Tokidoki

5:48 PM




Well...I finally made it out to Sephora to see what's left of my favorite make-up line, Tokidoki. Remarkably, a lot of what I wanted was still there so I pretty much cleaned up at 40% off!! I also managed to snag four of their polishes, which I'm going to be swatching for you today! The polishes I'm showing you today are: SANDy, Latte, and Donutella.  I also purchased Savana but it's very similar to SANDy though it doesn't have the multi-bar glitter.  So here we go...

SANDy is a clear base with gold micro glitter and gold and holo bar glitter.  This is three coats. The coverage is nice but still a bit sparse as you can tell from the second photo which was taken in the sun.  The formula is thin on these and the brush is on the thin side as well. I'd liken it to an Essie or China Glaze brush.  Even though it's a thin formula it's pretty easy to work with and it wasn't difficult to build an even coverage.

Latte is a clear base with blue micro glitter and purple and holo bar glitter.  I think this was my favorite of the three color wise.  It also required three coats for full coverage but you can see that it's more compact than SANDy and it really covered well with three coats.  I like that these glitter polishes are buildable so that they can be used over things or on their own.  The formula was the same as the SANDy; a bit thin but very easy to work with.

Finally, we have Donutella.  I have no idea how they decided on the character names for these because to me, there is nothing Donutella about this shade (nor was there anything Latte about the previous!!) but it's a gorgeous color none the less.  Same as the preceeding two Donutella is a clear base with a deep magenta micro glitter and holo bar glitter.  It had the most vibrant color of the three and was mostly opaque in three coats.  Formula was the same as the previous two.  I really love the way these all shimmered in the sun. They're just insanely sparkly and reminded me a lot of the China Glaze Prismatics.  


Overall I'm happy with these polishes.  They cost me $6 each which I felt like was a fair price for them.  The coverage is thin but easily builds to opaque in just a few coats which is a plus to me because sometimes I like a full coverage glitter and other times I like a more sparse look over another color.  The bar glitter can sometimes make polishes a nightmare to work with but these went on very easily without any maneuvering required to get the bars on the nail properly.  If they weren't discontinued, I'd definitely buy more!  Plus the bottles are VERY thick and super cute.  They're not cheaply packaged at all.  I did also purchase Savana and it's a clear base with gold and pink micro glitter.  It reminded me a lot of SANDy without the holo bars, but SANDy does not have the pink micro glitter either.  Thanks for looking!! Do you have any Tokidoki polishes?
