I bought this because I was on a mint craze for awhile. I didn't like the texture, how thin & watery it is. It takes about 3 coats to get it opaque. It did not bubble up on me which is good. It's a very bright pastel mint green color & I didn't think I'd like it that much but when I went out, a younger girl & an older lady at a store complimented me on my nail color!! It really is a pretty shade of mint green, just don't like the watery polishes so much.
Found this at CVS in the clearance bin for $1.24> So glad I didn't pay more. As soon as I opened it an overwhelming bad odor filled the room. Very Stinky!! The color is meh.
I initially bought this colour because I was looking for a nice pastel/creamy mint green colour. I picked this up @ Ulta during a sale for about $3. Initially I hated it, I always got streaks & air bubbles, it was way too watery. I kinda gave up on Revlon nail polishes but I decided to try this color as well as the other colors out again since they were just sitting there. This time around had had better luck because I put a thin even coat on (about 3 coats to be exact) and I let the coats dry well before I applied the next one. I had less streaking and no air bubbles this time, but it is too time consuming and it does get annoying trying to apply this product so that it looks some what good. The colors are gorgeous!! especially this color against my NW 45 skin tone and the price is great(these are the only reasons why I would repurchase) ...it just takes to much effort to apply it that's all.
Minted doesn't apply quite so streaky as Peach Petal, but I found that it took longer to dry and it didn't look "even" texture wise across my entire nail. Sadly the colour wasn't as nice as I hoped it would be on me either, but it will still be used anyway. It's just an average polish I suppose, nothing terrible but not mindblowing either. I won't buy again, I'll look for a polish of better quality and a pastel green shade that suits me better.
The colour is amazing, I absolutely love it. However, it took me at least 3 different attempts my nails to look half decent. The polish needs at least 3 coats to be opaque, and it goes on really streaky. Having to do 3 coats also makes it a nightmare to dry without getting any dints or smudges even with OPI's RapiDRY top coat which usually works wonders.
Definately won't be repurchasing... i think i might go out and buy Mint Candy Apple by Essie, and hope that the extra $ spent on it brings a better quality nail polish.
Just like every1 else, I really wanted a mint green color and finally got my hands on this. HOWEVER, WHAT A LET DOWN! The formula is soo bad. clumpy it looks just clumpy on my nails too. and i tried so hard to paint my nails as neat as possible w/this polish. I wish the formula was so much better bc I really do like the color.
Pros: I absolutely adored the color. It is a wonderful and trendy mint green pastel cream, and I got many compliments for it. With Sally Hansen basecoat and Insta-Dri topcoat, color managed to stay unchipped for over a week without touchup, and I definitely did not baby my hands, so that was impressive staying power.
Cons: Probably one of the worst polish formulas I've ever worked with. It took 3 coats to get it to be opaque. Using thicker coats just made it dent more easily after application, and using thinner coats just made it bumpy and streaky. It was runny, and seeped towards the sides of my nails. Also, it dried really slowly and dented a lot, even with the Insta-Dri topcoat, so prepare yourself to not use your hands and to touch up on your polish when you accidentally mess up your nails after applying. There was some bubbling, and since the formula was so runny and messy, cleanup took a considerable amount of time as well.
Overall: Fun color, but if you don't have the patience to deal with the frustrating formula, there are other mint greens out there for slightly higher price. I would probably purchase another brand of mint green in the future instead of this one just because the formula was too hard to work with.
i dont know why people dont love this
it only takes 2-3 coats to make it opaque i love the colour its perfect all year around and it looks good on short and long nails if your looking for a mint colour and dont want to spend alot this is a great alternative !
I went on a hunt for this, since I was having a difficult time finding Essie's "mint candy apple." Needless to say, after attempting to use it just once, it now lives in the trash can. The formula was clumpy and just not good at all.
Ok so I def agree with everyone that the texture of this polish is terrible! Very watery when you first put it on and if you go over the same spot, it clumps really fast which I don't like. 1st coat looks gross, 2nd coat looks much better. Put it on thick bc it doesn't look as streaky that way. Take your time too bc its a rough polish to work with. This is my first green color ever and I kinda like it! Its a weird diff looking green thats very unique. Looks great with a tan too! Great color for Summer or Spring. Just put it on very neatly and clean up any polish that gets on your skin or else you will look like you painted your nails with green paint! lol
