Tami nail polishes are made in Scotland, by Tami Beauty, available on Etsy and big cartel, and you can see them on facebook. At the moment they only have 3 polishes available, but based on these 3, I certainly hope they broaden their range. Super quick delivery too, I ordered on Monday and they were here on Tuesday!
So, the 3 polishes are Gleneagles Glamour - a pale pink holo packed with holographic micro glitter, Lady of Lomond - a pale teal holo again packed with holographic micro glitter, and Skibo Sunset, a stunning magenta pink holo. They are all utterly beautiful and I will blog each one separately as they all deserve their own post, but for this post I have used all 3 as they are so pretty and they go so well together.
I painted my nails with Gleneagles Glamour, 2 coats to be certain of full coverage but I think for these purpose certainly 1 would have done. I had in my mind to use one of my tartan stamps, but create a multicoloured base for it, so I painted 1 quarter of each nail in Lady of Lomond, and 1 quarter with Skibo Sunset. I did this freehand since I was going to stamp over it and that would mask any wobbly lines.
I used Moyou London Hipster 05 and stamped with A England Lancelot, which is a very dark red. I felt for this particular colour palette, black would be just too harsh.
I am staggered by how successful this was! I love the combination of pinks and green, and I think the stamping works really well, despite being a little shaky in places - well it's a woolly tartan I have here I think :)
The shimmery holo and glitter still sparkle and even in lower levels of light all 3 polishes have that gorgeous depth that good holos do, contrasting beautifully with the dark stamping.
Lots of pics, again and I'm afraid I couldn't resist lots of cosy woolly shots!
