Magnetic Clouds

I picked up my first magnetic polish this week.  I have had my hands on Claire's and Nails, Inc. but I changed my mind at the last moment and did not purchase them.  While I was out shopping with my sister and her family this past weekend we visited Hot Topic where they had Color Club Magnetic Force.  I didn't pick them up that day...bit I did later! :)

The first one I have to share with you is Electro-Midnight.

I didn't want to just apply the polish so I decided to do clouds.  First I applied 2 coats of NYC Sidewalkers.  This is a nice gray polish, no application problems and nice dry time.

I added the first layer of clouds using Essence Let's Get Lost.  Love this blue!  Opaque in one coat, easy application, fast dry time, awesome color!

Now for Electro-Midnight! This is a thick polish. One coat looks like two!  I did have some trouble getting the color off my cuticles.  I also had trouble getting the magnet to work. I had to hold it really close and wait longer than 15 seconds.  Maybe it was just because it was my first time using this polish.  Did anyone else have trouble with this?  But it is a beautiful color!
Also 2 coats of NYC.

Can you see were the magnet got too close? :)


  1. omg! Hot Topic carries Color Club?? Are their prices decent? I might have to pay them a visit... Thanks for sharing!

  2. They only carry the magnetic polishes. Wish they carried other colors! They are $7 a bottle.

    1. Aw bummer. It'd be awesome if they carried even a small selection. I may still have to pay them a visit and check out their magnetic polishes... Electro-Midnight is stunning :)

  3. A great idea! I haven't seen magnetic nail polish used on only part of the nail. I love it!

  4. You're very creative with your manis. This is very pretty. :)

  5. Normally I don't like magnetic polishes but I love this! It's a gorgeous colour and it's a unique way of using it :)

  6. Love it! Very different, I particularly like how you combined two techniques! :)

  7. Omg such a good idea! Stop being so creative, makes the rest of us look so boring :P The first time I ever used a magnetic polish I had the same problem of touching the magnet to my nail. Thats probably why I only wore it a couple times because I lost patience with it. I hate having to start over!

  8. This looks amazing!!! What an awesome idea!

  9. This looks awesome! Love blue clouds :)

  10. I did an experiment that if you don't point out flaws, no one will notice! Trust me-people didn't notice!!! I love your nails, your blog and your designs!
