Swatch Sunday

For my birthday, my lovely mother got me the three metallic Bond polishes released by OPI. I used Bond…James Bond and Morning, Moneypenny in previous manis, but didn’t get very good pictures of either 😦 So I will be doing all three colors again!

We’ll start with Is That Silva?

JB - Silva 1


JB - Silva 2


JB - Silva 3


I really like the magnet that came with the polish. Most other magnetic polishes have their magnet in the cap, but this was completely separate. It has a ridge on the edge so that your nail doesn’t touch the magnet, and is very easy to squeeze with other fingers in order to achieve perfect distribution of the effect.

JB - Silva 7


The holographic sparkle in this polish is incredible, and the magnet was super strong! I seriously can’t find a bad thing to say about any of the three colors, but I think this one is my absolute favorite!


Claire’s Magnetix – Magnetic Nail Polish

I’m so sorry about the lack of posts recently. I’ve had a strange schedule the past two weeks, what with moving back to Boston and getting settled etc. I also didn’t bring any nail polish remover back with me…so I had to wear the same manicure for about a week and a half (oh man, that was hard). But I’m back now! First new post: the manicure I wore before I left.

I know magnetic nail polish is super old news by now, but I finally got my hands on a bottle from Claire’s! The first time I tried it, the magnet didn’t seem too strong…so I was a little sad. But the second time, it worked a bit better! I’ll still have to try again, just for fun (:




I think the magnetic effect actually showed up better in pictures than it did in real life!

I’ll definitely be trying this polish again, perhaps even sharing it with some of my ballroom buddies.

Anywho, I’m glad to be back and looking forward to posting more (:
