Essie Mint Candy Apple


A few weeks ago I was this close to buying MUA's Pistachio Ice Cream when I decided to go for the highly coveted Mint Candy Apple from Essie instead. Some may call me an idiot - why buy a polish for £7.99 when there is a very similar shade for £1.00 you may ask? Well, as talked about as MUA's new nail polishes are, for just £1.00 I thought it may be lacking in quality and I'm incredibly fussy when it comes to application, so Mint Candy Apple it was.

The colour itself is a mint green-blue, and brighter than I had expected - I'll be sporting this throughout the Spring and Summer months as it's great for the warmer weather that is hopefully ahead. I really cannot fault the formula, either. It's pretty much opaque in two coats which suits me perfectly and although drying time is slightly longer than I'd like, a few fast dry drops and I'm good to go.

If Mint Candy Apple is in your collection I'd love to know what you think!

  1. Quality over quantity! And what a beautiful colour! It's perfect for spring and summer. It's also a colour that combines easily with other colours and outfits. You can wear it soft, sweet, edgy and romantic! Thanks a lot, now I want the colour too haha!
