Barry M Magnetic range

As a bit fan of the Barry M nail polish range, i was excited to try their Magnetic polish. So i went off to superdrug again and decided to buy the blue polish. The instructions on the bottle said to paint your nails and let the first coat dry and the photo below is a photo of how it looked:

The next instruction was to do another coat and immediately use the magnet on the nail. It is best to do each nail individually. I tried this polish several times and wasnt overly pleased with the results. As you can see from the photo above, my nails were not very long and i think thats why i wasnt getting the whole design on my nail. The photo below is a photo of how it turned out:

Im having problems again with my nails peeling, so when they have finally grown a bit, i want to try this nail polish again to see if i can get it to work properly and then i'll update this post.

Is anyone else having similiar problems with this nail polish or is it just me?

The next step is to make up 11 questions that i want other bloggers to answer,
and finally i have to tag 11 bloggers and let them know i have tagged them.

11 interesting things about me:
1. I have become obsessed with nail art. For this obsession, i balme my friend Claire, who first got me into nail art.
2. It wasnt my idea to set up a blog. It was Claires suggestion that i set it up to talk about the nail art i do, though i do blog about other things as well.
3. I have a secret obsession, that most of my friends dont know about. I have been collecting keyrings since i was young and currently have over 250 keyrings.
4. I am a book worm lol. I love to read books and will often sit up really late at night to avoid putting down my book.
5. I have my bacheors and masters degrees and still dont know what i want to do with my life!
6. I like a wide variety of tv programmes, such as: Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis, CSI: Las Vegas/ Miami/ New York, Law and Order: original, UK and SVU, Criminal Minds, Sons of Anarchy, Smallville, Charmed, Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, 2 Broke girls... the list goes on lol.
7. I have never broken a bone, though i have chipped my elbow.
8. I love Horror films.
9. Ive not yet blogged about clothes or fashion. Im trying to lose weight at the moment, so maybe when i have lost some weight, i might do a couple of blog posts and fashion and clothes.
10. I love the jewellery from New look, Topshop, and some pieces from Claire's Accessories and some from Primark.
11. I believe in 'what goes around, comes around'.
Sinead's 11 questions:
1. London or New York?
New York. I would love to travel round America one day, and New York would be one of my top places that I want to visit.
2. What really annoys you?
When you text someone and ask them them a question and they reply to the rest of the text but not the important question! oh, and some of the ignorant customers i have to serve in my work place (spar) lol.
3. What is your favourite colour?
I have two favourite colours - purple and green.
4. Have you any secret talents?
I think they are still secret 'cos i dont know about them yet. lol.

At GCSE level, my favourite subjects were Spanish, History and Business Studies.
At A-level, my favourite subject was Biology.

6. What item of clothing do you love wearing?
The item i love to wear most, is not very fashionable lol. I love cold wet days, where i know i dont have to go outside, and i can sit in my room, by the window, with my favourite green hoodie on, and read a book or watch a dvd.
7. What does fashion mean to you?
At the moment, not much. I want to follow fashion more, but im waiting until i have lost more weight.

I am from a small town in N.Ireland, and the fashion / sense of style is widely varied!
