Tarts n Talons

All nails are by me unless otherwise posted. My personal blog was getting flooded by my nail art so I gave my talons their own blog.

For my Memorial Day mani, I was aiming for a funky half moon with a dotted starburst. But it turned out kind of Dalek-ey. haha! Oh well.

Hey babes! It’s been foreeeeever, okay more like a month, since I’ve done my nails. I’ve been so incredibly busy that I just haven’t had the time. Also I’ve been feeling very uninspired with my nail art lately. Well, I took some time today to do something simple- to get me back onto the horse so they say.

I broke 3 nails in one day! Ugh. I’m distracting myself with one of my favorite glitters.

This colorful polish is Metamorphosis from Vivid Lacquer. Metamorphosis is a glitter bomb in a clear base. The variety of glitter includes holographic silver butterflies, large pink holographic hexes, and blue and brown hexes in various sizes. Don’t you just love the butterflies?? This is just one coat over China Glaze Sunday Funday.

You can buy Metamorphosis from the Vivid Lacquer Etsy shop.

This stunning polish is You Are NOT My Nemesis from Vivid Lacquer. It’s part of her The Evil Collection of Evil collection which is based off of Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog.

You Are NOT My Nemesis is an icy topcoat filled with blue micro flakes, white shreds, and blue hex glitter which really shines and sparkles layered over a dark polish.

You can buy You Are NOT My Nemesis and the rest of the collection at the Vivid Lacquer Etsy shop starting January 18th. Anni will have mini and full-sized bottles in stock.

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Earlier this week Anni sent me some of her new Vivid Lacquer polishes to swatch. I’ll post them this week.

Up first is Vivid Lacquer’s Pick Your Portal. It’s part of her Thankful For My Console collection. It’s a white jelly nail polish filled with orange and blue hexes in multiple sizes. You can see it swatched with 1 and 2 coats. I also did some nail art with it. I used two coats Pick Your Portal over Kiss Nail Art in White, Orly Blue Collar, and OPI A Roll in the Hague.

You can buy Pick Your Portal at Vivid Lacquer’s Etsy shop.

Another amazing polish from Vivid Lacquer. This blue beauty is called Have Fun Storming the Castle. Does it look familiar? It’s the sibling of Your Princess is in Another Castle. Instead of pink and silver glitter, Anni used blue and gold. I blinged it up with some nail rhinestones. This is just two coats of Have Fun Storming the Castle. Bonus blurred photo to show holographic glitter!! Get yours at VL’s Etsy shop.

Another swatch from Vivid Lacquer's Halloween Collection! This one is Waning Gibbous. It’s a stunning, amazing blue jelly polish. Look at the squishy goodness! Look at the glitter! This is three coats of Waning Gibbous by itself. Definitely a must-have polish. Get it soon in Anni’s Etsy shop.
