Marbled magnetic mani with OPI, Moon Shine Mani, KBShimmer

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
1 coat base
KBShimmer Insert Coin [June 2018 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats. I would say this is a burnished coin base and when a magnet is applied, a gold band appears and the base shifts from blue to purple.
Moon Shine Mani The One With All the Candy [February 2018 Polish Pickup Pack], 3 coats. I would say this is a multichrome red-orange-pink base with similar multichrome flakies.
OPI Check Out the Old Geysirs. A baby blue base with intense blue shimmer.

Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny QDTC, 1 coat

I don’t know what my obsession is with getting an oil slick puddle look on my nails but I keep trying it! This version is a magnetic version. I started with a black base, then used the distressed stamping technique with the different magnetic polishes. Then I used 1 thick coat of a non-quick-dry top coat and hit each nail with a magnet. Last, I used a QDTC to finish the look off.

And because I can’t leave well enough alone, I created some nail art to go with. 🙂 Continue reading

In the Magnetic Polish Lovers group on Facebook awhile ago, Kyong Lee (who always knocks it out of the park with her nails) shared marbled nail art and I was so stunned I just had to know how she created it!
