Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color in Ionic Indigo gives your nails a 3D ripple effect look. You have to hold the included magnetic over each nail for a few seconds to achieve this look.

Here are the directions from their website:

STEP 1: Apply 1 coat of base coat. Shake Magnetic Nail Color to activate. Remove overcap with magnet and set aside. Apply 1 coat of Magnetic Nail Color to all 10 nails and let dry. STEP 2: Apply a thick second coat of color to 1 nail and immediately hold the built-in magnet over the nail. Rest the guide just below the cuticle without touching the wet nail polish. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat for all 10 nails and let dry. Finish with top coat.

I’ll be honest, it takes some practice. The effect did not work on my first nail on my first try, so please read the instructions. After you apply your thick second coat, you immediately hold the magnet over that nail! You don’t even have time to quick wipes off the excess from the corners. If you take too long the effect will not appear. Make sure to hold the magnet over your nail for the full 10 seconds, I waited 15 seconds before moving on to the next nail.

If you have long nails like I do, I suggest that you tilt you nail downward while you have the magnet over it. Doing so will help get the effect all the way down to your tip. The first time I did it, the design did not cover my entire nail. Also, be careful not to smudge the polish with the magnet.

Ionic Indigo is a dark blue and once you use the magnetic, it creates a shiny gem like blue effects that comes out at you. I think this line should have launched during the fall/winter season because all the colors are so dark! I might try Purple Potion, it matches my birthstone and I have an amethyst cat-eye bracelet that has a similar 3D effect!
