Nail Polish! One of my addictions!

     Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color in "Polar Purple"

     So I have to admit, I am definitely addicted to nail polish! Recently I was browsing around at my local CVS, waiting for my prescription to be refilled. I came across this cool looking display for magnetic nail polish. I had heard about the magnetic polish before and read about it on other blogs. I even own a different brand of magnetic polish that didn't was a nightmare in a bottle. Anyway, I decided to give it a try and needless to say, I LOVE it!
     First off, I have acrylic nails, so it may be different for people with natural nails, but I don't think it should vary much.   So the first step is putting on the first coat, make it kind of thin, because the second layer covers well. Make sure that you let the first coat dry before applying the second coat.
     Next you will apply the second coat. For best results, do this one nail at a time. I started with my thumb. Apply the second coat a little bit thicker than the first coat, then take the lid, which contains the magnet, and place it over your nail. To help align the magnet make sure that you put the plastic notch on the lid onto your cuticle. Because thumbs are a little bigger, you may have to rock the magnet from side to side slowly. All in all, you should leave the magnet on top of your nail for 15 seconds. That is how long it took me to get the best results. After finishing all of your nails, make sure to apply a good top coat. I love Out The Door, it dries quickly and leaves a nice shine.
     It does take some practice, and I have to admit to bumping my nails twice with the magnet, but once you get the hang of it, it is really easy.
