Tonic Polish Rainbowfish

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.

My all time favourite Nail Polish

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!

Masura Mint Breeze review

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!

ILNP Shelfie

Following on from my previous post, I thought I’d do a shelfie of my ILNP collection.

ILNP is by far my favourite brand at the moment, I love everything about it – It is perfectly formulated and glides on a treat, it’s self levelling and the colours are to die for. As someone with a degree in packaging design, I LOVE the bottle & the black box. The thickness and shape of the bottle glass, the rubberised lid and the subtle black logo all work together to tick all of the boxes of both function & form.

I can generally wear these for a week or sometimes more without any sign of chipping, although, I rarely get chance to keep polish on that long.

The colours are as follows (in no particular order):

‘Ten Fold’, ‘Mega’, ‘Music Box’, ‘My Private Rainbow’, ‘Peri Me’, ‘Home Sweet Home’, ‘Daisy Jane’, ‘Top Down’, ‘Fall Semester’, ‘Jello Shot’, ‘I See You’, ‘Purple Plasma’, ‘Bikini Bottoms’, ‘Interstellar’, ‘Shoreline’, ‘Champagne Blush’, ‘Kings & Queens’, ‘Lilac Bridges’, ‘Poetry’ & ‘Clockwork’

If you are tired of mainstream polish brands and want to try something a bit different, then I urge you to invest in these beauties.

ILNP Ten Fold

The colour Ten Fold from the 2015 Summer Ultra Holos collection is pretty difficult to describe, I guess I’d say it is a mix between a mint and a light teal that you could liken to a mermaids scales. The ultra holo formula is full to the brim with intense holographic sparkle and the formula is perfect as it glides on effortlessly and is fully opaque in three fast drying coats. I found the colour to be very similar to CBL ‘Enjoy Mint’ which I bought at the same time but was unfortunately advertised as a totally different shade (Being a designer by trade I am pretty obsessed when it comes to colour).

I love my teal nails polishes and I love anything glittery so this is the absolute best of both worlds! I highly recommend it.

Available from Hypnotic Polish, Rainbow Connection or directly from their Etsy shop here.

Picture Polish bright striped Nails

Over the weekend, I was very lucky to meet up with an old friend who was visiting from Australia, I know that she has so many people to see while here, so it meant a lot that I got to catch up with her and her other half plus – she very kindly agreed to bring over with her a small order I placed with piCture pOlish meaning they were a lot cheaper than buying them in this country – how amazing is that! She also bought me some glitters over, but that’s for another day!

I got five polishes and ‘Peel Off Glitter Base’, I have used four of the lovely polishes here in this mani.

Now all of the polish consistencies are on the thicker side (but completely manageable), and cover in two coats. The stripes are hand painted using a very fine brush.

The colours used are:

Lilac – Eerie

Sky Blue – Salt Water

Green – Honey Moon

Raspberry – Shocked

Then topped off by my fave top coat Seche Vite.
