Cat Eye Magnet
The Lecenté Cat Eye Magnet is designed to be used with the Lecenté Magnetic Powders to create cat eye effect nail art designs.
Use the larger side of the magnet to draw the particles together. Use the round end to push the particles outwards. The rectangular magnet can be removed from the holder to change polarity.

Magnetic Cat Eye Powders Step By Step
Please note you can mix the Lecenté Magnetic pigments into Top Coats, gel colours, or even mix them together for extra shade effects. You only need a tiny amount as the pigment needs to be able to move around inside the product to get the desired effect. Too much and there will be no movement.
- Apply your chosen base colour to your nails and cure
- Put some Top Coat and your chosen cat eye pigment (you only want tiny amount, a small grain of rice size to a good ‘blob’ of product) onto your mixing palette
- Mix really well with your gel brush and apply to the entire nail – do not cure
- Using the Lecenté magnet, hover over the nail for a few seconds, while the pigment collects, or move into your desired design* and then when you are happy cure the nail
- Top Coat and cure
*If you are unhappy with your design when using your magnet, using your gel brush, smooth back over the design to refresh the pigment and start from step 4 again.
The Lecenté magnet has two different magnets – one at each end. Each will create different effects and shapes. You can also slide out, or remove, the rectangular magnet from the holder to change the angle you can use it at, adjusting the polarity of the magnet for your designs.
