Top to bottom: China Glaze Refresh Mint, Essie Mint Candy Apple, China Glaze For Audrey
There, I said it. I've been thinking it a while. At first, I succombed the the trend, oohing and ahhing over Essie's Mint Candy Apple. Then, in the excitement of China's Up & Away Collection, Refresh Mint was standing out as a fun shade. But somehow, in the transition to swooning over swatches on All Laquered Up and actually wearing them on my fingers, something happened, and it looked like I was wearing colored white-out on my nails. Instead of exciting and different, it looked tacky and childish. And so I'm stopping. No more mint for me. Oh, I swatched China Glaze For Audrey with the other two, but have decided it's more a cool blue, rather than a mint green. I can keep.
For those who still are on the mint green trend, For Audrey is as close to a Tiffany blue as I have found, and not really a mint. Mint Candy Apple is a cool, blue toned mint. I've worn this one before and it was a complete pain to apply - streaky, uneven, urgh. China Glaze Refresh Mint is more of a green-toned mint. Again, not easy to apply.
What about you? Are there any color trends that you have hopped on board before realizing that you absolutely hate them?
