This is 2 coats, and I hovered close to the nail(without touching) right after painting the 2nd coat. One nail at a time. I held the magnet for about 5-10 seconds over each nail and this is how they turned out. I am really happy with them!! I couldn't leave it as just a base color, though, so I did a small holo glitter gradient on the tips.
Look at the gorgeous blue shimmer on the magnetic parts!!
