After a very long hiatus, I am back! I have been extremely busy these past two weeks because it is nearing the end of the semester for me! I only have about three more weeks and then I am off for the summer! There are so many things that I have planned for this summer, and blogging more often is definitely a part of my plans. My family is also taking a little vacation down to Mexico, and I would love to share pictures with you!
Since lent is over, I have taken it upon myself to buy a few nail polishes that I have been “lemming” for (is that the phrase?). The first one I picked up is Essie’s “Tart Deco”, which I had mentioned in a previous post. It was the last one in my local drug store, so I took that as a sign that it was meant to be.
Once again, excuse the cuticles. I’ve had a really hard time getting rid of my icky winter hands. The cold really did some damage! Do you have any recommendations for lotions/creams?
I absolutely adore this color. It is perfect for spring, and it is bright and eye-catching without being neon. It is the perfect mixture of pink and orange – a coral color! I loved it on it’s own, but after a couple of days I decided to put some Shine of the Times over it, and Tart Deco really pulls out the orange and yellow flakies in the polish. I think I will definitely be using this color quite often. The only problem I had with this polish is that it was quite opaque. It took three coats to get full coverage, which isn’t usual for other Essie polishes I have tried. I wish the Essie brushes were bigger too…
On another note, I saw a Deborah Lippmann polish that I really wanted, but I found it’s dupe – Revlon Whimsical! However, apparently this polish is difficult to find as well. I tried to make a franken to match it…that’s a different post for another day.
How have you all been doing? What is on your nails right now? Have you tried Tart Deco? If not, I’d highly recommend it!
