Essie Mint Candy Apple

Mint Candy Apple is a popular Essie nail polish. It is a stunning, one of a kind color that is young & fresh. It's hard to describe- it's kind of like a light mint/blue color. Nothing in my stash even comes close to it!


The only disappointing part is the application- it's one of those polishes you buy for the color and not because it delivers a flawless application. It requires a lot of patience; you need to apply very thin coats & wait until they almost completely dry before applying the subsequent ones to avoid cuticle drag. I would also recommend a thick top coat (something like Sèche Vite) to level everything out. But I promise the results are worth it ! I get so many compliments on this color and I am sure you would too ;)
I used Essie Protein Base Coat & Essie Good to God Top Coat

  4. Maybe it's not so easy to apply it on your nails but is a gorgeous color!

  5. When this first came out, I immediately nabbed it - and haven't worn it since, mainly because it's a bit finicky to apply. That being said, I had forgotten how fresh this shade is....you remind me that it's time to dust it off and give it another whirl! Tasha, this really, really looks good against your fair skin!
