NOTD- Back to Mint Green


I hope you are having a lovely Sunday and enjoyed an extra hour in bed :)
For me it isn't the clock telling me when to get up- it is my baby boy, so I never get extra sleep :) haha

When I was organizing my nail polishes (again) I couldn't resist painting my nails with the gorgeous Mint Candy Apple by ESSIE. It is such a beautiful shade!  
The only problem is the chipping, it chips after one day, unless it is used on fake nails (lasts for a week). 
I added a bit of sparkle with Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream and I loooooove it :)

Do you go back to summer colours sometimes in Autumn and Winter?

  2. Yes I don't care the time of year...Dark red for autumn, mint for summer...I'll wear what I like when I like. And I love this colour, very pretty. How is the lipman shade alone...does it need to be over something?

  7. That's a gorgeous combination! I'm in the same boat, with my wee boy yelling at me to get up at 6am this morning (it's usually 7:30 or 8 he totally robbed me of at least half an hour!) lol xo
