Tonic Polish All The Things

Hello, folks! I have a swatch post today, featuring a very special polish – Tonic Polish All The Things. This custom polish was made in very limited quantities to celebrate the six-year anniversary of the Nearly No Rules (NNR) Nail Polish Sales group on Facebook.

Tonic Polish Guardians of the Tower

Hello, there! This has been a tough, tough week. Baby ACD has developed a wicked diaper rash for the first time in her life and is in agony. She is handling it like a champ, but it’s breaking my heart that she is in so much pain. She also just started going to daycare last… Continue reading Tonic Polish Guardians of the Tower

Tonic Polish Lizard Dance

Ever since Baby ACD was born, my husband and I have been pretty much obsessing over baby poop. The bulk of our daily conversation deals with the colour, consistency and frequency of poop.

Tonic Polish Rainbowfish

Hello! Another beauty from Tonic Polish for you today. This one came out in the debut collection in 2016 and I successfully talked myself out of snagging this one until about a month ago.

Lilac Duochrome Frankenpolish

Hello, folks! Today I’ll share a nail polish that I frankened a couple of months ago and never got around to posting. For those of you who have never heard of “frankening”, it’s when you mix in other polish colours or tints to a base polish colour (or even to a clear base) to make… Continue reading Lilac Duochrome Frankenpolish

Tonic Polish Lunar Lust

Hello, there! As I mentioned in my last swatch post, it has become a bit of a sub-hobby to photograph bottles of shifty, multichrome polish, so I’ve decided to continue doing such (swatch?!?) posts for some of the more shifty ones. I received all my Tonic Polish polishes a while back, and am slowly trying… Continue reading Tonic Polish Lunar Lust

Tonic Polish Incandescent

Hello, folks! Hope you’re all having a wonderful week! I have for you today something I’ve never done before — a swatch. I normally don’t do swatches, but in recent months I’ve purchased a couple of polishes that are just so gorgeous, I wanted to share. It’s also becoming a bit of an obsession to… Continue reading Tonic Polish Incandescent
