Mint is one of my favourite colours (hence the blog colour scheme) and Mint Candy Apple is such a beautiful shade. It's definitely my most worn nail polish (it's what I was wearing when I got engaged!). I do really like Essie polishes, I think they have a great shade range, they apply really well and the bottles are really cute but I'm not sure they live up to the hype that the brand is afforded, particularly in the blogging world. In terms of wear they don't last longer or chip less than my more cheaper polishes (like Bourjois 1 Seconde), so the quality doesn't quite feel as premium as the price.
I picked this up on a whim one day whilst queueing at the tills in New Look and it turned out to be one of my favourite ever nail polishes. It has such a beautiful bronze glitter through it that makes it the ideal top coat. In fact I ended up wearing it over a light pink on my wedding day (see photo below).
Lilac is another one of my favourite colours (I'm all about pastels!) so I looooove this Essie shade. I often wear this underneath this Maybelline Color Show top coat and it's such a beautiful combo.
Now I just need to stop biting my nails so I can paint them more often....
