PREPARE TO BE HAUNTED.
no, you’re not seeing things. there’s definitely something –a presence– emerging from the magnetized darkness. a ghastly silver silhouette floating listlessly against the shimmering black twilight… meticulously following your every movement. slowly pulling you in.
APPARITION is a black magnetic lacquer with a subtle blue shimmer that reveals a silver magnetic stripe.
this is OPTIC 2.0.
note: all orders with magnetic lacquers include one free magnetic wand.
WARNING: this product can expose you to chemicals including nickel, which is known to the state of CALIFORNIA to cause cancer. for more information visit www.p65warnings.ca.gov
storage: think of mooncat nail lacquers like vampires: they feel most at home in cool, dark places. store them accordingly to keep them looking and applying their best. lacquer exposed to too much heat or sunlight may change in color or consistency over time...and just have generally bad vibes.

A GUIDE TO APPLYING
1. always work one nail at a time. apply a full coat of magnetic lacquer and immediately hover your magnetic wand as close to the nail as possible. use the rectangular end to create a stripe effect or the round end for a more abstract result. hover your wand for at least 10-15 seconds.
*for the strongest effect, hover until the lacquer dries, for ~45-60 seconds.
2. repeat step one until your lacquer is opaque.
3. once your nails are dry, seal them one by one with SPEED DEMON TOP COAT. immediately hover your wand over your nail to prevent the magnetic pigments from spreading. keep hovering until your top coat is completely dry. this step is crucial for locking in a sharp final design.
FOR FASTER APPLICATION: start with a coat of crème lacquer—use black lacquer for dark magnetics or any complementary opaque shade for light magnetics. doing so will create an opaque foundation and allow you to use fewer coats of magnetic lacquer per manicure.
Black but better
Great polish for when you want to wear black but want it extra! Very beautiful, but felt like it was missing something, so I added Moondust on top and it was perfect!
One coat and 20 secs with the wand and the silver streak appears. I think this is the most noticeable of all the magnética I’ve purchased. I did paint my nails last night, this morning I did the dishes and one nail has already chipped. I see other reviews that say they last days… I have not had that luck with any of my purchases, maybe it’s my application technique so I won’t deduct stars
black and silver have never looked this good!
A little disappointed
I have other magnetics and magnetics in general unless they are gel are always slightly disappointing because no matter what they will always spread out a bit, goes from crisp line to wider line which is still pretty cause you can still see a line. This one however for me doing it the same way I always do has completely spread and just looks metallic grey and can't even see a line, altho pretty that's not what I was expecting :(

Nice silver holo magnetic
When using this polish, make sure you don’t use any base color and instead use the polish alone magnetizing each coat and then one more time after putting the top coat on. The magentic affect is easier to achieve this way and the silver will pop out of the black polish this way.
