Essie Mint Candy Apple & CND Gold Sparkle

Hi loves! How are you today? Hope you are doing fine!

With the Winter season going on at full strength I am craving Spring. Also, I am craving Spring colors on my nails! Don't worry, the dark colors still grace my tips but every now and then a soft one comes by and jumps in!

So, I was browsing my drawers and stumbled upon Essie Mint Candy Apple. I hadn't worn it in a long time so I figured why not? I used 2 coats (very carefully applied), the formula is rather thin and runny so it isn't as streaky as most pastels but you have to be careful about pooling the cuticles. After it dried a bit, I applied 1 thin coat of CND Gold Sparkle to give it some more oomph.

The golden sparkle was really pretty on top of the mint! Do you like this combo? And what is your favorite mint polish?
