Product Preview: Crystal Nails Tiger Eye gel polish + Video

Hi dear readers,

While I didn’t have time this week to do a new mani I did have a few minutes to play with my new Tiger Eye gel polishes. They are from Crystal Nails and are a magnetic gel polish. The tiger eye effect comes from using a single line magnet over the uncured second coat.

You’ve all probably seen the magnetic polish designs created usually with wavy lines, starbursts or circles. I especially like the cat eye look because it’s almost like an optical illusion, the line seems to move as your hand moves…very cool! On to the pretty pictures!

All samples are done with 1 coat cured then another coat uncured, hold magnet over gel for 5-6 seconds and then cured. You can then apply a shiny topcoat for a dramatic defined line or apply a matte top coat for a more diffuse, subtle look.

I’ve done a short video to show these fun polishes in action:

I hope to do a mani with one these next week.
