Pull Me Close with China Glaze Magnetix

Oh how I love you China Glaze! You never disappoint me and are always stepping up your game! Introducing the new China Glaze Magnetix line of polishes! Yay! Basically this is a magnetic nail polish formula with tiny metal pigments that comes to life using the magnetic force of the U shaped magnet device. You have to purchase each separately though.  
The shade I chose was called Pull me close, which is a rich deep grey. You have to apply the polish onto one nail and then hold the magnet over it which the polish is still wet for the pattern to emerge. The areas around the pattern become darker in colour. The U shaped device has 3 patterns, called attraction arrow, line and star. 
Now while the process itself is simple, it took me a few tries to get it right. Don’t worry about the opacity of the polish; one coat is all you need to get a rich colour. The problem I encountered initially was that while trying to get the magnet close to the nail, I kept touching the polish itself. It does have a nail guard but just on one side so it didn’t help me much. Another problem for me was that since my nail is small, the star and arrow designs needed precise placement for me to get a centered effect. Most time the pattern was off to the side, which looked pretty also but not what I really wanted. 
Despite my initial issues, I got it to work a bit better for me after a few tries. This technology fascinated me a lot and I had a great time asking my coworkers to figure out how I got the desired effect. Are you a big China Glaze fan? Will you be venturing into the land of Magnetix polishes?
Happy Magnetix!

  2. This is such a cool effect! I'm totally jealous of your nails! I can't get mine to grow past my finger tips for some reason. Do you use anything in particular for nail growth? :)

    1. Nope they are naturally strong but it wasn't always like that. When I was a teenager, they were really weak. On another note I'm envious of your hair!

Happy One Year Blogoversary!

One year already? OMG! Time really flies when you're having fun . I really enjoyed my one year with you. I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on.

But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass.
