Tahitian Sun polishes adds sparkle to your fingers and toes!

Two sparkling summertime metallics from Tahitian Sun. Metallic Silver and Metallic Gold. Those bottles!!!!

Okay, I’m a sucker for flashy polish bottles and Tahitian Sun custom polishes really hit home with my beach lovin’ heart with their sandy bottle tops with real starfish embellishments. Wow!

Tahitian Sun went full on with creativity and the beachy tropical theme reflects as well with the bottles and caps. I love the sandy lids with a real mini starfish on top!

And now for the fun part. Here are two of their sparkling metallics. Metallic Silver and Gold. And a luscious berry shade, Raspberry.

Tahitian Sun Metallic Silver is a silver glitter metallic Nail Polish in a super opaque metallic finish, 0.5 fl oz / 15ml bottle with flat brush and 2 inch sand-like cap topped with a mini starfish. 1-2 coats of this sparkler!
Tahitian Sun Metallic Gold is a sparkly gold Nail Polish in a glitter metallic finish, 0.5 fl oz / 15ml bottle with flat brush and 2 inch sand-like cap topped with a mini starfish. I used 3 smooth coats here.
Gorgeous Tahitian Sun Raspberry! 2-3 coats, here is two. I also added a gel-like top coat. There is a slightly textured glossy finish due to the ton of holo within. A good heavy duty topcoat will smooth that right out.
Tahitian Sun Raspberry is a heavy holo raspberry red in a jelly-like raspberry base.

I can’t wait to try more. Besides their willingness and ability to create custom colors and formulas, there are a ton of options from the menu. Here are the details on how to get yours! They take Amazon, AMEX, Discover, MC, VISA and Paypal.

Ingredients info:

Toxic Free Ingredients (5-FREE)
All of our products contain “No Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalat, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor”. We take pride in being a toxic 5-Free alternative.
Toluene. The least harmful of the toxic trio, toluene is a volatile organic compound (VOC) that is found in paints, thinners, and inks. Despite giving nail polish its ability to dry quickly, toluene is still a harmful chemical. The ingredient is also classified by the California Department Of Public Health Occupational Health Branch California Safe Cosmetics Program as cancer-causing.
Dibutyl phthalate (DBP). DBP is a carcinogen found in paints, plastics, and pesticides that stops nail polish from being brittle. It is classified by the European Union as a suspected endocrine disrupter and Health Canada has linked it to liver and kidney failure in children.
Formaldehyde. Similar to DBP, formaldehyde is also classified as a known human carcinogen by The International Agency for Research on Cancer. It allows nail polish to harden and chip less, but can lead to fatigue, skin irritation, and immune dysfunction in users.
Formaldehyde resin. While similar to formaldehyde, no link between cancer and formaldehyde resin has been found. The resin helps strengthen nails, but is a skin allergen and immune system toxicant that can cause dermatitis.
Camphor. Camphor is created by distilling the bark of a camphor tree. Although natural, inhaling or having large exposure to camphor can be toxic, create irritation, and cause seizures in children.

Manis and lacquers

Jarabe Tapatio from the April SquareHue Dance collection box is here!

I may be a whiter than white girl, but who can’t say “Si” to this gorgeous trio of polishes? SquareHue brings us the April 2017 box, Jarabe Tapatio, and the colors, formulas and finishes are as expected, amazing.

I couldn’t help myself with the April Dance collection, Jarabe Tapatio! These vibrant shades just scream, “artify me!” The red micro shimmer is La China. The purple micro shimmer is Ole and the cool green high gloss creme is Charro. Together they remind me of a pretty Mexican dance frock.

Charro, the green glossy creme is what I would call a true apple green. La China is a super shiny micro shimmer true red and Ole is a perfect medium cool purple/lavender. All perfect formulas, all 1-2 coats.

I was so excited to open the April collection box yesterday from SquareHue, Jarabe Tapatio. Sunny, happy shades from top and clockwise: La China, Ole and Charro.

Did you know that Jarabe Tapatio is better known as “The Mexican Hat Dance”? Tapatio is a nickname for the people of Guadalajara. A fun energizing dance typically a man and a woman dressed is bright garb, they dance to happy rythms and bring a smile to all onlookers.
