A true innovation in nails, LCN’s new magnetic polish line gives nail techs a whole new polishing challenge.
The polishes are infused with magnetic particles, so after the polish is applied and is still wet on the nail, a magnet is held over it to activate the particles in the polish and move them into the design of the magnet — pretty cool, huh? The trick is to keep a steady hand to hold the magnet just over the polish without actually touching it.
The clarity of the design will vary, with some coming out more defined than others, but even the slightest magnetizing effect will add a luster to any nail and create a unique look.
The polish is applied evenly over the nail bed, making sure it’s not too thin. And the magnets are held over the nail for 10-15 seconds.
The magnetic polishes come in Copper Seduction, Nude Charm, Iron Magic, Amazing Mauve, Ferromagnetic Blue, Green Temptation, and Magnetic Moments.

LCN has two magnet designs available, a star pattern and a staggered slant pattern.
The most important part is to apply a thick enough layer of polish, without it becoming clumpy, and then holding the magnet still enough, and just over the wet polish without bumping into it. If you can get it right the results can be quite nice.
