Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color - Red-y Response and Electric Emerald swatches!

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color - $9.99 - in 8 shades: Red-y Response, Iconic Indigo, Golden Conduct, Kinetic Copper, Graphite Gravity, Electric Emerald, Silver Elements, Polar Purple - infused with metallic particles that move when exposed to the specially designed magnet to create a 3D effect.

They work pretty much the same as other magnetic polishes - apply the polish and then place the magnet over the polished nail and this allows the iron fillings to be drawn-out toward the magnet to form a unique and artistic design in seconds.

Available in June across Canada.
 Red-y Response
Electric Emerald

Magnetic polishes are usually kind of wasted on me as they involve some kind of fancy design that my nails are too small for it to fit on so it just ends up looking weird and disjointed. The Sally Hansen design is a wave effect which you obviously don't get the full effect of on my nails, instead it gives it an interesting tortoiseshell kind of deal which I quite like! 

The other thing I like about this polish - the cap actually comes off independently of the rest of the bottle which makes it much easier to perform the magnet step. As well, the lip on the cap you rest your finger on while magnetizing is higher so accidentally grazing my finger with the magnet was not as big a problem as it has been for me with other brands!

  1. I can't wait to try this new line when it hits stores here!

  2. I love the fact that they look marbled!

  3. I've been excited about these, but now not too sure.
    The promo pictures make the waves seen far stronger...
    Maybe just these two colours~
    Anyway thanks for your insight on them^^

    1. My tiny little nails are not the best display for fancy stuff like this - patterns never appear the same as they do on people with normal sized nails!

      Best, Lisamarie
