With all the blogger buzz and Pinterest posts about magnetic nail polish, it’s no wonder that the ModCloth Nail Klub was ‘attracted’ to the idea! Magnetic polish is a mix of boldly colored polish and silvery, metallic particles. When a magnet is held over the wet polish, these particles scatter into ethereal, galaxy-like patterns that can be nothing short of brilliant.
The Nail Klub picked up a few reasonably priced bottles of the pretty potion at our local beauty supply store and set about trying it for ourselves. As first-timers with this technique, we were all a bit skeptical, but the results were even better than we hypothesized. Follow our simple tutorial, and you’ll have magnetic polish down to a science!
As with any great experiment, it took the Nail Klub a few tries to get an optimal outcome. Along the way, we came up with some helpful tips and tricks for making the most of your magnetic polish!

I have been wanting to try this trend! Thanks for the post!
I have been tempted to buy this a few times – any brand suggestions for success without breaking the bank?
Hey, Tami! Like you, we Nail Klub ladies were hesitant to spend a lot on a technique we hadn’t tried yet. So, for our first go, we opted for a simple, beauty-store brand rather than a designer product – for about $10, we picked up a four-pack of all different shades. The bottles are small, but that’s perfect for just trying things out. And, even with the less-expensive brand, the results turned out great!
I’d check around your local beauty supply shop, or see what online stores offer at your price point. If you do go with a cheaper polish like we did, make sure to have a quality top coat on hand. Sometimes, less-expensive polish will chip a little sooner, but, if you finish with a great top coat, your budget-friendly manicure can last just as long as a pricey one!
