Ooh, I bought that magnetized one on a whim the other day, not tried it yet but it looks pretty cool from your pic! How close do you have to hold the magnet for it to work? I have visions of the magnet getting polish on it & smudging my nails...

I hit my nail once, if you look on the lid there's a curved bit of plastic, just put that bit by the nail bed. I found the longer you leave the magnet over it the more distorted the polish becomes.

I saw this the other day and was wondering if any of you ladies tried it! It looks awesome, I'll have to find me some.

Looks awesome! I just learned about that polish and definitely wanted to try it if I could find it, was wondering if anyone else had used it yet.

First try with 17 magnetized:

and then I tried mattifying it:

Pretty pleased with it, the magnet thing is easier than I was expecting, or perhaps I have a steadier hand than I thought!

Ok, so I haven't been on here for a long time. But I have done some recent things, so I am going to post some nails, sorry for the crappy web cam pics! ok here we go.

First off my Zombie-ish nails. layed down a layer of "Antique Blue" Followed by purple, then the pink, finally some black. The webcam distorted my lines, again, sorry.

And then I did these today, I got the text out of old court papers. On my pinkies are my area code 419 Middle finger Savage vs. (keep name confidential) thumbs say Justice, just thought it was neat. I have posted a tutorial for how to do this in the "tutorials, everything else" forum!

Ooooh, I contemplated matting mine, as I'm wearing it again. You've just convinced me to do it!

Model's Own Pinky Brown from the Beetlejuice collection. I've since mattified it and it looks even better.

I've been thinking the same! My nails need redoing anyone. Has anyone tried placing the magnet in a different place? See if it brings a different effect to the polish? I'm tempted to give it a go tonight and see if it works.

EDIT: I tried placing the magnet on the side of a nail instead of at the bottom, it looked pants.

Yeah in the uk but you can only get boots items delivered in store if you spend over £20 :( anyway I got the 17 magnetised Sunday the same day I got m&s rainbow which is like gosh 549 but not quite as wow.
The magnetised has all but rubbed off! I think it may be the worst staying power of a varnish I have ever experienced. M&s rainbow is pretty much still completely on, doing well and looking great. I should take a photo!

Current nails:

Collection 2000 "smash" in black (I also bought the white & the sliver) Rimmel in Azure blue. I've added a matte top coat, but you can't really tell.


Honestly, I thought I hated this crackle polish stuff, but now it's on I really like it. I also, only bought this as I wanted the croc effect from Barry M but no where near me had it & I needed new polish TODAY :lol:

Illamasqua Harsh, based on their Christmas look tutorial only I couldn't be bothered doing a black base first.

I'm obsessed with the colours for the rimmel lycra, just a shame that it isn't long lasting, it doesn't chip, it peels! Especially if I use a base coat, it's so weird :/
