Today I was on the hunt for China Glaze’s The Hunger Games Collection. I struck out at two Sally’s – the displays were so picked over, so I grabbed two polishes from the Magnetix collection. While I was sharing my Hunger Games woes checking out, the sales lady reminded me of a third Sally’s close by….
But I digress… I picked up Pull Me Close and Cling On. Pull Me Close is a dusty grey/blue that’s right up my alley. I’ve been wanting to try Magnetic polish for a long time – but I didn’t want to spend the money on Nails Inc and without reading reviews about the one’s that are at Wags – didn’t want to waste my money.
The deal at Sally’s was buy two polishes + get the magnet free – I’m not sure if that’s how it works everywhere or not. Seems to me that a magnet should come with the magnetic polish free of charge…
The directions call for a base coat + one coat of polish and also recommend doing one nail at a time. Once you get the hang of it, the magnet is easy to use, it has mini ledges/guides to keep you from hitting your nail against the magnet – though I did a few times anyway. No big deal, just wipe it clean and start over.
Overall, I’m loving these and will probably pick up a few more polishes. It’s fun, the dry time is short (which is always a plus for me), and you can get 3+ looks from each.
So, if you’ve been waiting to jump on the magnetic polish train – go ahead and grab some Magnetix.
Make it a great day!
