Essie: Mint Candy Apple

17 Mar


There had been a lot of talk about this one, so natuarrly i got it… i don’t love it… i love the colour, but the brush on the mini bottle was terrible! It was tiiiny! So it got streaky and i needed 4 coats.. thats a bit much, even for me! When i need five strokes just to cover my nail, i’m not pleased! I’m guessing the bigger bottles are better, so I’m not writing of Essie completely here!

On to the colour! It’s a green mint (i wore green on st.pattys without even knowing it!), and it’s more blue-ish than Re-Fresh mint from China Glaze! It is a cream colour, and except for the brush-issue, i like it!

This is a bit hastily applied, so it’s not that even, but i really love this polish! It’s a quite sheer red, and i had to use four coats to make it completely opaque. I bought the holidays box of mini polishes, and i really love them all 😀

This is truly a true red. it is however a bit more on the blue side than on the orange/yellow side.

China Glaze Sugar High with Essie Matte about you

I wanted to see how it would look matte. I really like it, but i think i was a bit to hasty, and the streaky-ness is beacuse i didn’t wait for the pink polish to dry completely! This picture was taken at the start of my day, and i will post a picture of how it looks after work!

I also have Orlys Matte Top, and it doesn’t stay on all day, and the polish gets shiny after a few hours!
