What is Potions Gel Polish?
Our awesome Potions Gel Polish collection is a highly pigmented, single colour magnetic gel polish that can be applied over another base colour to create a complementary or contrasting nail art design effect.
They will need to be finished with a gel polish top coat to help protect them and to create either a super glossy or matte finish depending upon your nail art design.
What is Dragon Eye Gel Polish?
Our amazing Dragon Eye Gel Polish is a multi-tonal magnetic gel polish that contains particles safe for use in the cosmetics industry that can be manipulated using magnets to create some wonderful nail art designs.
We recommend using the Dragon Eye duo magnet with these gel polishes as it will give you a more crisp and defined line of colour, although you can use any magnets to create an effect.
