Another Essie mani - Tart Deco

As you know, being preggers I'm all about making sure that my nail polish is free from toluene, formaldehyde, camphor and DBP. In fact I did a recent clear out of my nail polish collection and threw away everything that was deemed unsafe. Which of course meant it's time to stock up on some new nail polishes that are free from the 4 nasties!

Essie is one of those safe brands so when I saw Myer had a 30% off sale on all Essie products I picked up Mint Candy Apple and this one, Tart Deco.

This is such a perfect summer colour. It goes on creamy and opaque in 2 coats, although I prefer to apply 3 coats as for some reason the nails on my ring fingers always end up streaky. Weird.

I usually top with China Glaze No Chip Top Coat (another one free from nasty chemicals) I get almost a week's wear out of my nail polishes, and this is no exception.

I have a lot of jewellery that goes well with this nail polish, (I'm a coral junkie, what can I say), and I love how it goes so well with my Colette Accessories ring.

Do you have this nail polish? What are you rocking on your nails today?

  2. I hear butter London are free from 3 nasties, but the trout pout one I have on has worn horribly, so I'd beware which ones you buy!

    1. I haven't been too impressed with them either. I got BL Yummy Mummy free with a mag and the pigmentation is weak and streaky. Not good enough, considering they're $24 at a pharmacy near me.

  5. I don't have this colour but it's going straight on my list of make up/beauty bits that I want!!! It's such a nice shade for summer, which I'm already excited for despite the current freezing temperature here.

    I have mint candy apple though and I love it! Essie do these candy pastel cremes so well xxxx

    1. Oh really? What a shame. There are some gorgeous pastels out there. Frosted shades don't look good on me... they make my fingers look fat and pudgy! LOL.
