Mystic Magnets

Mystic Magnets Nails

I didn't think "gel" versus "polish" magnets made a difference, but maybe they do?

I received these gel nail magnets from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review. I originally attempted to used them on the magnetic polish in the Emerald Expression design, but I was having some difficulty. For this mani, I used a cat eye magnetic gel, and the magnets worked perfectly. I got the set of magnets, which includes one large and one skinny cylinder magnet, and two sets of five large and small ball bearings. The magnets can be used to create all different types of designs.

Polish Used:
  • Born Pretty Store - magnetic gel BP-08
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Gel nail magnets (#45930)
  • UV/LED lamp

Gel magnetic polish is a little easier to work with as opposed to regular magnetic polish since it doesn't dry as fast. For the magnets to work, you must hold them over the wet polish for about 10 seconds. And with gel, you can make sure the magnetic design shows up dark enough, or add another layer to start over before curing. With polish, you have one try, and sometimes it doesn't work. To create this look:
  1. Working one nail art a time, apply a layer of magnetic gel polish.
  2. Use the large ball bearing magnets in a flower pattern, and hold over the side of the nail for 10 seconds.

  3. Cure under UV/LED lamp, then do the next nail.
