Oh magnetic polishes. Sure, you're a cool gimmick but you're just not that interesting once the polish has dried. Your colours aren't particularly special (special to me either being sparkly or bright) and you're usually expensive too. That being said, I have a few of them but like to mix up the application. With my rolls of striping tape arriving in the mail last night, I couldn't resist combining the two. I've done it before, but I love how it turns out so too bad!
First up, two coats of a new Revlon polish I picked up the other day, Sweet Tart. It's a perfect pink bubblegum creme that happened to contrast nicely with Sally Hansen Magnetic Ionic Indigo. Once the Seche Vite on top of Sweet Tart was dry, I added the striping tape in the sunburst pattern. Looking at it, I should have either fully committed to the sunburst pattern or stuck with vertical stripes, but whatcha gunna do. Next, on went the magnetic polish, using the magnet before the polish dried. Off comes the tape (my favourite part) and viola!
The Verdict: I think I preferred my first go at this particular mani but I still like the colour combo here. I love the pink here.
