Summer introduces this perfect albeit old school Essie colour in the form of mint candy apple -- a delight to see on anyone's nails this season. I don't know about you but my favourite nail polish colours involve the words dark and moody in the form of a few burgundy or deep wine colours. But you've got to embrace the summer shades that are bought forth with a few pastel concoctions. After picking up this (expensive!) Essie polish from the local Farmers stand, I've been smitten with both the colour and the formula.
The colour is a sweet but cool hybrid of mint pastel and baby blue, looking a little different whatever light you're in. A thin liquid, it's easy to coat over your nails in a couple of swipes, and bears full coverage once two or three coats are applied. It's the best formula I've used from a nail polish brand, and with my first Essie purchase they'll probably come a lot more with the sacrifice of my bank account. Please, could someone make these polishes two dollars each so I can buy at least fifty?
