***PRESS (PR) SAMPLE NOTICE ***
It’s officially time to get excited!!! The Tonic February Release is upon us! Starting this Sunday, February 11th at 2:00pm CST, new and returning polishes will be available for pre-order! Please note – TAT (turn-around time) is generally 2-3 weeks from the date your order is placed, but can possibly be sooner depending upon the sequence in which orders are placed.
Tonic will be releasing FOUR “Unicorn Pee” based colors available through the end of February: Uniporn Adorned, Happenstance, Bauble, and Necromantic! (Subject to availability of this pigment as it is long discontinued, and very difficult to find).
Lastly, there will be 15 new, returning and vault colors available as pre-order through the end of March!
**All swatches are done using Commitment Issues (liquid latex peel off base coat) by Vapid, Top Coat (glossy, QDTC) from Glisten & Glow and Onward Through the Fog (Matte Topcoat) by Vapid. Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**
Uniporn Adorned $15 – Uniporn’s spangled sister: same recipe (a glassy sheer red with OG (original red-green shifting) Unicorn Pee shimmer)with red orange-gold-green iridescent flakes to accentuate the unicorn pee shimmer and also turn her into a blingy showstopper, especially when layered over a darker cream or jelly base color!
Happenstance $15 – Serendipity’s sister: just like Uniporn Adorned, Happenstance is the same recipe as Serendipity (purple with red-gold-green OG Unicorn Pee shimmer) but with the complementary iridescent flakes added. Technically a jelly finish, but looks good in 2 thick or 3 thin coats!
Bauble $15 – the iridescent sister to the previously released Curio. Blurple base with OG Unicorn Pee pigment and the complementary iridescent flakes.
Necromantic $15 – this one has no predecessor! Tonic’s first black based Unicorn Pee polish with the iridescent Red/orange-gold-green iridescent flakes!
Helpless $13 – our next addition to our multichrome magnetic family! Very dark teal base with multichrome magnetic shimmer that shifts from red/violet-gold-green and indigo iridescent flakes! (Magnets available separately for $2 each.)
Ambrosia $13 – this is the sister to one of my all-time favorite Tonic colors: Emberlight, which was released as part of the limited edition Seasonal Indie Box in Fall 2017. Ambrosia has a deep Teal-Blue base (as opposed to the black base of Emberlight) with the same red-gold multichrome shimmer and scattered holo!
I Dig Your Vibe $12 – developed as a special thank you polish and previously only given away as gifts, we are now making this color available to all! Dark navy blue base with pink/purple to green shifting multichrome shimmer and lots of linear holo!
