Houses of Parliament is a dusty metallic purple and is just gorgeous! I applied 1 thin coat to all my nails followed by a thicker second coat and held the magnet to each nail for about 5-10 seconds before moving onto the next nail. The formula is excellent and very opaque and really easy to apply. Dry time was excellent and the brush was easy to use. I applied topcoat to my swatches which unfortunately dragged the polish a bit.
The bottle has a removable outer cap which contains the magnet. The cap has a curved plastic edge to rest on your cuticle to keep the magnet from touching your wet polish when you hold it above your nail. It's sooooo easy to accidentally knock the magnet into the polish! I had to redo two nails because I dented them.
The magnet is on top of the cap and is really strong! It doesn't take long for the magnet to do its thing and you're left with a cool design on your nail. My nails are large and quite curved so I found for some of my nails the effect didn't cover my whole nail. However I love the curved pattern the magnet makes and it just looks amazing in person!
Have you tried magnetic polish? Thanks for looking as always!
