Nail Tisane Reviews & Swatches

I have a new to the blog brand to share, Nail Tisane! I think the name for this brand is very clever! Tisane is a catch-all term for any non-caffeinated beverage made from the infusion or decoction of herbs, spices, or other plant material in water. So through the creator's love of nail polish and tea, Nail Tisane was born! She offers over 40 different variety of colors and I have 5 to share with you today. :)
Press Sample 

Allie A Saves the Day contains smaller silver glitters with red shards and various holo hexes in a deep brown jelly base. All nails are 3 coats with top coat.
 Unfortunately, I need to start off talking about the formula of this polish first. :/ It was very thick and hard to work with. I added about a dropper full of thinner to make it workable, but even after that still found it to be rather thick. It is a pretty color and I like how the silver glitters stand out again the base color, which shows up sometimes black but does appear to just be a dark chocolate color, and I had no problems getting out any of the shards or larger glitters. :)
Evening Gown is described as a rich purple with shimmering
iridescent blue-green sparkles. Shown is 3 coats with top coat.
 Evening Gown is a very unique color because it gives off a slight shift in certain lighting from a light purple to a deep purple. The added iridescent glitters really give a great pop to the color too! Formula was a little on the thick side, but workable.
Lavender Frosting is a sheer lavender scattered holo with a blue sheen. These photos show 4 coats with top coat.
This polish is on the sheer side and I'm sure would look awesome over a solid base color, but I really love it on it's own. The formula was easy to work with, even at 4 coats. My camera didn't like having to try to capture shimmer and holo >_<, so these pictures really don't do it justice! It's a gorgeous color and very butterfly wing-esque. ;)  
Lion's Mane has a gold metallic with a holographic finish. All nails are 2 coats with top coat. 
 Another polish my camera just couldn't handle! :P I can't say I have any metallic holos in my collection, but I love this one! It also helps I'm a Leo, so it's right up my alley. ;) Formula was perfect and almost a one coater!
Ultros Glam contains deep purple and sliver holographic glitters in a deep blue-green shimmery base. Here is 2 coats with top coat.
Eep this polish has everything going on and is gorgeous! It has a green shift in some lights and overall has a glowing look! The purple glitters stand out well against the base color and make this polish to die for! It was on the thicker side and I did need to add some thinner to help use it, to me it was worth it because I love this polish! :)
Purchase these polishes and more through Nail Tisane's Etsy storefront. Minis are $5 and full size polishes are $12. Make sure to follow Nail Tisane on Tumblr!
