Gelish Magneto 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.
