Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color- more swatches

I was so excited to get a few more shades from the Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color collection to try. I noticed that several pairings looked somewhat similar in the bottle and I was interested to see how different they looked on the nail.
 Graphite Gravity, Silver Elements

 Kinetic Copper, Golden Conduct

So even though these shades appeared similar in the bottle, the effects were very different on the nail, especially once the magnet was applied.
 
As I said yesterday, I found the magnet pretty easy to use right off the bat and didn't have any problems with it. My nails are quite curved, so the design doesn't quite go to the edges of my nails since the magnet can't reach the sides, but I totally don't mind. I still think it's looks fabulous.

Here's the directions from Sally Hansen's website:

STEP 1: Apply 1 coat of base coat. Shake Magnetic Nail Color to activate. Remove overcap with magnet and set aside. Apply 1 coat of Magnetic Nail Color to all 10 nails and let dry. 

STEP 2: Apply a thick second coat of color to 1 nail and immediately hold the built-in magnet over the nail. Rest the guide just below the cuticle without touching the wet nail polish. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat for all 10 nails and let dry. Finish with top coat.

Disclosure: These four shades were sent to me for review purposes.

Pin It!
