Bags of Beauty Blog: 17 Magnetic Nail Polish!

I have been swooning over Magentic Nail Polishes for a while now but it was only the other day when I actually tried out one! When I recommend magnetic nail "art" people, they think its expensive- but it's really not! The Magnetized Polishes by 17 Cosmetics retail at £5.99 and the magnet is part of the bottle.

It met my expectations in terms of presentation as I have seen a few adverts for Magnetic Nail Polish and I loved the look of them. At first when I used the polish, it didn't work! And this may have also been the case for some of you guys too. But the trick is to paint a thick layer of the nail polish- or paint a thin layer to get coverage of your nail and then a thicker second coat to get the magnet to work!

I love the colour of the 17 Magnetized Polish in Blue, which is a metallic ocean blue shade with bits of silver shimmer with a slight hint of purple/pink shimmer! 

It's pretty cool what the magnetized effect on your nail is! Darker stripes of the colour start to form with 17's Magnetized Polish and even though I applied a thick second coat, my nails managed to dry very quickly.

Before I tried this out, I was set out that this nail polish would end up clumping and gloopy (I blame the horrors of crackle nail polish!). But actually, the texture of the polish doesn't get clumpy at all and I don't need to use undercoat with it and it provides a really smooth application with a matte finish.

Have you tried this? What do you think of Magnetic Polishes?
