I wanted to complete a manicure on Friday, but my Husband needed to go to get a background check completed for work. We had to travel 35 miles to get to the Department of Motor Vehicles. I thought why not complete a manicure as well. I wanted you see that I completed the manicure in my car as my Husband drove. I want to tell you before you continue to read that the pictures are not edited and not of the best quality. I did not change the date on the camera as well.
Daniel had purchased three L.A. Color Magnetic polishes the day before. He said, "They were on sell at $2 a piece. I saved $8. And I am enabler." grinning. He purchased GNL278- Magnetic Force (charcoal), GNL273-Attract (purple), and GNL271- Polar Opposite (silver).
|Magnetic Force, Attract and Polar Opposite.|
I used KLEANCOLOR Wizard Pads, Nail Polish Remover pads+Cuticle Oil. I only had to use one pad. I love using this pads. I keep them in my purse at all times.
After removing my previous polish, I wiped off of the excess cuticle oil with a paper napkin.
I decided that I wanted to use two different polishes. I choose Polar Opposite (silver) and Attract (purple).
The Polar Opposite is suppose to create a straight line once the magnet cap is hovered over the nail polish. The instructions state that after applying one thick coat of the polish, hover the magnet cap over the nail and the design should appear.
The Attract is suppose to create chevrons once the magnet cap is hovered over the nail polish. The instructions state that after applying one thick coat of the polish, hover the magnet cap over the nail and the design should appear.
I applied L.A. Colors Clear Top Coat to my nails.
I applied one coat of the Polar Opposite polish and used the magnetic cap. I could only see the lines on my pointer and pinkie fingers. This is what happened to the manicure.
I applied one coat of the Attract polish and used the magnetic cap. I could only see the lines on my ring and pinkie fingers. This is what happened to the manicure.
I was not very impressed with the results of the magnetic polish. I think that the next time that I use these polishes that I will do them at home. I have used other brands magnetic polishes and I usually apply one base coat of the magnetic polish and after a second coat then I use the magnetic cap.
Once the top coat was dry. I used my jojoba oil along with some Nivea hand lotion.
I keep all of my nail supplies in a zip lock bag in my purse. I have it with me at all times. It has a glass nail file, nail polish remover pads, lip gloss, jojoba oil (in a SH holder),L.A. Colors top coat and petroleum jelly.
I hope that everyone enjoyed my traveling manicure. So as you can see that you can complete a manicure while completing errands.
