Tried & True: Essie - Tart Deco & Sinful Colors - 24/7

Happy Hump Day!  It's the middle of the week and I thought it would be the perfect time to share some great products with you before you hit the malls and go on any shopping trips this weekend.  Today I thought I'd give you a product review of two of my newest and favorite nail polishes, Essie - Tart Deco and Sinful Color - 24/7.  

First up, 24/7 by Sinful Colors.  

The Pros:  The number one thing I love about this polish is that it dries so quickly.  It's hard to find polishes that dry quickly and since I am usually on the go I need that kind of polish in my life.  I also love that it looks pretty with just one coat.  Some polishes have that "barely there" look with only one coat, but if applied evenly this one is fine with one coat.  Last, but not least, I LOVE the bright color.  This polish dries to a matte finish and looks neon/barbie pink.  I love it!

The Cons:  Even though I listed this as a pro, it's also a con - it dries quickly.  This can be a pro if you didn't apply correctly the first time because you have little to no time to correct a mistake.  Also, this polish chips within a day if no top coat is used.

The Verdict:  I love it and I say it's must buy. Sure it chips easily, but it dries quick so you can touch it up quickly if you need to.  Plus, if you just add a top coat you won't have that problem. The best part is it's only $2 dollars!

Next up, Tart Deco by Essie.

The Pros:  The number one thing I love about this polish is the color!  Coral is the color of the season, and besides that it's one of my favorite colors.  I feel like this is the perfect shade of Coral and can even look like a sherbet Orange. This polish dries in about 2 minutes which is not bad compared to some other polishes I've tried. It doesn't chip very easily. The first time I tried this the polish lasted without chipping for about 3 days with no top coat.

The Cons:  This polish requires two coats.  One coat is not enough and I know for some this could be a con.  Also, this polish is about $8 and I am sure there are similar colors out there for lower prices.

The Verdict:  I actually really love this polish and I say it's a must buy! I will be on a search for a similar and lower priced polish though, because I know that $8 for polish can be a lot at times. When I find it I'll be sure to report back to you!

Happy Shopping!

  1. PINK, PINK, PINK!! I love how it turns out in the pictures. I'm also a busy girl so I would need a polish that dries up quickly. The chipping wouldn't be a problem since I have top coats polish and it's a great deal. Very helpful review Kelly :)

  5. Hi Kelley...This was very helpful. I just recently heard about Essie and when I saw the price! Yikes! I could never pay that for one bottle of polish, especially since I don't spend enough time painting my nails. The other is great too...I'm certain I saw their brand on sale this week, buy 1 get 1 free...I'll have to check...I'm really "vamping" up my spring and summer wardrobe and would love some new colors on my nails...thanks for sharing...And for the lovely comment on my new were my inspiration to make the change, so THANK YOU! I'm still working on my blog look...we'll see.

    Always good to see you stop by.


  6. both colors are really pretty! Especially the first one. I've been doing a lot of blues and lavenders but I think I'm switching it back to pink the next time! Great reviews!
