Yesterday I decided to head to my local PoundWorld and I obviously checked out the beauty section. Amongst my search I found a great deal on the Sally Hansen Magnetic nail polish at only £1! I decided to pick up the diagonal design in the shade Cosmic Blue.
When I got home and opened the package I noticed that the nail polish was normal on the bottom but on the very top of the lid it looked like a little square which is the magnet. I thought the magnet was part of the cap for the nail polish but I was wrong as the top part comes off completely and underneath has the normal handle for a nail polish.
So I had never tried a magnetic nail polish previously so I wasn’t exactly sure of the whole process but I just painted a quite thick layer onto my nails to start. I then grabbed the magnet portion which I then noticed had a little notch on the top which you are meant to place touching your finger below your nail. This acts as a barrier so that the magnet will not touch your nail polish but instead hover over the top.
So I placed the magnet over the top of my nail making sure to press firmly on the portion touching my nail and held it there for around 5 seconds and when I lifted up the magnet and the results were amazing! It almost looks like you have done blue nail polish and then used a striper in silver to stripe your nails but much better! I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this but I also find that when I move my nail forward and backwards the line of silver actually moves up and down the nail. I am unsure why this happens but it does give a really cool effect.
After applying the nail polish to all of my other fingers I did actually notice that the process was much easier with one thin layer of nail polish instead of a thick gloopy layer. Also make sure that you only do use one layer because the polish needs to be wet while applying the magnet over the top so the particles can rise. I also love this polish as I have trouble doing nail art on my right hand as I am right handed, but I am able to still get a cool effect with this magnetic nail polish even on my right hand! This polish is great for people like me who tend to smudge my nail polish because this nail polish only took around 3 minutes to fully dry! And I can honestly say that after doing all of my 10 nails I actually smudged 0 of them :D, I did get a chip in one though because I bit my finger nail…
At PoundWorld they had many other colours and designs such as silvers and purples etc. I would also assume that you could use any of the magnetic designs on any of the Sally Hansen nail polishes so if you can find a few different colours in different designs you can easily switch them up for different designs! I love this nail polish and have been very pleased with it so if you would love to try out this nail polish too check your local PoundWorld first and see if you can catch a great deal too!
