Essie Mint Candy Apple

Essie Mint Candy Apple
While I like to make sure I'm constantly trying out new nail shades, there comes a time when you need to go back to an old favourite and today that is Essie's Mint Candy Apple.  The hype may have died down a little but the love is still going strong!  Here's what I think of it.

Mint Candy Apple is basically a mint green shade, perfect for this time of the year when pastels are always in.  I usually find the formula with light colours of nail polish tend to be hit or miss but this applied really evenly on the nails.  Possibly slightly thicker than other Essie shades but still really easy to apply.

I've never had much of an issue with staying power using Essie shades and this shade isn't any different.  I found that I got a good 4-5 days wear before any sign of chipping occurred.  Even then it was very minimal around the edges and I probably could have worn it for longer.

As for the shade, I think you could probably find it elsewhere for a little cheaper (Think Barry M's Sugar Apple) but as the previous hype suggested, it's still as good as everyone said it was.  I couldn't think of a more perfect Spring shade.
