Nails of the Day: Essie Mint Candy Apple

I saw this color in the clearance section at ulta for $4. I LOVEEEE cream polishes, especially blues, so I needed it!



Cream polishes are also my favorite to add decals to, so I added a kitty & crossbones sticker from a fing’rs nail decal set.


I love the color of this polish, but I really don’t understand the name. I mean, mint candy apple sounds disgusting, right?

    I can’t believe you found it on clearance, it was a really popular color and it was sold out everywhere where I live. It looks great against your skintone though, and I agree that the name is really strange!

    Ew, mint candy apple? What were they thinking!?! Frosted Granny Smith maybe, but mint and apples should steer clear of each other. LOVE the colour and the decal is rad!

  3. Jeffree Star Fan says

    i bought this too at Ulta on sale and i love it. OMG actually Mint Candy Apples are sooo good

  11. Elissa says

    haha omg. i did the same thing that you did. i was at ulta browsing the clearance section and when i saw this i haddd to have it. it was gorgeous. one of my favorite colors.

    i think mine was only 2 though..hmm don’t remember.

    but do you think this is a good dupe for for audrey by china glaze? i’ve been debating on whether or not to get it, but then now i have this. is it still worth it to get?

    thank you!

  12. Ashley says

    I was at Ulta and I was torn between that color and China Glaze’s Refresh-Mint. I went with the CG one and it’s actually about the same color. So for those that couldn’t find the essie color, the CG color is pretty close. Hope that helps ^_^

    I adore Essie Polishes I love the fact that they dry so fast! Even though I love all my China Glaze polishes to pieces I wish they dried a bit faster :/
    I really wish Essie would expand a bit on the color wheel though especially with more vibrant colors.

  14. Stephanie says

    it looks like mac’s peppermint patti! can you maybe do a comparison if you have it?

  15. Laura says

    this nail polish looks very interesting :) i’ve never seen a colour like this!

  16. Anna says

    Wow, that is a lovely color :) I have to say that I love your tutorials and stuff on youtube :) And I LOVE your style :) You have kinda the same style as me :) And oh, in your northern light tutorial I saw that you had this adorable skull with headphones earring :) I immediately wanted it ;) I collect earrings :)

    Oh well, just wanted to say you are a great inspiration and keep up with the good work :)
