Color Club Magnetic Force: Electro-Midnight

Hey lovely readers! Today I have swatches of my first magnetic nail polish! I picked up Electro-Midnight from the Color Club Magnetic Force collection a few weeks ago as part of my Hometown Haul. I just couldn't resist a blue magnetic polish.

The Color Club magnet on this polish makes a wavy pattern. To apply Electro-Midnight, I did each finger individually, which is a must with magnetic polish. I put on one coat of polish, then held the magnet over it for the recommended 15 seconds. The Color Club magnet is a cover that goes over the top of the nail polish bottle. You separate it from the actual brush to make it easier to use. It also has a lip on one side to rest on your finger to help keep the magnet from touching the nail. 

After covering each nail with one coat of polish, I went back over each nail with a second coat and repeated the process. I managed to only hit my nail with the magnet 2 or 3 times, but only on the first coat.

I think this mani turned out pretty well for my first time using magnetic polish. I really love the color of Electro-Midnight, it's right up my alley and was completely opaque in two coats. The formula was definitely a dream to work with. Although I would have liked the magnet to be a little bit stronger, I'm still happy with how the pattern turned out. The only downside was that I had a little chip after less than 24 hours and I noticed some tip wear/shrinkage but that could have been due to topping it with Seche Vite. 

Do you own any from the Color Club Magnetic Force collection? What is your favorite magnetic polish?
