Magnetized Green by 17
You are looking at the most difficult-to-find nail varnish I have ever owned. I went to 6 different Boots stores today trying to find any of the 17 range’s Magnetized polish. I went all over London and even braved Oxford/Regent/Bond Street on a Sunday afternoon. Nothing. As a last resort I tried the new Westfield at Stratford and they had 3 polishes left! VICTORY!!
The basic principle of this polish is that it contains tiny magnetic particles. Inside the bottle lid is a magnet which you use to create patterns in the polish. Such a clever idea and I’ve been wanting to try some for ages.
The range includes a gunmetal grey, a blue, a lilac and teal (which is the one I found). The polish itself is gorgeous: a beautiful colour, even before you use the magnet, and it applies beautifully.
The picture below shows the lid of the polish (which detaches from the brush so you’re not waving that around). The magnet is on top and there is a small curved rest at one end to help you keep your fingers steady.
After reading a few reviews online I picked up some tips. Apply the polish one nail at at time. While the nail is still wet, rest your finger on top of the rest at the end of the magnet and hold it over for 10 seconds. I found that I had to move my nail around to get the pattern to cover the whole nail, but this may just be as I have quite curved nails.
Obviously I used the other hand to hold the magnet over the nail, but for the purposes of the photos this is how close you hold it to the nail.
I absolutely adore this nail varnish and it was definitely worth traipsing all over London to find it.
In Boots, it is on an introductory offer at £4.99 but will go up to £5.99 after this ends. Bargain!
Total nail varnish crush.
