There have been a ton of magnetic nail polish launches recently that I was actually pretty close to swerving this one by Nails Inc tonight, however I am so glad I didn’t as this was the first time I actually sat down and got my nails painted using the magnetic polish and.. WOW. Check them out.Actually couldn’t love them more! Admittedly this has been applied with an experienced hand (i.e. not mine) but it looked pretty simple as I was observing the manicurist at work. From appearances, once your nails have been painted you simply roll the magnet over the magnetic nail varnish in the direction you want the pattern (obviously not touching the varnish), and voila! Pretty magnetic design.Of the three magnetic colours launching the shade I picked was Houses of Parliament, the other two shades are a silver (Trafalgar Square) and a gold (Big Ben). Not only are the colours all lush, but £1 of the £13 varnish will directly go to The Prince’s Trust charity.
Can’t vouch at all for lasting power, ease of use, et cetera et cetera et cetera, but it looks amazing and I’m besotted with them! The vampy purple colour actually really goes with my scary goth long nails (I did not intend for them to get that long! Will cut them next week, promise!). Here’s a quick snap I took on the way home with my rubbish camera phone.. The colour looks really gorgeous and inky here.
As I mentioned there are so many magnetic nail varnishes out at the moment, and I still need to test them (including this one) properly and will do so in one large comparative post, however just wanted to get this one up as thought my nails looked so purdy!
