Monday Nail | Essie Mint Candy Apple

To this party I truly am late. Mint Candy Apple is one of those shades that have reached complete cult status for one reason or the other. I hadn't gotten it simply because I felt I had a whole lot of mints in my collection. But who am I kidding, I can always have more mint polishes. That was also the reasoning behind purchasing this particular Essie shade.

The fun thing about it, is that it's mint, but then it's not really mint. And it's different. It's kinda pastel but it's also kinda bright. What I'm saying is that I can get the fascination around it. It's definitely a girly shade, one of those that you can wear if you're a girly girl, but also if you're a cool girl and I'd go as far as to say you can probably pull it off at the office also. 
Not to mention, do you see how awesome it looks with gold?

Of all the Essie formulations I've tried (for they have changed them a lot), this one is one of the favorites. Great coverage, almost not streaky at all on the first coat and just the right amount of fluid.This one and Barry M's Greenberry  have "Summer polishes" written all over them!
I'm also noticing that these two angles are not too  flattering on my  almost paw looking hand but I'm kinda liking playing with backgrounds. I might trade the paw for sequins more often.
