Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Polish in Golden Conduct Review

I decided to bring back my nail of the day posts! I feel like this gives me more of a chance to tell you all how I felt about each polish that I wear. I decided to start out with a nail polish that I really wanted to review for you. It's a Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Polish. I had been wanting to try out magnetic nail polish for a while, but it's so expensive! I didn't really want to shell out 10+ dollars on a nail polish that I wasn't sure I was going to love. I tend to prefer to spend under 5 dollars for nail polish! I love me a good value! So when I saw that Big Lots had this polish for under 2 dollars, I had to jump on it!

The Sally Hansen Magnetic nail polish features a round bottle, with an overcap that contains the magnet which features a cuticle guard. I really like that feature. It keeps the magnet, which has a wave-pattern, right with the nail polish. As someone who is famous for losing things, I really appreciate that. The actual color of the polish seems much more bronze than golden to me, and it has a nice bit of microshimmer in it.

The directions say to apply a base coat of the polish on all ten nails and then once it dries to apply a thick second coat of polish and then hover the magnet over the nail to create the pattern immediately afterwards, working one nail at a time. It seemed simple enough. However, it was harder than it sounded. Several times I got too close with the magnet and touched the wet polish with it, messing up the nail. And the pattern didn't turn out nearly as pronounced as I had expected. I am not sure if I didn't do a thick enough coat, or if I didn't hold the magnet close enough or what. But it wasn't what I expected. So overall, for my first time using this polish, I was honestly pretty disappointed. I like the finished look. It just turned out much more subtle than what I was hoping for. And the polish itself is thick and difficult to work with.

Overall, I am VERY glad that I did not pay full price for this polish. I would have been terribly disappointed if I paid 9 dollars for this. I am pleased with the results for the $1.60 I paid, though. I bought another shade, polar purple, at the same time, and I am anxious to see how that performs, as well as to try again with the process to see if it gets easier with practice.

So my overall opinion is that, while I like the color, I was not overall pleased with the finished result, and while I will try it again to see if it works better, I was pretty disappointed with this and very glad I did not pay full price. have you tried the Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail polish? What were your thoughts?
