Magnetic nail polish resistance?

I bought some lovely red magnetic nail polish but I seem to have one nail that is resistant to the magnet. Has anyone else had this problem? All of my nails have the pattern except for one. I have tried it three times on that nail and nothing happens. Has anyone else experienced this??

Nope, you're obviously an alien amongst us! How odd. I'm not sure how it could be you though, as the magnetic particles are in the polish.

I know. Really odd. Every other finger fine! Bought a grey one aswell so will try that to see if it works on my alien finger!

I've found my toe nails don't take as well as finger nails.

I found that my nails were good with the grey one but crap with the burgundy!
I have a colour allergy!

I bought Boots 17 grey and that works a treat but the Barry M Burgundy is rubbish - only got 2 nails to work! None of them worked on my DD - but put this down to tiny nails and no base coat. I did find that you needed a thin first coat and a thicker second coat.

I bough tthe Barry M blue one the other day, but haven't tried it yet.

Maybe that finger's already magnetic?

I am trying the grey Barry m one tonight will report back on my magic finger!

Tried the grey. None of them worked. What a waste if money!!!

The Nails Inc one I have is excellent - silver/grey. I haven't tried the Barry M ones. I would return it of it doesn't work properly. I did review the Nails inc one on my blog, if you're interested.

Went to big John Lewis in London today. An assistant tried some nails inc magnetic polish on me. It didn't work either. She looked embarrassed but then admitted they didn't work that well !! wink
