Essence Magic Wand!

I hope everyone enjoyed their Saturday and are currently enjoying their Saturday night! Today I have a little bit of a nail fail to show you. Magnetic polishes have a little bit of a learning curve. How close to hold the magnet without touching your nail. How long to hold it there, etc. I was successful when I swatched this polish, but not so successful doing it on my own nails.

Essence Magic Wand! is a pretty polish with a slight purple tint (that does not translate here) and a bit of a frost-like finish. In person the magnetic effect was more visible. I need to practice more. But I did want to post this because I know I'm not the only one who didn't get the hang of magnetic polish the first try. I'm going to try again soon and hopefully be successful.


  1. Lovely golden colour! I would wear this without using magnets, it is so pretty!

    1. It is really pretty even without the magnet. After my fail, I decided to keep the color and layer some glitter on, that you'll see in my next post. :)

  2. Very pretty! I love the subtlety of the lines.
