase these polishes at www.nailsinc.com for £13 each – nails inc are donating £1 from each sale of magnetic polish to youth charity The Princes Trust.
Have you tried magnetic polish yet? What do you make of it!?
