Carpe Noctem Cosmetics Taupey Tips

Slowly attacking my "untried" bin! Huzzah for forward progress! My test subject today is my very first Carpe Noctem polish: Taupey Tips! You know how I love a good nude(ish) polish.

I had this polish in my Etsy cart for weeks...maybe months. I can impulse-buy the hell out of random polish at a drugstore, but for some reason I am way more careful when it comes to online shopping. Is that weird? It feels like it is. Once I finished with my Doom Christmas shopping, I decided to buy myself a little gift.

Taupey Tips is a cool, milky taupe jelly-ish polish with a scattered holo. I think it might be a linear now, which is kinda neat/kinda kicking myself for my timing. I needed three thin coats to get the coverage shown, but I think this polish needs to be semi-translucent. You'd never know that my nails are still orange from a before-Xmas mishap from looking at these pictures. Three coats gives a glass like finish: hinting at a nail line, but still covering your sins.

Tl;dr I think Carpe Noctem has a customer for life. This polish was great. The shipping/turnaround was decent, considering the time of year. What color would you recommend I try next? Or do you know of another nude-ish indie I need to own?


  1. Is this their medium sized bottle? I've had a few of the little mermaid polishes on my wishlist for ages but this bottle shape is too cute! Definitely makes me want to buy the 3 I want next!

  2. You made it look great, but too sheer for me.

    1. its not as sheer as you think. My nails are actually BRIGHT orange under there, and this covers it but still looks like a sheer.

  3. Lovely! I recommend you add the Reborn Balm to your next Carpe Noctem order. It's FAB!
