Tonic Polish - Alchemy Review

Welcome back, y'all! It's time for another Tonic Polish review. These are my favorite and my most frustrating, all in one. The polishes themselves are gorgeous but I always feel like I don't capture all of the shiftiness with each polish, which they definitely are. I'm always interested in what she will come out with next, so make sure you're keeping an eye on her releases as well.  

This polish isn't available currently, but there are quite a few polishes so it's not a waste to check out her store.



Alchemy is a red/pink-orange-gold shifting multichrome with a blue/purple shadow. It features a sparkling scattered holo finish with tiny silver holo micro glitters. 



Bottle macro.


Glossy nail macro.


This is so gorgeous, so complex, so difficult to show all of its facets. There will be a ton more images on Instagram, if you're looking for all that this polish can do (it's a lot)!


I especially love the berry-ness of the polish (although that's my berry-loving bias).


Matte nail macro.


Matte, some of the deeper reds fall to more browns and greens. You'd be surprised at how long I played with this polish inside, outside, under all sorts of lighting, etc. It is such a gorgeous polish and I feel like the bottle in this picture shows off so much of the goodness!


Formula: Good, first coat is streaky.
Coats for Opacity: Three thin coats.
Ease of Dry: Slow.
Texture: Smooth, none noted.
Finish: Glossy shine.

As always, let me know what you thought of this polish in the comments!
