Essie Mint Candy Apple and Butter London Dodgy Barnett

Hi everyone!!!

It's the first Monday of 2015 and I have a fun mani to share with you for Monday Blues!  I still can't believe it's 2015, can you?


For this mani, I used Essie Mint Candy Apple as my base, a polish that was on my wish list for a long time.  I finally got it from Amazon a month ago.

Like most pastels, the formula was streaky and required care upon application.  Mint Candy Apple was opaque in two coats though.  Here I used two coats with Out the Door Top Coat.

I then used Stuck on Love Nail Shields from Love Angeline to create the design below.  I added a coat of Dodgy Barnett, a gorgeous silver/gray holo, then removed the shields.  Finally I topped it off with Out the Door top coat.

While this mani took way longer that I expected it to, I was really happy with how it turned out.  The design is such a fun one and I really love Mint Candy Apple and Dodgy Barnett together.

What do you guys think of this mani?  Do you have any of these polishes?

  1. Mint Candy Apple has always been on my wishlist but I never got it because everyone complains about the formula. I guess it's better because I have a lot of minty polishes in my stash anyway. It looks gorgeous on you though! And those shields have such a cool design! Really awesome mani!!
