Tonic Peacock Parade – Swatches & Review

Hey guys! Is it nice and toasty in your neck of the woods? It’s October and it’s basically 100 degrees so I’m hating life. I just hope that for the sake of wildfires all over the state, that the weather cools down a lot. This weekend I pretty much stayed home to avoid the heat which is kind of hard considering I don’t have AC, but I did end up swatching a bunch of polishes that I purchased recently. One of those polishes is Tonic Peacock Parade. Oh, beautiful shifty polish how I love thee! Let me show you some swatches before I let you know the verdict.

Sweet baby Jesus on rollerskates! This polish is so shifty and gorgeous that I want to wear it every day in some capacity. This polish requires a few coats for full opacity–I applied 3 thin coats. I don’t mind having to apply 3 coats of polish, but considering that this is the only bottle I have, I get serious fear of running out. Will I run out? Probably not. There are very few bottles of polish that I have ever used up (OPI Vodka & Caviar, I’m looking at you!), so I should stop being a weirdo. I do wonder if I can apply one coat of black and one coat of Peacock Parade…I’ll have to give it a try. The formula on this polish was a little thin–hence needing 3 coats. I also felt that it was a little runny and I feared that I would flood my cuticles but I just made sure not to keep too much polish on my brush. It does show brushstrokes a little bit, but not enough to make me get annoyed. Removal was a breeze–no issues with staining whatsoever. I really, really love how beautiful this polish is! And here is a video of this polish in action:

This gorgeous polish is @tonicpolish Peacock Parade. Did you manage to snag a bottle?!?
