Magnetised Nail Polish: 17 Edition

Tuesday, September 10, 2013 Alexa W 0 Comments

Hey guys,

Recently I tried out this 'Magnetised' Nail Polish from 17 which I believe is an exclusive Boots brand. The effect intended is the waves you can see on the lid, although my first try didn't exactly turn out that way!

 17 Magnetised Nail Polish *New* in Blue

 I had a little accident with my thumb, and holding the magnet too close. Be careful with this part!
Rimmel 5 in 1 as my base and top coat. It's a lovely multi-purpose product.

From afar the effect looks really cool, like a smudged dual toned color. It applied and dried very easily and at first it just looks like a regular shimmery navy but as soon as it is applied you have to hold the magnet as close to the nail without actually touching it.

I found this a tad tricky as it kept touching the polish and I had to reapply, and I also had to do layer by layer across the nail as otherwise the effect wouldn't be as intense.

For £6 I would recommend this polish, you'll eventually get the hang of it with practice and the first try may be a little disappointing unless you have that talent for nail art. I believe 17 came out with other colors of this but I had a 50% off voucher for this. The magnetic aspect is very subtle but I kind of like it that way, it reminds me of the ocean and waves.

What's your favourite nail art trend?
