No, you are not imagining things, I used this polish before I cut my nails. I painted a thin coat of Candid on each nail as a base. Then one nail at a time, I did a generous layer and held the magnet over. The magnet is located on the top of the cap. The lines form rather quickly. I love the way this looks once the magnet is held over it. The shimmer is pulled into lines while the gorgeous glitter remains. Absolutely gorgeous in person. I cannot wait to wear this for Autumn.
Nabi Magnetic polish retails for $5 at Walgreens.
