Product information

Q & As

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by For the money it is a cheap & affordable manicure I was bought this for Christmas and was delighted to receive it. I hadn't tried the whole magnetic nail polish thing and was new to the concept. It was tricky to work out how to do it properly but the second time around it gets easier. Really effective nail polish and looks so professional. There are instructions on the lid which I now use, but it is down to personal choice how to create the pattern. Each nail can be unique of you can do the same thing, really versatile and allows you to create a salon quality manicure in the comfort of your own home! I would recommend using a base & top coat. Helps the nail polish last longer & avoid too much chipping. 13 January 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic product. For such a low cost off the shelf nail varnish, you can achieve a much more expensive manicured look. I would recommend this to ALL my friends. Very easy application if you follow the instructions. I have received many compliments since using this product. 07 December 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Trafalgar Square for ever - Idiot Proof!! Once you have mastered the techique this is a brilliant nail effect. Start with a base coat then one coat of the Magnetic and let it dry. Next the magic you have to do the nails one at a time as the varnish needs to be wet to move. Paint quite a thick coat and position the guide lip of the magnet on your cuticle holding the magnet as close as you can to the nail without touching it. You can actually feel the varnish move on your nail. Within a second or two you will have a lovely pattern of pale silver, black and dark silver in crescent shaped waves. The exact pattern depends on how curved your nail is. Repeat one nail at a time until all are down. If you don't get the pattern you want just apply another coat and try again. Finish with Top Coat for a glossy effect. 02 December 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not as effective as it might be... I bought this in the "Big Ben" colour ("gold"). You have to apply it quite thickly for the magnet to work, and must do each nail while it's still wet. I did obtain a slight banding effect, but it wasn't hugely noticeable, and looked as if I just hadn't varnished my nails very evenly. It was also quite a mucky, dirty gold. After a couple of days (it did wear OK), I decided it just didn't look very nice, and removed it. It might work better if you have really long nails (which I don't), as the pattern might show more on a larger area. 26 November 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! An amazing product and so simple to use. Give each nail one coat of varnish and then once dry, paint each nail individually and immediately hold the magnet over the nail while the varnish is still wet- the colour changes instantly to create the shaded effect. Highly recommended! 15 November 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by waste of money I purchased this nail polish and was most disappointed with it as I could not see any change in shade 11 November 2011
