Magnetic french tip

It was another beautiful day in Chicago today.  Hopefully everyone is experiencing the same great weather.  I've been really into magnetic polish recently.  The tips were done with the V shaped magnet. 

I've been trying a tape mani with magnetic polish but I keep ripping the base color off with the tape.  If anyone has suggestions, please send them my way.  

I love the way these turned out! 

Polishes used
1. China glaze: ingrid          
2. China glaze: magnetix you move me

Now it's time to watch some Dance moms ;)


  1. This is such a neat idea! And I love the way it turned out! And when I do tape manis I usually wait a few hours for the base to dry completely or I do it on an older mani. Also I don't use scotch tape. I use that plain clear tape. The cheap one that you wouldn't even use for a gift because it doesn't stick properly. It's less sticky than scotch tape and but it holds well enough to give the same crisp lines.

    1. Thanks! I really appreciate the advice. I'll try a cheaper brand of tape.

  2. This is awesome! I just love brown and have Ingrid! FYI you may want to disable your word verification system. My poor old eyes can't see the letters and you may get more comments without it!

    1. Ingrid is one of my favorites too. It's such a good base for different designs. I had no idea about the word verification system. I turned it off. Thanks for letting me know.

  3. Your nail art looks so neat! You have lovely pictures! :-)
