she’s a magic maker.

no, it’s not a trick of the eye–this mystical lacquer is shockingly real. the magnetic multichrome shifts from pink to orange to green to gold over a deep magnetic base. scattered gold holographic glitter electrifies the effect.

application: used alone, this lacquer will have a textured finish when dry. we recommend topping it off with our MATTE MADE IN HELL or SPEED DEMON TOP COAT for a silky smooth, long-lasting finish.


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

MAGNETIC LACQUERS

HOW-TO

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.

Illusionist- So beautiful!

This is such a beautiful shade. I love how it shifts to almost black, to dark red, with a rose gold sort of shimmer in the areas the magnet has touched. I love the scattered holo glitter throughout the polish, it just adds that extra something that tops it all off beautifully. I can't wait to play around with this shade some more!

a lot darker than the image shows

I went for 3 coats for fully opaque, no black base. The magnetic sheen ranges from magenta to green, depending on the angle. I would have loved to see a little more of that orange flare that shows up in the pictures, but it's still really pretty. Base color is a incredibly deep crimson wine, with 3 coats it almost looks black. The holographic glitter is not overbearing, it's a surprisingly subtle touch that adds more sparkle.

Like it!

My only problem with this is I can’t put a top coat on without it losing its effect? I might be doing something wrong but other than that it’s gorgeous!!

#1 Nail Polish

This is unlike any nail color I’ve ever had. It looks just like the pictures. The application of the magnetic polish takes some practice and definitely patience, but the payoff is amazing. I got so many compliments on my nails the last time I wore this.

Obsessed!

I saw an ad for Mooncat and thought there was no way this nail polish would look as good in person as it does in pictures - I bought Illusionist to try and I am OBSESSED! It came out looking exactly as pictured, and it is surprisingly long lasting. The magnetic wand was easy to use, too. I will absolutely be buying more from this brand!
