Review of Born Pretty 3D Chameleon Magnetic Aurora Series

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I’m sure you must have seen pictures of my swatches of Born Pretty’s collection of chameleon magnetic polishes. There are 6 colors in this “Magnetic Aurora” series that span the spectrum from magenta pink, coppery bronze, teal, to purple, and they’re all gorgeous!

Top row (L to R): BP-MA01 Astral Realm, BP-MA02 Lightning, BP-MA03 The Gravity (rebranded The Summit). Bottom row (L to R): BP-MA04 Greenland Night (rebranded Night Imply), BP-MA05 Fairbanks Arts (rebranded An Art), BP-MA06 Aurora Borealis.

Each of these elegant boxes is wrapped in plastic wrap, and a label on the side of the box shows the item number and the name of the color.

The reverse side lists the ingredients, although this part of the packaging remains the same across all Born Pretty polishes.

What these polishes are known for are their multi-toned chameleon effect in addition to their reactivity to strong magnets. When magnets are applied over the wet polish, stunning 3D color shifts can be achieved. Please note that regular refrigerator magnets are not meant to be used with this set and will not work with these polishes. There are plenty of nail art magnet styles out there that you can purchase that are compatible with these lacquers, so there are a lot of design possibilities.

Even in the bottle, you can see there are at least 2 tones to each polish depending on how the light hits the surface.

Review of Born Pretty Magnetic Nail Polish in Aurora Borealis BP-MA06

Recently I showed you a galaxy manicure that featured a gorgeous magnetic polish from the Born Pretty 3D Magnetic Aurora Series called Aurora Borealis. It’s so stunning that I wanted to do a quick review on it, so let’s get started!

This polish comes in the updated Born Pretty packaging. The box instantly makes you think the product is more high end than your drugstore brands, but it also serves the purpose of listing the ingredients and protecting the bottle during shipment. The front side has a cutout window so you can see the color of the polish clearly.

The top of the box also has a sticker sealing the top flap closed while the bottom of the box lists the name of the polish on a sticker.

The bottle itself holds 6 mL of lacquer, so it’s about half the size of what you would normally get from most drugstore brands. No mixing ball is included inside, but you will find a medium sized flexible brush.

Magnetic Galaxy Manicure

Today I’m going to show you a cute little galaxy manicure that was inspired by a nail polish that I recently obtained. Because it’s a magnetic polish, I first painted my nails with Johnny from Julep to provide a dark base.

2 coats of black polish (Johnny from Julep) were applied over a base coat prior to doing anything.

The stunning polish I’m about to show you is Aurora Borealis from the Born Pretty 3D Magnetic Aurora Series, and it’s absolutely beautiful! It has a chameleon effect that shifts from turquoise to a reddish purple in addition to having magnetic qualities. I applied one coat of this over the black polish and then immediately held a cat eye magnet over each nail at a diagonal angle for a few seconds while the polish was still wet so the pattern could form. I swear that my nails actually do look like a real aurora borealis!

Aurora Borealis is a very appropriate name for this polish from Born Pretty.
