Nails Inc Piccadilly

Nails Inc Piccadilly is a fishnet design magnetic polish. While I usually really like the Nails Inc magnetic polishes, in this case, I found the design hard to successfully create. As you can see, the fishnet pattern doesn't cover my whole nail, possible because my nails are quite curved. 


This is a shot of what the lacquer looked like at one coat (before applying the magnet after the second coat). 




While I was really excited about having a new magnetic pattern to play around with, this might not be the best one for my nails- on someone with flatter nails, I think it would probably work much better.


Here's a bonus picture- Piccadilly is such a bronze-y colour (a deep green-leaning bronze with golden shimmer), I thought it perfectly matched a bronze bodhisattva statue I have.


What do you think of Nails Inc Piccadilly? Is it a success or failure?

  1. I think it had potential but it's too bad the design didn't come out more crisp!! Maybe you can DIY your own magnetic designs! I saw this posted on Dollish Polish's FB page as a link:

    2. Okay, that is SO COOL. Everyone should check this out. I especially love the square one and the cross effect one. So unique. I've gotta try this!

  2. Too bad is isn't more crisp, did you try to slowly move it from side to side when holding it over the finger, that sometimes helps me.
    But the idea with this pattern is really fun!

    1. I didn't try that with this one- when I've tried moving it in the past it's just gotten blurry on me. Maybe I'll have to try this again, though, with your suggestion!

  4. You're right, it absolutely looks like weathered bronze! The fishnet magnet is such a cool idea, too--shame it's so tricky to make work. :(

    1. I'll have to try it with another polish and see if it makes any difference- I'd really love for this to work!

  5. It's a shame this didn't come out properly. I really think the colour and the design work really well together!

    1. I agree- the colouring is awesome in this. I love the brassy/gold tones, especially with this pattern.
