Anyway, this is my very first 17 nail varnish. This is the Boots own brand, and I had quite a bit of their makeup when I was in my teens (way back in the dark ages!) I did want to give magnetic polish another go, and there was no way I was giving any more money to Nails Inc for one.
This is 17 Magnetized Nail Polish in Green. They also sell a silvery grey one, and a dark blue one, both of which look ok, but green is far more my thing. I would really like a dark burgundy red one! This was £5.99, significantly cheaper than the Nails Inc equivalent.
You apply the polish as normal, then immediately hold the lid, containing a magnet, over the nail. The polish dries very quickly, so this has to be done pretty quickly, or it's too late! I found that one coat had a pretty good effect, but that two coats was far better, with a far more defined difference between the two colours. I did one normal coat which I allowed to dry, then did one nail at a time with the magnet. The initial colour is a greyish green with some shimmer to it, but the magnet turns it into curves of black and brighter green.
I love how it looks in the sunshine!
(It's nice to have sunshine for once!)
