My 11yo has been asking me about these. She's convinced it turns your nails into magnets. she's not right is she?

suebfg Fri 21-Sep-12 20:46:43

I don't think so grin. I'm amazed though by how good it is - it hasn't chipped in days and looks like I've spent the afternoon in a nailbar

Which make have you used? Have seen some by loreal and Barry m. Just wondering which to try.

suebfg Fri 21-Sep-12 21:13:08

I have the Barry M one and it's fantastic.

How is it magnetic? I've never heard of them!

There are magnetic particles in the nail varnish and there's a magnet in the lid of the nail polish. So you paint your nails, hover the magnet over the top and voila, you get a pattern on your nails.

Check out some of the images below ...

It really shouldcome with instructions. grin

Never knew about the magnet in the lid. No wonder I can't get the nice effects on dd's nails.

suebfg Fri 21-Sep-12 22:26:08

I think there are instructions on the side of the polish ...

Baaaa baaaaa another s and b influenced purchase. Off to boots while dd at dancing today then

ElizaDoMore Sat 22-Sep-12 07:37:36

I have a No 17 in grey and it gives an ikat finish. grin

fuckwittery Sat 22-Sep-12 09:06:54

you tube video of how to do it

I was AMAZED when I watched this the other day, but soon realised I don't actually like the pattern. I don't like shimmer or glittery nails, patterny magnetic stuff no different!

TheBonkeyMollocks Sat 22-Sep-12 09:08:44

I want some but I can't find them anywhere!!! sad

Mumelie Sat 22-Sep-12 11:48:51

Oh, will be looking out for this today. Grey polish was on my shopping list already...........honesthmm

DameEnidsOrange Sat 22-Sep-12 12:11:49

BarryM in boots - buy 2 save a £1.

I got the purple/grey and a reddish one.

I didn't realise the pattern caps are interchangeable too

DollyTwat Sat 22-Sep-12 12:23:25

Hmm that looks like the effect I get by smudging mine grin

valiumredhead Sat 22-Sep-12 13:51:27
