Tonic Curio

The weather here in SoCal is incredibly gloomy and humid today–a putrid combination. The last week has been super hot so I am hoping that we get a little break this week. It’s kind of hard to do your nails when it’s hot and humid because polish acts funky, but I did manage to do a few swatches this weekend. On Sunday, I spent my whole day glued to the couch watching season 3 of Narcos on Netflix. Have you seen it yet? I really hope there is a season 4!!!!! I definitely think that the show was much more interesting when they were focusing on Pablo Escobar, but the new angle and the story of the Cali Cartel is engrossing as well. Anyway, today I want to show you my very first Tonic purchase. Yes, you read that correctly: my first Tonic purchase. The polish I have for you today is Tonic Curio from the coveted Unicorn Pee Collection. Let me show you some swatches first.

Tonic Curio is a blue toned purple with the gorgeous unicorn pee pigment that flashes from red to green depending on the lighting and angle. This polish is very sheer since it is a jelly so expect to apply up to 4 coats if you plan to wear it alone. You could also apply a purple base color and apply 1-2 coats of Curio on top of it if you don’t want to wear it on its own. Personally, I loved wearing this on its own even if I did have to apply multiple coats. Currently, the Unicorn Pee Collection is sold out on the Tonic Website and I have no idea if the polishes will be restocked. Womp womp.

Did you manage to get any of the Tonic Unicorn Pee polishes before they sold out? I really wanted to get Serendipity but it was sold out by the time I remembered the restock. You’ve really got to be quick as a ninja to get some of these LE polishes. Let me know what you think about this polish. Are you a Unicorn Pee fan or are you sick of all the frenzy around it? Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!

  1. Gorgeous!!! Definitely on my wish list if I can ever catch it. Beautiful swatches as always.

    P.S. The weather in Southern California this past week (107 average) was beyond horrible! My old home in Encino reached 116! Loved the gloomy change of pace with rain this morning and cannot wait for fall weather which, in Southern California unfortunately means in mid November ?
