Claire's Magnetix - Blue/Purple Magnetic Nail Polish

Hi Guys! I have another Claire's Magnetic polish to show you today. I got this polish along with the Gold/Olive Magnetic a couple weeks ago and I have actually worn this polish quite a few times since then. This polish has the same wonky brush as the other one but I still love it. The magnet on this one is much like my Nails Inc. Trafalgar Square wavy magnet.
The Claires's magnet polishes retail for $8.50 but they are usually BOGO 1/2 off. I am currently working on another dotting tool mani. If all goes well I will get that up tomorrow.

Everbella Dotting Tools Review

Today I have something cool to show you. I received some dotting tools from Everbella to review on my blog and I was so excited to use them. I have seen many other people online with the most fantastic dotted manis and I really wanted to try them out. Of course I had to have the boyfriend help me out when it came to the colors. This is what we ended up with!
Now the base color I chose is my own franken I made just for this manicure. I only seem to have light grays and I wanted a darker gray so that is what I made. I used a quite a few colors for my dots and they are:
Sally Hansen - Wet Cement
Sinful Colors - Cinderella
Sinful Colors- Paradise
Pure Ice - French Kiss
CND - Midnight Sapphire
Wet n Wild - Black Creme

The dotting tools were super simple to use. The shipping from Everbella was super quick as well. I have heard a lot of people ordering their dotting tools from Ebay and they take like 1-2 months to even get them. The dotting tools retail for $3.89 on Everbella. Exclusive to my readers is a 10% off coupon.
I will also post this coupon to my sidebar as well.  You can visit the Everbella site here as well as their Facebook page.

Claire's Magnetix - Olive/Gold Magnetic Nail Polish

I tried my other Claire's magnetic polish out last night and wanted to show you guys the results. First off I have to say that I really like both of the magnetic polishes I got from Claire's. I have already wore the blue/purple one and I loved it although I could not get an accurate color photo of it so I have not got around to posting that one. This polish was also hard to get a color accurate photo of but I finally managed..kinda. This polish tends to be a tad more greener in person.
Let's talk about the polish itself for a moment. The polish went on pretty thin on the first coat but the second coat made it all better. Also, both of the magnetic polishes I got from Claire's have the most wonky brushes on them. At first I was like how am I going to polish my nails with these things? To my surprise again they actually made it easier to apply the polish so I can't complain about them anymore. The top cap does pop off of these polishes much like the Nails Inc. Trafalgar Square I have. The magnet is also pretty much the same except for the fact it has two spots where you can rest your nail bed while your using the magnet on your nail.
This particular magnet has sideways lines on it. The other magnetic polish I got from Claire's has the same design as the Nails Inc. magnetic polishes although it is not as strong. This magnet was very strong and even got the sides of my curvy nails. My Nails Inc. magnetic doesn't even do that! I will give you a tip to try when you are in the store to see if your magnet is strong because I saw polishes in Claire's that were even missing the magnets. All you have to do is hold the top of one magnetic against the bottle of another and make sure you can see the transition very well. I don't know if this hurts the polish but I have done it with all of mine and it doesn't seem to be a problem. If you are on the lookout for these they are $8.50 each but you can get them BOGO 1/2 off. I want the pink one now!

Sinful Colors - Cinderella

Here is a polish that I showed to you yesterday in my "Offline" Haul. This is Sinful Colors Cinderella. This is a beautiful blue polish that has beautiful glass flecks throughout it. The glass flecks have the same color change as Essie Shine of The Times. 
I have to say I love this polish but Sinful Colors formula still irks me. It never seems to dry as fast as I would like it to. I will however give this beauty a second chance. FYI: I found this polish in with all of the other Sinful Colors core polishes if you are looking for it!

My "Offline" Haul!

So I have been MIA for quite some time but that does not mean that I have stopped collecting polish along the way. I have gotten quite a few awesome polishes over the past few weeks and wanted to show them to you.
Zoya Veruschka, Loredana, Savita, and Sooki
I got some of the Zoya Mattes which I am none to impressed with. They are super thin and dry slow! I am wondering if I got dud ones or something.
Claire's Gold/Olive and Blue/Purple Magnetic Polishes, Sinful Colors Cinderella, Wet n Wild  On a Trip
These polishes I picked up over the last several weeks. I was excited to get my hands on Cinderella although it is in the core display of my Walgreen's selection now. That meaning I have extra and will probably put them on the blog sale within the next coming days. I was also excited to see the new Wet n Wild Megalast polishes and this one stood out to me.
China Glaze FYI, 100 Proof Pink, No Way José
I got these awesome polishes off of ebay. I had been scouring some of these polishes for awhile and then a seller put all these on sale along with others and I just couldn't resist myself. Well I hope you guys enjoyed my "offline" haul. I have no idea what to swatch first!?

China Glaze - Let's Do It In 3D

I'm Baaaack!!! So I finally got my computer issues resolved. I had so many photos on my old computer that I tried to back up but I don't think it's going to happen. Oh well, I guess that means more swatching for me! This polish I have to show you today is China Glaze Let's Do It In 3D. This polish exists no longer on store shelves but I was able to pick up a bottle from a girl in a Facebook polish group I am in. I was quite excited to have another holo to add to my collection but I must admit I was worried when I received it because it does not look very holo in the bottle at all. My worry was turn to glee when I put it on the nail. After it was dry it was very holo!

I have also got some pretty cool polishes since I have been offline so I think a haul post is in order. I will have that for you guys tomorrow. Until then have a great weekend!

Giveaway Winners!

I am happy to announce the two winners of my first giveaway! I will be emailing them shortly.

Ali Golightly
Congratulations girls! 

A side note: I am having computer problems hence the lack of posts. My screen went out on my computer which is just lovely as I have online classes. I hope to get this problem fixed by next week if possible. I have many backlogged posts with photos I can't crop or edit. It is frustrating to say the least. I hope to be back soon!
