Magnetic Tape

I wanted to share my second magnetic polish with you but, as you know, I can't just show you swatches!  I had to come up with a really interesting design to showcase the polish.  I came up with a crazy, taping mani. Not only do you get the magnetic polish but I also used a new polish from the Hunger Games collection.

I started by applying 2 coats of China Glaze Stone Cold and White on White. Stone Cold looks exactly like Zoya Loredana.  So now I have 2 gray mattes, oh well!



Ready for it????  I applied 2 coats of Color Club Magnetic Force in Hipnotic. I would call this a red, pinky, purple color.  Hipnotic is not as thick as Electro-Midnight and needed 2 coats.  I had a much better time with the magnet this time.  This polish drys fast, so you need to get the magnet on top of the nail as soon as possible.



I cut up small strips of Scotch tape and began my crazy taping! 


Right Hand: (You will notice that later in the pictures my right thumb looks different. I had some taping issues and ended up having to redo my thumb.)

I had some issues with Picasa and this is the only picture of my right hand.
