Hello lovelies. How are you all? It was back to work for me today, but to be quite honest I was a bit bored of sitting at home!
Monday means Pick A Polish and this week I will be showing you Tara's Talons - Cherry Blossom. I got this from one of Tara's spring collections last year and I have used it a few times since, which is quite rare for me!

Cherry Blossom is a light pink crelly with a mix of white, gold and bronze glitters. My swatch shows 3 coats with topcoat. The formula on this is good, it applies very smoothly and the distribution of the glitters is excellent. The only slight issue is that it dries a bit gritty, so it needs a nice thick topcoat to smooth it out. This is a lovely clean and wearable colour, but still with a bit of interest from the glitters.
I decided to take inspiration from the name of this polish and do some cherry blossom inspired nail art. Over Cherry Blossom I painted my branches using W7 - Black. I then applied my dots using Barry M - Miami, OPI - Sparrow Me The Drama, Sinful Colors - Snow Me White and OPI - Love.Angel.Music.Baby. I know gold isn't traditionally a cherry blossom colour, but I just wanted some gold in it!
I really loved both this polish and this nail art... I think they are both really pretty! You've gotta love a bit of pink now and again!
Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
See you next time.
