Wet n Wild Magnetics and Imperial Nail Lacquer Dandruff

Hello Everyone!! I have a rather large post today, but got a few colors to show you as well as a comparison!  I hope you enjoy!!
First up, I have Wet n Wild Magnetic polish Don't Break the Circuit.  I was in love with the shimmer of this one, but unfortunately, it isn't as noticeable on the nail :-(  This is 1 coat with no top coat.  It applied extremely well and is opaque with one coat.  I like to lay a base first for my magnetic polishes (that is what other brands suggest).

I then painted a nail and quickly magntized it using the cap.  I find that the polish dries quickly, so it is best to paint one nail at a time and magntizing right away. 
For me, I found this magnet was difficult to use.  It might be because I'm so used to Nails Inc. with their little ridge to prevent getting to close to the nail.  I found you have to get close but still make sure you don't bump your nail.  My pinky got bumped if you notice below.  For different angles of the lines, I tried turning the magnet slightly.  I went to apply Wicked Fast and only ended up using the top coat for my ringer finger and as you can see, it somewhat ruined in the magnetic look.  I suggest waiting fully for the magnetic polish to dry before adding a top coat.
I picked this up from my local Walgreens store for $4.99.

I then layered 1 coat of Imperial Nail Lacquer Dandruff over top.  I finished it off with Seche Vite top coat.  I love the magnetic lines coming through the white glitter.  I also really liked the combination of the darker blue with the bright white.  It really made the glitter pop!

You can find Dandruff on Etsy from the shop Imperial Nail Lacquer.  A mini is $5, but you can also request this in full size for $9.

Next I tried Wet n Wild No-Gas Electrically Charged magnetic polish.  This is a sort of grayish-black color with a green shimmer that in some angles also looks purple.  A duochrome magnetic?!  YES please!!  Now again, I was a tad disappointed because the bottle was better, but it still looked cool on the nail.  This is 2 coats with no top coat.  I probably only needed one, but I think my nails had a ridge to them or something so I just did 2 coats.

See that green shimmer!?
Here is a quick comparison of the Wet n Wild magnet vs. the Nails Inc. magnet.  As you can see, Nails Inc. has that little nub that you rest just above your cuticle, allowing the magnet to get close without touching. 
Wet n Wild magnet
Nails Inc. magnet

I decided to use the Nails Inc magnet on my pinky and middle fingers and use the Wet n Wild magnet on my index and ring fingers.  You can see where I bumped my nail using the Wet n Wild magnet.  I felt like I couldn't get a good magnetic pull without getting it extremely close to the nail, which then the slightest movement caused me to touch the magnet :-( lol  I might just stick with the Nails Inc. magnet to make my life easier, because I do really like both of the magnetic Wet n Wild polishes!  The shimmer in this turned out fantastic!  I really like it.

Next I comparied Lynnderella Love, Lace, and Lilacs to Imperial Nail Lacquer Dandruff.   Here are a few bottle shots.  You can see the Lynnderella has a finer glitter throughout, but otherwise they are pretty similar.

I used 1 coat of Lynnderella Love, Lace, and Lilacs over my ring and index fingers.  I placed Dandruff over my middle and pinky fingers.  When looking at these two compared and over this base, I actually prefer the way Dandruff stands out.  The Lynderella is beautiful too, but to me it isn't as bold because of the finer glitters throughout, almost giving it a blizzard look. (I should not be thinking about snow already!!)

Again, the Wet n Wild magnetic polishes should be at local drug stores.  I found mine at Walgreens.  You can find Dandruff on Etsy from the shop Imperial Nail Lacquer. A mini is $5, but you can also request this in full size for $9.
I hope you enjoyed today's long post!!! I know it was a long one lol :-)
Have a great day!
Much Love,
*Drandruff has been sent to me for review. All thoughts and opinions are that of my own.*


  1. I love the first Wet N Wild magnetic polish that you swatched. The index and middle finger turned out great! I never picked up any of the magnetic polishes since I'm on a no-buy but I might have to make an exception for these cheaper alternatives :-) Thanks for sharing, Dandruff is awesome! The name is hilarious too

  2. Love the Wet n Wild/Dandruff combo
