Nails of the Day 3: Essie's Tart Deco

It’s been almost three weeks since my accident and just as long since my last exposure to the warm California sun.  My complexion, which had just started to show the remotest signs of a tan has now returned to it’s pallid late-winter hue.  Major bummer.

Since I’m still not mobile and there’s no point to slapping on a full-face of makeup when my day consists of hobbling between my room, the sofa, and the bathroom between old episodes of Adam-12, I have been trying to give my skin a warmer glow with the help of nail polish.

Enter Tart Deco ($8.00), one of Essie’s cult shades, a warm orangey-coral that screams summertime.  This warm shade seems to give my cool-toned skin a glow that is almost golden-- almost.

If, like me, you’re a long way from the sun or San Tropez, give Tart Deco a try-- it’s a good way to fake it before you can (fake and) bake it!
