Yes I own literally hundreds of polishes but this is just so beautiful that it hands down beats everything I own.
Tonic Polish – ‘Dragon Tears’
Made with a scattered holographic multitone pigment, the colour shifts through green, blue, purple, red & peach and even looks copper at some angles and also has a spattering of tiny silver holo micro glitter to finish off the look – not too many, just the perfect amount as to not dull the colour shift. The consistency is pretty thin so it flows on nicely and three coats result in a smooth, brushstroke free finish. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m pretty sure that it would look equally stunning over black or a dark colour to create a different look.
If you haven’t come across ‘Tonic’ before I highly recommend that you check them out they have such unusual shades you will fall in love. They haven’t been around all that long – I believe that they started trading last year but it is my belief that they are definitely ones to watch!
The ever changing weather in the U.K. lately has influenced what I have on my nails at the moment. It is thermal – Femme Fatale ‘Euna’ from the Enchanted Fables collection. I originally ordered ‘Eliza’ but unfortunately due to a problem with the pigment Sophie had to contact a number of customers to offer this new shade, as she could no longer get hold of the original colour.
‘Eliza’ was more of a raspberry pink to rich chocolate brown (see above) which I was so excited to get my hands on, but hey ho, it wasn’t to be.
I was sent ‘Euna’ as a replacement (I must add that I had received an email explaining the problem and had the option to get a refund or the new shade, I chose to have the new shade sent to me). ‘Euna’ is a soft petal pink with a copper glow that transitions into an olive green. As you see from the photo below, it can be absolutely gorgeous on a hot day, but I must admit I was a little disappointed with it when the tips were very cold as it made my nails look like they were dirty, I’m afraid, as much as I love Femme Fatale, this won’t be one of my go to polishes.
Another attempt at stamping, this time I wanted to try a subtle effect. This is Models Own ‘Copper Pot’ base with Claires accessories ‘Gold Chain’ pattern using MoYou plate Pro Collection no 11. Have a lovely weekend all!
