Annnnyways, today I have for you one of the OPI James Bond Magnetic polishes, Is It Silva? I will preface this post with a. I wasn't going to buy any of the magnetic Bond polishes but, its holographic, so how could I not??? and b. I have never used the magnetic polishes despite owning one of the Layla ones for about a year. I have just not been enthralled by the magnetic pattern finish which has trended and gone really..the new Liquid Sand trend..love, have, must have! This is my first attempt at the magnetic finish polish, so be gentle. Each of the 3 polishes came with a different magnet and I tried them on different fingers using Is It Silva? polish.
L-R, Morning Money Penny Magnet on first finger, Bond,James Bond Magnet on middle finger, Is It Silva? Magnet on ring finger and Morning Money Penny Magnet on pinky.
The actual magnet patterns you should be able to achieve
The holographic loveliness is great in the sunlight
The effect seems quite dull to me in the shade :(
Patterns or polish bald patches? Hmm...
The ring finger is the best pattern result which happens to be the one it came with.
I purchased the magnetic polishes without expecting too much from them. I liked Is It Silva? for the holographic effect and think it will looks pretty good non magnetized as well. The matching magnetic shape that came with the polish appears to work the best but I am going to have to try the other polishes to let you know! I think the polish might need to be a bit thicker, so will adjust for the next go at the magnetic polish effect look, but overall I quite liked it. Even if I am not a super fan of magnetic polish, I will give it another go :)
What are your thoughts on magnetic polish? Is it a trend that will fall by the wayside or will they always have a place in your collection?
