I have to admit that I was sceptical about the new magnetic nail polishes and I was not willing to pay the prices from the premium brands (no names mentioned) for a polish that I may not even like. Boots 17 range have brought out a selection of four colours, Gun metal, Lilac, Blue and Teal at £5.99 per bottle and currently (as of 25th Sept) are 3 for 2.
I decided to order the Gun metal. Blue and Teal. When they arrived, my first thought was that the colours were lovely and almost glittery in appearance in the bottle. I couldn’t wait to try them so applied them over my existing polish.
Thumb has the Gun Metal, Index finger Teal and middle finger is the Blue (which has a lovely purple shimmer to it).
It is one occasion where I would suggest that 1 thick coat is better than 2 thin ones. As soon as you have painted the polish on, you need to hold the lid, which houses the magnet, over your nail. The lid has a small lip on which you can rest your cuticle area but i did find that it was slightly fiddly on the 1st attempt as it is very easy to bump your nail against the magnet. With these I counted fairly slowly to 10 to allow the pattern to develop.
The metallic sheen that you have left is really lovely and unusual. I think im going to be using these quite often.
