Essie "Tart Deco"
This past week our church held a Spa Day for the youth girls. The idea was to bring the Spa to the church so the girls could have a great time without spending any money. There were foot scrubs, face masks, and I brought over some nail polish so everyone could paint there fingers and toes! We had a blast even though only one youth showed up! While I was there I decided to re-paint my finger nails too! I decided to rock a fun coral color this week! Also I'm going to Florida at the end of the week and I love wearing Essie's "Tart Deco" at the beach!
"Tart Deco" is this fabulous peachy coral by Essie and it gets pretty even coverage in two coats. I find that after the first coat goes on it looks horribly streaky but after applying a second coat of polish it looks fine. I only have one or two minor streak marks on my nails. The color is really vibrant, but it is definitely a little more orange than I expected. However I really do like this color!
As for chipping, it holds up pretty well. At about day three or four I began to get some minor chipping on the tips of my nails. The chips are fairly tiny and aren't noticeable by anyone but me. And after wearing "Tart Deco" for the rest of the week I can say that the chipping didn't get any worse. However my only complaint is that a couple of my nails have spots where my top layer of nail has split from the rest causing a small dip. Well most nail polishes even out and cover up the dips so they aren't noticeable, but with Essie's "Tart Deco" the dips were very obvious and noticeable, which kind of irked me a bit. But assuming that your nails don't have dips like mine it shouldn't be a problem.
Overall I really really like "Tart Deco" and it is a great summer color! I plan on wearing it again soon!
