Let's get into the swatches!

TONIC MANIC PANIC

Manic Panic is a bright purple creme. 

My swatches show Manic Panic applied in 2 easy creamy coats and provides amazing coverage even upon the 1st coat, without being thick and gloopy.

$12.75 CAD - 15ml

TONIC FACET-NATING

Facet-nating is a super shifty red-gold-green multi chrome (and multi-sized!) flakes paired with iridescent blue flakes!
 
My swatches of Facet-nating is shown in 2 coats overtop Manic Panic. It looked great with just 1 coat overtop, but I wanted to see if the 2nd coat built up more depth. This polish is so beautifully complex and shifts with different hues dependant on the angle of your nails. It can also double as a topper. Down below will be swatch comparison photo's between glossy and matte finishes!

$18 CAD - 15ml

TONIC ANGEL PARADE

Angel Parade is a super pigmented gold-green-silver-blue multi chrome addition to their Multichrome Parade family of colours! 

My swatches of Angel Parade are shown in 2 coats, paired with a glossy top coat. She's shifty and fabulous, but I advise being mindful on application - keep your coats thin as the natural of the metallic pigments showcase brush stroke lines. Keep coats thin to minimize visible brush stoke lines.

$19.25 CAD - 15ml

TONIC I'M SO FRESH

I'm so Fresh is a new glowing mint green shimmer addition to their "I'm so Fancy" base coat line up! Made with the same base formula as their classic French Undies base coat, it strengthens, smooths, and protects your natural nails and also helps with polish wear time! Tonic's "I'm so Fancy" base coats are designed to provide additional coverage and brightness under sheer nail polish colours or can be worn all on their own for a super quick and easy manicure! Once coat gives a sheer, delicate colour, or build up a few coats for more impact! They can even be used as a fun topper over another colour!

My swatches of I'm so Fresh are shown in 3 coats, paired with a glossy top coat. Upon application, the 1st coat is quite sheer and made me think this polish would double as a topper. When I was applying the 2nd coat, it actually provided for really great coverage and was satisfied with the 2 coats. I did 3 to see if it built more depth and it definitely helped amplify the colour a tad more. Be mindful to keep coats thin to avoid visible brush stoke lines. This one has such a beautiful glow factor!

$11.75 CAD - 15ml

TONIC HOT GUAVA

Hot Guava is a neon coral addition to their Neon Brights family of colours! Pretty close to their False Alarm neon, just a slight more pink option!

My swatches shown Hot Guava are shown in 2 easy creamy coats, paired with a glossy top coat. My camera wasn't able to capture the colour accuracy of this polish. If you've ever tried to capture neon polishes in a photo, you'll understand what I mean lol. I find it's leaning more neon orange but it's definitely supposed to be more pink. Although, this polish also contains orange undertones. My camera was just not having it lol - sorry guys.

$12.75 CAD - 15ml

TONIC STARLIT DAWN

Starlit Dawn is a tiny bit of a scattered holo mixed with a ton of peach-red iridescent shimmer and flakes that shift to yellow and green make for a resonant, fiery, ethereal polish with a million wear possibilities! Looks lovely on it's own in 2 coats, add a 3rd for a more opaque look, or try over other shades - it also makes for a fantastic topper.

My swatches of Starlit Dawn are shown in 3 coats, paired with a glossy top coat. I can't stress enough about how much I LOVE polishes like this - it's absolutely stunning! I also wanted to see this in action as a topper, so I applied it in 1 coat overtop Hot Guava - reminds me of a summer sunset!

$18 CAD - 15ml

TONIC TRANSFORM STICKS

Info from Tonic:

This is a brand new product entirely different from our tinted balms, and one I could not possibly be more excited about!! It's also not your average lipstick!!

I love lip products almost as much as I love nail polish, but I'm far more picky about the formulas I use! I have somewhat sensitive skin and my lips dry out easily from many lip products and doesn't seem to accept most long-wear type products.

What I have been trying to create, ever since I started experimenting with cosmetic formulations, is a super moisturizing, feel good, easy to wear, easy to apply, easy to carry, dramatic lip colour that can show off specialty colour shifting shimmers and flakes!

The result is the Tonic Transform Stick! If you were to make a Venn diagram with lipstick, gloss, balm, and salve circles the overlapping area in the middle would be Tonic Transform!

- Dramatic color!

- Multichrome and iridescent colour shifts!

- Super soft, almost gel-like stick formula glides on easily!

- Shiny, glossy finish!

- Packed with good-for-your skin, hydrating ingredients like jojoba butter, castor oil, fractionated coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and Vitamin E!

- Packagd in our 0.15 ounce oval shaped balm tube which makes it easy to carry and apply! BONUS - the cap stays on tight - don't you HATE it when lipstick tube caps fall off in your bag and you end up with lipstick covering everything???

**CRULETRY FREE! The only animal Tonic products are tested on is ME!

**NOT a vegan product: contains a small amount of beeswax.
