Layla Magnetic Nail Polish

Hi everyone!

Today's blogpost is not a design, but just a nail polish I'm going to show you.
I had an exam a few days ago, and this was my manicure then - I didn't exactly have the time to create an intricate nail art design because I had to study, but I wanted something more than just a simple colour...

Here is where the magnetic nail polish comes in very handy!


I have three magnetic nail polishes - a pink and a blue one by Essence, and a gold brown one by Layla called 09 Golden Bronze.
I really dislike the Essence ones - the magnetic effect is not very strong - but the Layla polish is amazing! 

My mom bought this polish for me about a year ago, and I'm very glad she did!

This is a colour I would never have picked up myself, but it looks so gorgeous and the magnetic effect is very strong and visible, so I absolutely adore this polish.

Magnetic nail polishes are very simple, as you probably already know: you just paint it on your nails and while the polish is still wet, you hold a little magnet right above it to create the effect.

I painted my nails with two coats of Golden Bronze to get full coverage.I just love how the colours turns out when you hold the magnet above it - when you just apply the polish, it looks sort of goldish, like the light coloured stripes you can see on the picture above.But when you hold the magnet above your nails, you can see it changing - so cool! I love the depth that is added by the darker brown colour here.

Yes I'm spamming you with pictures because I just looooove the colours so much! Hope you like them as much as I do!

What do you think of magnetic nail polishes? I think they can look great when you don't have the time to do nail art but still want something special on your nails - provided you have a magnetic nail polish that does what it's supposed to, of course.

Thanks for reading! :)
