A211551 - Tarina Tarantino Supernova Metallic Nail Lacquer Trio
Supernova is super!
Wow, the colors of these polishes are fantastic. The starchild (pewter) color is my favorite; it's so wearable, and even the more conservative among us can feel comfortable with it because it is neutral, although not in any way boring. The empire (turquoise) color is lovely but considerably more green than it appears on my computer screen, actually more of a teal. The midnight blue color is also much darker than it appears on screen--a quite dark blue like the night sky, not a cobalt blue as it looks on screen. These colors really do go on in one coat, and you're ready to walk out the door in just a couple of minutes with no smearing. In addition, they have a subtle metallic sheen to them that elevates them above the many colored polishes that are everywhere right now. These really look different and much, much prettier. My only complaint--and thus the four stars--is that after only wearing the midnight polish for a couple of hours, I took it off to try on another color and my nails and cuticles were already quite stained. I could not get the stain off despite using a lot of nail polish remover. This means that if you want to wear these, you either have to never again go out the door in bare nails or you have to take the time to put on a primer underneath that is specifically made to protect your nails from staining. In my experience, those primers take awhile to dry, and that pretty much is a kick in the head to the idea of putting on just one coat and dashing out the door. I don't usually wear nail polish, and I would prefer to have bare nails most of the time and just wear these colors occasionally, but once you put them on you're stuck wearing polish all the time or else waiting with embarrassing stains on your nails and cuticles until the stain wears off. I still think I will keep these, especially since I've looked everywhere for a color just like starchild. However, I would like to see Tarina bring out a nail polish remover that takes out the stain or a quick protective undercoat that will not allow it to reach the nail, hopefully free of toxic additives. That issue aside, however, the colors are really stunning, and I just enjoy wearing them. If you're going to try a non-traditional color of polish, start with these. These are the prettiest I've seen, and they don't have that chalky look that so many other brands have. I would love to see Tarina make another set in traditional colors too, though--a pale pink, a sweet rosebud pink, and a French white--all with the same "supernova" sheen that these have. That would be a set you could wear every day or wear occasionally without the staining, and that sheen adds such great dimension that they would be five rungs above any other polishes you have.
Best nail polish I ever tried
I love the shades and the polish really lasts a long time. Please add some more colors, I would buy them!
Love these - great colors & staying power!! Plus, one coat will actually do the trick - a lot of polishes make this claim but few actually live up to it - THESE DO!!! Plus, these colors are stunning!!!
First of all, I am not one to write reviews....BUT this time I just had to! I just want everyone to know that Tarina's nail lacquers STAY ON!!!! That's important to me, because I don't wear acrylic nails (colors stay on acrylic nails) and her brand is awesome for us girls with real nails! In fact, loved them so much, that I'm gonna order another set, not to mention that the colors are beautiful and trendy!!! Tarina, make some more colors!!!!!
I absolutely love this nail lacquer. It goes on easily and stays on for a week. I am 60 years old and I love the "groovy" colors. They catch everyone's attention. I wish there were more colors to choose from. Right now I am wearing the Starchild and is absolutely a neutral that looks good with everything. You won't be disappointed if you want something easy to use, long lasting and exciting.
NOT FOR ME
I love trendy nail polish colors, however, these are not so special, and ridiculously expensive once you add in the shipping charges. The blues were not that different from one another, and although I used a base coat, it took a long time, and a lot of polish remover to get the stain off of my nails and cuticles. I returned them, as they are no different from drug store nail polish, which are a heck of a lot less expensive.
Miss Tarina I would like to thank you for making this old gal a little more spicy! I found the polish to be fabulous & WISH FOR MORE! Sincerely Auntie Mia
old fuddy duddy
i was trained at a catholic nursing school many years ago and we never wore polish.
now at 70 years old i'm loving these! they wear well and really look electric.
This polish is beautiful in color and wear. The colors are so vivid...you will not be disappointed if you are into metallic nail polish. The polish does cover in one heavy coat and dries quickly. I believe I will be gifted this collection for the holidays as my sisters are drooling over my nails!! Tarina, please add more colors.
Love the colors
Love these colors, especially the Starchild, please bring in some more metallics colors, and they are long lasting and strong. The color stands out and everyone notices!!
I loved the blue!!!!!!! However, the other two colors were not for me, they all went back. So it wasn't a good value for me that why I gave it a four, if I would have love all the colors I would have given it a five...
I would love to see them sold seperately, at a good value or offer more sets!!! Nice shiny product, one coat and you are done! High recommended for people who want some fun and look stunning!!
This is GOOD Stuff!!!!
Besides liking the colorsThe Quality is worth the price of admission, I really like the fact that one coat does it for a week and the
sheen is great. I wear the dove silver on my fingers and the blue on my toes. I gifted the
turquoise and now wish I hadn't. Tarina, I like your style and savvy. I also like your hair!
Keep it coming, girl.
