Day 6 violet – 31Challenge

I saw some other blogs that had used this polish that I wanted to check out. It’s the “Layla Magneffect polish” It was $15.00 at my local Ulta. It comes in a bunch of different colors. My Ulta had, gun-metal, Changing Lilac (which is the one I purchased), Blue Grey Flow, Turquoise Wave, Purple Galaxy, Golden Nugget, Metallic Sky, Velvet Groove, Golden Bronze, Brown Sugar, Silver Galaxy, and Black Metal. I also saw somewhere that they have other designs not just the line. My local Ulta only had the line. (See bottom of post for link to Ulta’s colors)

For the Nail Challenge I attempted my first shot at this, and one nail I touched my nail to the magnet accidentally and had to start over. For those of you that do not know how this polish works, I will explain.. You start off with your normal base coat just as you would and then paint a decent coat of the polish on your nail. (I did a thin coat and it didn’t work out quite as well I will explain) you then hold the magnet just above your nail for 5 seconds and it pulls the metals in the polish together making the design shown on the top of the polish bottle. The one I purchased was a line, you can hold it vertical, diagonal, horizontal etc, for this look I did horizontal. Anyway, back to why the thin coat did not work, so it is pulling the metals together and what it did was pull it so that the other spots on my finger nail barely had any polish and it did not look right.

The polish dried fairly quickly, I put my top coat on after about 5 minutes, then my Drying Drops and I was ready to go, I baked some cookies and put my hands in the oven mitts and didn’t get messed up!

Here are two more shots of the finished product 🙂
