10 Year Blog Anniversary | Tonic Polish

by Lisa Heath

Giveaway Items Gifted by Tonic Polish

I’m about halfway through the giveaway beauties, and I’m honestly blown away by the creations all the makers came up with for my blog anniversary. The next one up is from Tonic Polish!

Lindsey doesn’t do customs often, so when she said she would make one for my blog anniversary – I was thrilled. It took the long route here and I actually feared that USPS swallowed it up – but… after a long journey, it arrived a few weeks ago. I am an admin for the Tonic Polish FB group, which is currently archived as Lindsey is on a social media break and I’ve also worked with Lindsey on releases for several years now, which is why she said she would love to make a polish for the occasion.

Now a little about what’s going on with this month:

To celebrate my 10 years of constant posts – I have asked for maker volunteers to create a custom polish for a series of giveaways! Each maker donated at least 2 bottles of a custom – one for me to swatch and keep for the milestone and one to giveaway. 

While they made the custom for my blog – makers were given permission to release the custom at a later date. Not all will do this – some literally made it but didn’t save a recipe while others do intend to release it later. So I did make sure there was no exclusivity to the polish, and it’s up to the makers discretion.

Each maker had free rein to create what they wished to. I am a swatcher and not a maker for a reason and each individual maker has their own signature touch.

10 Year Blog Anniversary | Tonic Polish

CS Anniversary is a medium grey to pearl white crelly based thermal loaded with purpley-pink to gold to green aurora shimmer, and it glows almost an aqua blue in the dark. This does dry down with a matte finish. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

The Rules for The Giveaway

I will have a new giveaway up each day . Because of my schedule – I will draw winners for all giveaways ending that previous week on Sunday nights. I have each item in my possession so I will contact each winner for shipping information and then ship within 5 business days of receiving the shipping information.

To check out other active giveaways for this celebration – head here: https://www.cosmeticsanctuary.com/category/giveaway/current-giveaways/

I will only display the winners name on the widget AFTER the winner has responded to my email notifying they have won. I will be emailing from [email protected] – so please make sure the email is not in spam. If I have not received a response in 10 business days, I will draw a new winner and previous winner will forfeit their prize.

I display the names after because I have had people try to create emails and claim to be the winner before.

I will provide tracking for each winner. I am not responsible for lost or stolen packages. Once I ship, it’s out of my hands and I do not have replacement bottles.

Giveaway is open to EVERYONE. I will ship internationally for this because I want everyone who has followed along with me over the last 10 years to have a chance. Again though, if the package is missing, lost, stolen or confiscated on the way – I am not responsible for it and I will not be replacing.

I have made entering requirements easy. There are mandatory entries and one optional. The optional is only if you want an additional entry. The mandatory one you can come back daily to do as well if you wish to for more entries.

If you have additional questions, please email me at [email protected] and I will be happy to answer.

Thank you again Lindsey for working with me all these years and for creating a custom for this giveaway, even if customs aren’t something you regularly do. I look forward to your return to the indie world.

How could I ever pick just one?? I guess I’ll go with the obvious answer of Peacock Parade, since I’ve gone through multiple bottles and I rarely empty bottles completely other than base & top coats. I also use You’ll Move Mountains and Dulcinea multiple times each year.

This is a gorgeous polish, I love the purplish glitter shimmer and the blue glow in the dark! Tonic Polish is the first indie polish I started collecting and have been a fan for years! These polishes got me into collecting! My favorite color is Indiglo since it matches my hair (I’ve painted my husband’s nails with it too, haha. :) But also Tonic Appreciation 2018, because it’s a marker of when I became introduced into my polish collecting obsession!

Amanda Meek January 24, 2022 - 9:34 pm

Indiglo is another favorite! There are so many awesome polishes!

Stephanie M January 19, 2022 - 1:34 pm

I love coming here to check out your swatches and reviews, you do a wonderful job with all aspects of this blog. As for the giveaway, my fave Tonic is probably the one I’ve worn the most, Come Wander, with Rainbowfish a close second. Thank you for the giveaway and for all you do in the polish world!
