Essie Comparison, Haute as Hello, Tart Deco & Van D'Go

Hey Ladies,

I wanted to show you a little comparison of the 3 Essie nail polishes that has been requested, two of them are in the same family & one is noticeably different but all really lovely colours.



The Swatches


As you can see Tart Deco & Haute As Hello are quite similar, Tart Deco is more tangerine and Haute As Hello is a bright Pinkish Coral. Both gorgeous colours, do you need them both? Yes if you care about nail polish which i clearly do! but if you're a normal human then you could probably live with just one of the two.
As for Van D'Go it is a very light peachy pink, I seriously think i got a dud bottle because mine isn't like any online swatches i've seen & applies like a nightmare compared to the other two above! Not impressed, I may have to order another ... just in case!

Remember I have an Essie giveaway here! get entering & good luck

Thanks for reading & hopefully this has been useful to someone & I hope you've had a lovely weekend! I've had a cracking one! Full of sleep, House (the tv show), boyfriend, naps & nothingness! Heaven on a plate!

  8. I definitely need to get my hands on some Essie nail varnishes. Those colours are cute, do you need more than one layer for the pinks though?

  9. Thanks for the comments everyone!

    @cherry pullinger yes essie is awful to get opaque most need 3 thin layers! i will be doing a vid about essie soon with the polishes i think are the best & worst formulations! but any creamy colours are so hard to get even & opaque, the bright colours are easy, i do have a couple that are opaque in one coat!! xx

  13. I spent ages trying to decide between Essie orangey-coraly shades! I ended up not getting Tart Deco, but now have Haute as Hello and Cantaloupe, which is a slightly more orange, less bright I would say, but gorgeous. If you like these colours you would love that one!x

  14. I have Cute as a Button, so not really sure if I should get Haute as Hello... what you reckon? I want Vermillionaire too as well, lol!

    Btw, as far as Van D Go goes, it's not you, it's a little bastard to apply and photograph! Bad Essie at its worst!
