Monday’s Manicure

DSCN1290
Essie has a new holiday collection and I’ve had the colors for several weeks but have only swatched one color thus far. This is Essie’s Mint Candy Apple, part of the 2009 Winter Collection.

You know I had to try this color out first because it’s green. The other colors are a soft baby pink (Rock Candy) and a very vibrant red (Lollipop). I thought this mint green was an unexpected twist on the traditional deep forest greens you see during the holiday season.

This color reminds me a lot of OPI’s Get in Lime but it’s a bit brassy and brighter than that green. It’s also a part of the trend for jade nail polish that I see being very popular for spring. For me, this color was just okay. I’m not 100% in love but I’ll definitely where it again.

So are you down with jade polish? What are you thoughts?
