Nails of the Week: Essie Tart Deco

This is an example of a nails disaster. I decided to do my nails before work one day last week, and picked out Essie Tart Deco from the recently launched Art of Spring collection. This looked like such a pretty coral pink. I had picked it up in the mini form (because come on, who ever finishes a nail varnish?), and this was the first time I had used a mini Essie before.

Man oh man, this was work. The polish was thick, the brush tiny, and it took three tedious and difficult coats to get a reasonably even coverage. So can you imagine my horror when I used China Glaze's Quick Dry Topcoat on top and it turns from a pretty pink coral to neon orange?! I could have screamed!! Instead I had to go to work with garish nails.

Has mixing brands topcoats ever had this impact on you?

Never happened to me.

It's interesting that it changed color, sorry about that.:D

I do agree with you, no one ever finishes a nail varnish!:D

Have a lovely week!:D

That's strange. It's never happened to me.

I've never used up a nail polish either, I have far too many! :)

That happened to me too with Tart Deco and Van d' Go using Seche Vite. :( And the color wasn't nice...

Oh I totally thought that when I get around to purchasing Seche Vite it wouldn't happen! Oh well. Glad to see it wasn't just me :)
