There’s no doubt that over the past few years, nail effects and nail art have been enjoying a rather big moment.
Holographic, glittery, textured, beaded… the beauty market has experienced a boom in nail trends, some of which were never tried before.
Magnetic nail polish…? You may be asking yourself how does this work…? The science behind the magnetic mani is the magnetic particles that have been mixed into the polish that are able to create a pattern when they come into contact with a magnetic force. Most magnetic nail polishes have a magnet on their lid, as this is held over the newly painted nail, the iron powder in the polish gravitates towards the magnet to create the astonishing finish. As if by magic!
One of the first brands to foray into the magnetic field of nail patterns is Nails Inc, who came out with eight jewel-toned metallic colours, each of which boast their own magnet to create an individual magnetic pattern, from fishnet, to star, to wave, magnetic nail polishes attract so many opportunities to take your normal nail look to the next level!
Creating a magnetized mani at home couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is apply 1 coat of magnetic nail polish, then carefully hold the magnet close over each nail, taking care not to hit your wet nails. Hold the magnet over each nail for 1 to 2 seconds to create a mesmerising pattern. Then wait 10-15 minutes for your first coat to dry, and if you feel a second coat is needed, apply a second coat of your magnetic polish, and hold the magnet close to each nail like you did with your first coat. Wait until it is touch dry then apply a top coat to protect your newly metallized talons.
