In the past few months I have become aware of an indie brand called ‘Tonic Polish’ who have a range that definitely makes a statement! There are only a few colours available in the U.K at present but they are well worth trying – they come in a 5 free formulation in a 15ml bottle in an array of never seen before colours.
Today I am focussing on ‘Rainbowfish’ – it is an aqua holo jelly, filled with silver & turquoise holographic micro glitters and dotted with a pinky purple fleck that seems to shift effortlessly to spectacularly vivid hues of both green and gold.
The formulation is so easy to apply and it covers fully in three coats to a smooth finish but is enhanced even further with top coat. I will have more from this brand in the future, so keep your eyes peeled.

Unfortunately I’ve had to cut my natural nails right down so I am concentrating on press on nails for a while. Here is my latest.
Nails Inc ‘Black Taxi’ Coated with one layer of the following: ILNP ‘Homecoming’ ‘Sitting Fireside’ ‘Mon Amore’ ‘Fall Semester’ ‘Purple Plasma’
Today I have on Masura ‘Mint Breeze‘ from The Golden Collection. This Russian polish is a truly magical scattered holographic jelly in a stunning mint green shade. I saw another blogger describe this as having the appearance of powdered precious stones and I couldn’t agree more. It covers in three layers and jelly nature allows the sparkles to shine through each layer, creating maximum ‘in your face’ sparkle!
Introducing Esmaltes da Kelly ‘Medusa’ from the ‘Ultra Holo Collection’. As you know I am sucker for sparkle so when I saw this collection I had to buy more than one! These polishes are actually for stamping but they work just as well as a nail polish and they cover in just one coat (although I have used two here). ‘Medusa’ is a gorgeous violet holo purple and on two of the nails I have used glitter from ‘Born Pretty’ and stamped over the top in the same colour – unfortunately it doesn’t show up well in this photo.
Most of this range are currently sold through Nail-Artisan and can be purchased here.
It’s been a while since I’ve had on my nails a real textured polish packed with holo and sparkle – Well today I have for you – Emily de Molly ‘Tread Lightly‘ a beautiful sea blue/green full of varying sized silver & purple glitter dots & pink & purple smaller hex glitters. I love the way the glitters appear differently after each layer – I used three thin coats here and the crelly formula really helps it come to life.
It required a good couple of coats of top coat to even out the surface but was a fun polish to wear although I must say, although I love it in the bottle, it didn’t really suit me when I had it on.
