Tonic Huckleberry Sparkle
A major lemming for every purple polish lover that doesn't have it is Cirque's Coronation, and I am certainly no exception. One day, I should line up all the purples I've bought to try and put this lemming to bed. One of the more recent contenders is Tonic's Huckleberry Sparkle.

Tonic blew onto the indie polish scene a few months ago with an incredibly well put-together inaugural collection, including this luscious purple crelly. Huckleberry is sprinkled with little holo microglitters, and overlaid with a gorgeous coppery contrasting shimmer.

Look at that glow, YASSSSSSSSS.

HS is a bit thicker than ideal (I'll likely be thinning just a smidge before wearing again), a little sticky in the way that overworking one spot drags it up a bit, and is opaque in 2 coats. It's the kind of devastating color that gets you compliments from strangers at stores.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. The formula was a little persnickety, but the color is soooo worth it.
Where to buy: direct from Tonic.
