NOTD: Tara's Talons 'B-Angel'
I bought 'B-Angel' from Tara's Talons a couple of months back and have been dying to use it ever since; unfortunately, I can't wear nail polish for my new job, which has meant I've been doing my nails a lot less recently. I have three days off this weekend, however, so this morning I finally cracked out 'B-Angel' for its first use! I started, as ever, with OPI's Nail Envy as a base, before applying two coats of 'Papaya' from Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine range; 'Papaya' is a beautiful corally-pink shade which is perfect for Spring/Summer, although it doesn't suit my skintone very well - sob! I then added one coat of 'B-Angel', which applied beautifully, going on very smooth and having a relatively even glittery distribution without any fishing and with only minimal re-positioning on the nails. I finished with a coat of Jacava London's UV Filter Top Coat to smooth everything off and seal it in nicely!
I really love the way 'B-Angel' looks on my nails, the larger glitter particles are really striking whilst the holo gives a more subtle effect but looks absolutely stunning in direct sunlight - the photos don't really do it justice! Tara's Talons has recently had a re-brand, now called The Tara Emporium, and Tara is stocking a larger range of products, including bath bombs and phone cases. 'B-Angel' is available from Tara's Etsy shop, priced at £3.50 for 5ml. Have you ever tried a holo topper? Do you like the look of 'B-Angel'? What sort of polish would you like to see it over?
