Tawdy Tiger

A while ago I did some pretty cool tiger nails and some pretty awful snow leopard nails. Both of them were inspired by Lacquerish and her magnetic tiger manicure. Last time I tried this, I did not have the right type of polish at all, and did not completely read her instructions.

Turns out, the key is LAYERING magnetic polish! So, when I saw Rite Aid having a sale on Sally Hansen magnetic polish, I snatched up Kinetic Copper, just to try this manicure! Turns out it is not as translucent as her gold topper, but it does look awesome.

On all my nails except my ring finger, I started with one coat of Nails Inc Trafalgar Square (a silver-grey magnetic polish) before adding Kinetic Copper. My ring finger just got two coats of Copper. I was hoping to see more of the black from Trafalgar peeking through (as it did when I tested it on paper) but that didn’t happen. I can’t tell the nails apart! Although both do look awesome. This was using the magnet that came with Kinetic Copper. As with most metallics, this polish dried quickly.

I then went ahead and stamped over the dried polish (yes, this time I waited for it to dry completely) with bundle monster plate 223. And voila, awesomeness!

I think this manicure justifies spending $2 on Kinetic Copper :-D. Now I just need to make a magnetic gradient, a-la Dressed Up Digits!
