China Glaze Magnetix Polishes - An Overview

Here's the batch of China Glaze Magnetix polishes we were able to acquire.

After applying a base coat and letting it dry, apply the Magnetix polish.You'll want to do this process one nail at a time. Next, carefully, and quickly hold the magnet over the nail.  Hold still, or the design will end up more swirly than anticipated. Also, resist the urge to look before the design has set. Another novice mistake that we made was accidentally touching the magnet to the wet polish. It's probably going to happen to you at first, but you will get the hang of it. Overall, we like the magnetic polishes, and especially the China Glaze magnet.

Here's our first attempt with each color:

Drawn to You,  a purplish hue
Pull Me Close, a silverfish blue that reminds of all the shades of denim
You Move Me, a metallic tan accentuated with chocolaty magnetic marks
Cling On, a surprise favorite that is much prettier than it appears in the bottle.

If you are sick of shatter polishes and want something new to try, then China Glaze Magnetix is for you!

China Glaze Magnetix - Drawn to You

More Magnetix colors! This one is in the lavender-purple range of shades and is called, 'Drawn To You.' If you haven't used the China Glaze Magnet yet, it is a fun, easy way to do random nail 'art.'

The magnet works on specialized magnetic polishes. Using the China Glaze Magnet, you hold the preferred design over wet polish to give a unique look to your manicure.

We are still perfecting our technique. It's a fun process as long as the magnet doesn't touch the polish.

 Happy polishing!

Harvest Moon - China Glaze Capitol Colours from The Hunger Games

We've tried several shades from the Capitol Colours collection previously. When we were shopping, we were drawn to the bronzy color of Harvest Moon.  This is a rich shade with a metallic finish, but it doesn't look too dark.

Our pictures aren't the greatest this time around, but we really like the polish. We added Luxe and Lush to the ring finger as shown below. Luxe and Lush offers a nice accent with the iridescent peachy pieces, don't you think?

We decided to add Luxe and Lush all over our manicure.

China Glaze Magnetix - Pull Me Close

We are still having fun with the China Glaze Magnetix collection. Today, we are posting one of our favorite Magnetix colors, Pull Me Close. However, this polish did prove to be the most difficult to photograph. Even imperfect magnetic lines still look good with this lacquer.

It reminds us of shiny denim with an added twist of the darker magnetic lines. Here is a picture of the star on the thumb nail.

We got a lot of compliments on this polish, which always a good sign. The rest of the China Glaze Magnetix Collection is linked below.
