(099) Essie - Mint Candy Apple


I don't know how I haven't blogged about this, it has been my most frequently worn shade since pastels hit SS12. I think because I wear it so often I assumed I had written about it. I bought this last Summer in Miami and I absolutely adore this colour. I featured it in my April favourites video which you guys can watch HERE but it then occurred to me that this beauty had never been on my blog. 


Mint Candy Apple is a shade I am sure most of you nail-polish-aholic's out there have already laid eyes on. I knew it was love at first site it's the perfect mint, pastel green and essential to anyones nail polish collection. I love how it contrasts with my skin tone. I love how opaque this colour is and you only really need two coats for an even application and I finished with a top coat of Seche Vite.


By the way how great is it that Essie is now available on the high street in Boots and Superdrug. I am so excited as they have such amazing shades for my International readers Essie is a brand that wasn't so readily available in the UK. I am so glad that's changed as it stops me from lugging loads back from America. 

I love this nail polish and I guess this blogpost has been long overdue - This baby is available HERE

Have any of you tried this cult colour? What are your favourites from Essie! 

Lots of Love
