|1 coat unnamed nabi magentic|
|sunlight- most color-accurate|
this magnetic polish gave me a little bit of trouble. the magnet (which is inside the cap of the polish) isn't very strong at all, so i had to get my nail super close to it for the diagonal lines to show up. which of course meant that i accidentally smudged a couple of my nails by getting too close to the magnet, and had to start over. i would've just painted over it with another coat and tried again, but i discovered that 2 coats made the color much darker and just generally ickier. i liked the effect of 1 coat, which is totally opaque anyway.
the other thing that bugged me was that in the bottle, this shade is a gorgeous warm rose gold with lots of gold/copper shimmer. but after using the magnet, all the copper gets pulled to the front, and you can't see the rose gold anymore. just a too warm copper that looks horrid with my skin tone.
|very pretty in the bottle. . . .|
overall, this wasn't my favorite look. but that's ok, because i only paid $3.99 for this polish at walgreens. so no biggie. maybe i can wear this on its own without the magnet? that way it would just be a lovely rose gold metallic. or i have a hunch that this would be great for stamping. all is not lost!
