My first swap package! Essence Magnetic - Magic Wand

Hi!

As you guys may have read on my Facebook Fan page, I am indeed sick. I called it! I went to the doctor this morning, and I have strep throat. :(

BUT! When I was trying to take a nap, I got a present in the mail.... My first ever swap package! I am in the process of a swap with my friend Kati from the Netherlands, and I got my first package today!

Isadora "Blue Burner" (crackle!!), Catrice "Sold Out Forever", Essence Magnetic "Pixie Dust" and "Magic Wand", Essence "Where is the party?", BeYu #327, and some tasty chocolate!

So fun!! So far, I have tried the chocolate in the pink box in the back... It's got yogurt-ish cream with chunks of dried strawberry inside... TO DIE FOR! It is SO good and rich! I also tried the blue one there.. not sure in it, but it's so creamy!

First, I played with my Essence Magnetic polish, of course!!  I decided to use Magic Wand. :D



For those of you who aren't familiar with magnetic polish, you paint the polish on, and then hold a little magnet over it for about 20 seconds, and it makes stripes in the polish! It takes some practice, but it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it. I noticed that you can't paint the polish on too thick, because then the magnet doesn't work as well (see pinky). Very cool! :D This is ONE coat.

Thanks, Kati! Here's hoping your package gets to  you soon! <3

  1. AWESOME! Okay Kati I NEED some Isadora lol, and what is that last one that I haven't heard of? Super cool! What candies can you not get there, cause that would be fun too! :D I got you a few more today at Amber's suggestion.

    Super freaking cool magnetic thing. I'm dying to find the colored ones that you insist exist. Glad you got your package!

  2. I haven't seen any other magnetics than the Essence ones, btw Megan this same one is in your package too. But hmm, you don't have the Essence magnet yet so I hope some other magnet works. But I really wonder if there are other brands with magnetic colours, I have heard rumours but I haven't seen.

    Megan I bought those some chocolates for you but...hmm.... I ate them! And that package is from Germany so I couldn't buy it again right away since we haven't been back yet. But I have something else for you :D

  5. That's super cool! I've never heard of magnetic polish before. But will it make my hand stick to the fridge? Because that would be bad news. Lol.

  6. I also blogged about the Essence Magnetic polish yesterday as I just found it in a shop! I found it difficult because I kept hitting my finger against the magnet because you have to get so close in order for it to work properly. It IS fun though :)
