Sinful Colors - Mint Apple (Mother/Daughter)

Hi everyone!!

Today I'm sharing Sinful Colors Mint Apple, but with a little twist.  Maria from Nails Made Simple had a great idea to do a special post, "Mother to Daughter" since today is Mother's Day in Mexico.  You can see her post here.

I was so excited about her idea because my mom NEVER does her nails and it was a good way to get her involved with my love for polish.  I'm so glad she agreed ;0). Now keep in mind, I knew that I was never going to get her to do nail art, so I asked what color she wanted to do.  Green is her favorite color and when I showed her a few, she chose Mint Apple.  Great choice!

Mint Apple is a mint green shimmer crelly that I got from Nory (thanks Nory!!).  The first coat was a bit streaky, but it was fully opaque and even with the second coat.  I love the beautiful shimmer on this polish.  I used Essie All in One Base and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

Look!! We have matching nails, heehee ;0)

I'm so glad I got a chance to do this with my mom.  It's nothing fancy, but I'm just happy I got to do her nails.  This color is so her!

Do you have Mint Apple?  Is your mom into nail polish as much as you are?

Please visit Maria, LoesIvana and Iris's blogs to see what they did with their mothers.

  2. Aww, that's so fun! I like Mint Apple a lot. I have it, but had major chipping issues after using SV topcoat on it. I feel like SV only works well with certain polishes. I tried a different topcoat and the polish lasted much longer. I love how you featured your mom in this post! My mom is into polish (just about) as much as I am. We talk colors and collections...she had Essie's Navigate Her before me, haha. Mint Apple looks great on both of you! :)

    1. I think you might be right about the SV. Sometimes it chips so quickly.

  12. I love that you got your mom involved in this! My mom and I have VERY different tastes in polish so I can't ever imagine her in any of the "wilder" colors I dabble with. This shimmer mint is so fantastic on both of your skin tones, it's just magnificent.

    My mother likes nail polish but not like me. She's happy having 10 bottles with relatively tame colours :P

  17. Beautiful colour on your beautiful hands, my mu has started letting me paint her nails, only now and again though. Like her I am a religious toenail painter! Hopefully now I do my fingers she might let me do hers more often.

  19. This is a gorgeous color! Really makes me feel sorry we can't get Sinful over here. This post was such a fun idea! My mom usually paints her nails with neutral colors, but I've seen her wear some blue from time to time. It must be in the DNA!:))
