Yay, more magnetics! Even though they are everywhere, I'm not tired of magnetic polishes yet. I was at Sally's the other night, and I picked up a couple of the new Finger Paints magnetics. I'll mention right off the bat that these appear to be completely identical to the Color Club Magnetic Force polishes. The bottles, the magnets, even the names are the same. So if you have those, you really don't need these because I am certain they are the same exact polishes, just with different brand names on the bottles.
So with that out of the way, here's what we have. Hipnotic is an absolutely lovely berry shade. The formula and brush are both fab, no complaints whatsoever.
One of the things I like the most about these is the magnet. Each polish comes with one (though they do all appear to be the same wavy pattern), and I especially like that the magnet is housed in an overcap that comes off. This makes it super easy to use, rather than fighting a magnet that's actually at the end of the brush like the Layla magnetics.
Likewise, I really like that the magnet has the little step to help with positioning. I had a really easy time both centering the magnet over my nail AND making sure I didn't touch the magnet to my wet polish. Awesomely awkward one hand pose showing the magnet over my nail:
I held the magnet over each nail for about 20 seconds. I think the pattern was forming faster than that, but I wanted to give it plenty of time. It worked great, no complaints at all.
If you're not over the magnetics thing yet, now is a good time to pick these up at Sally's, since all polishes are B2G1 for the entire month of April. =)
