goddess of the moon.

this shimmering magnetic lacquer reflects a myriad of divine purple hues. pushing and pulling pigments with every movement, it lights up the night like selene herself.

SELENE is a purple-to-magenta magnetic lacquer filled with holographic glitter that reveals a silver stripe.

note: all orders with magnetic lacquers include one free magnetic wand.

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.

size: 12ml

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.

Pretty polish, but not as advertised

Looking at the promotional images what I expected to get was a dark eggplant purple with a bright magenta sparkle and band of lilac purple when magnetized, a bright galaxy in deep space, but what I got was a blue toned, not very dark lavender with a tiny hint of magenta only under intense flash with a weak band of lilac when magnetized. It's a pretty purple polish don't get me wrong, but the photos are deceptive and not a realistic depiction of what you will get. This is my third magnetic polish from Mooncat and all three have had this issue. Putting it over black polish somewhat helps get closer to the advertised pictures but not close enough. The magnetic stripe effect is not strong for me as well which is disappointing despite following the instructions listed. I have ordered a holographic and multichrome polish through Mooncat and they came as advertised and I adore them, but I have a real issue with their magnetics so far. I can't in good faith give this polish anything higher than a 3 star because of that which is a shame because it's pretty, it just doesn't deliver on what is advertised.

Hard application

The color is beautiful, but I can't get the magnet to work on this one.

I love selene over black. It makes the magnetic color more pop out
