Press Sample buttonMorning everyone! I am so excited to show you these photos of Baroness X Fire Opal with my giveaway nail polish duo of Be Happy and Buy Polish [press sample].

Baroness X Sir Cockicorn vs ILNP The Magician: how do they match up?

Purchased by Me buttonMorning everyone! I worked on comparison posts this week with unicorn pee polishes – so called because the pigment used to make them is so rare. Today I have one of the newest on the market: ILNP The Magician to go up against a similar polish, Baroness X Sir Cockicorn [previously swatched].

Baroness X Hedonist + Tonic Nail Polish Carnality swatches + review

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone! This duo from Baroness X and Tonic Nail Polish was up for sale back in January and I just had to snap it up. Let’s take a look at Baroness X Hedonist and Tonic Nail Polish Carnality.

Baroness X Hedonist is a holographic olive green-brown base with gold shimmer. It was sheer but had a good thickness. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

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. 😉
