China Glaze Mahogany Magic

Friday, August 16, 2013

Good morning! I'm going to attempt to get all my textbooks today so wish me luck that I will be able to get everything at a good price. I was planning to get my student ID as well but those don't start until next week. I'm pretty busy next week too so I decided I'll just go again on the one free day I have to quickly get it along with my student bus pass. Can you believe I'm working 6 days for the next two weeks? Its crazy even though I wrote down that I wanted to work a maximum of 4 days on my availability. Let's see the polish I have today.

China Glaze Mahogany Magic is a brown creme with a hint of yellow/olive undertones to it. This is a pretty unique brown in my collection because the tone of color is almost dirty on my nails. I don't know if I like it or not. Formula and application was good though. I applied two coats below.

This is definitely one of those ugly colors that looks good. I'm not sure if it works with my skin tone though. Its a nice color in my collection regardless. What do you think of this color?

    Are you getting your textbooks online?? They're so much cheaper that way!! Crazy work :)

    1. Yeah, I'm not sure about it too. I'll probably just use it in my nail art designs. Nope, going to be buying them all in person. That online site you showed me doesn't carry the majority of the books I need anyways.

  3. It looks pretty great alone, but I imagine it would look better with some sort of design on it!

  4. ALthough I might not wear this alone, it would be great for nail art or layering!

  6. It totally does look chocolatey! I'm shy about browns, too, especially cremes, but this one does look nice on you :) Best of luck getting all your textbooks in one fell swoop! That'd be quite the accomplishment! ;)

    1. Thanks! Unfortunately, my textbook hunt today didn't go so well. I'm going next week again so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be more successful.

    1. Thanks Em! :) Yeah, one time I paid $180 for a textbook only to realize my instructor didn't really refer to it or use it much in our class. Such a bummer to loose out on so much money on it.
