LEGEND HAS IT…
that in the wake of trident storms, beneath the magnetized current of violet skies, a slithering sea beast has been known to surface, lured by the promise of peril above. pray ye never make his many-tentacled acquaintance. or ye will be cursed to swim with the fishes forevermore.
BEWARE, THE KRAKEN is a deep violet magnetic multichrome lacquer filled with reflective glitter that creates a color-shifting olive-magenta-peach stripe. from the EXPEDITION: ATLANTIS set.
A NOTE FOR SMOOTH SAILS: reflective magnetic lacquers are highly textured and should be finished with 1-2 layers of our SPEED DEMON TOP COAT.
note: all orders with magnetic lacquers include one free magnetic wand
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.
Literally everything I wanted
I bought my first set of Mooncat nail polishes and I am beyond thrilled! I fell in love with this shade when I first saw it online and it did not disappoint. It's so gorgeous and is very opaque. I am not a big nail polish person because I normally hate my natural nails so to love these polishes is a game changer for me. I love how quick it dries down and using the magnet is addicting. I legit just enjoy playing with the magnet through the bottle, it's so mesmerizing. Overall, I really love this polish because it's opaque, dries quickly, looks amazing, and the magnetic effect actually works. If you're thinking about trying Mooncat polishes, please do yourself the favor and check out your cart asap!
This was redeemed with my first set of rewards and my goodness it is gorgeous!! Now I know why I have to Beware, the Kraken!!
It took me some time to get the magnetic effect right but now that I know how to do after watching the tutorial it looks really cute, definitely needs a top coat as it is a rough surface but it is a gorgeous color
Holy Magentic Batman!!
I used my rewards and am waiting for my bottle. In the meantime, my birthday is in a month and someone gifted me this. It’s gorgeous. The magnetic shift is really cool and I’m looking forward to painting stars and little constellations on my nails to give it a really massive space/galaxy theme.
Such a gorgeous polish
I adore this polish! It's like a galaxy on the nails. The reflective particles are sooooo pretty.
