This pigment pulls toward the magnet and changes color in different lighting, while the black base is a constant that holds together the spaces in between.
Dark Matter is a magnetic multichrome polish that shifts between shades of green, blue, and purple with scattered holographic glitter, and comes with a magnetic wand.
This shade is part of the Galaxy Trio.
Step 1: Apply a generous coat of magnet-activated nail polish.
Step 2: While nail polish is still wet, hover Magnetic Wand above nail for at least 10 seconds to create magnetic effect. Work one nail at a time.
Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 until polish is opaque.
Step 4: Let dry and seal manicure with Live Love Polish Quick Dry Top Coat.
Step 5: (Optional) While top coat is still wet, hover Magnetic Wand above the nail for another 10 seconds for stronger magnetic effect.
This nail polish dries smooth. We still recommend applying clear top coat over the nail polish for a longer lasting mani! Applying topcoat to your magnetic nail polish will not affect its magnetic properties.

Absolutely LOVE this polish! I found the color to be pretty accurate to both the official pictures and the ones other reviewers have posted here. The effect with the magnetic wand is mesmerizing! It really can produce a design that looks like the Milky Way at your finger tips and it’s beautiful! My colors tended to shift between blue, purple, and green/teal. Look up videos on how to use the magnetic wand and be patient when painting each layer. It’s so worth it!
I love this color. Looks great on my nails
Let me start by saying, I initially ordered this polish, tried it out a bit, and then wrote a two-star review because the polish just didn't perform as I had hoped - while pretty, with a nice multi-chrome shift, the magnetic element just didn't work well at all, and the finish was not particularly shiny - more of a "satin" finish, though adding a glossy top coat helped. This was my first order from Live Love Polish, and of the three items I ordered, only this one didn't live up to my expectations. What DID live up to - and exceeded - my expectations, was the fabulous customer service I received after writing that review! Live Love Polish sent me another bottle to try, and did everything possible to make the situation better. Very, very impressed with that! And while the second bottle of Dark Matter did indeed perform a little bit better than the first, I am not able to get much of the magnetic effect from it. It is still a beautiful multi-chrome, though I probably would not purchase this particular polish again. I will DEFINITELY purchase other items from Live Love Polish in future, because I love the other polishes I've purchased here, and mostly because of that great customer service.
