Swatch & Review: Turtle Tootsie – October Birthstone Trio


Between, work, school, basketball, band, run club and gymnastics, Tuesday is quite the busy day in my house. Pick up and drop off all happening at different times and at different place, it’s a little hectic but we make it work. I will say though that I look forward to Wednesdays like no other! So welcome to Wednesday folks, happy humpday!

Today I have more October Birthstone goodness in the form of a trio by Turtle Tootsie. If your new to the Queendom aka my blog, then I’ll catch you up to speed, vets bare with me. Every month Chrissy from Turtle Tootsie polishes releases a trio consisting of a glitter crelly, a holo and a glitter topper in a shade inspired by the months birthstone. You don’t have to be born in the particular month to purchase as it’s open to all. This month,  the trio represent Tourmaline, one of the 2 birthstones of October.

Tourmaline is not a single mineral, but a group of several closely related minerals and it’s name means stone of mixed colors. Tourmaline is available in a spectrum of colors and color combinations as it is the most colorful of all gemstones. It occurs in all colors, but pink, red, green, blue and multicolored are its most well-known gem colors.

Let’s see how Tourmaline lives up to its name! 

**All swatches are done using liquid latex peel off base coat, glossy QDTC and matter topcoat. Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**
