I've had a fun busy day and what could make a day even better......Nails of course. I was too whooped to do any stamping or nail taping that I wanted to do but I did have this new magnetic polish to try out.
This is Nabi Magnetic Nail Polish. I picked it up at Walgreens for $4.99. There were a bunch of colors and 3 patterns, straight line, diagonal and chevron.
I wanted to choose the chevron since I thought the straight line was a little boring for my first time trying.
The color I chose was a purple. there is no name on the bottle but here is the number that was on the bottom:
I first put a base coat of OPI Nail Envy and then applied one coat of the polish to all nails.
Here is what it looked like with the one coat and magnet not applied:
Working on one nail at a time, I put another coat of the polish on and quickly held the magnetic cap close to the nail for a few seconds while the polish was still wet.
Unlike the China Glaze ones I read about that have a cuticle guard, these DO NOT. I did knock the cap into my nails a couple of times but once the top coat was on you could not notice it.
This chevron pattern was impossible for me to not get wavy but I think it is still cool.
So.......Here is the weird thing.
The pic to the left is without a top coat and the one to the right is after I put a coat of Seche Vite.
It went from a darker purple to more of a violety purple.
Even though it did not come out like I expected, I think it had a cool effect. I guess next time I will try the "boring" design and maybe get better results. ;-)
Have a awesome night everyone!
