Essie's Mint Candy Apple is a polish that has confused me since it's release. I bought it instantly as I'm attracted to that soft-but-bright kind of aqua colour. My sheets are a light Mint Candy Apple colour! I remember trying it that winter and it was horrific on me. I swapped it away. Spring came and I got curious, picked it up again - hideous. Swapped it away. This pattern continued a few times. (Seriously. It was not smart.) Finally I decided just to keep the bloomin' thing. I felt the moment was right and busted it out again a few days ago...lo and behold I LOVE IT. WTH.
Something must have snapped in me, or the weather is right for it, or some strange voodoo is at work... It doesn't seem to make my hands look red anymore (less so in reality than in this picture actually!) and it's the perfect shade of mint green to pop against my 'brightpastel' summer wardrobe.
I'm still confused by this polish. I'm half convinced I will hate it again the next time I try it, but for now, we're in love...
