I actually was obsessed with this concept a while back when I read that Lancome created a magnetic polish called Le Magnetique. I scoured eBay to track down a polish -- which at the time was already a few seasons back and led me to auctions that were insanely astronomically priced -- but after hitting many-a dead end, I decided it was probably for the best. Magnetic nail polish? Where's the FDA statement on that? I'm a nail biter and I'm wondering what the health effect of potentially digesting a small amount of metal on a daily basis would be?
However, I spotted magnetic nail polish popping up in the states again this month. UK-bred nails inc., a newcomer to U.S. Sephora stores, released a line of shimmery metallic magnetic polishes and the October issue of People Style Watch featured nail care and polish brand LNC's jewel-tone versions. Am I still smitten? Why, yes -- of course!
Still wondering what exactly a magnetic polish is? It's just your average polish infused with iron powder that makes a swirly design when you hover a magnet over it shortly after it's been applied. The result is a unique marbleized masterpiece with a glossy finish.
Will you try magnetic nail polish? Have you spotted any other brands offering iron-infused polish? Does it work? Is it too cool for words or just a big ol' mess? Discuss in the comments below!
