Today I have some swatches from a UK indie brand, Tara's Talons. Tara launched her brand at the start of the year, and since then has gone from strength to strength selling her pretties! Today I have two polishes from the Underwater Wonder World collection to show you, Where the Mermaid Roam and Neptune.
Tara describes Where the Mermaid Roam as a limited edition hand made matte blue polish, and I think it is very appropriately named! It's such a pretty, shimmery ocean blue that would make a great base for some water-themed nail art or stamping! I would describe it as a satin finish - semi-matte without topcoat, but looks gorgeous glossy too. It is sheer - for the swatches I used 2 coats over Models Own Feeling Blue on all fingers except my pinkie, which is 4 coats on it's own. Saying that, in this instance, sheer doesn't mean streaky, and the application was smooth and easy.
Next up, Neptune. Tara describes this as limited edition hand made matte grey polish with glitters in gold, green, bronze and blue. Again, this one has a semi-matte finish, but I would recommend a good topcoat otherwise, as with all glitters of this type, it can be a bit bumpy. Don't let it put you off though, as the shimmery, metallic base looks just stunning and has such depth when it's glossy. I used two coats here, but if you were careful you could use one and easily get away with it ;)
All of Tara's polishes come in 5ml or 10ml bottles - and look at the cute packaging!
