TarasTalons is one year old today! This is how I'm celebrating.......

Hi! I'm so excited! TarasTalons is one year old today! I'm so excited and happy! :D

Thank you everyone who has ordered, blogged about me and supported me, I can’t begin to explain how much it has meant and does mean to me! Just over two years ago I had just taken voluntary redundancy from a job I hated and didn't really know what I wanted to do with my life. Shortly after I started my journey into creating an indie nail polish brand with the money left over from my redundancy pay and after a year of research, practise, late nights, tears, overspending budgeting  and sleepless nights I opened TarasTalons! and now a year on, I have the best job I've ever had and am grateful to everyone who has helped me to make my dream a reality and supported me and my business!

To celebrate;

I have released a birthday collection of nail polishes!

All orders of TarasTalons polish between 00:01 on the 1st and 23:59 on the 7th of April will receive a free handmade TarasTalons nail polish keyring (can also be removed from the keyring and worn as a pendant or on a bracelet) (while stocks last).

Also during the seven days starting the 1st of April (00:01 on the 1st of April to 23:59 on the 7th of April) take a photo of your favourite TarasTalons mani, your TarasTalons stash or favourite bottle of TarasTalons polish etc and send it to me/tag me in it across any of my social media with the hash tag #tarastalonsisone or email them to me at tara@tarastalons.co.uk with the subject TarasTalons is one and Shaun (or Mr TarasTalons as he is now known across my social media!) will pick his favourite TWELVE (one for each month you have all supported me and my business) on the 8th of April.

The winning 12 will have the picture they tagged me in/sent me featured in the second issue of my online magazine (TheTaraEmporium Edit) and will also win a one off Talon Treasure Trove!

This is the description of the Talon Treasure Troves: 'Your Talon Treasure Trove will be a gorgeous luxury that you can look forward to all month! Your Treasure Trove will come in a beautiful box and will be worth a minimum of £30.00. Treasure Troves could include (from TarasTalons) full size nail polishes, mini nail polishes or duos, nail art pens and nail art supplies. These could be selected from products in my Etsy shop, my website, my stockists or created just for the Talon Treasure Troves. All products from TarasTalons will be one off or limited edition, however other brands (both indie and mainstream) could appear in the Treasure Troves from time to time which may not be one off or limited edition!

You can see a review of my Talon Treasure Troves here'.
