Nails Inc. - Spitalfields

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was having trouble with my brand new Nails Inc. Fishnet magnet. I thought maybe it just lost some of it's strength being in the store, so I decided to freeze it... because that is what the internet told me to do. :P

It did not help at all. I spent hours today trying to figure out what I was doing wrong, using more polish, putting the magnet closer to the nail, putting the magnet on faster. I tried the magnet with another polish... nothing worked, so I decided to look it up online to see if anybody else had problems with it or if I just had a faulty magnet. Turns out this polish/magnet has hundreds of terrible reviews. Ugh. I wish I read the reviews first!

The problem is that the magnet just isn't strong enough. In the areas where the nail bends further away from the magnet (the sides), you don't get a pattern at all. :(

So... this was $16 down the drain. The polish still works with other magnets, but I'm afraid the fishnet magnet is a bust. The green magnetic polish is very pretty, but I wouldn't have spent $16 on a small bottle of green magnetic polish, especially when China Glaze is coming out with a similar color. :(

The other polish (purple) I used is China Glaze - Drawn to You... which I apparently forgot to swatch. o__O
