Pure Ice Magnetic Attraction

Here we have two coats of Pure Ice Magnetic Attraction. Good formula that covers well in just one coat. It dries super fast which is normally fantastic but I had a hard time getting the magnet positioned correctly before it was already too dry to make the stripes. I still love the idea of magnetic polishes though. 
Thanks for reading!

Layla Magneffect Black Metal

I won my first magnetic polish from the lovely ladies at The Polish Lab. Thanks ladies!! Magnetic polishes are very exciting to me. It's just such a cool idea.
This is 1 coat of Layla Magneffects in Black Metal. The polish applies very easily and covers in one coat. I had a bit of trouble with the magnet; I think my nails are just too rounded to get good stripes. I can only get them in the middle or off to one side. I don't think it has anything to do with the product though. It just doesn't work well for my particular nails. I'm passing this one on to a very happy friend with much smaller nails & I fully expect it to work great for her. A starburst pattern magnet is probably much more suited to my nails.
You'll have to vary your routine a bit when using a magnetic polish. You want to do one nail at a time & then quickly use the magnet. I also recommend skipping the topcoat as it can blur the pattern. The polish dries fast so it wasn't a problem for me to skip the topcoat.
 
I hope magnetic polishes continue to catch on & that we have a wide variety to choose from in the coming year!
