Creative musings in bright colors

I have so much fun playing with magnetic polishes! This mani (for metallic day) was inspired by a magnetic + stamp pin by nailXchange, only I chose to do the stamp over a magnetic GRADIENT because they are one of my new favorite things.


I had my long-suffering boyfriend pick out which two of my 4 magnetic polishes I should use for this gradient, and went to town! I was thinking of trying to gradient stamp as well, but decided that simple is better for something like this.



– Grey metallic: Nails Inc – Trafalger Square
– Teal metallic: Nails Inc – Whitehall
– Silver: A England – Excalibur
– Stamp: Bundle Monster – 208



I still cannot get over the whole gradient-with-magnetic thing. My boyfriend (yes, he-of-infinte-patience) thought this mani looked like cracked ice when I was done with it, hence the title! Enjoy!

  1. Ever so cool. That’s the first time I’ve ever liked magnetic polish.

  2. Fun mani! 🙂

  3. Wow such a great idea! Magnetic gradient! I shall have to try this 🙂

    • the key is let it dry and then apply a clear slow-drying top coat before the magnet….otherwise there is no way to get the wavey bits to line up for each color! This way you can do them at the same time after the gradient is down
