Wet-n-Wild "No Gas, Electrically Charged" Magnetic, with display photo!

I actually bought this one first and went back for the other one.
As you can see, I had a little trouble with the magnet. There's no finger guard, and it's a little awkward to get the finger placement just right.
This color is bangin' in real life. I realize it just looks sort of blackish-grey here.
But it was more like a blackened tealish color. Reminded me a little of the WnW Craze color "morbid" from a few years back.

The name is a little absurd, but cute.
$4.99 at Rite Aid which is the only place I have seen these so far.

Prepare for awesomeness!

I honestly don't think I have ever come across a polish this amazing before.

Yes, this is the same polish! It flashes from green to almost purple.

It's made by a company called Ebalay, who I had never heard of before, but WOW! I need all of these now!! This color is "Golden Green Iridescent".
 KKCenterHK suggests layering the iridescent polishes over black. I wanted to try it alone first because, well, I'm just stubborn like that! This was three coats. Drying time wasn't bad. Wear time was incredibly long. The brush is one of those nice, fluffy ones. Bottle is very similar to O.P.I.
 Look at that shine!

 No Flash.

KKCenterHK is offering a 10% discount with the code "willasshinytips".

This polish was sent to me for review.

Oldie and goodie - China Glaze BFF

I can't remember if I have ever worn this before.

 But, I was in the mood for something pink and holo.
 You can't really tell in these pictures, but I had a terrible time applying this. It was a little chunky and streaky.
But, it positively glows and looks amazing in the sunshine, so it's a win!

Wet-n-Wild Drawn together by Force *Magnetic!*

 How pretty is this bright emerald green?
 I did a better job with the magnet this time. The formula on these polishes is fantastic.
 I love the little square bottle. The brush is perfect.
 My ONLY complaint is the magnet. It sucks. It's awkward to use and there is no finger guard to make sure you don't touch it to your nails. Otherwise, I'd have to say this is one of the better magnetic polishes out there right now.
I found these at Rite Aid for $4.99

New Camera...and Nfu-Oh 51 over Kinky in Helsinki

I finally got a new camera. I think I'm going to keep this one. But I've been having trouble getting used to the settings. See above...
 Not bad.
 Getting better...
 This is O.P.I. Kinky in Helsinky with a layer of Nfu 51 flakies. Pretty!
And I just thought this was pretty too!

L.A. Girls Magnetic...now with Display photo

When I went back and actually brought my phone to remember to snap a picture, this was all that was left!

This was my 4th of July mani.

I wasn't super interested in trying these Kat VonD polishes. I thought they were kind of over-priced and resembled the Wet-n-Wild craze bottles a little too much.
But, I spotted this on clearance ($7) at Sephora and it really caught my eye.
 The blue is so amazing, it kind of sent my camera into spasms. It's a little more electric in person. It shifts blue-teal with a hint of purple and is absolutely STUNNING in person!

L.A. Girls Magnetic - Positive Charge

YUP! A red magnetic polish! How pretty is that!?
 $3.99 at Rite Aid too!

 This polish is so great! It applies so smooth and the magnetic particles work really well. It doesn't look chunky or weird like some of the cheaper magnetic polishes tend to look.
 That's supposed to be a star on my ring finger, I kinda messed it up a little.
A swirly magnet! How cool!?
