To break up the monotony of vampy cremes, I’ve prepared shimmery or glittery polishes to wear over the weekends. Nails Inc. Houses of Parliament (Magnetic Polish) is a silvery purple metallic shimmer:
Picture taken in sunlight. This applied well; it was very pigmented and went on smoothly. I followed the directions given, which were to apply one coat to all the nails, then, nail by nail, apply a second coat then hold the magnet over. I do like that the cap has that little piece that I can rest on my finger to keep the magnet from actually touching the nail. I’d wait a couple of extra minutes before applying topcoat, since it could smear the stripes. This may be a metallic polish, but it’s the shimmery kind, not the brushstoke-y frosty kind. The magnetic effect does look really cool, revealing the lighter silver-purple shade against the darker. It looks like there’s a permanent glint of light on my nails. I got the trio of metallic polishes and now I can’t wait to try the rest! I paired this with Milani Dot Com on my toes.
