Good Morning!! Happy weekend, anyone have fun plans? It's supposed to rain here so that means getting cozy and watching movies! Today I have 4 magnetic polishes to show you guys!! I LOVE magnetic polish and they are quickly becoming easier to find and more affordable! I picked up the 4 I'm showing you today at Icing, for those that have never heard of Icing they sell cheap accessories along with some make up and great polishes! These are brand spanking new and I pretty much stalked the store closest to me waiting for them to get their shipment in lol!
These are pretty much full of win and easily my favorite magnetic polishes that have come out so far!

Before I start I should mention that none of these have official names...wth Icing. I hate that! I used 2 coats for each polish and held the magnet over the nail for 10-15 seconds while the second coat of polish was wet to create the design for each!
First up is the blue/purple magnetic. THIS IS SO AWESOME!!! yes people I felt like I needed to yell that, if I wasn't scared about my neighbors calling the cops I'd probably stand on my roof and yell about how awesome this one is. If you like magnetic polish you need this, heck even if you don't like it...you still need this. Also, how awesome is the wavy magnet?!?
The next one is is a green/gold magnetic with glitter! This one is pretty amazing also, if not for that fab blue one it would be my favorite! I've seen magnetic polish with glitter but nothing near as awesome as this. The golden glitter comes out after you put the magnet over the nail and is SO gorgeous. Prior to using the magnet you can't really see that glitter, I was all :O after I was done with the first nail!
Next up is a grey/black with glitter. I do feel like I have seen this one before, it looks like Layla Silver Galaxy...except it's better in my opinion. It's also a lot cheaper and the magnet is a billion times easier to use! Since I already have one like this overall it's not my favorite but it's still great!
Last up is the pink/dark pinkish red with glitter. In the bottle this one was my favorite, on the nail I don't love it quite as much but it's still a winner! The glitter in this one was also hiding it's awesomness until you held the magnet over your nail! This one is unlike any of the other magnetic polishes I have!
Alright, now lets talk about the magnets and why I think they rule.
1. They have that awesome lip like the Nails Inc. magnetic polishes have. It makes it easy to hold the magnet the correct distance from the nail without hitting it on the wet polish.
2. The magnet is nice and strong and the designs come out awesome!
3. The magnet is more versatile than the others I have. It has 2 of those little lips, so you can easily switch the design the other direction.
4. There are 2 patterns to choose from, the straight lines and the awesome wavy pattern. If you buy these make sure you check the caps of your bottles to make sure you get one of each (or whichever you like the best) I put a picture of what each of the caps looks like below (I added the word that says Wavy/Straight!)
Now here is my one complaint, these brushes are seriously wonky. 2 of mine were okay but the other 2 were like the photo below. It was like trying to polish my nails with a mop. Make sure you check your brushes before you buy!
The Icing Magnetix polishes are available only at Icing stores. They do not sell online unless you happen to find them somewhere like eBay. They were $9 each for a .33oz bottle, however Icing polishes are as far as I know always buy 1 get 1 half off which makes it a pretty great deal!
