KBShimmer Thrust Issues, 3 coats plus top coat. Formula was a little thick but still workable. I used this tutorial for using the magnet, it worked better on some nails than others. I think I just need to practice the technique.
China Glaze Mega Bite, 3 coats plus top coat. Sheer and thin but pretty!
Crystal Parade Crystal/Pearl Steampunk Mix
I’m obsessing over my magnetic polishes I bought from KBShimmer so I paired it with an old China Glaze that I picked up awhile back from a local beauty supply store. Then I wanted to fancy it up a bit, so dug through my stash for this mix from Crystal Parade. I think it works quite nicely! Click through for more pictures.

Tonic Polish Zeppo, 2 coats plus top coat
This is a magnetic polish that is simply amazing. I can’t get over how much I love this. If I can find and buy all the polishes like this, I’ll be happy. I kept taking pictures of it in different light because it just kept looking so different. P.S. I’ve worn this as a pedicure as well and yeah, I stared at my toes.
OPI My Voice is a Little Norse, 3 coats and no top coat
OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender, 3 coats
OPI Vant To Bite My Neck, 2 coats
I’m back with more purple polish to show you for OPI Mad Love Color of the Month! I had fun with this but what’s silly is that when I went to paint on my lines, I couldn’t get them straight. *face palm* I just rolled with it and made them all diagonal. 😀 So now it looks like I did it on purpose. 😛
