Sallly Hansen #GetMagnetic Contest Nail Color App

There’s a neat contest going on by Sally Hansen. Also, enjoy the following press release about their Magnetic line!

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color


THINK: Magnetic Appeal

WHAT THEY ARE: Create a gorgeous 3D nail art effect in just seconds using these magnetic polishes. This unique formula has been specially developed with metallic particles to create a pattern on the nail using magnetic forces. As the magnet is held over the nail, the iron filings in the formula gravitate toward the magnet forming the pattern/design secretly hidden in the magnet for an astonishing finish!

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 a top coat.

AVAILABLE SHADES: Ionic Indigo, Red-y Response, Kinetic Copper, Silver Elements, Golden Conduct, Electric Emerald, Graphite Gravity, Polar Purple

    Just call be a non lover of this entire trend. It’s really odd I think that no matter the brand, the color shade offerings are all really similar. My guess is there are only a narrow set range of hues that work when blended up to ‘do’ the magnetic thing. I have tried a couple brands – had OK results, but not great and passed mine off to the women’s shelter.

    • That’s good to know! I’ve only tried one so far and the results are mediocre for me. I’m hoping this brand will work out better than that!
