Review: 17 Magnetized Polish in Green

I know I'm late on the bandwagon for this one (as per usual) but I'm so in love with this polish! Seriously. It makes the prettiest, unique patterns and I already reckon it's going to be at least as popular as crackle polishes. I picked mine up in boots for the lowly sum of £5.99 plus a free hide n' chic concealer and I know I'm going to get a tonne of use out of it!


The magnet is on the lid of the polish bottle and can be removed so it can be held over the nail; there's even a little curved section to rest your cuticle on but as you can tell from the picture my fingers were none too steady and on the first attempt most of the polish ended up on the magnet. A word of warning though; you need to paint one nail at a time then use the magnet otherwise it will dry and you will have to start over.


What I find most clever is the way it works; there are tiny magnetic particles within the polish that react to the magnet, creating the effect you see. The way the curved lines darken is pretty, too. I like my beauty with a bit of science attached. Oh, and please excuse the messiness of my nails as per usual, I am super lazy and just wait for the excess to fall off in the shower/from washing the dishes.

  1. This is such an amazing idea - must remember to get a bottle of this for myself. Also, I'm exactly the same when it comes to painting my nails. I get it absolutely everywhere and then just pick it all off in the shower x

  3. I received this in purple for my birthday and love it! I found it tricky/slightly annoying to apply though as I kept accidently touching my nail with the magnet and leaving a mark D: But when you get it right they look awesome, especially when they catch the light :)

    1. It seems silly there was no picture of how it looks, because there's nothing else you can really compare it to! I saw other bloggers wearing it which is why I nabbed it :) x

  7. I have this and love it. My lid is also looking quite similar, I just kept moving my hand without even realising!
    I paint my nails messily too, picking it off gives me something to do on my bus journey to work! x
