I just can't get enough of... Mint Green Nail Polish


When I was organising my nail polish collection, I realised that I have many variations of a pastel green colour aka 'mint green'. I absolutely love this shade on my nails and my favourite and most used one is still Essie's Mint Candy Apple. I adore the way it looks against every skin tone. I wear it when I am pale or tanned and it is perfect. It is the only nail colour I used up and repurchased!

 I am not sure if pastel green is 'in fashion' this Autumn, but I am not planning to stop wearing it. If there is one colour I will reapply again and again, it has to be mint green. I swatched all the colours to show you the difference between them. Some shades are more army green than pastel, like NYC Mint Macaroon and Ciate Apples & Custard, but they look equally gorgeous on my nails. I also included Essie's Maximillian Strasse Her, because it is a mixture of grey and green and I have been wearing it a lot this month.

Let me know what is your favourite mint green/pastel green shade and what colour is a true mint green in  your opinion. I think that 'mint green' became a very popular description of everything with a hint of pastel green.

My favourite shades (L-R): Essie Mint Candy Apple, MUA Pistachio Ice Cream, KIKO Jade Green and China Glaze For Audrey

  11. I am loving mint green nails too at the moment, green is the last colour I would ever imagine to look good on nails but it really does. I am thinking more emerald shades for autumn/winter too.
