Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color in Polar Purple ($9.99)

This Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color came in my Summer Beauty VoxBox, complimentary of Influenster for review purposes. And I love it! I am a huge fan of Sally Hansen nail products anyway (the nail polish strips are incredible), so I was excited when they came out with this line of magnetic polish. 

Being the huge science nerd that I am (I spent the summer studying stable mixed-atom cluster structures), I went insane when magnetic polish came out on the market. I swooned over $20 bottles of magnetic polishes. I could never succumb to a $20 polish, but I bought a bunch of the "salon" quality brands when they emerged with magnetics. 

I have to say, this magnetic polish works the best of any of the others. Maybe they have a stronger, better magnet, but I think it's the formula. It goes on really smoothly and makes awesome waves in the polish. I found the trick was to do a normal layer (as in my picture), then do a thicker layer and make sure to immediately put the magnetic over it and hold it there for 10+ seconds. I put a top coat and it lasted me over a week with literally no chipping, even at the tips. It's such a pretty metallic purple that you could definitely just wear it without using the magnetic on it.

Now I need Red-y Response, which looks like a reddish fuchsia.
