I really need to sit down and swatch polishes but I just don’t wanna. I just want to do my nails in pretty ways. 😀
You all know I’ve been on this kick with magnetic polishes, and you’ve seen my previous attempts at magnetic + thermal nails (including magnetic thermal flame drag nail art, magnetic and thermal gradient nail art) so here’s another one! I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out.
Shleee Polish Area X, 3 coats plus top coat. Slightly sheer but this is a beyond gorgeous magnetic polish!
Polish ‘M Tip Tau-pe Through the Tulips, 3 coats
Jessica Cosmetics Starfish Glow, 3 coats plus top coat

I thought it was such a nifty idea and tried it with a clear to blue thermal and a different Shleee Polish (that mani will be coming soon) and it didn’t turn out. I really wanted this concept to work so I decided to experiment a little bit and found out a combo that worked in some flame drag marble nail art. I almost used Don Deeva Box Office Bitch – which I may use in a different thermal magnetic mani combo. Continue reading
