Swatch & Art: Tonic Polish - Bloody Hell

Today I have another polish from the upcoming Fall/Halloween collection from Tonic Polish. The color is perfect for fall!

*Polish provided as a Press Sample for review*
Bloody Hell - Blackened maroon jelly base with sparkly ruby-red shimmer and sprinklings of tiny holo micro glitters, and glowing iridescent blue micro glitters that sparkle out mysteriously in certain lights like eyes glowing out of the darkness. Opaque in 2-3 coats. Top coat is strongly recommended for maximum shine and color impact.



Lindsey mentioned that the formula on this one may be a bit thicker, and I found that to be true, so I only needed 2 coats to reach opacity. I actually prefer a thicker formula so this one was just perfect for me.
With topcoat and direct light, it almost looks like it's still wet - the gloss and shine really stands out! Without topcoat it has a slight textured feeling.



 
Bloody Hell quickly became one of my favorite polishes from collection, even as a surprise to myself, as I normally don't wear reds that often.
Of course I had to go with fall stamping to pair with Bloody Hell, and there are plenty of leaves around!

Stamping plates: BornPretty Store BPL-024 and BP 19; for the stamping polish I used Rose Gold from Bonita Colors and a burnt orange from BornPretty Store

Tonic's Fall/Halloween collection is coming on 10/2 - there are 8 polishes total and so far I've shown 3, so hang around to see the others!
