Colour In The Spotlight

Colour in the spotlight – Tan My Hide

Name: Tan My Hide

Tan my hide - main

Collection & UK launch date: Urban Cowgirl, 4th August 2015 (singles 29th August 2015)

Description & personal opinion: A light tan with pink tones in a crème consistency and a subtle shimmer. Personally I group it with my pinks. (For pictures see lighting variance.)

Matching nail polish: Yes, Morgan Taylor Tan My Hide launches 1st September 2015

Viscosity: It’s a crème based colour so applies a little more thickly. Simply keep the layers thin and smooth to avoid any wrinkling by warming before application. If your salon is cool you could do this by standing the bottle on a warm wheat bag, placing it in a bowl of warm water or any other warming method you may prefer. I didn’t have any problems.

Application: Good application in 3 coats.

Lighting variance:

I think it’s clear to see why there has been so many differing opinions on what colour this is, but hoping this helps a lot of you out.

Sparkles & Trends:

Top: lots of dots, escargo to Paris, grand jewels, June bride,

Bottom: Vegas nights, am I making you Gelish? Rough round the edges and izzy whizzy.

Longevity: I had no issues with any lifting, chipping or cracking with this polish

Fading: I have read that this colour is a fader, personally I do not think it is. Here are my nails after a week in the 3 different lights and you can make the decision for yourself.

Removal: I did struggle a little with the removal of this colour, so re-wrapped for 5 minutes and it came away fine.

Similar colours: I think this is a new colour for Gelish and a must have. Closest non Gelish match is IBD I’m no damsel.

Artwork: Liquid stones using “holy cow girl” and “plum tuckered out” with nail space glitters.

My verdict: You need this colour, it applies nicely and is unlike any other colour. I love it :)

Next week: Holy cowgirl

Colour in the spotlight plan

Hi everyone.

I will soon be starting my colour in the spotlight series, which will focus on one Gelish colour each week.

You will find the following covered and will hopefully be really useful for a lot of people:

  • colour description
  • application
  • pictures in different lighting so you can see how the colour changes
  • pictures after one week to assess fading
  • colour comparisons
  • and art design/s

I dont have the vastest range of colours so would really appreciate you guys getting involved with what colours you think are similar and if you want to send me a swatch even better. You can even share your favourite art designs using the colour.

I hope you find this blog helpful,  lets help and inspire each other. The first colour will be Tan my hide on Saturday 29th August 2015.
