China Glaze Magnetix Cling On - Swatches and Review

Hello lovelies!! I went to Sally's over the weekend and took advantage of the sale they are having on the China Glaze Magnetix, if you buy 2 of the Magnetic polishes you get the magnet for free. Plus I used my 15% coupon for being a Sally's member and ended up getting all 3 items for $11. Pretty great deal!

I had a hard time deciding which colors I wanted, Cling On was at the top of my list (and it was the last one they had) but I had a hard time choosing between the others, I like them all. A lot. LOL I ended up choosing Instant Chemistry for my other one, which is the dark wine/purple color (I will have it posted soon). I wanted to start off with 2 and make sure I liked them before I bought the rest, now I am sure I need the rest. *wink*

Cling On is a taupey green color with a metallic/frosty finish but the magnet makes the "design" part of the nail an olive green. I love it and I am loving the magnets. Cling On was pretty sheer, I needed 3 coats for opacity, but it wasn't problematic to work with. Next time I might layer it over a similar color. I should have gotten a picture of the magnet but I forgot. But I guess that is what Google is for. LOL I will get a pic of it in my next Magnetix post. I did put a top coat on this after they were dry and had no issues.  As far as the magnet itself, it was easy to use BUT I have very curved nails and I had to move it from side to side a bit. Nothing horrible, it just took a little while to play with and figure out what worked.



*Excuse the doggie hair, not sure which furball that came from. LOL Probably Snickerdoodle, he was laying next to me while I was painting my nails*




What do you think of the China Glaze Magnetic Collection? Do you have any? If not, are you going to purchase some?

And as a bonus pic, the suspected culprit of the stray hair....

Snickerdoodle says hi!!

  2. Hi Snickerdoodle!! Great job on the star magnet. I couldn't get mine to go on straight. I guess I'll be getting more colors too eventually. I am trying to control myself right now.
    We'll see how long it lasts.

  5. Ha ha Snickerdoodle!! I am pretty "attracted" to magnetic polishes! I have about 20 of them most of them the gorgeous Nabi's found in Walgreen's. I never thought I would love them as much as I do but clearly owning 20 of them means I am in major love with them! I have a lot of trouble lining up the CG magnet I prefer the Icing or Rite Aid magnets so usually use those with all my magnetics. You did a fantastic job with the star image!
