Kiko stripes magnet (for magnetic polish)

I picked up a stripes nail magnet from Kiko for a bargain price of £2. I have so many nail polishes, including magnetic ones, and I loved that I could purchase this separately and use it with what I already own.

At least that’s what I was thinking. The magnet is flat and quite large, which should be a good thing, but this also makes it really difficult to hold steady.

I have no pictures to show of my nails because I found the whole process so frustrating and eventually I gave up and just painted my nails as usual. The magnets I own from Nails Inc and FashionistA all have ridges to help you position them across the nail, which makes it much easier to hold the magnet steady and at a good height to get the effect. Because the Kiko magnet is flat I really struggled to hold it close without touching my nails, and the times I did manage that I didn’t get an effect.

I am assuming it is all to do with the magnet design and that it is not actually faulty? I would love to hear from anyone who has tips on how to make this magnet work…..otherwise the new Barry M offerings are calling.
