Color: Drawn To You (China Glaze)
Retail Price: $6.50 (USD)
This shade is from China Glaze’s spring 2012 Magnetix collection. It is a shimmery, bright, magnetic purple, and the perfect nail polish if you’re looking to create some fast and easy nail art!
You could simply wear this nail polish on its own, but that’s obviously not what it’s really meant for. When you buy your own bottle of Drawn To You, make sure you also buy the magnets that China Glaze sells (I bought mine for $5.99 (USD) at Sally Beauty Supply). Each magnet comes with three designs, which enable you to create diagonal lines like in my manicure, above, pointed chevron shapes, and starburst shapes.
The thing to remember with magnetic nail polish is the magic happens while the polish is still wet. So, start by painting one nail with your magnetic polish. Then, hold your magnet above the nail while the polish is still wet. Wait 5-10 seconds, and when you remove the magnet—presto!—you’re left with a chic, easily replicated nail art design. Do the same to finish up the rest of your nails.
Like I said, you can wear these nail polishes without taking advantage of their magnetic tendencies. I think if you even want to consider doing this, the best thing to do would be to only “magnetize” one or two of your nails to serve as accent nails, just like in many other traditional nail art manicures.
The formula for this nail polish is really great! I’m only wearing one coat of Drawn To You on my nails, and as you can see, I absolutely got total coverage. I was so impressed! Application is really easy, too. I thought it would apply streaky, but it actually goes on so smooth. It’s almost impossible to mess up a manicure using this nail polish!
Magnetic polish isn’t new, but it’s beginning to catch on. Prior to the Magnetix collection, all the magnetic polish I’d come across was fairly pricey. So, even though it’s a little annoying to have to purchase the magnet for the Magnetix collection separately (thankfully, you only need to purchase one magnet to use with all the nail polish in this collection), even after you add together the cost of the magnet and one bottle of nail polish, the total is considerably less than other magnetic polish out there. Paired with the really saturated, bright finish? You honestly can’t afford to miss out on the Magnetix collection!
