I had been wanting to try magnetic nail polish for the longest time. Now, following on the heels of the crackle phase, they seem to be flooding the market. I tested one of the first I saw, Nails Inc. Magnetic Polish, which Sephora carries. This is Trafalger Square, a dark metallic chrome.
It’s important to apply the magnet soon after you paint your nail, because the polish dries quickly. The magnet is in the cap, and it has a small curved tray that you fit on your cuticle to hold the magnet in place. I did one nail at a time to ensure that the polish wouldn’t dry on me. I loved the results! The chevron stripes create a tiger eye appearance, with the color shifting depending on the angle of the light.
What are your favorite magnetic nail polishes? I am tempted to try the new Color Club magnetic glitter shades!

Jewelry, art, music… and makeup! For me, these are all natural ways of expressing myself. The face is a canvas waiting to be enhanced, just like a blank sheet of sterling silver or clay. Here you’ll find an archive of my makeup looks and tutorials. For about 2 years I did my best to never repeat the same makeup (!!), so as you can imagine there are quite a few! I’m happy to answer any questions about how I created a look, product recommendations, etc.
From time to time I have makeup sales, which will also be posted here.
