China Glaze Tart-y For the Party

*I want to first apologize for my measly 2 posts last week. My recent move, a damaged car, and having a bad cold while trying to establish a new routine put me on the outs. The combination wasn't easy for me. I don't like to complain because these things are minuscule compared to many other peoples life struggles, but for a creature of habit like me it was a lot. I'm back to business now! The worst of my cold is over and my car is fixed! I know, I don't have to apologize to you all, but I feel bad about it for my sake. I didn't feel like myself for the past few weeks, and I love blog, so it made me sad to be so out of it!

Happy Memorial Day!

I'm a big fan of lavender polishes. They're definitely one of my favorite colors to sport in the spring in summer months. When I spotted China Glaze Tart-y for the Party in the Avant Garden collection, I knew I had to have it.

Tart-y for the Party
Tart-y for the Party is a medium lavender creme.

Color: Beautiful lavender shade. Before I purchased this, I looked at The Polishaholic's comparison post to make sure this wasn't dupey. This one definitely seems to stand out differently than other lavender colors I have, it's brighter and richer.

Formula: The formula on this was good. This was on the thin side, but applied nicely in 3 coats. Formula wasn't anything fantastic, but was far from bad. Decent.

Price: I purchased this at Sally Beauty Supply for somewhere around $6-$7.

Overall: I love this color. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Paint Splatters
Happy Monday!
