Layla Magneffect "Turquoise Wave"

Today I'd like to show you a magnetic polish from the Italian brand "Layla Cosmetics". It's called "Turquoise Wave" & is blue-ish green polish with a metallic finish. But fear not, even though it's metallic (& therefore dries a teensy bit brushstroke-y), it looks absolutely gorgeous.

You would want to hold the magnet as close to the nail as possible for ~ 5 seconds, then the stripes will show up.
The polish contains iron particles that react to the magnet & form the following pattern:
