Positively in Love

That's the name of this polish, but it also describes how I feel about it:


This one is from the new magnetic collection by China Glaze, Magnetix II.  I also used China Glaze's new magnet.

It took me quite a while to jump on the magnetic polish bandwagon, but now I'm kind of obsessed with them!  So far I've only used the China Glaze ones though. 

I really am in love with this color - it's the most gorgeous black cherry shade.  All the magnetic polishes I've used so far display a fascinating chatoyancy in various lights; I think that's what I love most about them.  Another thing to love:  most of the time, I can get away with one coat of polish!  But if I don't get a good magnetic impression, there seems to be no harm done in layering on another coat for a do-over.  Topcoat adds even more depth to the effect.

How about you guys?  Magnetic polishes, yay or nay?

    1. I was never this into it until I discovered "nail blogs" a couple years ago. Now I'm obsessed!

  3. I think it's amazing! I have one that I haven't tried yet, usually I am in such in a hurry! I love the swirl.

  4. I love magnetic polishes! The first batch of China Glaze polishes/magnets were a little weak, but it looks like a very strong pattern with this one. I love that there are some non-wavy line, non-chevron magnet patterns now.
