October 2018 Collection & BFTV Shades

I have 12 shades to share with you tonight that make up the October 2018 Collection & BFTV Shades!

9 of these shades are brand new to the lineup and are the October Collection. 4 are Back From The Vault Shades (BFTV) that I will also be sharing in the same post so you have most of the October 14th releases in one spot. I do have the Tonic half of the Polish Palette as well, and those will go up in their own post once the Rogue Lacquer half arrives.

We’ve got a lot of ground to cover and I’m losing steam so let’s breeze through these before I fall asleep! We’re going to look at the new October 2018 Collection first, then move into the BFTV shades.

Tonic Nail Polish | Witchy Woman

Witchy Woman is a black jelly base with a strong coral red to gold shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tonic Nail Polish | Monster Mash

Monster Mash is a periwinkle (Cold) to lilac Warm) shifting thermal with bright green to purple shimmery flecks mixed in. It also glows in the dark, but I didn’t know that until about 2 seconds ago – so I’ll update with those pictures tomorrow night. Updated!

This shade naturally dries down to a matte finish, which I quite liked, but I did add a closeup photo of it glossy as well in it’s cold state.

3 thin coats were used.

Tonic Nail Polish | Thriller

Thriller is a dark navy blue jelly base packed with red to green shifting unicorn pee shimmer, as well as silver ultra holographic microglitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tonic Nail Polish | Red Right Hand

Red Right Hand is a pale grey creme base with bright red to gold shifting shimmer. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tonic Nail Polish | Don’t Fear The Reaper

Don’t Fear The Reaper is a pale grey creme base with blue to purple shifting shimmer mixed in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tonic Nail Polish | Time Warp

Time Warp is a blue grey scattered holographic with blue to purple shifting shimmer flecks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tonic Nail Polish | Walk Through Fire

Walk Through Fire is a greyish blue scattered holographic with red to green shifting shimmer flecks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tonic Nail Polish | I Put A Spell On You

I Put A Spell On You is a smokey purple based gold to silver shifting multichrome with scattered holographic. Because of the multichrome pigment used in this base, it gives the multichrome a gold to bronze to chocolate brown to smokey purple looking shift which is incredible.

I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tonic Nail Polish | Snow Glowbe

Snow Glowbe is a limited edition red to green shifting Unicorn Pee topper with medium and small orange to gold to green shifting hex glitters mixed into a pink tinted base. It also glows an orangish green in the dark.

I used this 2 ways – the first is by itself in 4 thin coats. The second set is 1 coat of Snow Glowbe over OPI I Saw… U Saw… We Saw… Warsaw.

Snow Glowbe is limited to the Halloween Season only. It will be released again in December, but without the glow effect.

Tonic Nail Polish | Pepper

The first BFTV shade is Pepper! This is a deep, dusty  purple base with unicorn pee pigment that shifts from red to gold to green. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tonic Nail Polish | Oops No 7 (Mulled X)

Oops No 7 (Mulled X) is from Polish Con, and this is a deep berry linear holographic with red shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tonic Nail Polish | Firefly

Firefly is a blue navy jelly base loaded with red to green shifting shimmer as well as red to gold to green shifting iridescent flecks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Tonic Nail Polish | River

River is a medium, vibrant lavender purple to bright blue shifting thermal base with red to green shifting shimmer flecks mixed in. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat.

It dries down to a matte, so I showed it in both glossy and matte closeup.

Tonic Nail Polish October 2018 Collection & BFTV Shades

Whew! Okay so lots of gorgeous shades in here. I will update the post to include both Monster Mash and River as a Glow In The Dark. I knew they were thermal, but not the glowy part – so oops.

Everything applied really well and I’m quite happy with all of the shades. My favorites though have to be: River, Firefly, Walk Through Fire and I Put A Spell On You.

Prices aren’t fully set yet, but once they are – I will update you all as well.

Release Date: October 14th at 2pm CDT

I am bowled over by this beautiful October collection. I definitely want Witchy Woman and I would also like Firefly and Snow Glowbe. Now I really regret 2 recent rather pedestrian polish purchases I recently made :(

My life is ruined. I promised no more polishes and then you post these. I adore Tonic and can’t get enough of them. I am going to have to choose carefully between these beauties and PPU. At least I have some of the BFTV already. You really know how to show these polishes at their best.

NO ONE does nail swatches and photographs like you do, Lisa! I’m always in awe. I adore River. I haven’t quite spotted the unicorn-pee type of shimmer in a thermal polish before; it’s gorgeous.
