DIY Nail Art Designs: Lian Qi Er Magnetic Nail Polish Review

Updated on May 14, 2012

I’ve recently received a bottle of Lian Qi Er magnetic nail polish from Born Pretty Store and would like to share my thoughts and opinions on the product. I’ve been hoping to get my hands on some magnetic nail polish for my DIY nail art designs, so I’m sure you can imagine my excitement when it arrived!


I Love this Product!

Initially I thought about dividing this Hub into two sections: what I liked and what I didn’t. I then realized that there’s nothing I dislike about the polish. That in itself says a lot. I’ve already used it and I’m over the moon with the results.

Packaging and Appearance

The polish comes in a large 15ml bottle that is almost identical to that of OPI, so it looks stunning. The bottle itself is sturdy, and the brush is long and broad so it’s easy to apply the polish quickly. Applying the polish quickly is a real plus, because you have to hold the magnet over it while it’s still wet.


The polish comes with a magnet and sells for $6.38. If you’ve purchased other magnet polishes before, you’ll know that a bottle of magnetic polish can sell for up to $18 depending on the brand you purchase. Then you still have to get the magnets separately. The price of some magnets can go up to $20 each, so it’s easy to see why this is such a great deal.

The Polish

The polish gives great coverage and is of a good consistency as well. It’s so easy to apply as well. The runny consistency of the polish makes it a breeze to get onto the nail quickly and the broad brush really helps too. It contains a lot of pigment, so you can get great coverage with just one thickish layer.

The Color

I received L012, which is a dark purple, and I absolutely adore the color. It’s darker in real life than it is on the website but I really like that. Purple is one of my favorite colors so I may be a little biased, but it’s stunning in my opinion. Once the magnet’s been applied you’ll see dark purple and light purple areas, and when the light hits it, it’s especially noticeable. There are a number of colors available, so I can see myself purchasing at least a few more of these.


I’ve not worn this polish for very long, so I’ll have to see how it wears. I believe that with the use of a good top and base coat, this should last just as well as other polishes. I’m curious to see whether the iron powder particles in it might make it last longer.

Customer Service

I cannot say enough about Born Pretty Store and the customer service I’ve received there. Items generally take a little longer to get to my part of the world, but this is the second package they’ve sent and it actually arrived sooner than the first one. It took just over a week for the package to enter the country, but due to the Easter weekend and a whole barrage of South African public holidays it took quite a while longer to get through customs.

The packaging was great as well, and everything comes packaged in padded envelopes and fragile items are always wrapped and taped up very well. I’ve not had an item break in the mail yet, and the way they package their orders makes it unlikely that anything will get damaged.

If you’d like to see what’s on offer, or get yourself a bottle of magnetic nail polish to use for your DIY nail art designs, you can head on over to Born Pretty Store and have a look at the selection on offer. There are not only nail art supplies but also makeup and other beauty and personal care items. Shipping is free worldwide, so that’s another handy way to save. If you see something you like, use this coupon ATELLW21 (valid until 12 Dec 2012)to get 5% off your purchase.
