Hey guys! I've never tried magnetic polishes before and, surprisingly, I found the Color Club ones here back when my mother-in-law was visiting and snagged a few to try. If you haven't used them before there is a learning curve I think. To use them you polish like normal but on the last coat, while the polish is still wet, hold the magnet above the nail without touching it. On the Color Club it says to hold it for 15 seconds but I have found the longer you hold the magnet over the polish while it dries the better the design turns out. I held mine for about 30 seconds. It also helps to keep both hands very steady or it could blur the design. The Color Club magnet has a ridge on it to place near the cuticle so you can rest the magnet to help keep it steady and from touching the nail.
Steel Of The Night is a dark gunmetal grey in the bottle but once you use the magnet the black appears. These do dry insanely quick so you need to be fast. The only issues I had was on a few nails the magnet didn't seem to work on the sides and had to redo them. I'm not sure if it dried too quick, my nails are too curved or if it was just the magnet. The magnet is a bit narrow so if you have wide nails it might be a problem too. Also, all the magnets for these polishes are the same so there isn't much variety.
Picture is two coats with topcoat. Be careful when you add topcoat with these, if you apply too much pressure it can easily drag the design.
On my ring finger here I turned the magnet sideways for a different design so you can use it any way you just won't have the ridge to help you keep it steady.
Below is Steele Of The Night before the magnet.
Have you tried any magnetic polishes yet? Which is you favorite?
