First Magnetic Mani

OK, ignore my crappy magnet job and check out the color combination....

2 Coats of Essence Steel Me (in a trade from lovely Buzzwheedle)...in retrospect, I would have done better using a close color for the undies and 1 thicker coat of the magnetic polish.

But here we go...like I said, ignore my lousy magnet work. 1 coat of Pure Ice, Oh Baby over the top...

 Some of my nails have such a sharp C-curve that I only got striping across the arches.
 Pink duochrome shimmer...*sigh*

I picked up a China glaze magnet from Sally Beauty Supply, and they work tolerably well, but I still want to play with making my own. 1 coat of Out The Door over the top glossed this mani right up!
I really love how the combination of textures and colors looks....might get me through the wimpy lines, hehehehe! What do you think? I know not everyone like magnetic polishes...but I love the options plus the metallic aspect...love me some metallic polish!

You did a pretty nice job, especially for af first. I used a magnet from the fridge. I tried a few, and one is now promoted to be the nailartmagnet lol.

I got the entire Magnetix line and still haven't gotten up the courage to use them. These look so nice though. I really like the combination

Buzzwheedle-I will have to play with some other magnets now...thank-you!

Anita-That was me with the 2 I got from Buzzwheedle...I was afraid to use them, so I practiced first on flat plastic (from an old package). I am glad you like the combo :)

Thank-you both *hug*

Sneakerette...my magnetic polish didn't have the pink/blue flashes! I used a sheer polish from Pure Ice called Oh, Baby!
