I was so excited to try this out. I’m terrible at applying my own polish, so don’t let that sway your opinion. This takes a little time to get the proper effect. These are the steps listed on the site:
Step 1: Step 1. Clean Nails then trim nail surface as normal manicure process
Step 2: Fully shake up the bottle to make the gel uniform.
Step 3: Apply the base coat, then cure by lamp. It can make the gel polish last longer.
Step 4: Apply the first layer of color gel polish in THIN, don’t make it too thick. Then cure by lamp.
Step 5: Apply the second layer of color gel polish. Attention, don’t cure it under the Lamp now.
Step 6: Put the magnetic stick over the nails until the cat eye line shows up, then cure by lamp.
Step 7: Apply the top coat, then cure by lamp.
Step 8. Remove the tacky surface with cotton soaked with cleanser.
It requires a special tool, but it’s only a magnet on a handle basically that draws the metal chips to the surface. It is a gel polish, so you will need the lamp to cure it, but it will work with either UV or LED.
I put the first coat on light, as they said. It gives a pretty solid first coat, that’s the first picture, and it’s a pretty color but a little flat after curing it. I didn’t use a base coat. Then I put the second coat on, and the second picture is before using the magnet on it. Before curing it I used the magnet on it, exactly straight up and down parallel with my nail. I left it for about 20 seconds, and that is the third picture. You can see how the cat’s eye is starting. Then I tried using the magnet at an angle, and you can see the obvious difference in my 4th picture, it’s starting to go at an angle. I’m not sure how it works, because the magnet is flat, I also included a picture of that. But, physics was not my strong suit, so I’m sure there’s an obvious answer 🙂 The one thing I don’t care for is the bottle is just a plain bottle, it doesn’t even have the name of the color on it, so I had to paint the polish on, and since it’s a gel polish, it never really hardened and I had to put the bottle under my cure light. It’s a cool effect, but it does take a lot of time to do it accurately and it’s going to take me a bit of learning to make it look as cool as it does on the site.
I give this 7 out of 10 sugar cookies.
