I cut and filed my nails down before applying this polish; so no, your eyes are not playing tricks. I painted a thin coat of Drawn to You on each nail as a base. Then one nail at a time, I did a generous layer and held a magnet over. I used the magnet from my Nabi polish for the horizontal lines. I love this polish! The application was perfection and the design stayed once I pulled the magnet away. As you can see in the last couple of pictures, it has a lovely sparkle and some depth to it.
