China Glaze Magnetix is a new six-piece collection of magnetic polish. Obviously.
The shades in this collection are Attraction, Cling On, Drawn To You, Instant Chemistry, Pull Me Close and You Move Me.
The magnet that China Glaze made to use with these has three different designs on it including a star, a chevron pattern and stripes.
There is a handy little slot next to each magnet that sits atop your finger so it’s easier to keep the magnet from touching your polish.
The rules are the same with this magnetic polish as the others. You paint one coat of polish one nail at a time. Then place the magnet right on top of your nail, holding steady for 5-10 seconds.
One thing to note is you don’t want to hold it TOO close or the polish pulls off your nail and attaches onto the magnet.
Attraction is a deep greyish black. This polish was thick enough and opaque enough to just use one coat and have it look good still. I used this with the star pattern.
Drawn To You
Drawn To You is a grape purple color. I wasn’t thrilled with the opacity of this color using just one coat. It was a little patchy and when I tried using two, the magnet didn’t work. So I wish it was more opaque, but it’s a pretty color. Here I tried the various magnet shapes.
I feel like the magnet wasn’t as good with these as some others I have tried. Maybe it wasn’t strong enough? Some of the patterns don’t look as crisp and cut as I would like.
Availability: Mid-February officially, but possibly at etailers sooner.
Pricing: $10.00 each and the magnet is also $10.00.
What do you think about these magnetic polishes? Are they too expensive for you to be interested in?
