Yeah, you’re getting another magnetic manicure. I’m just an impatient bish and wanted to share my current mani with you straight away. I’m going to revisit each of these and share swatches with you but for now, let’s get to this mani!

I saw this tutorial from yagala (I can’t get enough of her nails!) and wanted to try it out. I have a hellaton of magnetic polishes (because I am obsessed, obviously) so the hard part was narrowing down a few that looked good together before and after applying a magnet.

Even though the original mani from yagala was to create a galaxy effect, I feel like my mani had a more “patchwork quilt” effect. I’m high-key in love with how my pinky turned out. 😀 It’s almost like a 3D effect on my nail! Next time I do this, I think I’m going to try blurring between polishes better so they blend better than they did.
