This week Andrea Beck’s inspiration melts with shiny metals, so today in my beauty corner I’m going to bring you in the mood with magnetic nail polishes.
The amazing and vibrant magnetic nail polishes feature a “magic” formula with metallic particles that create a unique effect reacting with a special magnet. There are different kinds of magnet, depending on the brand for different patterns on nails.
How to use it – Apply the magnetic nail polish as you normally do with a traditional polish and, before it dries, put the magnet over the nail and hold it for 5-10 seconds… and that’s it!
Remember: the magnet works only while the polish is still wet, so it’s better to apply one nail at a time. More the magnet is close to the nail, better will be the definition of the chosen pattern but be careful: do not touch the polish!
Once the magnetic polish is dried, then you can apply the topcoat for a more brilliant effect. Honestly I don’t apply it because it usually spoils the design, though the magnetic polish is perfectly dry.
If you don’t like the magnetic effect on each nail, you can do a magnet accent nail: thanks to the metallic finish, these polishes are beautiful to wear as a traditional polish too.
