Pretty & Polished Tart

Hey everybunny! Today I have some pictures of this pretty little thing by Pretty & Polished called Tart. I wore this a couple weeks ago (thus the square nails) and same as when I wore Jawbreaker by P&P I basically never wanted to take it off. I am SO into pastel sheer-ish bases with glitter that give this dreamy jelly-sandwich look... I can't even tell you guys how much I love these kinds of polishes, and Chelsea keeps making awesome ones.

Tart is filled with tons of different glitter - big white and pink hexes, smaller white, pink and blue hexes, tiny glitters, and this tiiiiny blue shimmer that I didn't even know was there until I put it on my nails because I've never seen it come across in photos (I obviously couldn't capture it either unfortunately).

I did 2 coats of Tart over one coat of Sally Hansen - Lacey Lilac, which is an exact match color-wise for Tart. I assume, like Jawbreaker, that this would have been opaque on its own in 3 coats but I wanted to conserve since my broke self can only afford the mini bottles :)

Just LOOK at that GLITTER. That PURPLE. Hnnng.

In that pic it looks as though the polish is a little see-through, but the picture is a liar. It's only because my hand was backlit. ALSO, apologies for the tiny chip on my pointer finger that you probably didn't notice until I said that sentence just now. I can barely even see it in these pics but figured I may as well acknowledge my failure as a nail blogger in case anyone sees it and thinks that I was trying to pretend it's not there. I took these pics several days after the actual execution of this mani, so uh... there's the explanation I guess? Also I am a bad nail blogger. BAD WHITNEY.

You can buy Pretty & Polished at her Etsy shop. She's not open right now but she has openings fairly frequently which is super cool and the only reason I've managed to snag 9 of her polishes so far!

Happy hump day! See y'all tomorrow (probably)!

  1. Jawbreaker is the very first indie polish I ever bought- such a great color!
