Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color – Red-y Response

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color – Red-y Response

I was lucky enough to get this for ~$3.00 after extra care bucks @ CVS + some other coupons a few weeks ago. :) Magnetic polish can get pretty expensive! I believe this bottle retails for ~$9-10 at CVS!

For those who are not familiar with magnetic polish, the polish basically has iron powder in the formula so when you hover a magnet over a wet coat on your nail it will form a fun design. :)

Magnetic Polishes + misc swatches

8 Jan

Wanted to post up some pictures of the magnetic polishes that I was playing with at Sephora :)

nails inc. Trafalgar Square (chrome) — middle finger

nails inc. Special Effects Electric Lane Holographic Glitter Top Coat — index finger

nails inc.  Houses Of Parliament (purple) — thumb

Aren’t they cool? :) For the magnetic polishes, you swipe a thick coat of iron-powder infused polish and quickly put the magnetic cap on top of the wet polish. I found it a little tricky not to let the cap touch my nail (and apparently others have this problem too since the tester cap had quite a bit of residue!) but after about 5-10 seconds, the polish will dry to a cool pattern! If you’ve ever seen cat-eye beads, the finish is kind of like that. They cost $16.00 a bottle at Sephora and come in 3 colors (chrome, purple, teal). I couldn’t bring myself to buy a bottle, hopefully there are dupes to be found!

Two more swatches:

Zoya – Neeka (not quite as glitter as it looks in the bottle, but still very pretty! this color is also darker than it appears in the bottle)

Essie – School of Hard Rocks
