Have you guys had the pleasure of having a magnetic manicure yet? Well in one of the latest nail trends, magnetic polishes allow for a unique, 3-D finish and people are falling in love with it! Thanks to Influenster, I was able to try my hand at this magnetic nail polish trend myself. In my Influenster Summer Beauty Voxbox, I received Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color in Graphite Gravity.
The Application. Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color is to be applied precisely in these two steps:
1. Apply 1 coat of base coat. Shake Magnetic Nail Color to activate. Remove overcap with magnet and set aside. Apply 1 coat of Magnetic Nail Color to all 10 nails and let dry.
2. Apply a thick second coat of color to 1 nail and immediately hold the built-in magnet over the nail. Rest the guide just below the cuticle without touching the wet nail polish. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat for all 10 nails and let dry. Finish with top coat.
Tips to remember when applying this polish:
-Make sure the second coat of polish is thick and even. If not, the 3-D effect may not be as detailed as you would like.
-When using the magnetic guide, place it so that the magnet can be evenly applied onto the nail.
-Be extremely careful when resting the guide below the cuticle. You do not want the magnet to get stuck to the nail!
My thoughts: After testing the Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color for the first time, I have fallen in love with it. It is unlike any other nail polish I've tried and is such a drastic change from the pink polishes I normally wear. The 3-D effect definitely stands out, as many people have complimented my nails in my short time of wearing it. The application was easy enough, though I had to re-do a couple of nails because I let the magnet get stuck to the wet polish. And at the price of $9.99, I would definitely purchase this product again. This bottle, however, is 0.31 fl. oz. so I think it would last me for some time. If anything, I may just grab another bottle to try out one of the other shades. Overall, I'm very impressed with this polish!
