Color Club Hipnotic

Look what arrived in the mail today.....

Color Club Hipnotic. This is my first Magnetic polish and I couldn't wait to try it out.

Sorry about the crappy condition of my nails. For some reason they are just not growing at all. I'm waiting for some new nail hardener to arrive in the mail.

Color Club Hipnotic - Natural Light

This is a beautiful colour. A deep burgundy shimmer colour. It is lighter on the nail before you use the magnet on it.

This was a lot easier than I had imagined it to be, although it is slightly time consuming. You apply the first coat of polish as normal. Then one nail at a time, you apply the second coat of polish, (I used a thick second coat) and then hold the magnet over your nail for 5-15 seconds (I just counted to 15) Unfortunately because of the magnet being held over the nail you can not see the pattern forming, which would have been cool.

The Color Club magnets are attached to the top of the bottle (they remove off the handle of the polish for easy use) and have a little ridge which you can use as a height guide for how far away you hold the magnet from your actual nail.

Color Club Magnetic Force Magnet

I do have a few issues with these. All six Color Club polishes come with the same magnet pattern. This means to get the other shapes (diagonal lines or star) you will need to purchase a magnet from another brand. Secondly because I have little short nails, you do not actually get much of the wavey pattern showing up on the nail.

Overall these polishes are more fun than I thought they would be. They are very easy to use and a great way to add something extra to a regular mani.

Lots of Love

This polish was sent to me for review
