DRK Nails(IPU)-Easy Magnetic Effect Top Coat

Makers Description: This top coat was created to facilitate the process of achieving a magnetic effect with magnetic polishes. By using this top coat you will save time achieving a magnetic effect. You don't need to rush to finish before the polish dries. Apply the magnetic polish as if it were a regular polish and allow it to dry. You don't need to apply the magnet to each coat applied. Just use a generous layer of topcoat and then hold the magnet over the nail. Repeat with each nail. This top coat will help you achieve a great magnetic effect even with weaker magnetic polishes.

$7.50
Capped at 150

Shown here in 1 coat. I applied a magnetic polish(the DRK PPU above) and did not magnetize it and instead let it fully dry. I then applied the top coat generously and held a magnet over it like I normally would have. It did do as described and activate the magnetic polish below but in my opinion not as strongly as an effect as you would get with just using the magnet directly over the magnetic polish itself. It is also not a quick dry top coat so it took a bit to fully dry for me.

It's benefits are: 2-4 minutes or less and your nails will dry, durable, long lasting with days or weeks of no tip wear, or chipping! And let's talk about that crystal clear shiny glossy ""wet/gel like"" appearance. Apply Glisten & Glow top coat in a thin layer floating it over the top of the polish below, go back in with a 2nd coat to smooth and seal glitter or textured polishes. Protect your nail art/stamping/watermarbles with Glisten & Glow top coat, allow all that beauty below to dry and then float on top a nice bead of top coat. Seal the tips, side walls and just past the colored polish line near your cuticle to prevent any shrinkage. Want to intensify your holographic polishes? add a coat of Glisten & Glow top coat!
