TarasTalons Nail Polish Advent Calendar: 'Bauble' Swatch

This year I decided I didn't want a chocolate advent calendar - I never get around to eating the chocolate - and saw that indie polish maker TarasTalons was making her own nail polish advent calendars. I jumped at the chance!  It arrived in mid-October so I had to hide it away in my cupboard to stop me opening all the brightly coloured packages.  You get 24 5ml bottles and a 10ml bottle for Christmas Day.  All the polishes are one-offs or limited editions, which makes them even more special.

So far I've had some beautiful polishes, though I haven't had a chance to try them all out yet - there's a mixture of glitter toppers, glitter cremes and pearlescent ones so far.  Today's polish was the stunning Bauble - a champagne-coloured base with gold micro glitter in it.  It is so pretty and I am absolutely in love with it.  I was considering stamping over it in red but I couldn't bear to cover up its golden beauty! Maybe tomorrow I'll add some stamping to it.  The photos below show two coats of the polish - it has really good coverage and paints very smoothly.  I topped it with a couple of coats of No 7 Stay Perfect topcoat to smooth out the feeling of the glitter.

You can already pre-order your advent calendar for next year from Tara's Etsy shop - it's a £15 deposit (or £10 if you already have the fabric tree) with a £20 balance to pay later.  I am definitely going to put an order in for refilling my tree next year - I have absolutely loved opening my little parcels every day (and it's so much healthier than chocolate!)
