China Glaze Magnetix Collection

I recently got the opportunity to try out two polishes from China Glaze Magnetix collection on the website.

These polishes are made with magnetic particles that form designs when a magnetic is placed over it.

China Glaze Magnetix comes in six different shades with one all-in-one magnet.

 The magnet has three patterns: Star, Chevron & Diagonal Lines. Out of the three patterns the star was my favorite!
For best results first apply a base coat to clean, bare nails. Then apply a coat of colored polish and immediately hold the design magnet over the polish for 10-15 seconds.
The experience:
I found this kinda difficult at first. I was adding to much polish and the design wouldn't "come" through. After a while when I only added one coat, I was more successful. These pictures below are from my first attempts:
As weird as this seems... I love the fact that the polish tried quietly. Also the colors are rich & vibrant.

 The con in terms of the magnet is that you have to work fast. As soon as you apply the one coat, apply the magnet ASAP. I had to learn how to master getting the magnet close enough not to ruin the polish.

Overall, I find the idea of magnetic polish pretty cool. I probably would only put them on my accent nails. Perfect way to change up a look with very little efort.

What do you think of magnetic nail polishes? 
Have you tried any before?

My Nail Army: OPI, China Glaze & Color Club

It took me years to form the perfect nail army. I was a victim of chipping and smudged nails after my mani's but now I'm saved!

First I start with Color Club nail polish as a base coat.
After applying my color, I seal it with China Glaze No Chip Top Coat. I this a durable top coat that lenghtens my nailpolish wear.
Lastly I spray my nails with OPI Rapid Dry. This makes them dry much faster!

So that is my routine! What is yours?
