Treasures by Tan Review

Good afternoon everyone! I totally thought I scheduled posts for this weekend but apparently I totally forgot with the long weekend... Americans have tomorrow off for President's Day- which leads me to ask: do you think Michelle Obama gives Barack a card on President's Day? Who makes such cards? Just a thought I had.

Anyway, Tanya of Treasures by Tan was kind enough to give me a blogger discount so I have a couple swatches from her. I swear I posted these already but apparently my mind is totally gone. Up first is Grama Cupcake which is a white base with all sorts of neon and ROUND glitters. The color is inspired by what Tanya's son calls her mother, how cute! I layered two coats over white and had no issues with application or fishing. You can see from the bottle this is PACKED with glitter, and no sinking.

My other pick was Star Light Star Bright Wishin' For a Cure Tonight which is a special polish for Tanya because it's dedicated to her son, Tyler, who has juvenile diabetes. 50% of the proceeds from this polish will go to juvenile diabetes research so if you're on the fence about it once you see it, hopefully that pushes you over the edge to order it!

SLSTBWFACT (what a mouthful haha!) is "different size/shape glitters in turquoise, purple, white, black, iridescent, and of course silver holo “wishing” stars all in a clear base" as Tanya describes it. I layered two coats over OPI DC Cherry Blossom and it was pretty easy to apply. I had to fish a little for the stars but nothing extreme, definitely worth the effort.

Hopefully I inspired you to check out Tanya's shop on Etsy because I was really impressed with her selection! Polishes are $8.50 for a full size except for SLSBWFACT which is $10 to account for the donation included in the cost. She also has a deal to buy 3 and get 1 free!

I'm trying to lay off the crellys because I forget I rarely wear a white based mani. But I love them all the same. And yes, awesome gift AND for yourself (why not both?!)
