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.

I’m anxious for Spring, so wanted to do a Spring-like mani. So I went with the watercolor technique.

This über-feminine glitter polish is I Deglaze With Wine by Vivid LacquerI Deglaze With Wine is a glitter topper filled with a wide range of purple, red, and garnet hex glitter. I layered one coat over OPI Vant to Bite my Neck? I bet it would look great over a number of different colors!

You can buy I Deglaze With Wine from the Vivid Lacquer Etsy Shop.

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 subtle polish is called Snowjob from Vivid Lacquer. Okay, first up… SNOWJOB. hahaha! That name! Anyhow, Snowjob is a sky blue base filled with iridescent hexes and shreds, plus chunky and fine white glitter. This polish is part of the Winter 2012 collection, and is limited edition. I layered a couple coats of Snowjob over Sally Girl Coconut. It’s so pretty! It really does remind me of twinkling snow.

You can pick up bottle of Snowjob at Vivid Lacquer’s Etsy Shop.

Another awesome polish from Vivid Lacquer! This glitter bomb is Step Away From the Tinsel. It’s a glitter topper filled with mini iridescent and holographic bar glitter, plus small iridescent hexes. This polish is part of the Winter 2012 collection.

I layered two coats over black and sealed it all with some SV. You can buy Step Away From the Tinsel at the Vivid Lacquer Etsy Shop.

Lots more Vivid Lacquer polishes to come! Anni expanded one of her most popular polishes, Theoretical Rockstar (you can see my swatch here.) She’s come up with four more polishes based on the same idea. Theoretical Girlfriend, Vegan, Gamer, and Blogger. They’re jelly polishes packed with coordinating colored glitter and a small dose of holographic powder. BAM! Click on each picture to see what I layered them over.

You can buy these polishes and more at Vivid Lacquer’s Etsy Shop.

More Vivid Lacquer polish swatches! These two stunning ones are part of Anni’s St. Patrick’s Day Collection.

First up is Vivid Lacquer Leprechaun Dust. Leprechaun Dust is a limited edition polish. It features a dark grass green crelly base, designed to be warned without a base color. It is filled with iridescent glitter in several sizes for a subtle shimmer. I used three coats for my mani.

Then we have Vivid Lacquer Rainbow’s End. Rainbow’s End is a limited edition glitter topcoat reminiscent of a pot of gold sitting in a grassy field. It features round gold glitter, and holographic green/gold glitter in multiple sizes in a clear base.

You can buy them and other awesome polish at Vivid Lacquer’s Etsy shop.
