Tart Decco vs Flip Flop Fantasy

Hey y'all! Hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was filled with good food, great company and a few 'firsts.' We had dinner at Lou Malnati's with a group of guys from J's work. One of the guys brought his girlfriend so thankfully I was not the only girl. I really hate that. On Saturday, I went wedding dress shopping with a friend from church who recently got engaged. She has about a month to plan her wedding so we were on a time crunch, but we found the dress she will walk down the aisle in! I've never gotten the pleasure of helping shop for another girl's wedding dress. Pretty great 'first.' It brought back so many memories about our wedding. Great weekend overall. 
So can we talk for a second? I cannot get into this orange/coral nail polish trend. I'm trying, but my skin tone is just not working with it. My sister got me on this search with Essie's Van D'Go which is absolutely GORGEOUS. I am at Ulta looking through the what feels like millions of finger nail polishes and find these two: Essie's Tart Deco and China Glaze's Flip Flop Fantasy. They looked identical in the container.
Price point at Ulta: $8.00/$7.99

Here's the deal. I chose not to purchase either of them for a few reasons:
1. As previously mentioned, I'm going to have to be IN LOVE to buy an orange polish. I was not.
2. Tart Deco was not complimentary to my skin tone, but the color pay off and sheen was good.
3. Flip Flop Fantasy was NEON with no shine. Not impressed.
Moral of the story: Looks can be deceiving. They looked the same in the bottle, but they were completely opposite.
I'm still in the market for an orange nail polish. Just sayin'.
Be back soon.
