NOTD | Purple Holo
It's been quite some time since I've shared a NOTD post on Just Jess - sadly, I can't wear nail polish at work, so I just don't get the opportunity to paint my nails as often as I used to! It does make it quite a treat when I have a couple of days off, though, to sit down and choose a polish... I'd like to apologise for this post as no matter how much you might like the look of my nail polish, you can't have it - this is an un-named polish from UK indie polish brand Tara's Talons, I bought this from Tara a couple of months back when she was having a clear-out and I think there were only two bottles available; I hope you'll agree that it's super pretty, though, and you can check out the polishes you can buy from Tara on her Etsy shop here - it's actually closed at the moment for re-stocking but do keep an eye on it for re-opening soon!
This is a lovely bright mid-purple shade with holo glitter, which builds to full opacity in 2-3 coats and gives a slightly rough, textured finish; you can obviously smooth this out with a top coat to your preference! I added a coat of OPI Nail Envy for a glossy finish. This polish really comes into its own in the sun, when the light catches the little particles of holo glitter and they shine all different colours.
What do you think of this polish? Do you own any Tara's Talons polishes, or any other indie polishes? What's your favourite nail polish brand?
