Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color Review Influenster

Influenster Summer VoxBox Product Review

      One of the neatest items I received in my Summer VoxBox from Influenster was a full sized bottle of Sally Hansen's Magnetic Nail Color.  The color I received is this shiny dark silvery gray called Graphite Gravity.  We all know that Sally Hansen makes some wonderful nail and hand care products.  Every polish of hers I have used goes on smoothly, lasts a long time without chipping or fading, and has great color and shine.  This polish is no exception!

      There is one incredible difference between this polish and all others!  The Magnetic Nail Color is just what its name suggests!  Each color has little metallic particles mixed in with the polish.  A magnet is included in the over-cap of the polish, which in turn has a little lip on it that you place right below the cuticle of the nail you are painting in order to keep the magnet from touching the wet polish.  When you hold the magnet over the painted nail for 10 seconds, this really cool 3-D like design appears as an end result!  How cool is that!! 

     It is really simple to use.  The suggested steps are as follows:
- first paint each nail with a base coat and allow to dry
- then shake Magnetic nail color very well to activate
- remove the over-cap with magnet and set aside
- apply one coat of the Magnetic polish to all 10 nails and allow to dry
- next apply a second, thicker coat to 1 nail and immediately hold the magnet over that nail for 10   
  seconds with the raised lip resting on your cuticle. Do not allow the magnet to touch the painted nail 
- repeat with all remaining nails and let dry
- finish with a top coat (optional)
clear coat
1st coat
2nd, thicker coat
hold magnet over nail for 10 seconds
 I was really surprised with how well this worked.  The only advice I have to give is be sure to shake the polish very well before beginning and make sure the second coat you apply is thick.  It also seems to work better the wetter the polish.
Compare the middle finger nail, on which I did not use the magnet, to the other nails on which I did.

       I did decide to do a bit of experimenting for fun when I started on my second hand and used a stronger magnet from my refrigerator instead of the one in the over-cap. The result?  More 3-D lines.  It looks very neat!
I used a stronger magnet from my refrigerator for this effect! Notice more lines appeared.

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color is available in eight shocking shades including:
  • Graphite Gravity
  • Electric Emerald
  • Ionic Indigo
  • Golden Conduct
  • Red-y  Response
  • Silver Elements
  • Polar Purple
  • Kinetic Copper
     You can click here to visit the Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color website and see all the shades yourself.  You can also read reviews, discover nail beauty tips, find other polishes in beautiful colors and learn all about the Sally Hansen product line.
     If you are a fan of nail polish, and love trying new looks and style, this polish is a must for you! I have been wearing this polish for quite a few days now and true to the Sally Hansen brand, the color is still vibrant and shiny, and there are no chips or peeling. It was easy to apply and the smell was not too strong.  I did use polish remover on one nail to see how easy it was to remove, and was very pleased with the results.  Unlike a lot of dark-colored polishes that leave a faint stain of color, this one came off easily and completely with very little rubbing.
    Remember, I received this as part of my Influenster Summer VoxBox.  Influenster is a fun website that sends you free products to try in return for you honest opinion.  All they ask is that you share your experience across your social networks.  You can go to their site at http://www.influenster.com to join.
