Tonic Sophia

Tonic Sophia

So how did you make out on the latest Tonic restock? Since it was a pre-order, I did not have to hunger games it when the website opened. I only purchased three polishes: Happenstance, Bauble and Ambrosia. I will go back in March to buy the other three that I wanted because I have to stick to my budget. Did you buy anything? The polish I have for you today is one that is sadly no longer available. I managed to snag it in December when they were temporarily brought back for pre-order. Tonic Sophia (2017) is a much coveted polish from the Golden Girls Collection that was a Multichrome Madness exclusive. It’s soooo pretty, and I am so glad that I was able to snag it. Let me show you my swatches below. Continue reading “Tonic Sophia”

Tonic I Pink You Blue Me Off

Tonic I Pink You Blue Me Off

How’s your Wednesday going? It’s always nice when you realize you’re pretty much halfway through your work week but the weekend still seems like it’s sooo far away in the distance. Since the Tonic February restock is about to happen, I am trying to finish up all my Tonic untrieds posts. I think I may have 1 or 2 more polishes to show you, but I seriously can’t find them in my melmers. Have you seen the stuff that will be releasing? Holy mother of God, I want everything. I am going to have to implement some serious rules in order to stick to any kind of budget. You’ll know soon enough how it went because I’ll probably have a billion more Tonic posts coming up. Let me show you my swatches of Tonic I Pink You Blue Me Off below. Continue reading “Tonic I Pink You Blue Me Off”

Tonic Hush

Tonic Hush

Hey look! I’m back on my Tonic kick. I was looking through my pile of untrieds, and I was shocked at how many Tonics have joined my little polish family in the last few months. I really wasn’t buying that much polish in 2017, but I feel like I started purchasing more indies towards the end of the year. I was having a real crisis wondering if I really wanted to keep the blog going in 2018. I’ve been at this for 6 years now and sometimes I just feel so tired and like no one even reads blogs anymore. I am so disappointed by how bad Instagram is now so sometimes I just want to shut it all down. Continue reading “Tonic Hush”

Tonic Love Yourself First

Tonic Love Yourself First

Hey, so California is stupid. Why is it so hot here in January? I want to throw the whole state away in the garbage. If you didn’t already know this about me, I hate the heat. Like really hate it. I struggle through summer every year, so excuse me if I get outrageously upset when it gets close to 90 degrees in freaking January. I’m glad I got that out of my system so I can move on to the polish on hand: Tonic Love Yourself First. It’s such a simple name for such a glorious polish, but isn’t that one of the hardest things for many of us to do? Let me show you some swatches before I get all crazy in my head.

Tonic Innocence

Tonic Innocence

Hola, hola! I had kind of a busy weekend and didn’t have as much time to play around with polish. I’m trying really hard to get through my untrieds before I go nuts buying more. It really is difficult to restrict myself, but I’m making a huge effort. Did I already mention that I’ve put myself on a budget? It’s almost the end of the first month, and I think I could definitely do better. It’s interesting to see where the bulk of my spending is and now I can try to curb those habits. Today I have a beautiful polish to share with you. This beauty was a group exclusive for the Multichrome Madness group on Facebook so go ahead and join if you’re interested in multichrome polishes. Tonic Innocence is a beautiful polish to have in your collection, so let me show you some swatches. Continue reading “Tonic Innocence”

Tonic Berried Un-Teal Spring

Tonic Berried Un-Teal Spring

I have been enjoying posting swatches so much this last week, and I am glad to say that I pretty much exhausted a large part of my archives. I still have swatches of polishes on another computer, but I fear they might have been corrupted. I guess I’ll have to try and restore them if I can. Today I have the last of the SHIMMAHS group custom polishes in my stash to share with you: Tonic Berried Un-teal Spring. To be honest, I don’t think I have anything in my stash quite like this so I was very happy when I received it. Look at the pretty swatches! Continue reading “Tonic Berried Un-Teal Spring”

Tonic Serendipity

Tonic Serendipity

Aren’t you glad it’s Friday? Although this was a short work week for me, I felt like it dragged a bit. This weekend I was planning to do a bunch of swatching, but then I remembered that my nephew is getting baptized so we have Sunday blocked out for that. I can’t wait to see him all dressed up! I’ll put up some pictures on my instagram in case you want to check them out. Definitely get ready for cuteness overload. So as you may have noticed, I’m definitely a Tonic fan and I wanted to let you know that there will be a restock on Sunday 1/21 at 2:00 PM Central Time. For the love of God mark your calendars and set your alarms because no one wants to read about how you missed the restock because you were cleaning your bathroom, feeding your pet iguana or because you didn’t know what time the restock started in your time zone. And even more exciting, some of the UP polishes will be restocking for the last time. Yes, you read that correctly–THE LAST RESTOCK. Tonic Serendipity will be one of those polishes being restocked so I figured I might as well show you my swatches of this beauty. Continue reading “Tonic Serendipity”

Tonic Tracks In The Snow

Tonic Tracks In The Snow

Well, look at me posting 2 days in a row! To be honest, I have a lot (A LOT) of swatches done that I just never got around to posting because I was too damn lazy to write up a post. Since I want to start doing more stamping and fun nail art besides just straight swatching, I want to clear out my archives and start fresh. Today I have a gorgeous polish that I bought a few months ago: Tonic Tracks In The Snow which was a group custom for the Shimmahs group on Facebook. If you haven’t joined, click here to join and get access to gorgeous custom polishes from some of the best indie brands out there!
