Sally Hansen Magnetic nail polish = Amazing!

Sally Hansen Magnetic in Electric Emerald
Happy St. Patty's Day weekend! I was told I had to wear green to work on Friday, so of course, my nails had to be green too! I saw Sally Hansen Magnetic at CVS and was intrigued. I'm so glad I took a chance on this polish. It's great quality and so easy to use! I can't believe how easy it was to create this nail design.

I first applied a clear base coat and then one thin coat of color. For the third coat I put on a THICK coat of color on one nail, and then held the magnetic cap over the nail for 10 seconds. Voila! Waves magically appeared (okay, I know it's not magic, it's science!). The picture doesn't do this nail polish justice. It's kind of like a hologram when you look at it in person. I did each nail one at a time and used the magnet immediately after I painted each nail.

The magnetic cap comes off separately from the brush, and has a 'guide' on it so you know how to place it on your nail. I can not stress enough how easy this was to do. The KEY is for the third coat to be thick, so the magnet can move the polish. I applied a quick dry top coat so the thick coat wasn't too much of a pain to dry.

I was out the door in 30 minutes after applying this nail polish + quick dry top coat. I definitely want this in more colors. Love it! 


  1. I wish I saw this earlier. This would have been perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Love this color and that is such a cute design.

  2. Hope you had a fun St. Patrick's Day Ann!

  3. I've tried cracked nail polish and din't like the effect! This looks promising! I'll try this one since the cracked nail polish was a total failure.

  4. OMG. This is so cool!! I wanna try it, is the magnetic cap included in the package of Sally Hansen Magnetic nail polish as well as with the brush? If yes, then I would definitely rush into the store to buy one of these. I would love to have the color of yellow/red since it's spring. It would be perfect for this type of weather.

  5. Hi Knightina - everything is included! The magnet is in the top of the brush. It's super easy!
