Essie Tart Deco

Tart deco definitely did not live up to my expectations. In the bottle, the color is a coral with peach undertones, but once applied it is much more orange. I did not apply a top coat, but when you do it's an even more muted neon orange. The formula is thick, so I found it was difficult to apply it in sheer coats. If you are looking for a bright coral shade, this is definitely for you. I, however, prefer Essie Van d' go, which is a pastel pink with a hint of coral. It also turns a little more orange with a top coat. Usually, essie polishes don't do that, so I'm not sure why tart deco keeps turning a bit more orange. Nonetheless, this will probably be a nail polish that I will be wearing a lot during the summer because I have to admit, tart deco looks so pretty in outdoor lighting!

  4. ooooh my goodness - that is the perfect nail polish color. I've never tried essie before, I usually use OPI, but Essie has been coming out with a lot of really fun colors that OPI doesn't have - I might have to try it out!
