So... last week, I took a simple prompt and made it into something a little more complicated. This week, I pulled another color prompt, and decided to stick with simple. It's been quite the week and I needed a little simplicity! So, thank goodness for Fridays, weekends off and MINT nails...
1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
3 Coats SinfulColors Mint Apple
1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat
1 Coat Seche Vite
Okay, okay, so it's not the mintiest of the mints out there, but it does have mint in the name! That counts right? Suuuuuure, I have some actual unswatched minty mint-greens, but I was in the mood to wear this one.
I'm not sure when or where I picked up Mint Apple, but it's part of SinfulColors core collection, so it's pretty easy to find. It's a minty, dusty mid-toned seafoamy/minty green. My pics aren't quite color accurate. The shade leans a lot more towards green than blue in real life. I tried capturing it correctly on my iPhone too, and it couldn't get it right either.
After using so many other polishes in the past few days, it was nice to come back to SinfulColors. To be honest, I prefer the brush, and I could go on and on about the formula. It's consistent and always easy to work with, one of the many reasons I'm such a huge fan!
Then there's that SinfulColors shimmer that I just adore. It's in so many of my favorite polishes by them, and Mint Apple is no exception. The shimmer in this one is a really pretty silvery/gold color, and adds a lot of shine!
I haven't decided if I'm going to let this one for another day, stamp over it, or create something new for tomorrow. After the way this week has gone, I could easily just take a nice, hot, relaxing bath and drink some chamomile tea and drift off to sleep... ooooooor just go directly to the sleep part. O.o Happy Friday to you and have a great weekend!!!
