I had a ton of fun with this mani! My husband helped me use two magnets to create the design, based on this video I saw in a Facebook group. We found that if the magnets were attracting, they created the “s” shape; if they were opposing, they created a different shape.

I’ve been playing around with how I use the magnet with these magnetic polishes. With this mani, I hit the edge of the nail with the magnet, then went in at an angle by the knuckle.

Glittery magnetic mani with KBShimmer and China Glaze #vintagepolishfriday

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
KBShimmer Thrust Issues, 3 coats plus top coat. Formula was a little thick but still workable. I used this tutorial for using the magnet, it worked better on some nails than others. I think I just need to practice the technique.

China Glaze Mega Bite, 3 coats plus top coat. Sheer and thin but pretty!

I’m obsessing over my magnetic polishes I bought from KBShimmer so I paired it with an old China Glaze that I picked up awhile back from a local beauty supply store. Then I wanted to fancy it up a bit, so dug through my stash for this mix from Crystal Parade. I think it works quite nicely! Click through for more pictures. Don’t forget to check out #vintagepolishfriday at Of Life and Lacquer and on instagram!  Continue reading

Layered magnetic nail polish manicure with KBShimmer and OPI

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
OPI Turn On the Northern Lights, 2 coats and no top coat. Good formula, a little on the thin side. If I was just wearing this on its own, I would have done 3 coats. It’ll stain your nails!

KBShimmer So Jelly, 1 coat plus top coat. Use a light hand, basically float the polish on. I wish the unicorn pee shifting to green was easier to see on the nail. :/

KBShimmer Orbits and Pieces, 1 coat plus top coat. I used a light hand with this as well, since I wanted the beauty of So Jelly to shine through.

Afternoon everyone! Quick little post while the little ones sleep. 😀 I created this mani last night – I was trying to do something interesting with these four and Sinful Colors Transforming Top Coat in Concrete Jungle but couldn’t make something work. :/ Oh well! I rather thought this turned out like abstract flowers or something. If you’re interested in this technique, I did it similar to this tutorial from Yagala (pedicure warning!).
