Some holidays you cannot think of without thinking of its iconic colors. For Christmas it is red, green and gold. When creating this year’s charity polish, I wanted to play with that classic palette. Santa Claws is a magnetic polish that looks like a bronze gold polish with red background, then when you use with the magnet, a green background sets off the red magnetic accent, while hints of gold shine through with a dusting of holo glitter. As with all magnetics, it is important to work quick when using the magnet, this effect will be more scattered than the magnetics in the launch party collection. Best in 2 coats.
Type: Magnetic Multi-Chrome Base Type: 5 Free Base Glitter Load: None Glitter Size: None Recommended Coats: Best worn in 2 coats, or 1-2 coats over black. See instructions below. Notes: You will need a strong magnet to get the effect to work, available separately
INSTRUCTIONS: KBShimmer Magnetic polishes are a fun way to bring a unique and near 3D effect to your nails. With use of the KBShimmer magnet, a linear design will appear, drying to a beautiful shifty pattern on your nails. For a true galaxy feel, top with A Star Is Formed, the KBShimmer micro holo flake top coat.
1. Prep nails with KBShimmer Basic Training or Fillin’ Groovy Base Coat.
2. Apply 1 coat of Magnetic Polish let dry. (Optional, apply 1 coat of black polish before first coat of magnetic polish.)
3. Apply a second, thick coat of magnetic polish on 1 nail. Ensure polish is thick, but not dripping.
4. Immediately after application, hold magnet 1/4 inch away from nail at an angle. Hold magnet over nail for 15-30 seconds.
5. The longer and closer you hold the magnet over the polish, the more pronounced the pattern will be.
6. Repeat with a third coat if desired, holding magnet in the same place as previously held.
7. Continue, repeating steps 1-6 with each additional nail.
8. Finish with KBShimmer Clearly On Top quick dry top coat. Again, hold magnet over nail for 15-30 seconds after top coat application.
9. As polish dries, pattern will spread out. The longer you hold the magnet when drying, the less it will spread.
