Sally Hansen has introduced magnetic nail polishes that create a 3D nail art effect. The polish was developed with metallic particles to create a pattern on the nail using magnetic forces. As the magnet is held over the nail, the iron fillings in the formula gravitate toward the magnet forming the pattern design secretly hidden in the magnet.
Here’s how it works: Apply one coat of base coat. Shake Magnetic Nail Color to activate. Remove overcap with magnet and set aside. Apply one coat of Magnetic Nail Color to all 10 nails and let dry.
Apply a thick second coat of color to one nail and immediately hold the built-in magnet over the nail. Rest the guide just below the cuticle without touching the wet nail polish. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat for all 10 nails and let dry. Finish with a top coat.
The new polish is available in Ionic Indigo, Red-y Response, Kinetic Copper, Silver Elements, Golden Conduct, Electric Emerald, Graphite Gravity, Polar Purple
Cost is $9.99 at drugstores and mass merchandisers.
