Wheel P8: Warm Hues of Nabi Magnetics

The first time I posted a nail wheel full of magnetics (Wheel H8), I explained how I went a little crazy buying them when they came on the US market in large numbers a few years back. Today I have Exhibit 2 to support the charge of excessive magnetic indulgence: 20 polishes from Nabi in warm colors (the cool colors, and an overflow warm one or two, are on another wheel that I hope to share next week).

(all are two coats; due to the awkwardness of using the magnets on tips that are not on movable fingers, full magnetic effect was not consistently achieved)

1. Nabi Lavender [the names on these are often not what I would call that color, or not spelled correctly, or both, but I'm sure I wouldn't do any better if I were tasked with naming polishes in a language I barely know, which is what I suspect happened with these]
2. Nabi Mocha
3. Nabi Rose
4. Nabi Pinkle [love the name, don't love the brushstrokey-ness]
5. Nabi Pink [the speckled/flecked ones are my favorites]
6. Nabi Cinnamon
7. Nabi Blue Berry [the flecks in this are especially interesting, with both blue and copper]
8. Nabi Purple [not sure what's going on with the bubbling here; should try re-swatching this because I like the color]
9. Nabi Pink Rose
10. Nabi Red
11. Nabi Splash [see what I mean about the names? splash? splash of what? red wine?]
12. Nabi Black Berry
13. Nabi Tawny
14. Nabi Wine
15. Nabi Lilac
16. Nabi Natural
17. Nabi Cappucinno [love this with and without the effect of the magnet]
18. Nabi Dark Wine [nice speckles in this one, too]
19. Nabi Walnut
20. Nabi Dark Purple

Bottles 1 through 5:

6 through 10:

11 through 15:

16 through 20:

Destash notes: There is definitely room to shed some of these. 13, 15, and 19, I'm looking at you; I don't need all three of you. 9 and 10 and 12? Same deal. All the speckled ones get to stay, though.


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :)
