NOTD: Essie Mint Candy Apple

Monday, March 11, 2013

Afternoon! I'm sorry for the lack of posts for the last few days, the past week has been a big blur. My Dad is currently in Thailand (which I'm extremely jealous about) so I've been here there and everywhere in different houses and it's been a bit difficult to blog! I'm at my Mum's house now though so I have internet and a week to do some post planning which is nice.


I've been really loving Essie's Mint Candy Apple lately and keep reapplying it every time it chips; The colour completely reminds me of Summer! We all know that Essie aren't known for their formula so the lasting power isn't all that great, but hey ho, the colour makes up for that. I did see an almost dupe by Rimmel the other day though so I think I might have to hunt that down. - Please let me know if you know the name of the one I mean!
It's also been snowing all night and day here, so I'm hoping that the more I paint my nails with spring'y colours, the quicker the sun will arrive. It's a long shot.
I hope you're having a great Monday and thank you for sticking with me this week, I think I'm back on track now!

    1. I agree! I definitely recommend looking out for the Rimmel dupe first though as the formula really let's Essie down xx
