I know that magnetic polishes have been around a while now. I just never caught the bug before - that is, until they showed up at Walgreens! I had seen the Sally Hansen polishes before but I didn't expect a huge rack of Nabi magnetic polishes. I picked up a few, so I thought I'd try them out here.
The Nabi polishes don't seem to have names. They also have a very strong chemical smell and a very weak magnet. There's also no guard to keep the nail from touching the magnet. Even with those drawbacks, the colors are really pretty - look how rich that burgundy is and how gorgeous that coffee color is!

The other polish I tried was good old reliable Sally Hansen - that's Red-dy Response on the thumb and Silver Elements on the ring finger.
They're lovely polishes. The magnet works well - although there is only one magnet design. There are little guards on the top of the polish to keep your nail from touching the magnet.
I expected that these would be lovely and I wasn't disappointed. I wish I could buy more but they're $8.99 per bottle - a little steep for my polish budget, especially when you want to buy all 8 of them!
Anyway...there's my foray into magnetic polish.
I don't know why I was so late to catch this trend - the 3D look that the magnet creates is so intriguing. There's also something so cool about seeing the change in the polish as you apply the magnet.
The other thing I like is that this will be perfect "vacation" polish - it's pretty and interesting and all in one bottle, perfect for holiday traveling!
Well - if you've been eyeing any of those polishes, I hope this post helps!
See you soon, Konaddicts!
