Essie - Mint Candy Apple

I got a package from my reader Missy yesterday. One of the polishes in the package was Essie Mint Candy Apple. I liked this one from the moment I first saw it but I never thought I'd own it. Of course, I had to put it on immediately. =) It gave me some troubles with the application that's why I layered 3 coats although it's quite opaque. I had to cover up the bald spots. Maybe I just suck at applying it. Who knows.

This is such a wonderful color. It doesn't look so good on me, but I don't care. I love it and I'll wear it! Thank you so much, Missy! :*


Crappy makes polishes look kind of matte ... or at least satiny. That's why I decided to rearrange the lighting a little bit. Above is a photo with indirect light and below with direct light. Which one is better?



Thanks for looking!

    The direct lighting looks better.
    I found a thing on making a light box with just a large clear storage box, with white posterboard layed inside and then the clamp on lights and I'm trying it out today, I'll let you know if it works any better.
    I love MCA on you and it seems that all mint greens have application issues.

  2. I agree with Evil Angel, it looks better under direct light. I like this colour, but it would probably look totally wrong on me.

  4. I totally love this!!! I have it on my watchlist for a longer time now but always say to myself, I gotta sell something first before I buy :))

  5. I had a lot of trouble with the application of my Mint Candy Apple too. I don't think it's us. It was just way too thick. I'm going to have to thin it next time I use it.

  6. Mint Candy Apple is great! I had it on last week and got several compliments, though it's not my fave mint.

  7. OK, then I'll use direct light for my photos. I'd love to see your lightbox experiments on your blog. =)
    I thought I was too clumsy to apply it, but I found out on MUA that some other girls also have application issues. But I forgive... it's such a neat color.

  10. I know what you're talking about. But I find it so hard to let go of my polishes. That's why I only buy new. I don't sell them.

  11. Well, some of the girls say it only needs 2 coats. Good for them but I still need 3. =) Glad to hear it isn't just me though. =)

  14. Ha Ha, with me or the MCA?!!

    Seriously, I'm so glad you like it. I read that you like creams and figured this one might be hard for you to acquire.

  17. Your application looks great! I had the same problem, needed 3 coats to cover bald spots. I think the direct lighting photos look better/more accurate.

  21. =) Hvala, Lyra. Ampak ja. Včasih si kakega tako namalam, da ni preveč dobro za pogledat...

  22. I've had this one for a while and I like it alot except it could be a little more green. My bottle was pretty good and only took two coats. It looks kinda weird on me, but that's never stopped me from wearing polishes before! I think it looks great on you.

  23. Hi, there! I have to say that this polish looks very gorgeous on you! Hope you don't mind a guy like myself commenting on women wearing nail polishes, as I happen to like viewing them & to also refer polishes like this to my female friends.

    I hope that you have a Happy New Year!

  24. Thanks, Arrianne! Keep wearing your MCA! =)

  25. Hey, Garland! Why would I mind? Men have their taste just as women do. =) So, thank you!

    Happy New Year to you too!
