Search for the Perfect Coral Polish

Filed under: , , ,

As summer wears on, I’m craving mani’s and pedi’s in sunny, tropical colors.  Nothing’s screams summer more than a coral-colored nail, and I’m on the hunt for the perfect coral nail polish.  Here’s my first contender: Essie’s Tart Deco.

Indoors and in the bottle, this looked to be a good bet.  Tart Deco is a creme formula that applied like buttah.  The first coat was a bit streaky, but a second fat coat smoothed it right out.  I topped it all off with a swipe of Seche Vite.  Although I like this color, it’s a bit too orangey on me to be a true “coral” IMO.  More like an orange sherbet.   Mmmm, orange sherbet.  I hear that damn ice cream truck song 2,346 times each summer but where is the ice cream man when I actually need him?

Excuse my dry skin!  Gotta work on that moisturizing…

Looks like my search for the perfect coral continues, but Tart Deco will remain in my go-to summer stash.
