I just had a mani and pedi today and chose Tart Deco since it looked like the perfect soft peachy cream that I was hoping for. Unfortunately, and as other reviewers have mentioned, this shade is very deceptive in the bottle. I am now staring at my bright orange nails and I'm not happy with it at all. I would have had her remove it and start over but I was in a rush since I'm leaving for vacation in the morning. Too bad because it was the perfect color... in the bottle.
nice spring nail polish...very poppy coral and this is in trend and my skin tone is caramel...looks great on me!
Like a lot of other people have also said, this is a very disappointing nail polish. I've been looking for quite some time for a cream or frost pale orange sorbet kind of colour, and I bought this online thinking "yes! I've found it!", but I was very disappointed when I actually put it on. It's a more bright, neon and tacky kind of colour to what I expected. The formula seemed dodgy for my bottle - goopy and never dried properly. No one else seems to have had this issue though, so perhaps it was just my bottle..?
Would not recommend this to anyone pale or people who don't like brights/neons. Would probably look great on a tanned person though.
I'm quite fond of Tart Deco! It's a lot more orange IRL than what it looks like in the bottle or online. In the bottle it's much more salmon-colored. It's on the thicker side of consistency and quite streaky on the first coat but evens out within 2-3 coats. I try to do medium-thick coats because I found that thin coats apply a lot streakier and don't even out as nicely as medium-thick coats. It's one of my go-to summer colors and I'm looking forward to this year's summer and Tart Deco as my mani and pedi!
This colour is HORRIBLE! I am so disappointed as I really like Essie colours normally. It is nothing like it is described or as it looks in the bottle. In real life it is thick and very garish. Makes me mistrust Essie a bit which is a shame as I adore Chinchilly.
Very disappointed in this color. I bought this because I thought the coral peachiness of it was really pretty for the summer. Little did I know that it would apply like a nightmare, so gloppy, thick, and streaky. Most Essie's I have tried apply beautifully, so what a let down.
I bought this polish yesterday and agree with a lot of other reviewers have been saying. The colour looks perfect in the bottle, soft and peachy, however as soon as it dries on your nails, top coat or not, it's truly a neon orange! It's too bright for my liking, and adding to that disappointment, it was really difficult to apply. Not recommended unless you're very patient and are looking for an orange nail colour.
I don't really understand the bad reviews for this product. I bought it yesterday without having read anything about it, and haven't found any of the described problems.
The formula is admittedly a ittle hard to master, I find that "laying on thick" really helps with the complaints of streakiness. Two thicker than usual coats really helps. The good thing about Essie is that the streaks actually even themselves out upon drying, weird but true! Just give the bottle a really good shake before application.
The colour I found, unlike all the other reviews of this- didn't change for me. It stayed the true sorbet salmon peach- exactly like the bottle (I used a Natio topcoat)
Overall, the colour's very unique and pretty, the consistency and jelly like tone very lovely:) The only downside is that its AU$18.95 from Myer so am reluctant to purchase again.
Ok..I have JUST applied this nail polish and felt the need to review it!
First off, the color is very fun..so summery..orangey coral,almost neon like. I don't think I've seen this color in other brands. Yes, maybe similar coral/orange is very in but still.. not THIS color.
Now to negative..I assumed that a nail polish with a price tag of $8 would be amazing to apply but NO. It is super streaky..my first layer was horrible! like applying kiddie milky nail polish ..my second layer was little bit better..it did cover first super streaky layer ..and not I am on to my THIRD layer! No nail polish needs to be applied in THREE payers, and especially not better ones. And it looks OK..Fun color, bad cinsistency.
I bought 3 Essie nail polishes today ,and if this is how they are I will not repuechase any more. The other 2 I got are Haute as Hello (similar color, lighter) and Splash of Grenadine (fun bubble gum lilac). I have to be honest..I've had much chepaer polishes that applied much muh better!
Verdict: Unless you LOVE the color the way I loved mine..try some other brands.
I was expecting a beautiful pinky coral when I looked at this in the bottle and am glad I purchased this in the spring collection because it comes out as bright orange! Not what I was expecting at all. The main reason I bought the collection was for this colour but I do think it looks good on my tan skin I was looking for something a bit more wearable than neon orange. The consistency of the polish I found quite thick and streaky as well and I expected more considering how expensive these polishes are in Australia. I won't be getting any more of this brand if this is the consistency.
