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.

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.

Hey babes! Anni over at Vivid Lacquer has been busy! She has a new spring collection called The Evil Collection of Evil. These seven polishes are all inspired by Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog. How utterly cool is that?! I’ll be posting my swatched photos of the collection over the next few days.

First up is Evil League of Evil. It’s a deep plum jelly with purple micro glitter, shimmer, and blue and purple square glitter.

You can buy Evil League of Evil 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. Also, check her Facebook page for updates, sales and more photos.

These two polishes are sneak peeks from Vivid Lacquer. Anni has been secretly collaborating with a makeup designer to make these polishes. I’m not at liberty to reveal who she’s collaborating with but aren’t they gorgeous? Both polishes are also unnamed. First up is a stunning purple flakie. I used three coats by itself. The second polish has multi-sized black and orange glitter. It also has small gold glitter and black stars! I layered two coats over the purple flakie. Match made in heaven I think! These polishes should be for sale soon in Vivid Lacquer’s Etsy shop.

Moonlit Cheshire by Vivid Lacquer is a lavender jelly base sprinkled with black, silver, and purple flakes, plus holographic black and fine silver and lavender glitter. The complexity and texture of it is really great. I used just one coat of Moonlit Cheshire over my gradient nails. So pretty! On sale July 13th!

My entry for Day 6 of Nail Challenge- purple. First World Purple is an awesome glitter a friend of mine makes over at Twee & Honey.  She threw it in as a sample when I bought Magpie.  I thought it would look great as a jelly sandwich paired with I Love You and I was right.  I love it!

I recently picked this up at my local drugstore.  It’s one of the new colors by SH.  It is stunning!  Rich, metallic, jeweled toned purple heaven!  It applied smooth, this is only two coats.  I can’t imagine anyone not loving this polish.
