Manicure Monday: Essie Mint Candy Apple


Hey everyone! Today's Manicure Monday is a polish that is one of my favorites of all time: Essie Mint Candy Apple. You remember back when the minty green-blue polish trend first started a few years ago? To me, Mint Candy Apple was the ultimate pastel mint creme polish on the market. I have tried what seems like a million mints, but even now this one is my favorite and I'll show you why below.



Essie is one of those companies that I know I can go to for colors that I end up falling in love with since they are so classic yet perfected in their category (Example: perfect greige Essie Chinchilly). Mint Candy Apple is one of the absolute best pastels out there and it seems to be very flattering on a wide variety of skintones. It falls very much in the middle of green and blue and has a a great brightening effect on the hands.


Here I used a base of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat with 3 coats of Essie Mint Candy Apple and Seche Vite to add the glassy finish. Its cute, clean look is why I chose to wear it for the first Mani Monday after moving this past weekend, as the perfect pick-me-up. It's a fresh start! :)


You can pick this one up for around $8 at Nordstrom, Macy's, Zappos, or at Target where I purchased mine. This one is definitely a nail staple everyone should try!

Readers, are you a fan of mint nails? What is your favorite mint polish? Let me know in the comments!

  11. Ohh thst's such a pretty color, it kind of matches the other mint color nail polish you got from korea that's shaped like an ice cream.

    I really wish I could get that, that matches this new sweater and headband I have!

  18. It's so interesting how different it looks on different people. On you it leans more blue and on me the green is more pronounced. Gorgeous color though! I just had to get this and a few other essie colors after seeing them on your blog
