Strange trends in the nail world will come and go, and I am sure that magnetic polishes are already considered to be “old news,” just like shatter and crackle polishes, but I still think they are fun. Kylie is a magnetic polish that I received in my May Julep Maven box (American Beauty). Like all magnetic polishes, she is a metallic, shimmering polish. I almost regret purchasing nails inc.’s magnetic polishes last year when they first came out because this sultry violet polish resembles nails inc.’s houses of parliament. Oh well!
Kylie retails for $18 (magnet included), but you can get her along with other Julep products for just $0.01 by using coupon code SHAREONMAY at checkout. Click here to get started!

REVIEW: MAGIC MAGNETIC NAIL POLISH (GREEN) & NAIL WHEELS
The magnetic polish blew my mind. I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting it to work very well because a few months ago, I splurged for nails inc.’s magnetic polishes (so I was being a bit biased). BPS offers various colors of their magnetic polishes for a fraction of the cost. The magnetic polish was extremely easy to use and it even came with the magnet. I started off with two thin coats of the polish to build a foundation. When those two layers dried completely, I put a thick layer over a nail (do this one nail at a time so that the polish doesn’t dry before you can get the magnet on it) and immediately placed the magnet as close to the nail as possible without actually touching the nail. I let the magnet hover over the nail for 30 seconds. “WOW.” The wavy effect came out perfectly and I love that 3D look it gives off. Then I repeated the same step for each finger.
This polish is perfect for you busy bees - you get instant nail art! I highly recommend this product to all my followers. It is definitely a cheaper alternative to nails inc.’s magnetic polishes and there are even more colors to choose from on the BPS website.
I had no trouble with the formula. The polish went on smoothly with no streaks. Oh and finally, I have to gush about the bottle and brush. It is the same shape as OPI’s (my favorite brand) bottles and it came with the similar wide-style brush. Love everything about this!
Okay, moving on to the nail wheels.
I was so excited to finally have some nail wheels to use for swatching and practicing. Don’t you hate it when you have a fresh, new manicure, but then you buy more nail polish and you can’t swatch them on your own fingers? Story of my life. With these nail wheels, you can easily paint them, hover the nail over your finger, and get a good sense of what the color will look like on your hands. Amazing. The package comes with ten nail wheels, each with 20 nails (a total of 200 nails).
I plan on using these wheels to swatch my nail collection for easy viewing. :)
The set of nail wheels and magnetic polish each cost about $6. These prices are amazing and I don’t know where else you would be able to get these deals! On top of that, shipping is free, and when you use my coupon code MANDIEW21, you get 10% off your entire purchase.

Hello lovely followers!
I just got my feather (synthetic, of course) hair extensions put in a few days ago and while shopping with Mr. mandiesmanicures, I found magnetic nail polish at Sephora! I HAD to pick up both bottles, because, well, you know, I love nail polish, haha, but mostly because this polish is going to match my new hair. :)
Expect a post with magnetic nails very soon! Also, if you have any suggestions or advice on using these polishes (I have never owned any nails inc. varnishes before), feel free to drop me a note in my ask box.
