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.

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.

Inspired by Rina Alcantara’s blue roses, I wanted to recreate my own ombre roses featuring one of my favorite polishes- OPI Miami Beet. I painted my nails with Miami Beet and then mixed it with white nail polish to create the ombre tones for the abstract rose petals.

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.

I looked it up and the last time Eugene, Oregon had a white Christmas was 22 years ago! I wanted to do a manicure that reminded me of a gentle snowfall. Merry Christmas!

Long time no see! I’ve been so busy with my SLUG Queen activities, that I haven’t been able to paint my nails. I’ve been really wanting to wear orange lately so this is what I came up with.
