Layla Magneffect Magnetic Nail Polish in Ruby Red

As long time readers of Beauty Snippets has figured out – I am no nail art person. I am so not creative and just cannot be arsed to sit down for longer than 10 minutes to paint my nails. So when the magnetic nail polish trend came along, I was ecstatic!

For a month or two, there were a few brands doing the magnetic nail polish thing. I was lucky to receive the Layla Magneffect magnetic nail polish in Ruby Red.

Ruby Red is a jewel toned red with hints of metallic silver. Really nice and reminiscent of the Face of Australia Molten Metallics polishes.

It doesn’t require a top or base coat meaning less time doing my manicure – winning. It dries down really quick making it perfect for those times when you realise “Sh*t. I forgot to paint my nails and I’m heading out tonight!” The instructions are quite easy to follow:

While the polish is still wet, simply hold the bottle lid over your freshly painted nail for five to 10 seconds and watch the amazing magnetic pattern appear instantly.

Yeah, if I can’t even get this right, I’m a fail whale. However, perusing the internet shows that it’s just me who’s the fail whale as it seems everyone else got it perfect.

Layla polishes are 3-free and available from selected Price Atack stores for $19.95AUD/10ml in 24 different shades.
