Haven't yet tried it, but a gorgeous glittery polish. It arrived beautifully packaged - always a plus!

Great polish. Lovely blue shimmers and purple and black glitters. Applies smoothly and easy to take off.
A passion becomes a career
Since I was a little girl I've loved doing my nails. In 2012 I took voluntary redundancy from a job I didn't enjoy and after some thought about what I wanted to do, I realised I could turn something I loved doing into a career. I started a blog and after networking and reading other blogs I realised people love handmade nail polish but it was hard to get in the UK and meant paying high shipping costs and custom charges! I had been making my own nail polish when I couldn't find a shade I wanted and decided that I had to research moving forward into creating an indie nail polish brand. I spent a long time comparing websites, shop hosts, suppliers and design ideas and after a lot of hard work, here I am with a brand! TarasTalons is the result of lots of handwork, sleepless nights and working until 5am which was all worth it! I am very proud of it and I hope you enjoy it :)
My name is Tara and I created the brand TarasTalons because I am very passionate about nails and nail polish and there were no indie polish creators in the UK!

Additional policies and FAQs
Polishes are handmade by TarasTalons in the UK
TarasTalons is a pet free and smoke free environment
Every effort is made to ensure the colour accuracy of all products, however due to these could vary slightly depending on the settings of the device you are using etc.
I use a 5free base which contains no DPB, formaldehyde, formaldehyde Resin, toluene or camphor. The ingredients of this base are as follows; Ethyl Acetate, Butyl Acetate, Nitrocellulose, Denatured Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Adipic Acid/Neopentyl Glycol/Trimelitic, Anhydride Copolymer, Triphenyl Phosphate, Trimethyl Pentanyl, Disobutyrate, Acrylates Copolymer, Silica, CI60725
The base used for TarasTalons polish is also cruelty-free (the end product is not tested on animals either), vegan and EU approved and manufactured. I also use cosmetically approved pigments and solvent resistant glitters and other nail polish making materials to create polishes. Occasionally some polishes may be partially 'frankenpolished'.
All pigments and glitters used are tested for up to twelve months to ensure their stability as are the created polishes
TarasTalons polishes come in 12ml and 6.5ml bottles, however these are advertised as 10ml and 5ml as due to the brush displacement, leaving room for an air bubble etc the bottle is never completely packed with product so you will get 10ml or 5ml of actual product depending on which size you choose
With some polishes containing neon glitter, the glitter could start to lose colour and tint the base slightly after 6-12 months. This usually doesn't happen but it can depending on the environment they are kept in and other variables
Custom TarasTalons polishes created could be similar to polishes that have been on sale before or created as custom polishes before as they are created by the customer with no/little creative input from me
It is recommended that you use a base coat to prevent any staining that may occur. I also recommend that you use the 'foil' method of removing nail polish rather than rubbing as this can cause staining of the nails and cuticles
TarasTalons holo topcoat and holo polishes could differ slightly in particle size from bottle to bottle but will always be packed with that gorgeous rainbow finish! TarasTalons does not use spectra flair
Store in a cool dry place. Do not store in direct sunlight
Nail polish is flammable, keep away from flame and fire
Any and all nail polishes, both indie and mainstream can settle and/or separate over time, please shake or roll your nail polish to 'remix' or 'redistribute' it if this should happen
Only suitable to wear on nails. If product gets in eyes or is consumed please seek medical advice
