My love for Essie has been ongoing for many months now. I seem to veer over to the Essie counter before even looking at any other brands as the colours and finishes are so extensive that you really are spoilt for choice. One Essie polish that I didn’t have, yet has been on my wishlist for quite sometime is Mint Candy Apple. I have seen this colour floating around the Bloggosphere for so long, and have been lusting after it for ages so I’m not sure why it has taken me up until now to get my paws on it. A few weeks ago, I saw Essie tweet about their new duo packs, which are great value for money at £12.99, especially when a single colour is £7.99. Essie Twinklebelle contains a full size Mint Candy Apple and a full size Luxe sparkle top coat in Sparkle On Top. I picked mine up from Boots for £12.99, .
Mint Candy Apple is such a pretty Spring/Summer colour, that fits into the pastel trend perfectly. The mint green is a true minty colour and the polish doesn’t look chalky when dry. Two coats are needed for full opacity and application with the pro wide brush is a doddle. Free from streaks and an average drying time, Mint Candy Apple is my new favourite for the upcoming warm weather season.
Sparkle on Top is a clear polish with shredded glitter flecks suspended within the varnish. The glitter is silver and green in colour, depending on how the light catches it. Sparkle On Top can be worn alone or over the top of Mint Candy Apple for a pretty accent nail. It is very subtle when worn over the top of Mint Candy Apple and it just gives that added sparkle. It is more show stopping when worn alone as the green glitter flecks do blend in with the Mint Candy Apple base coat.
Mint Candy Apple and Sparkle On Top lasted a good three days before I noticed any chips or lifting. The quality of Essie polishes is so good, and Essie Twinklebelle is no exception.
