China Glaze Sparks will Fly

My name is Leslie and I'm a late adopter. There, I said it. I could have introduced this post and acted like I was all up in the magnetic polish scene...but alas, I will admit this is the first magnetic polish I've ever tried. What kind of nail blogger am I? Finally, at the insistence of my daughter, I broke down and bought Sparks Will Fly, a medium blue from the China Glaze Magnetix II Collection released this Fall.

Where has this been all my life? I read the instructions and it says to use the magnet after one coat. How could that be? The polish will be splotchy and uneven after a single coat. But lo and behold, the formula was magical. Seriously, that is the only word to describe it. It was a creamy, one coat, full-control dream. It reminded me of the first time I used a-england Galahad (the creamiest, bestest polish I've ever polished). [cue angelic chorus sound]

So what am I missing here? Why can't all polish work like this? Is there some awful ionic/magnetic chain reaction that will cause this formula to chip in a day? Because if not...stick them ions in every single polish! Forget the magnet.

Now the magnet part - let's just say I need some practice. I used the checked design. It looks like denim or tie-dyed fabric. I actually really like it. If you want to see how the magnet designs are SUPPOSED to work...see the PolishAholic's swatches here.

So now, I shall be tempted by every magnetic polish on the market. And the second I buy them all - it will be painfully "so last year". :) What's your experience? Are all metallic concoctions this dreamy? Or am I just desperate for excitement?
