Review - Magnetix Nail Polish

                                                           "Blue Magnetix"
    
      So, I recently posted some current/upcoming nail trends of 2012 as a Pinterest board. I decided to invest in some magnetic nail polish, as well as the newest "liquid leather" nail polish from China Glaze. Magnetic nail polish, if you haven't heard of it yet, was introduced somewhere around October. There are many brands, but I have heard good things about Magnetix. This polish retails for around $7.99 at some drug-stores (I purchased mine at Rite-Aid) or local beauty stores. Ulta, to my surprise, does not seem to have any magnetic polish in stock whatsoever! Magnetic nail polish contains iron scraps. Each polish comes with two different magnets which you hold over your nails in order to manipulate the tiny pieces of iron into unique patterns. Magnetix offers a wavy and straight line pattern. You simply put on a heavy coat of the polish on one nail, and then hold the magnet hovering over your finger for 15-20 seconds. When you remove it, the polish is left with almost 3D or airbrushed-looking stripes. It's really pretty genius!


                                                           "Black Magnetix"

The magnets have a rubber backing, and a groove in both ends so that they fit just at the end of your nail. The first time I immediately jammed my nail into the underside of the magnet and ruined it..so be careful to let the magnet hover. Also, make sure to hold it in place for the allotted time -- less than 15-20 seconds will not produce the pattern..and once it dries, you're out of luck. If you mess up a nail, putting a second coat of polish sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't. I believe that you can put one coat initially and then use the magnet on the second coat if you are looking for a darker color, however, I found mine to be fine with just one coat. Magnetix offers a variety of colors including black, blue, and gold. The black sort of looks like an animal print! None of the polishes have identifying color names or numbers, so I am simply calling these products "blue" and "black". :) The polish dries extremely quickly even with a heavy coat, and seems pretty smudge resistant (unless jammed into the magnet). The polish comes in a little box if you are frantically searching for it at the store. The website listed on the box is: www.prettywomanusa.com - the creators suggest visiting for creative nail designs, but I couldn't find anything concerning the Magnetix line. To create patterns other than those shown on the rubber magnet, you can try rotating the magnet while your nails are drying. Here is how it turned out on my nails (they are short, so it's hard to see, sorry) and my moms!

  5. Water borne diseases were estimated to cause over 1.

    Large rakes or screens are used to get rid of these objects.
    In this case a treatment plant will collect and burn these gases, thus

  7. I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your website.
    It appears as though some of the text within your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my web browser because I've had this happen before.

  9. I don't leave a great deal of comments, however I read a ton of remarks
    here "Review - Magnetix Nail Polish". I actually do have 2 questions for you if
    it's okay. Is it simply me or do some of the responses appear like they are written by brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are writing at additional online
    sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you post a list of every one of all your social
    sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
