Cat Tail Nails First Impressions

 Greetings and Nailutations!

*Press sample*
Picture heavy post.
Today I am sharing a new to me brand - Cat Tail Nails!  As a crazy cat mom of 4 furry four legged felines, Meg had me at Cat!  =^..^=  I was sent 7 polishes in different finishes to swatch and provide my thoughts.

Let's get to the details!
First up is Blue In the Face, a blue-lavender creme.  Formula was so easy to work with, and it self leveled on the nail.  Photos show 2 coats with a glossy finish.

Next is Peachy Keen, a neon peach creme.  Photos do not capture how neon this shade is (my camera is not a fan of neons like I am).  Formula was a little tricky with this one - 1st coat streaky, 2nd coat showed patchiness, on the 3rd coat I was able to get full opacity.  Peachy Keen is shown with a glossy finish.  NOTE: I was informed that the formula has been improved to be less streaky.

Tickled Pink is a bright neon pink.  Formula was easy to work with and photos show 2 coats with a glossy top coat.

Next there is Purple Mountain Majesty - the perfect neon purple.  Formula dried quickly to a satin-matte finish, so I recommend working fast with not too much or too little polish on the brush for an even coat.  Photos show 2 coats with a glossy top coat.

Heirloom is a bright red creme polish that is a one coater.  I used 2 in the photos, but 1 coat would have covered and given me the opacity I need.  

Midnight Tide is a fun polish because it is a thermal.  It is a purple jelly when cold and a blue periwinkle when warm and is filled with colorful flakes and micro flakes.  Photos show 2 coats with a glossy finish.

For Midnight Tide, I also had to add a matte finish to it.

The last polish is Feeorin Fairy, which acts as both a topper, and a polish on it's own.  On it's own in 2 coats, it gives that ethereal look, while as a topper with one coat it casts a shimmer of blue on any color.  I love it over Blue In The Face.

Loves: The formulas for most were easy to work with - Peachy Keen was the only troublesome one.  I also love the name (because I love cats).  I also love that Meg takes feedback, as a customer/swatcher it is nice when I can go to a brand and let them know my thoughts on something and they respond with appreciation.  

Wishes:  Since the name and font used are so large, I could only fit CAT or NAIL or TAIL on it.  Branding is important for small businesses, so I wish the name was in smaller font so it could fit in 1 shot.  AND - this just in, the labels have been updated so new products will have a smaller label!  :)

  1. I adore Blue in the Face, and the fairy topper on it is perfectly lovely!

  2. I absolutely love cats so already I'm interested in the brand. I think Heirloom is my stand out from this sample set but I'm going to go check out their FB and IG now!

  3. I love these colors -- that pink is something I am going to definitely check out.


Thank you for your comment. :)
