A few months ago, I applied to swatch and review some polishes from TarasTalons through Tara’s blogger application. Tara got in contact with me and asked if I would like to work with her, obviously I couldn’t say no and Tara kindly sent me a couple of polishes to feature on my blog (I’ll get on to them in a minute!) First, a little bit about Tara;

  • TarasTalons opened in April 2013, and is the UK’s longest trading handmade indie polish brand. All of TarasTalons polishes are one offs, limited edition or custom made.
  • Tara recently expanded to ‘TheTaraEmporium’ which is also a lifestyle, beauty and fashion brand, including nail art kits, jewellery, and handmade bath and beauty products.
  • Tara also launched her online magazine, TheTaraEmporium edit, featuring tutorials, reviews, interviews and more.

The two polishes I received from Tara were #datenight, and The Purpletraitor.


The Purpletraitor is a gorgeous ‘blurple’ shimmer, the formula was great, my pictures show three coats with no top coat.




#datenight is a pretty light green shimmer, with silver holo hearts. I applied three coats of the polish first avoiding the hearts, then placed them on after. They did require a little fishing with being larger glitter, but after giving the bottle a good shake it was quite easy to pick them out! My pictures show three coats with one coat of HK Girl.




TarasTalons and TheTaraEmporium can be found here and her etsy shop here

You can also find her on Facebook and twitter, along with Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr and Flickr under the username; thetaraemporium

I was provided these polishes for review and did not receive any payment.
