Gelish Magneto Swatches

Gelish Magneto magnetic polish swatches

The Magneto collection from Gelish came out in 2012. In my quest to swatch all of the Gelish colors available, this collection couldn’t be left out!  I never jumped on the magnetic polish bandwagon, but after finally trying them, they are pretty cool.  These colors are applied just like any other gel polish, except you hold a magnet over your nail after applying the second coat of color (before curing).   The effect that shows depends on the type of magnet used.  I purchased a set of three Gelish magnets on Ebay (pic below).  I like the wavy line effect the most, then the straight lines… the starburst doesn’t do much for me.

A nice thing about these polishes is that they also make a regular nail polish version of each shade, so you can match your toes to your nails if you don’t like using gel polish on your toes.  I really like most of the colors in this collection.  They are very easy to apply and use, and they also look nice even without the magnetic effects.

    I am not a fan of the magnetics – most end up muddied looking and there is only a very limited range of hues that can be used to embed with the particles that will allow the magnet to move the polish to create the design…but these I do like. I really like the fact they put the magnets on the paddles – now that makes sense…those which put them on the caps or made them little fat and chunky were hard to hold. These would be easy to hold

    Do those polishes work with any magnet? Cause I have the China glaze magnets somewhere laying around lol!

    Thank you!

      I’m not sure. I think you can use a magnet from a different type of magnetic polish, but I don’t know if a regular refrigerator magnet would work.

    My “Electric Metal Lover” turned out more of a dark, old pink rather than a red, after three coats. Any ideas why this might have happened?
