Warning: Pic Heavy! ☺
Today I'm going to show you swatches of one of the new Icing Magnetix colors I picked up last week! I had seen swatches of these online, and since China Glaze hasn't released their collection in stores yet, I wanted to give these a try.
The first polish I'm going to show you is a dusty, pink and purple metallic with magenta shimmer running through it. You can find these at Icing stores, and they are normally 'buy one, get one half off.' What's kind of lame about this collection, though, is that there aren't any names for these colors. :(
Basically, the premise of magnetic polish is that you paint your nails with the color, and then, while the polish is still wet, you hold the magnet really close to your nail without touching it. The magnet forms a design in the nail polish as you hold it to your nail. It definitely takes a little practice. I'm not going to lie, I had to do a whole hand over because I kept accidentally touching the magnet to my nail and ruining my polish. ☺
The outer cap comes with instructions on how to use the polish.
This design reminds me of shark gill slits. Yikes.
