Mint Candy Christmas

So... many of you know I won Mint Candy Apple from a giveaway at Naive Nails. Here are the results.

There was just something about this polish I loved. I think a lot of it had to do with the cream composition. I think I love creams because a lot of the nail polishes I had when I was young were not creams, and I find them fascinating.

I found that I loved the color, but it really reminded me of Easter, or Wint O Green Tic Tacs. The BF hated this one. He said it looked like green Pepto Bismol, so remind me not to wear a pink creme polish in his presence.

MCA applied like a dream, smooth controlled and ample coverage. The first time I put it on, I attempted to make it more Christmasy with Ulta Gold Digger, and the results were nice but not durable. I only have this one pic, so sorry for the messy nails, but it all gooped off soon after this.

So, I redid it in the morning with just two coats of MCA alone, and loved it throughout the day, I even opted for two days of wear, even though I have tons of other polishes yearning to be played with.

On top of that, I made a trip to Sally Beauty for my first two China Glazes, Ruby Pumps and Emerald Sparkle for Christmas, and it is well worth it. More on those tomorrow....

For now, here's one final shot (low light) of how I wore MCA for the past two days, very cute with my Winter white Anne Klein coat!
