I am excited for today's post! I am showing you three of the new Sally Hansen Magnetic nail colors. This is my first time trying the magnetic polishes, and before I go any further I have to say that I didn't give them enough credit before. They are so cool!
Sally Hansen describes the process "as the magnet is held over the nail, the iron fillings in the formula gravitate toward the magnet forming the pattern secretly hidden in the magnet for an astonishing finish!"
How to Use
Step 1: Apply 1 coat of Magnetic Nail Color to all 10 nails and let dry.
Step 2: Apply a thick second coat of nail color to 1 nail and immidiately hold the magnet over the nail. Rest the guide just below the cuticle without touching the wet polish. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat for all 10 nails!
For swatches the first two pictures are shown under an Ottlite, and the third picture is indoor natural light (in front of my window) Ready to see these magnetic wonders?
Red-y Response is a shimmery berry color that changes to dark purple, almost black, when the magnet is held to it. Very pretty base color, and the effect is very obvious. No problems with formula on this one!
Golden Conduct is my favorite. It changes to darker coppery brown when magnetized, but the best part is that this beautiful shimmer comes out and it just absolutely glows. This one also had the best magnet effect, it's super gorgeous! Very easy to work with.
Graphite Gravity was my problem child. Don't get me wrong though, the problems were not that bad, it just wasn't as wonderful as the first two. I had trouble getting this one to magnetize, just look at my ring finger, I redid it a few different times thinking that maybe I waited too long and the polish dried, or the magnet wasn't close enough- but no, I tried it all and my ring finger just would not cooperate.
What I liked about these:
The paddle brush was small and super easy to work with, I barely needed any clean up.
These dry super fast
The magnet is built into the cap of the polish (removable) so it is all in one package!
Very easy to use, especially for a newbie like me
They come in a wide variety of colors
What do you guys think about these magnetic polishes? Have you tried any of these yet? If you have, which ones have you tried, and if not will you be picking any of these up to try out?
These retail for $9.99 and can be purchased wherever Sally Hansen cosmetics are sold.
