Avon colour attract magnetic nail enamel


Using Magnetic Nail Varnish

January 29, 2014


Some months ago now, I posted a Nail of the day which included Avon’s Colour Attract Magnetic Nail Varnish. Since then, I’ve had a few people asking me how to use magnetic wands/blocks with their nail varnish and I have to admit, looking back to when I first tried these out – I too was a little confused.

So to help you all out, I’ve taken a few photo’s to show you.

First off, start by painting your nails with the Magnetic Nail colour of your choice and leave it to dry. Once this first coat has set, you will need to do the next step, one nail at a time.

Next paint another coat on one nail and whilst this is still wet, you need to apply the wand/magnetic block:



You should start to see the pattern forming, hold the wand steady for about 30 seconds before removing carefully and allowing to dry.  I’ve found that if you move the wand accidentally then sometimes this ruins the pattern, but by the third or fourth nail, you should have got the hang of it!



The two colours used in this example were “Magnetic Metal” and “Blue Attraction”, both can be purchased from Avon for £6.00 each and the wands purchased separately for just £0.99 here. I have to say, I’m completely in love with “Magnetic Metal” even without the magentised pattern.

I hope this has been of some use to you all, I’d love to know if you’ve tried out other Magnetic Nail Varnishes and whether you liked them or not.

Totally hellbent for helping out the nail varnish community!




NOTD – Avon Colour Attract, magnetic nail enamel in “magnetic metal”

September 3, 2013

NOTD magneticI bought this from my latest Avon demo brochue sucked in by the magnetic wands you can also buy, which give you pretty patterns – unlike the others I had seen in shops where it was just a random magnet for you to make your own.

When I first applied it, I left it to dry and then held the magnet over. Well nothing happened and I thought “pah, rubbish.” Due to my own curiosity and a morbid fascination with reading leaflets (boring and weird I know!) it was only when I actually read the instructions that I tried this again. The Avon nail varnish specifically, tells you to apply one coat, allow this to dry and then apply a second, holding the magnet over the nails whilst wet.

Above is the finished product, using the “line” magnet and I am so in love with this, that I even did my toes! It has been a long time since I have been so enthused about a nail varnish that I don’t want to take it off. Usually I can’t wait for it to chip so I can have an excuse to pick another color – I think this is my way of justifying the sheer volume of nail varnish I own and trying to get use out of all of them!

Unfortunately, I can’t link to this just yet, because it hasn’t been released! But if anyone does want the link when it is available to buy online, please let me know. I’m also ordering more colours so I will keep you all posted!


Totally hellbent for nail varnish that I never want to chip
