Mint Skittles

I hope you don't mind me calling all of these mint... =)

Mint color is going to be especially popular once the spring comes. I know that many of you are wondering which one to buy. Let's face it, not all of you are like me and have to have every polish in the shade you like. I iz guilty!

Let's take a look. From L to R: China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, Essie Mint Candy Apple, Collection 2000 Button Moon and China Glaze For Audrey.


I think that the only true mint color here is ChG Re-Fresh Mint. Others are too blue-ish. I did have some application problems with it this time. *wonders why*

You know what I think? I think you need them all. I mean, look at them! These are completely different colors! Button Moon has the most blue, For Audrey is a classic and it's also way darker than the others. And Re-Fresh Mint & Mint Candy Apple are nothing alike.

Verdict: Let's say you already have For Audrey. If you really can't decide between the first three... I'd go with Essie Mint Candy Apple. And Re-Fresh Mint. But Button Moon is really cheap, so why not. Sorry for not helping you. *hangs head in shame*

Thanks for looking!

  3. I just picked up ChG Groovy Green and it's actually a really yellow based mint. I like blue based mints but some of them go way to blue. I love Re-freshmint, I need to try mine out!

    I need the first 3, I think!
    OK so if FA looked really bad on me would the other 3 look bad too?

  6. Not necessarily. As you can see, For Audrey looks quite different than the other 3.

  11. Re-Fresh Mint is my favorite! :D But obviously if i had the money i'd buy them all! lol Well, maybe not all of them because i don't have all the colours i want right now. When i have them i'll start getting similar colours.

  16. You know, I'm sooo hesitant as to whether I can wear colors like that or not! Some very nice people say I can wear anything, but pastels... Not so sure. But if I would try one, it'd be For Audrey. I think. :D

  17. Hahahaha I love this post. It made me laugh so hard. I'm guilty of buying tons of colors that are so similar only we polish addicts can tell the difference. However, of all of those, Re-fresh Mint is I think the *must have*. Its so stunning

  18. Oh, you can wear whatever you like. I personally think that mint green would look great on you!

  19. Yeah, I fell for it! Ordered FA yesterday... xD

  20. I've never heard of Button Moon brand. I have a tiny Mint Candy Apple. It was sold out on TransDesign in the regular size. It must be around somewhere. Maybe it's back in the normal size now. I definitely have to buy Re-Freshmint. Thanks for the comparisons.
