Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color 908 Graphite Gravity

Right now on my nails I am wearing Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color in 908 Graphite Gravity, and I am very excited about the results! To get this design you paint on one coat of the nail polish and wait on it to dry completely. Then you paint on a second coat, and take the magnet off the top of the nail polish. Then hold it over your nail for about 10 second and you get a nice design! Make sure to do the second coat and the magnet one nail at a time, because it only works when the polish is very wet. I found lots of good things about this nail polish, but their are a few bad things:

Pros: -Nice color
         -Cute design with minimal effort
         -Decent brush size
         -Magnet is on the cap of the nail polish
         -Dries quickly

Cons: -Use a good top coat because this chips easily!
          -You have to be careful when using the magnet, because it is easy to hit your nail and mess up the polish application.
          -The thumb nail can be kind of hard to do, because it is bigger. I had trouble getting the magnet to cover my whole nail, so I only got the design on the middle and not the sides. I guess this problem depends on how large your nail bed is though

Here are some pictures of my manicure:


Overall, I think this concept is a good idea, and I like the fact that I get this interesting look without it taking a  long time! It does have a few negatives, but I think with practice and a good top coat anyone can get these cool nails! I am definitely going to repurchase this and I'm going to buy new colors!
