NOTD - Essie Mint Candy Apple

My god its hot at the moment - I'm struggling to write posts as all I want to do is be outside enjoying the sun!

Anywhoo - I delved into my collection and realised that I had not ever used this polish, even though I've had it in the collection for over a year.

Mint Candy Apple was the first Essie polish that I lusted after - I blame Elle and Blair for this! I never bought it due to the price, however when the diffusion line came out I made it mine.

Mint Candy Apple is a very white toned green/blue - its a very fresh & bright colour that pops on the nails.

Of all the Essie's I've tried, this one has an awful formula. It took 2 coats to be opaque which isn't the problem, its the fact that a day later there was far too much tip wear for not doing anything. 

I've repainted this a couple of times and each time it still does not last more than two days before looking tired. For £7.99 I would have expected much better than this - I don't know if its the diffusion lines formula but oh well - it lasts well on my toes!

What do you think? Have you tried Mint Candy Apple? xx


  1. I've been eyeing this colour for ages now, it's gorgeous :) x

  2. I love this polish!i always wear base coat and top coat with it and it lasts me a whole week even if I'm doing manual labour at work!hehe!:)

  3. I found this with Turquoise & Caicos but it covers better over an opaque white base. Still doesnt last as long as other Essie polishes!

  4. That's such a shame, you'd expect better wear from something so expensive - however it is just suchhhh a gorgeous colour :D
