Hello and welcome back! Here we knocking on the door of 2017 and as I sit and remember this year and all the good times and new experiences I’ve had, one of the highlights has to be working with Lindsey of Tonic Nail Polish. You might call her a magician when it comes to polish and that would be an accurate statement but truly now swatching the 4th collection from Tonic, I’m still in awe at her work and each masterpiece she creates.

From collection 1, as I unbox each polish, the same thought comes to mind, ‘this is my favorite!’ But how could it be that every polish you see you love?! It’s like finding something you didn’t know you were missing and trust me, this collection does not disappoint.

It is with great excitement and joy that I give you Tonic’s Holiday 2016 Collection!!

**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid and Tonic Top Coat by Tonic (shiny) and Matte Me by Jior Couture (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

Dragon Tears is made from the shiftiest multichrome pigment found, it shifts through a whole rainbow of Green-blue-purple-red-peach-gold-and back to green at the furthest angle. It has a sparkling scattered holo that does not dull the color shift and a sprinkling of tiny silver holo micro glitters.
