NOTD: Essie Mint Candy Apple

Today's post will be short and sweet. I decided to be adventurous this weekend and selected OPI Mint Candy Apple for my manicure. I used three coats, and topped it with OPI Start to Finish. The photo was taken in full sun.

Bottom Line: The formula is gloopy, thick and uneven. You NEED three coats to get a nice even manicure. The colour is great though - a creamy, pastel greeny light blue that looks great for spring and summer.

Till next time,


Update- 03/3/2012: I checked my other Essie polishes and this one seems to be the only formula that was difficult to work with. As I said in the comments section, this bottle of polish is now quite old so I probably need to add a little of Seche Restore to thin it out. Hope that helps! :P


  1. This color looks really pretty!!! But you said you would need three coats to make it look good... so would you suggest this nail polish to anyone? Or did you not like it?

    1. Hi Jenny,

      I would still recommend it because the colour is so unique!! My bottle is also quite old, that is probably why the consistency was off. In my experience, Essie polishes are usually quite thin and easy to work with! :)


I love comments and I'm always happy to help with your queries so don't hesitate to drop me a note <3
