Something that should be a tutorial

Yesterday and anonymous commenter asked me if I can do a tutorial on how I use kitchen magnets. I'm not sure if this will be helpful, but here is what I do:

This is my kitchen magnet. I guess you all know this character =)

This is how I curve my magnet, just to cover the whole nail, because mine are curvy. If I wouldn't curve the magnet, the pattern wouldn't be on the whole nail

So, lets start:
1. Apply base coat

2. Apply 1 coat of magnetic polish, I'm using 02 Copper rulez! from Essence Metallics LE(picture below)( you have to shake the bottle thoroughly to make it work)

3. Apply another coat of polish, I recommend shaking the bottle on every second nail

4. After you apply a layer of polish you really have to work fast. You take the bended magnet, and squeeze it until you feel that it is touching the skin( not the nail). You can see on the picture below.

5. Count to 5

6. Remove the magnet and repeat on other nails

This is the finished look

I hope this was useful, if it was please let me know =)

    Anonymous, I'm glad that it's useful, though I think that pictures (especially the one with me holding the magnet) should be better in quality =)
