MOTD- Hot n’ Cold Mani With Essie “Tart Deco” and dELIA’s “Blue-Mint”

Hi everyone! Today I have an awesome mani that I did to show you. When you have so many colors, sometimes it’s hard to pick just one to use on my nails at a time! So, being as indecisive as I am, I couldn’t pick between colors! So I picked two of my favorites- a hot coral and a cool mint, and paired them together to get the best of both worlds- hot and cold! I used the blue, dELIA’s “Blue-Mint”, as an accent nail on my pointer finger and pinky, and used Essie “Tart Deco” on the rest.

dELIA’s “Blue-Mint” is a bit sheer, and requires 3-4 coats to be fully opaque. But the end result is so beautiful, I’m willing to put in the extra effort to apply it. It’s pretty quick drying, so that’s a plus. dELIA’s polishes can range anywhere from about $3.50-$6, depending on the kind of polish, and what kind of sales the store is having, and can only be found at dELIA’s stores. Essie “Tart Deco” was a little thick, but not unworkable, and was opaque in two coats. It ranges from about $7-$9 retail, although this bottle was given to me as payment for babysitting! Pictures below are indoors, with Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in “Flawless” as a base and top coat. 3 coats of “Blue-Mint” and 2 coats of “Tart Deco”
