Mint is meant to be one of the "it" colours to be wearing this spring/summer, and this trend has made me discover how much I love mint coloured everything! I want a pair of mint jeans...Anyway wearing mint nail polish is a subtle nod to the trend without looking like a pack of Smarties - which is still a good look!
I also own a few other greens apart from mint, and I think that green nails give off a natural, earthy, bohemian vibe.
|L-R OPI Stranger Tides, Revlon Minted, E.L.F Mint Cream|
OPI Stranger Tides - This looks a lot darker in the swatches, it's actually a light nude with a hint of olive green in it which I adore, it also compliments a tan well. As always with OPI, application was smooth, and like most nudes will need around three coats to get full opacity.
Revlon Minted - This was quite a recent purchase because I don't like buying Revlon nail polish at the full price, £6 is a bit too much when I know I can get certain shades a lot cheaper at a pound shop or online. Well, in a discount store I spotted this for £2 - I immediately snatched it up, as the more popular Revlon shades don't tend to be on offer. Used in a NOTD here.
E.L.F Mint Cream - I find E.L.F nail polish to be pretty good, OK it chips quite quickly but for £1.50 what can you expect? The formula is a bit thick but you only need two coats to get it opaque. The colour is a bit darker than Revlon Minted.
