More Magnetix Nail Designs


Here are some more magnetic nail art design ideas.  I did 2 in each of the colors I have.  My hubby is so cute.  He wants to go back tomorrow and buy me more :).  I wanted to try to use them in different ways instead of painting the whole nail.  Here is the you tube tutorial.

For this one, I used China Glaze Pull Me Close Magnetix polish.

1st one I used China Glaze - Laced Up for the pink.  I used pink pressed flowers (I know it looks red but it's not.  The 2nd one I used a bright blue liner and some crystals.  

This one is CG Drawn to You.  I used two different magnet shapes and added some crystals.

The 2nd one I used silver to line the french and added some dots and a crystal.

This one I use CG Cling on.  I actually used the first one in a previous post but added some dotting to the top and crystals.  The 2nd one I outlined the green with a gold sparkly liner and added crystals.  The base is CND Gold Chrome.

And that is it.  Let me know what you think.

Magnetic Mani


I went to my fav beauty supply shop for the first time in a very long time yesterday.  I ended up getting gelish soak off polish gel and a UV lamp because my nails just constantly break (as you can see with my little pointer nubbin).  I've tried and tried to keep it totally real, but this was the only way to keep my natural nail and hopefully create a strengthened barrier so that I can grow them long and keep them long.  We shall see.

I brought some magnetic polish (china glaze) and created a design.  Hopefully, you like it.  I'm also posting the concept nail that I did previous to trying it on my nails.  Here is the you tube tutorial.

Scroll Valentines Day


For this nail design, I used China Glaze snow and then a thin coat of Essie Bungle Jungle over it.  I think used black nail polish to paint on the scroll (using a brush) and used a dotting tool for the dots.

Red/Silver Valentine Nails

Hi all,

Here's two more ideas.  The first, I used the little silver balls to form hearts.  It was kind of hard.  I used China Glaze Cheers to You for the silver and Essie Bungle Jungle for the Red.  I also used CND Copper Shimmer on the Red under the silver stripe.  It was really hard with the silver balls.  I probably could have done that a little better. You'll have to experiment with it.

Purple Valentine


I wanted to do something in purple.  So, I first painted the nail white.  I put a very thin coat of purple (China Glaze Spontaneous) over top and purposefully streaked it.  I think painted hearts with OPI Ink.  On the center heart, I coated it with CND Violet Shimmer.  Then I used pink to dot in between the hearts.  I think it came out cute.  What do you think?  It's so hard to take good pictures.....

Countdown to Valentine's Day!

Hi everyone,

I'm going to try and do several different nails until Valentine's Day.  This is to give you some ideas.  My first go round I wanted something softer and a little girlie.  I used China Glaze Frosty as the base.  Then I partially covered the nail with Color Club pink.  And then I drew hearts with China Glaze Snow.  And finally I dotted with Zoya Sydney & CG Snow.  There are so many variations you can do with this design!  What do you think?

Valentine's Day

Here's another valentine's day nail art idea.  I decided to use silver as the background color (China Glaze Cheers to You).  The red hearts are Essie Bungle Jungle.

Hope you like it!
