Swatch: China Glaze Magnetix in Instant Chemistry

So I'm a tad late jumping on the magnetic polish wagon.  But my awesome friend got me this China Glaze polish and its like getting a new toy! I have used magnetic polish before, years and years ago when Lancome released one.  So I know it takes a bit of practice to get it right. I went with the chevron pattern first (the China Glaze magnet has a chevron, starburst, and stripe pattern)

I did one fairly thick coat of polish, then used the magnet.  As each nail went I got a bit better.  The trick is to hold the magnet as close to the polish as possible and to not move it for at least 15 seconds. I love how this polish is a one coater with fast dry time.  This will be added to my list of quick dry polishes for last minute manis, and its super fun to boot! Now that I have played with this, I want more colors! lol better late than never?

Left hand, you can tell I started with my pinky and got better as I moved toward my thumb lol

By time I got to my last nail, look! Perfect chevron!
