Nails Inc. Magnetic Nail Polish

post #1 of 39
Thread Starter 

Have you ladies heard of the new magnetic nail polishes by Nail Inc.

 

"A revolutionary magnetic nail lacquer used to create stunning 3D nail art designs in three chic metallic shades."

 

This all new formula has been developed with metallic particles to create a pattern on the nail using magnetics. (Built into the polish cap) As the magnet is held over the nail, the iron powder in the formulation gravitates toward the magnet forming a cool pattern.

 

What do you ladies think of this new trend, is it something you want to try?

It comes in Gold, Chrome and Purple!

I haven't seen their line but LCN came out with some earlier this year and there was another company that did a while back as well.

The magnetic thing isn't new...I know I saw something about it a few years ago, except it made more shapes? I seem to remember something like a star or something.

Oh I found it. Lancome had one a while back that created stars via magnets on your fingers, called Le Magnetique. (L'Oreal, a child company of Lancome, released a limited edition European version of pretty much the same thing too) Never the less, still very cool (although the old photos I remember seeing of the originals must have used stronger magnets, since the patterns were just so much bolder back then than the pictures I'm seeing now)

I've heard of other companies doing this before, and I've been dying to get one.  Thanks Katana, maybe now it will be a little more in my reach!

I have not tried these but I tried the Layla ones.  They are super fun!

They're really cool looking but it's just such a specific look that I don't know if I would want to buy an entire bottle of it. I'd rather just get some new Shatter so I could switch up the colour combos when I get bored.

 Was wondering if any of you all have ever tried this? I love the color, and the marbled effect it gives so I was wanting your thoughts before I purchase. thanks

This is the polish that inspired this thread.

I know a few girls here have tried magnetic polish of other brands, I think this new one may be the only one around now as the other ones were available a few years back.

Let us know how you like it if you do try it out!

I've been meaning to try magnetics, but haven't had the chance to get my hands on them yet. They are on my wishlist though. Wish there were more magnet shapes...

I recently picked these up from Nailsinc.com and I have to say I absolutely love them, I've never tried magnetic polishes before so I was literally staring at my nails for hours after applying completely bewildered by how cool the effect is, you really have to see them in real life though, as you move the nails the effect seems to ripple giving them a 3-dimensional effect, its so gorgeous! :D Can't recommend these enough! They also wear really well (4 + days without chips) and dry very quick!

I ran across a mention of this stuff about a month back and have been really interested in trying them since seeing them. Love the purple and the black or dark grey. The first one not so much. I'm always layering my polishes to get the colors I really want so this would be a nice change from that. Will have to check out that website, for sure. Do they shipping worldwide? Or only the US?
post #18 of 39

They're a UK brand and I think they only deliver to UK from their official site, but I'm pretty sure there are international stockists like sephora who stock them

post #19 of 39
I saw my Sephora just got them in - I don't know, I think they look silly.

OMG so cool and badass!

Wow Diava those are incredible!!!

post #23 of 39

I honestly prefer my L'Oreal Star Magnet one to this (or Lancome's Magnetique,) though unfortunately, both were limited edition and not available in the US so I only managed to get my hands on one bottle :'(

that's gorgeous!!! Surely you can use the same magnet with a different magnetic polish??the nails inc magnet is designed to just do the stripes, although you can also do them vertical, I'm going to have to play around with it a bit :) I do wish they'd created different magnet shapes for each polish, that would have been awesome!!!

post #26 of 39

I wish they made magnetic particles (?) to add to any nail polish

post #27 of 39

Oh THAT would be fun if they did.

post #28 of 39

Good morning everyone!  I found this fun tutorial on how to make your own magnetic polish using polishes you already own!  Here's the link:  http://www.bellasugar.com/How-Make-Magnetic-Nail-Polish-Home-20448927.  I haven't tried it, but it makes sense to use the iron shavings for it.  I did notice that they used a light colored polish, so the shavings were noticable.  I haven't tried this, yet, but I think my daughter and I might whip some up this weekend. I'll post some pics of our endeavors.

post #29 of 39

I hope we all get to see your DIY effort with the magnets. . .  I wander what it will look like when done with my "I'm Not Really a Waitress" red by OPI???! 5.JPG

post #30 of 39

Oh Marilyn, that dark red shade would look spectacular with the contrast (IMO).  I have a red similar to that, so I'll have to try it out and see if is noticable or not.
