The maker was also running a giveaway contest in the fan group at the same time for a polish thrown in with your order and I also won that! 😀 Let’s take a look at Doorbuster #1 Unity, Doorbuster #2 Belonging, Doorbuster #3 Community, and Thankful For You.

This is definitely a jelly polish; the glitters do stick up. This is 3 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat. Not my favorite. :/

Formula is sheer but has a good thickness; it dries gritty. This is 3 coats plus top coat. I’m not usually a pink polish person but this is a nice change.

There were 6 doorbuster polishes in all – I only had a chance to grab these three. Did you grab any of the door busters?

Tonic Nail Polish Carnality color shift | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Tonic Nail Polish Carnality is a multi chrome polish that shifts from purple to plum to red to glowy red and at the edges a golden red. I had smooth application but it does dry quickly and a little patchy. I had a sheer first coat, this is 2 coats and no top coat. 

Of course I love the Baroness X – you all should know that from how often they’re featured on this blog. This is my first experience with Tonic, and I just have to order more to make a better informed decision. 😉
