Hey There Polished People!!
Well I sure hope everyone had a nice Christmas with their families! Mine was great. I got so many presents, including but not limited to, an entire wardrobe of clothes plus a super cute Columbia jacket, the summer 2012 Cheeky nail stamping plates, some money, three drawer cubes from Michael’s (aka: Melmers), lots of other polish, a super cute whale print wristlet… the list goes on and on. I also got a few books and a gift card for more books. :) I have to come clean here… I think reading is my first love. Even above polish!! I know, I know.. blasphemy!! ;) If I felt like I could write about books in such a way that anyone would continue to read my blog, I would totally have a book blog. I LOVE reading! I also read super fast; I feel like I inhale books instead of read them. I just open the cover, take a deep breath and POOF it’s 3am and I’ve read an entire book. I love reading so much, in fact, that for my Children’s Lit class during my Master’s program (yes, you may refer to me as Master Nicole from now on) we had to read some crazy number like 50 children’s books and we turned in these reports on each as we read them. Well, I turned in a ton of reports all at once cuz I’d read a ton of books over a long weekend or something and guess what? MY TEACHER ACCUSED ME OF CHEATING!!! She thought I didn’t read them and just read summaries online or something. It was kinda funny, but I was seriously appalled that she would have the nerve to accuse me. I’m a good student, I’m an honest person and although she didn’t know me very well she should have looked at my record and given me the benefit of the doubt. She asked me to stay after class and I thought she just wanted to ask me about my books and then she accused me of cheating.. what a shock!! I was like, “Psshhh you don’t know me! Don’t be accusing ME of cheating.” I didn’t say that, but I thought it, HARD. I have a list about a mile long of books I want to read so I plan on spending that book money ASAP. Maybe even by the time you read this. You’ll have to check in with me. ;) Anyway, long story short, my Christmas was great. We spent some nice time with my husband’s family, nice time with mine and it was just perfect. :)
Today I have a polish I got from BigDaddyBeauty.com to share with you. It is the ChG Magnetix polish, Pull Me Close. It’s a dark grey/teal color that gets dark when the magnet is applied to it. The ChG Magnetix polishes work with the ChG magnet and it has three designs. An asterix-style shape, a chevron, and diagonal lines. Today I’ll share the asterix-y design with you. Stay tuned for the others.

I’m not a big fan of these in particular, but I LOVE this Magnetix polish!! It goes on so smooth and opaque, the magnet works well and there are several designs and it just turns out so cool. If you would like to buy some Pull Me Close for yourself, you may be able to find it around, but you can definitely find it at BigDaddyBeauty.com. Speaking of… they are having a huge $500 shopping spree sweepstakes. You can enter here. I am definitely entering so here’s hoping you or I win ;) They’re actually giving away a $500, a $250 and a $100 prize so maybe we can both win. :) Thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!!! :D
