~Apply a glob 'o clear nail polish on image and along edges, but MAKE HASTE because polish will dry & get sticky quickly.

~Once you are complete with coating your personal magnets, set aside in dry cool isolated area for an hour or so.

~Cherish your Personal Magnet and share the love with someone you love.

CREATOR'S NOTE:
* Be sure the nail polish is semi liquidy, if nail polish is too gooey and stiff then the coating process will not be complete. Instead, the outcome being streaky & uneven.
