Cat eye gel polishes are a type of gel polish that creates a unique, shimmering effect that resembles the eye of a cat. They are applied to the nails like regular gel polish and cured under UV or LED light. They typically have a magnetic pigment in the formula that creates a 3D effect. When the nails are exposed to a magnetic tool, it creates a curling effect that resembles the movement of a cat's eye. These gels come in a wide range of colors, from classic to trendy shades, and can be used to create a variety of different looks, from solid-colored nails to intricate nail art designs. They are known for providing a long-lasting, glossy finish that can last up to several weeks without chipping or peeling. They are often used as a standalone design or can be paired with other nail art techniques to create unique designs.
