Today I have a relatively new indie brand to show you. Danii from Nail Tisane sent me a few bottles of her polishes, and they are beautiful. She defines Nail Tisane as “a catch-all term for any nail polish made and sold by yours truly from a variety of pigments, glitters, and other materials.”
First up is Evening Gown. I was most excited to try this one, and it did not disappoint. Evening Gown is a purple polish with sparse holo glitter, and a pink sheen when the light hits it. This is 3 coats plus top coat, and it had the best formula of the polishes I tried.
Next is The Horseman’s Head. This is a light green, milky jelly with grey and lime green glitter. This was a sheer polish, and it’s shown with 3 coats over OPI Alpine Snow, plus top coat. The formula was a bit thick, but workable.
Fabala Fae is a black jelly with different sizes of green glitter and holo squares. Shown is 4 coats plus top coat.
Totally a Real Tattoo is a green jelly holo with black shreds. This is 3 coats plus top coat. The formula on this one was pretty thick, so it was a bit difficult to work with. Despite that, it’s a very pretty polish.
Finally, Photobombing Lycanthrope. This is a black/brown jelly base with gold circle glitter and different sizes of copper glitter. It’s a very interesting polish, but the formula was the most difficult to work with of the polishes I tried. The first 2 coats were streaky, I ended up doing 4 coats. You can still see a bit of dragging by the cuticles in the pictures. The glitter spread nicely, though.
You can find Nail Tisane on Etsy. She sells full size (.45 oz) bottles for $12, and mini (.13 oz) bottles for $5. She is also offering an exclusive code to Cosmetical readers, just enter the code MONSTERLACQUER at checkout for 5% off your purchase through December 31st, 2013!
