Nail Polish Review: Essie Mint Candy Apple

If you’ve read one of my recent trends articles, you will know that I think mint green is the color of the month. It’s fresh, spring-like, and just plain fun. One of the easiest ways to use the color is by picking up Essie’s Mint Candy Apple nail polish. It’s a great shade and works perfectly to perk your nails right up.

The polish itself has a bit of the consistency of Wite-Out, which doesn’t sound that appealing, but actually makes for painting on a good solid coat. It has a little chalkier texture than some of the other Essie shades but it goes on thick. Typically for me, I only need one color to coat, but use two to perfect any lines or tiny spaces of the nail I missed the first time.

For a self-manicure, my nails usually last without being chipped more than a week, which is pretty good since I am on a computer all day long. It looks good on all skin tones and also paired with other neutrals like pale pink, silver, or gold (which is what I used).

At $8 a bottle, it’s a good investment because you’ll be wearing the color all spring and summer long. Plus, this particular shade seems to dry pretty quickly as compared to others and it doesn’t smudge. I am not devoted to any one brand of nail polish but for this trendy color, I say Essie is the way to go.
