Using magnetic nail polish, Magnetic Cat Eye Gel nails give a beautiful reflective effect, mimicking that of a cat’s eye. There are many different nail art designs to explore with this incredibly versatile Instagram-famous treatment. It can also be used over a simple base coat, which can enhance the appearance of the polish. In our course, you will learn everything you need to know about Magnetic Cat Eye Gel Nails, including preparation, nail art and application and techniques that make the look last as long as possible.
What does Magnetic Cat Eye Gel Nail treatment look like?
This nail treatment uses magnetic polish, which contains iron powder fragments that are attracted to magnets for the cat-eye effect. Since the iron fragments are dense, they sink to the base layer of the polish, making them less visible. When a magnet is placed over the nail, the iron particles rise toward the surface and can be seen through the polish, creating the mesmerising shimmer effect that the treatment is known for. This magnet can then be used to create a variety of designs, ranging from the classic central line resulting in the “cat eye” effect to more complex, detailed patterns.
You can expect to charge around £20 – £35 for Magnetic Cat Eye Gel nails, depending on your location. The nails usually last between 2 and 3 weeks, with the treatment typically taking around 30 minutes to perform.
