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.

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.

If it isn’t painfully obvious, I have a serious obsession with glitter nail polish. I love them all, I can’t get enough! If this sounds like you, then boy do I have a polish you’ll love. This OMG glitter insanity is Woo! Tangent from Vivid Lacquer as part of her Thankful For My Console Collection. Anni describes Woo! Tangent as “a glitter bomb that is designed to be completely random. Every glitter I possess is mixed into a large batch and poured into every bottle to give a dense glitter finish that is entirely unpredictable.” It sounds perfect to me!

I swatched Woo! Tangent with 1 and 2 coats. And then I layered one coat over Essie Lilacism. You can really see the variety of all the different glitters. LOVE! You can buy Woo! Tangent at the Vivid Lacquer Etsy shop.

I’m back! I finished swatching all these great polishes and I’ll post them as soon as they’re available for sale. I recently bought A Crewed Interest and I love it! I was inspired to add gold immediately. Pastel and gold. Such a great match!
