Nabi Magnetic Nail Polish Swatches
I'm not too crazy about the magnetic look but I thought I ought to just give it a shot anyways. I spotted these Nabi polishes at Wagreens and I was quite surprised that they had a pretty big selection of colors to choose from. They were about $5 each, which is cheaper than the rest that I've seen on the market.
Each shade came with a different design. Either diagonal stripes, vertical strips, or V stripes.
Is it just me or I don't seem to find the color number or names to these polishes? I'm just going to call this one Rose Gold because that's what it reminds me of. It's actually a very gorgeous color. It's a little thick and you can get a pretty good coverage within the first coat.
The second polish is a dark navy blue color.
As you can see from the swatches, the magnetic effect is uneven and weak. I really struggled and tried my best with these and I'm not very happy with the outcome in spite of the effort I put in. The stripes showed up a little better on the dark polish but they are not even straight.
I also want to mention that they have a very strong, unpleasant scent. So if you have a sensitive nose, you might want to consider that.
I'm not very thrilled with these polishes and I wonder if they would turn up better if I had a stronger magnet but then again, since I'm underwhelmed by the look of it, I think I'm just going to return these.
What are your thoughts about magnetic polishes? Love it or leave it? Which brand would you recommend?
