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 pretty tangerine polish is Crazy Random Happenstance 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.

Crazy Random Happenstance is a tangerine jelly with an assortment of iridescent and multicolor flakes.

You can buy Crazy Random Happenstance 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.

I’m participating in a Halloween nail art contest with some friends. There’s a lot of rules for this one. You have to use exactly two polishes, the polishes have to be Halloween colors and if you do nail art, you can only use a dotting tool or tape. This is what I came up with and used only a dotting tool for the designs.

I used my Migi Nail Art pens entirely for these nails. They were fun to do but I’m not into them so they’re coming off immediately. See you soon for zombie nails!!

When the Hunger Games line came out, I was most looking forward to Riveting.  I absolutely adore orange polish and this was DOES NOT disappoint!  It’s awesome.  I threw on some 2010 flakies to see what would happen.  Turns out, not much.  You can see them only just a little.
P.S.  Thanks for all the birthday wishes you guys! ♥
