China Glaze Magnetix Review and GIVEAWAY!

On Saturday, 21 January, 2012 by carinaeletoile

Magnetic nail polish seems to be on everyone’s radar…and when I first saw it, I had to have it. That was over 4 years ago. Now it seems like this will be the trend for this year. That crackle shiz is tired and old. I hope it doesn’t happen that way for metallics.

Come on over and see what I’m offering!


I have to say, China Glaze really surprised me with this collection – it is everything that –> LCN <– wasn’t.

One of the things with the China Glaze Magnetix collection is that you have to make sure that you shake it up really well. If you don’t, the magnetic particles will not distribute evenly throughout the polish. When that happens, you won’t get a pattern when you hold the magnet over it.

Let me say the magnet that accompanies the polishes…it is AWESOME!!! I had a good grip on it because it is U shaped – on one tip of the U, there is the diagonal stipes. On the other end of the U is the star pattern. At the base of the U is the chevron pattern. That pattern was the most difficult and frankly, boring. I know that the  –> Nails, Inc. <– stuff worked, but China Glaze nailed it right on the money for me. There was a learning curve, but it was nowhere as steep and anger inducing as LCN.

The formula needs a good round of shaking for the magnetic particles to distribute evenly before use. I learned through trial and error on that. Formula rocked because it dried fairly fast and I only needed one coat to get it all done. Personally, I found I had better luck without using a base coat. I know China Glaze recommends using it, but I had better results without using one.

With that out of the way, on to the pictures.

Remember how I said that the chevron pattern was the most disappointing? Well, you can see why on my pointer finger, the color is Drawn To You. For some reason, the chevron magnet refused to work with any of the China Glaze Magnetix colors. It also refused to work with my Nails Inc magnetic polish and the LCN ones, too. I think it just wasn’t as strong as the star pattern or he diagonal one. I’m loving the star pattern with Instant Chemistry, aren’t you? It’s this deep dark purple and when the magnet pulled the particles up, this beauty totally shines. I’m loving it.
