Alphabet Challenge: I is for I Won't Repel You Wet N Wild Magnetic Nail Polish - Swatches and Review

Wahoo, Magnetic Monday is back!  I put it on hold for a while for the Alphabet Challenge, but today I have a new magnetic polish that starts with the letter I.

I Won't Repel You is part of the new Wet N Wild Magnetic Collection.  I bought mine at Rite Aid. The bottle is .33 fl.oz./10 ml. and cost $4.99.  Definitely one of the more affordable magnetic polishes out there.  They all have a magnet housed in the cap and the magnets all have the same striped pattern.  I think there are 8 colors in this collection.

I only used 1 coat for this mani! I painted 1 nail at a time and held the magnet over the wet polish for about 10 seconds.
Before using the magnet, the polish is a metallic taupe color.  When you use the magnet, it creates bronze stripes.
The magnet was nice and strong, but like all of the other magnets I have tried, the design does not reach all the way to the edges of your nail on the sides.  Come on guys, how about making some curved magnets for those of us with curved nail beds?
 It took me  little while to figure out the best way to use magnet to ensure a consistent design on all of my nails (and to not bang my wet polish into the magnet.) The cap doesn't appear to have a lip to rest your finger on, right? Wrong! Ah ha! There are 2, really.  The curved shape of the top is where you rest your finger and by using it the same way with each nail, the design matched on all of my nails.
This magnet design was actually really easy to use (once I figured it out) and I didn't bump my polish into the magnet once!  The cap design is really quite smart, I just wish directions on how to use it or a simple photo/diagram was on the bottle.  I should add that the above photo is just to show you where to hold your finger on the cap.  You want to tilt your finger so that the nail is much closer to the magnet when you use it.  It was just hard to get a clear photo of that :)

I am really enjoying all of the magnetic polishes that are coming out! I was so excited to see more and more drugstore options!  I also picked up a few of the LA Girls magnetic polishes so keep an eye out for them :)

What do you think of the magnetic trend?


  1. I LOVE magnetics!!! My secret wish is that they stay 'in fashion' forever, just like holos!!! I don't think I've encountered a magnetic polish I haven't liked yet!! And I'm totally with you, someone needs to invent a curved magnet, I have the same problem!

  2. Oh wow, your lines are so visible! I love this color!!
    hmm... I need this color would be more like it...
    And I am with you too - Curve magnets now!!! YAY!!!

  3. You did such a good job! I can never get my lines that clean and visible.

  4. Cool. I want to try a magnetic polish - I don't have a Rite Aid near me but I hope they carry these Wet N Wild ones at Walgreens or something. I shall look. Great job with it!

  5. I really like this! I had no idea WnW made a magnetic polish.

  6. Good job! There's definitely a learning curve to magnetics, but once you've got it, they look pretty neat. :)
