Love In Idleness
Love In Idleness
With just a drop this violet shade is sure to captivate you at first sight. Pick this polish and watch it bloom in the sunlight.
Love In Idleness is a violet-to-dark periwinkle pastel magnetic polish with a white gold highlight and gold scattered holographic glitter.
This shade is part of the Midsummer Night’s Dream Collection.
1. Remove the natural oils on your nails with a cotton ball dipped in acetone or rubbing alcohol. Apply the protective base coat of your choice.
2. Working one nail at a time, apply a generous coat of magnetic nail polish and immediately hover Magnetic Wand over nail, as close as possible, for 10-15 seconds. For the strongest effect, hover wand until polish dries, about 45-60 seconds.
3. Repeat step 2 until polish is opaque.
4. Once dry, seal manicure with Quick Dry Top Coat. Hovering the magnetic wand over top coat while it’s still wet will increase the magnetic effect.
For Faster Application:
After step 1, apply a coat of creme polish. This creates an opaque foundation which means you’ll need fewer coats of magnetic polish. Depending on the shade, it may enhance or soften the appearance of the magnetic effect, so have fun and experiment!
Store your polish in a cool, dark place to keep it looking and applying its best! Polish exposed to too much heat or sunlight may change its color and/or consistency over time.
This nail polish dries slightly textured. We recommend applying clear top coat over the nail polish for a smooth finish and longer lasting mani! Applying topcoat to your magnetic nail polish will not affect its magnetic properties.

The magnetic didn't work after holding it for super long + thick coat, and the magnetic particles would fall back into the color leaving me with kinda splotchy grayish purple nails. The color alone without the effect didn't really wow me :(

The color is lovely but the magnetic thing doesn't work at all. I've tried twice now.

This polish is gorgeous on its own but even more incredible with the magnetic effect. I applied a coat of black polish, 2 coats of this polish (using the magnet on each coat) and finished with quick dry top coat. The key to getting the full magnet effect is to hover the wand over the top coat for at least 20 sec while it is still wet. Beautiful results!
I absolutely love this color!!! I'm looking forward to my next purchase with you guys!!
Looks a little too much like Pursue Me Not.
