A few weeks ago, I reviewed another magnetic polish from Nails inc. in this post. Please follow that link if you’re interested in application description and tips. But I would like to say again, application is very simple and there’s only one extra step involved to get this fun nail design! Totally worth it.
House of Parliament begins as just a darker toned metallic purple polish. After the magnetic is applied, black color waves appear. The magnetic also creates almost a 3D effect that allow the waves to look as though they are moving or shifting when you move your fingers. It’s very cool. I do somewhat wish that the effect of this magnetic polish was a bit more noticeable. The black with the already dark purple isn’t much of a contrast. Similar to last time, I got a very uniform “color wave” effect on each nail and they look very coherent and form a unified look.
The formula and application including the magnetic for is very easy. The formula of these magnetic polishes is very smooth and easy to apply and you only need two coats each time. Sure holding the magnetic over the polish is another step in applying your manicure, but it’s simple and creates something fun and unique that is very pleasing to the eye. I didn’t get great weartime from this polish though.
Where to Buy: Sephora / Sephora.com / $ 16.00
These polishes are a bit pricey, but aside from that, do you like this polish trend? Do you think it’s something more popular American brands will catch on to? Like the seriously insane crackle phase? I personally like Trafalgar Square more color wise, but do like these polishes in general.
