1. Apply one coat of your favourite magnetic polish and allow to dry*
2. Apply another, slightly thicker coat of your magnetic nail polish and immediately place the magnet above your nail ( you want to get very close but do not touch the surface of your nail ) Hold the magnet above your nail for approximately 10-20 seconds. Use the thin side of the magnet for a cats eye effect. You will get much better results if you do one nail at a time.
3. Repeat step 2 if desired opacity is not reached.
4. Apply your favourite top coat and immediately place the magnet above you nail again for another 10-20 seconds. You will get better results if you do one nail at a time.
* I find it is much better to do one nail at a time. If you wait too long your polish will begin to dry and the magnetic effect will not be as obvious.
*The longer you hold the magnet over the polish, the more pronounced the effect will be, especially after top coating.
*If you prefer to have a very well defined line in your manicure, you can also hold the magnet over the first coat.
