Hello, I am back again with more from my current favourite brand – Tonic Polish. Now this time they have outdone themselves once again and I love this even more than ‘Dragon Tears’ and that’s saying something! Unfortunately this colour ‘Peacock Parade’ isn’t available in the U.K. I had to purchase it through a group buy so I only had one chance to snag it and I’m so glad that I did.
It is a beautiful multi chrome which shifts from dark purple through navy, teal, aqua and green but when you are in the shade it also appears rusty and bronze! It took three coats to cover fully and considering that this stuff is like gold dust I was hesitant – but it was so worth it.
It did chip slightly after a couple of days, but that wouldn’t put me off using it again and again. I’m in love!
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!
I was so excited to get my hands on Colour Alikes ‘Lagoon’ from the Universe Collection. I have a number of other multi chromes but seeing photos of this I was convinced this was better than the brands I already have and I was not wrong. I don’t know if it’s because it is a stamping polish but the consistency seems so much more pigmented and it is just stunning. I liked it both with and without top coat.
For this mani I I decided to use this polish as the base and stamped with MoYou Londons ‘Black Knight’. I love how it turned out. Have you tried this polish?
