Swatch & Review: Tonic Polish – Spring 2017 Releases


Hey y’all, happy Friday! I’m gonna keep this post as short and sweet as possible because there is a lot of polishes and info to cover regarding the upcoming Tonic release. And let’s face it, you guys are more interested the polish than reading about my week or my weekend plans.

This post contains the 10 new Tonic polishes releasing this Sunday, May 7th. Collection/sets include Spring 2017, Femme Fatal/Tonic Collab: Four Seasons (only Tonics shown) and the May Baby Duo. I don’t know how Lindsey continues to create stunning polishes for each release, but as long as she does, I will continue to be a fan. If you’re not a member of the fan group, PLEASE JOIN!!!!, a little birdie told me there may or may not be another surprise polish being added to this release, but you didn’t hear that from me. Just join!!!

Let’s jump right in…

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

Spring 2017

I Pink You Blue Me Off

A bright cream blue with pink shimmer that shifts to yellow

Endless Shrimp

A soft coral cream with pale green shimmer that’s all but impossible to show on camera!

Deep Sea-crets

A bright turquoise cream with peachy-pink shimmer that shifts yellow.

Aurora Sunrise

An orchid-leaning pink jelly with strong turquoise-purple shifting shimmer and ultra holo micro glitters. This one may benefit from a third coat if you really don’t like VNL.

Titanium Orchic

A member of the “Lumichrome” family, which includes colors Incandescent, Luminescent, and Greenglow. A pale metallic multichrome that shifts from cool lavender to peach to gold with scattered holographic shimmer.


A metallic Rosegold to Yellow gold shifting multichrome with scattered holographic shimmer.

Femme Fatale / Tonic Collab: The Four Seasons

Inspired by Vivaldi’s violin concertos, Sophie and Lindsey each chose seasons to model our colors after. “Promise of Spring” is of course inspired by the fresh, light-hearted playfulness of the Spring concerto, and Bleeding Heart Sunset was inspired by the intense, sultry heat of the Summer concerto. Femme Fatale polishes include winter and autumn inspired colors, Ice-Kissed Grove and Woodland Mosaic. 

Promis of Spring

A pale metallic yellow-green Lumichrome that shifts to mint green and blue with a scattered holo shimmer.

Bleeding Heart Sunset

An orchid-lavender base with strong glowing pink multichrome shimmer that shifts to peach and gold with scattered holo shimmer.

May Baby Duo

In honor of Lindsey’s son Nico who turns 4 in May! His favorite color is green, the May birthstone is emerald, and one of our favorite books to read together is “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss.

The Places You’ll Go

Emerald green base with green-blue-purple-pink-gold shifting multichrome shimmer. Very sheer on the first coat but builds very quickly!

You’ll Move Mountains

Straight up glowing emerald green.
