What Is Magnetic Nail Polish And How It Works

We’ve all seen the videos on TikTok and Instagram of beauty influencers using magnets to create different patterns and dimensions on their nails. But what exactly is it…

@nailtechsecrets shared a video on how to do a simple magnetic nail polish look. The colour shifts because the fine metal shavings in the formula are being pulled in different directions and manipulating the colours in different ways. 

@selfcareinpajamas shared the dos and don’ts of magnetic nail polish using a stunning icy pink nail polish. 

Before getting to the fun part, a thick coat of white or black gel polish is all you need as a base for your colour. MYGEL by Mylee have a stunning array of gel polishes that make your magnetic polish look so much more vibrant. That paired with one of Rio’s UV Nail Lamp, that’s all you need to prep for this look. 

One you’re prepped and ready, you can now get to the fun part. So, here are our top four favourite magnetic nail polishes.

Bluesky have given us six of the gorgeous magnetic shades to play with: Blue, Green, Purple, Red, Golden and Silver. Use them all together to make for a brand new rainbow look or just one colour. 

@casualmani shared a short tutorial using Bluesky’s Gel Nail Polish. The magnet swiftly manipulated the colours into an array of different designs. 

BORN PRETTY – Rainbow Cat Magnetic Eye Gel Polish

If you’re a big fan of holo nail polish, this one’s got your name written all over it. Born Pretty’s full coverage cat eye gel polish. The striking black base contrasts the holographic glitter perfectly. It leaves a glossy finish on top of the beautiful array of colours.
