I was in two minds of what polish to wear for this particular “metallic nails” challenge – a foil polish or a magnetic one – and finally I decided on a magnetic polish #09 from Golden Rose.
Golden Rose is a Turkish brand and its products are very popular here, mainly due to their wide range of colors and textures and fairy cheap prices. I got this one for less than $3.
The polish contains metallic particles that create a pattern on the nail under the magnetic influence. Here’s a pic of the polish and its magnet:
To create the magnetic 3D effect, you need to apply 1 coat of the polish to one nail, and immediately hold the magnet over the nail. It’s important to do this quickly while the polish is still wet. The magnet should be held very close to the nail for about 5 seconds. I noticed that the closer to the nail you hold it, the stronger your pattern will be.
Obviously, you repeat the process with each nail. I know it sounds time-consuming but in reality it isn’t. It took me perhaps 5-10 minutes longer than a simple manicure.
1 coat of Golden Rose Magnetic 09:
The magnetic effect sure looks interesting to me and I’m glad I tried it, but I don’t think I’ll be using magnetic polishes often. Next time I want to try a termo nail polish or a scented one.
This was it for today, I hope you’ll find this helpful! Take care and till next time :)
