China Glaze Cling On (Magnetix)

I have been waiting so long for magnetic polishes to come back into style. My darling L'Oreal Star Magnets were my pride and joy and I was afraid of using them because... well, magnetic polish wasn't so very common. But now... now we're getting a bunch. And it's been fabulous.

So far, I've been pretty impressed with the ChG Magnetix collex. I didn't buy the entire thing sight unseen (I learned my lesson from the LA Girl Glitters...) but I did pick up three and the magnet (of course). So far, they've exceeded my expectations. I am in love!

First of all... haha, the name. Second, mmmm.... mossy green magnetic polish. I'm sure others have documented the process of applying the polish (one nail at a time, I prefer to do two coats of polish, and hold the magnet for 10 seconds). This is one of three designs: it's supposed to be chevron-like and it turns out like that... when I don't somehow misplace the magnet and get only half my nail (which then just looks dumb). Wear was fantastic for the two days that I had it on: didn't chip, didn't shrink, looked great til the end (although the end came quickly). My heart was sinking when I was applying it: it looked streaky, pearly and sheerish. But then the magnet changed it all! The pearly metallic moved so nicely into the chevron-ish pattern, leaving behind a mossy jelly color. So it's kind of minty green metallic interspersed with moss jelly. Pretty damn awesome!

I'm happy with the color. The magnets make some nice shapes. I haven't bought any yet.

I am liking what I am seeing of the CG Magnetics - I like that the designs are soft and they have more shades that are not quite the same as the other lines have sort of copied from each other. I need to get to a Sally's and see if they have any left.
