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.

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.
