It seems so long ago, but I remember going for manicures every Saturday morning, Ahh– those were the good ol’ days. Remember when airbrush designs were all the rage? (What? free design with a full set up tips? sign. me. up.) Ha! Nail art has come a long way – And thank God for that!
While I don’t get the chance to get my mani/pedi’s professionally done as often as I once did- my daughter and I love home mani/pedi’s all the same. And today, short manicured nails are “in” which makes me trendy, not exhausted.
The bonus for this in-home manicurist I’ve become, is that there are so many fun and funky nail polish out that requires little to no talent to pull off. The nail polish does all the artwork its self . You know who started that trend? A Mom. I’m sure of it.
Just a few months ago, I fell in love with chunky-glitter nail polish.
And then this weekend when I was flipping through the pages of Self Magazine I discovered Magnetic Nail Laquer. How fun is this?
This nail laquer has magnetic powder in it. After you’ve put on your first coat, and your nails are still wet- you hover over a magnet that is on the top of the bottle to make different patterns and designs.
Magnetic nail polish is a tad pricer than your average bottle of nail polish – from $18 to Deborah Lippmann’s double set for $32 – but if you use it even twice it kind of pays for itself, right? … thinking… thinking…
Have you tried Magnetic Nail polish? What did you think? Is it worth the splurge?
