Marionnaud Lime Tonic - swatches and review

For today's Green Wednesday I want to show you a yellow toned lime green shimmer polish from a brand called Marionnaud.
This was a totally new brand for me and I don't think you can get hold of it here in Sweden. I was very lucky to get it through a swap with the lovely Natalia at Polished Polyglot who lives in Switzerland. It's such a bright and fun polish and I've got nothing like it in my collection!



GOOD TO KNOW ABOUT LIME TONIC:

Type of polish: Shimmer.

Colour: A yellow toned lime green with gold and silver shimmer.

Opacity: Very good! This is two coats.

Formula: Very good! Very easy to control. Self leveling and no stroke marks. 

Brush: Excellent! Very wide and firm! Super easy to work with! I was very surprised to find such an excellent brush in such small bottle (5ml)!

Shine: Very shiny on its own so I have no top coat in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Accurate! But even more gorgeous irl! The shimmer really shows on the nails.

Grade: 5/5 :D

After the first coat I wasn't impressed at all but after the second coat I was smitten! It's such a bright, happy and fun polish! I really like that it's both silver and gold shimmer in it. And I'm still awed by that amazing brush in that small bottle!
I'd definitely like to try more Marionnaud's!

How do you like Lime Tonic?
Have you tried any Marionnaud polishes?

  4. Not my color but it looks pretty on you ;)
    I have only one Marionnaud, a pale pink with a subtle gold shimmer which is not that bad but I don't really like it. Marionnaud is a beauty shop such as Sephora for example, there are plenty of it here, in France ;)

  6. Oh, just en sån här härlig grön nyans som jag älskar! :) Känns fruktigt och fräscht på något vis.
    Känner inte till märket sen innan heller, så alltid kul med det också. :)
