Months after the launch of magnetic polishes, I've finally got round to trying it out for myself:
This particular one is from 17 and comes with a detachable magnet included in the lid. To start off with, I just painted my nails like normal. I found that one coat wasn't quite enough, but because there was a magnet involved, I could messily dab the polish onto my nails to make it more opaque. I then quickly hovered the magnet over the wet polish. This neatens up any streaks and creates the characteristic magnetic stripes.
On the whole, the magnet was very easy to use. When I first tried it, I did accidently smudge a couple of nails, but by the end of the manicure, I'd gotten the hang of it, and the effect was quick and easy to create.
The 17 polish was quick drying, had a nice metallic finish to it, and it lasted for a good few days without chipping. Overall, a fun polish to have in my collection and one that got lots of wear over the festive period.
Are you a fan of the magnetic effect? What did you wear over the festive period?
