Monday, May 08, 2017 Ashley K 0 Comments


Hey y'all! I'm a day late with this one, but today I've got a ton of swatches from Tonic Polish restock that happened yesterday. So while I might be a day late I do have some good news! At the time of writing this everything is still in stock! So without further adieu let's get on with the swatches for the 2017 Spring Collection, May Babies Duo, and the Tonic half of the Femme Fatale Duo.

First up is the 2017 Spring Collection!

Aurora Sunrise is an orchid leaning pink jelly with a strong turquoise to purple shifting shimmer and ultra holo microglitters. Such a gorgeous, sparkly pink! Tonic Polishes are all on the thicker side (I'm not repeating that for every one), but I don't find this effects my application at all. This was silky smooth application and is opaque in three coats. If you don't mind a teeny tiny bit of visible nail line two coats will suffice for this one. Shown below is three coats finished off with a glossy top coat of Tonic Topper.

Deep Sea-crets is a a bright turquoise cream with a peachy-pink to yellow shifting shimmer. This one reminds me of the crystal clear waters you'd find down in the Caribbean. Silky smooth application and opaque in two coats. This one is a bit of a fast drying one and it dries to a satiny finish. Shown below is three coats finished off with a glossy top coat of Tonic Topper.

Endless Shrimp is a soft coral cream with a pale green shimmer. This shimmer was so freaking hard to capture on camera. This one is just like Deep Sea-crets with being a quick drier and having a satin finish. Easy application and opaque in two coats. Shown below is three coats finished off with a glossy top coat of Tonic Topper.

Foxfire is a metallic rose gold to yellow gold multichrome with a scattered holographic finish. This is such a gorgeous polish. Soft, yet metallic and full of sparkle. Silky smooth application and easily opaque in two coats. Shown below is three coats finished off with a glossy top coat of Tonic Topper.

Titanium Orchid is a member of the "lumichrome" family, which includes colors like Incandescent, Luminescent, and Greenglow. It's a pale metallic multichrome that shifts from cool lavender to peach to gold with a scattered holographic finish. This has an interestingly delicate, soft feel to it for being a metallic. Silky smooth application and opaque in two coats. Shown below is three coats finished off with a glossy top coat of Tonic Topper.

Okay so that's it for the Spring Collection, let's do the May Babies Duo next! This is in honor of Lindsey's son Nico who turns four in May! His favorite color is green, the May birthstone is the Emerald, and one of their favorite books to read together is "Oh, the Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss. This is a limited edition for this release, but they will be making a comeback in the future!

The Places You'll Go is an emerald green base with green to blue to purple to pink to gold shifting multichrome shimmer. This is sheer on the first coat but builds very quickly! This would be opaque enough for some people at two coats, but I preferred three. Excellent application and like I said builds easily to opacity. This is similar to Dragons at Dusk but it's different, I plan on doing a comparison post soon. I'll update this with the link when I do. Shown below is three coats finished off with a glossy top coat of Tonic Topper.

You'll Move Mountains is a beautiful glowing green. That's it. Just a gorgeous, perfectly glowing, emerald green. Easy application and fully opaque in two coats. Shown below is three coats finished off with a glossy top coat of Tonic Topper.

Last, but not least, we have the Tonic half of the Four Seasons Collaboration. This quartet was inspired by Vivaldi's violin concertos and Lindsey and Sophie each chose seasons to model their colors after. 

Bleeding Heart Sunset was inspired by the intense, sultry heat of the Summer concerto. It's an orchid-lavender base with a strong, glowing pink multichrome shimmer that shifts from peach to gold with a scattered holo finish.

Promise of Spring was inspired by the fresh, lighthearted playfulness of the Spring concerto. It's a pale metallic yellow-green lumichrome that shifts to mint green and blue with a scattered holo finish. Soft, delicate and easily application that's opaque in two coats. Shown below is three coats finished off with a glossy top coat of Tonic Topper.

Whew! Okay, so that was a ton of gorgeous swatches! These are all beautiful polishes that I'd say would be happy and at home in anyone's collection. Like I said in the beginning of this post, this restock went live yesterday, but everything is still available at the time of posting this. Also, while you're there I'd highly recommend grabbing some Tonic Topper because to be completely honest it's one of my favorites. The "Four Seasons" Collaborations can be found at either the Tonic Website or the Femme Fatale Australian Website.
