I am still very much a noob when it comes to magnetic polishes but I would like to think that the first experience has taught me well enough and with a little help from Scrangie's 101, I am ready to take on these magnetic wonders again.
I say wonders because if you watch the polish 'transform' when you hold the magnet over it, it's quite adorable to see it all shuffle into place.
I had received 3 Nails Inc Magnetic Nail Polish from Watsons and boy am I glad to have more magnetic fun to play with!
The shades I received are Trafalgar Square, Whitehall and Houses of Parliament.
A very lovely choice of shades and all of which I would certainly pick out for myself.
Though of them all, somehow I was drawn towards the simple silver that is Trafalgar Square and just had to swatch it and have it on the minute I was done snapping shots of the bottles.
I'm sure most are rather acquainted to Nails Inc but nonetheless, here are bits of info about the product.
The magnetic portion is a cap above the actual nail polish's 'wand'. Very much like Chanel, Dior or other polishes where you remove the cap first and then work with a separate grip for application.
Somehow, with the metallic finish, I anticipated that the polish would start out sheer so I layered on 1 coat of it first with no hurry to work the magnetic magic.
As I had expected, it's better to lay down 1 thin coat first and leave it as is, sort of like a base.
It's still a gorgeous metallic silver nonetheless, yes?
So with the second coat, I did the whole magnetic frenzy of applying a coat and quickly holding the magnetic cap over.
I like how with the Nails Inc one (in comparison to Golden Rose which I featured before), there is a little 'stub' on the cap which allows you to rest that portion on the finger to comfortably hold the magnet over the nail.
I hope that makes good sense but I'm also certain most of you already know what I am talking about. If not, scroll up and look for the stubby bit on the cap and it would make sense!
So here's 2 coats with the magnetic wavy effect (no topcoat).
Due to the metalic finish of the polish, this turned out to be a royal pain to photograph. Mainly because I was trying to avoid a glare or sheen to better showcase the magnetic waves.
Pictures can't capture the dimension this polish possesses and it's honestly a lot prettier in person. Do check these Nails Inc Magnetic Polishes out at Watsons' My Vanity Box if you haven't already!
I've worn this manicure for a good week now (without a top coat) and only after Day 5 do I notice some tip-wear.
Guess that's sign for me to explore my stash and change my manicure!
Nails Inc is available at Watsons' My Vanity Box (at select stores), retailing at S$21.90 each.
Thanks for reading! Are Magnetic Polishes your thing or passing on this nail trend?
