Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have a review of the acetone tonic from Message Beauty to share with you. As you'll read in my post, I am pretty damn excited about this new product and I can't wait for everyone to see it!
Let me start off by telling you a little bit about Message Beauty. Its a brand new luxury beauty line specializing in organic and cruelty free nail and hand care products. The friend of mine who owns the line is launching on October 9th and the acetone tonic is one of her initial launch items.

What is acetone tonic? Okay so...its basically magic in a bottle. You know how pure acetone severely depletes the moisture in your skin and nails and leaves that white, crustiness around your nails after you use it? I DO! I usually avoid acetone for removal and just stick to using it for cleanup. Either way, it dries me out and requires that I use cuticle oil before I can photograph my manis. All of those things are things of the past if you have some of this tonic in your acetone. The tonic moisturizes your skin as you remove your polish or clean up around your nails instead of drying you out. This really saves me when I'm swatching because I don't want to have to wait in between polishes for my cuticle oil to soak in before taking my photos. I also like that I get all of the effectiveness of pure acetone without the harsh, drying properties. It leaves behind a faint smell of whichever scent you choose instead of leaving behind the yucky scent of acetone. I did a full demo of this product on my Youtube channel if you'd like to see it go head to head with pure acetone:
The instructions are to add a full tube of tonic to 8 fluid ounces of pure acetone and gently invert your container a few times to mix. The results change the color of your acetone but not its overall effectiveness. You'll notice that the scent goes away after you add your tonic to the acetone, don't directly sniff your acetone to find out. I already made that mistake. I'm sure my face looked something like this:
