Magnet Cat Eye Let's pause for a moment on the magnet...

The magnet of the LCI line has the double magnet!!

The first to the round base with which circular "galaxy" effects can be created, the second is larger and rectangular suitable for creating more linear effects such as the "cat's eye" effect, or by moving the magnet one step at a time to all ends of the nail so as to concentrate all the Cat color in the center of the nail bed, thus obtaining an "orbit" effect ???? Magnificent!

You can customize the effect in base to the position of the magnet, on average it should stand near the nail for at least 5 seconds, after which the typical effect will come out.

Watch with your own eyes, the video with the different techniques of using the magnet..

Magnet effects

As hard as nail art may seem to make, it has base a special ingredient.. Secret. The polish is magnetic, which is why you can get the Cat Eye effect, from which it takes its name.

You can customize the result to your liking, placing the magnet in the position you prefer, in base to the points of light you want to give to your customers' nails.

It is really essential to know where to place the light points of the cat eye effect, not to have uncertainties so as to obtain a uniform texture without making "mess" with the magnet tool.

Remember that the closer the magnet to the nails, the better the result, this does not mean that you have to keep it directly in contact with the polish. It's an operation that only requires a little practice for the first few times.

Give free rein to fantasy, there is no precise rule even you can invent your own effect!

Tips for a Cat Eye on TOP!

Dark colors are a perfect base , you can choose a dark polish semi-permanent to combine with the cat eye semi-permanent , such as a dark blue with a blue/purple magnetic; in fashion to give your customers' nails an appearance reminiscent of a starry sky. Or the burgundy combo polish golden cat eye, very chic and autumnal.

The choice is really wide, it is up to you to decide what character to give to your nail art!


If you stay too long with the magnet placed on the color, you risk creating a negative impact on the quality of nail art, in case it happens do not worry, with the brush spread a slight cat eye pass again.
