Nails Inc. has created a magnetic nail polish!
Yup, you read that read, magnetic polish. The nail polish contains magnetic particles. The cap of the polish has a magnet on it and after putting on two coats of the polish, you hold the magnet over and reveal a unique a really cool design.
Here is a picture but you can also check out a demo of the polish in this video.

I don't think it is available in Canada yet but it is on the Sephora site. It isn't too expensive either at US$16.00
Would you try this? Are you loving all the amazing nail trends that are happening lately?

Wonder if we can email them a link to CA so they can see how many fabulous ladies are willing to review their items and give them free publicity? ;-) I can't wait until this comes to Toronto!!

You can order it online from the Sephora website right now- $16 a bottle isn't so bad.....

I was at Sephora yesterday and we tweeted this as well- the magnetic nail polish is available in Canadian Sephora stores. I saw it at the Eaton Centre location.
It is $18 a bottle. I was all set to snap it up but then, it just seemed a bit too much for me. In person- it isn't as exciting as I thought it would be. Part of me thinks it's just another crackle fad and pretty soon, companies will be coming out with knock offs at a much lower price- so why bother?

I love this idea! Will def look for it locally. Thanks for finding this Alex :)

LCN makes a magnetic polish in a lot more colours but you have to buy the magnet seperate - you can buy them @

So I just saw a similar polish yesterday at Sephora. The magnet was on top of the lid, instead of being inside it. Anyways, I tried it in one of my nails......and I was sadly not impressed. The polish was THICK. I mean really really thick! Thick thick. Not a good thing for polishes to be as it'll take forever to dry. Also, I held my fingertip to the magnet like the cosmetician showed me, and held it and held it....and after a really long time the polish moved maybe a little bit. I would imagine this to simply take hours to do. Imagine having to dedicate several hours to do your nails? Only to have it chip in a week or so (if you're lucky and it stays put that long)? Not worth the effort.
I do have an idea for a similar look with less time: pick two colours, same colour different shade. Put one on normally, and while it's still wet take the other shade and swirl it on over the top of the wet colour. That might give the swishy swirled look, with less effort and time! What do you think?
