I absolutely love this nail polish!! Honestly, I mainly bought it because I'm a huge POTC fan and out of the collection, I really loved the colour (and the name) of this one. It's nothing like anything I already have and it's gorgeous...I literally can't stop staring at my nails. It went on smoothly and is completely opaque in 2 coats - and so far I haven't had any chipping. I strongly recommend this!! I love how it's a really pretty green but it's not too bright or turquoise-y, because I have enough colours like that.

Update (May 2015): If I could go back in time and purchase this product again, I would buy every last drop of it I could find. This colour is amazing, and the nail polish is great quality. I still have some left, but I use it sparingly. I have never found a dupe for this colour, but I'm still trying. Just thinking about it makes me cry mermaid's tears...

Love this colour!!! Saw it among all the OPI Pirates of the Carribean Collection and picked it for my french tips...just lovely and so right for spring!!! I also bought Steady as She Rose but haven't tried it on yet...will do a review with a pic when I do.

I love this color! I was a little worried that this was going to be identical to Essie Mint Candy Apple (my all time fave), but it's really not. It's got some gray in it, so it's a more subdued, murky green. It's a really really pretty color and I can't wait to try a few more from this collection. The application was nice, my nails are a bit streaky but I think it's only because I was super tired and did a rush paint job right before bed last night. All in all, I love it.

I love this color. the hint of grey keeps it from being hugely bright but also makes it unique.
I did 3 coats and it's opaque. 2 was just not enough IMO. Right now I am wearing it with silver shatter or i'd upload a picture here (you can see it in my gallery though)
Drying time wasn't bad and it went on nicely even though I hate the prowide brush.

I'm really excited about this polish! I've owned a few other minty colors, and find this one to be pretty wearable. The Sinful Colors Mint Apple is a close dupe, but not quite there. That one had some golden shimmer, it seemed, and this has none. That was also not smoky at all, and this color has just a touch of grey in it to make it smoky and not crazy bright. I really like this color for summer...and it will also be a fun color to spice things up in the winter when you need a pick me up. I'm really liking this! It was $8.50 at ULTA. This is a part of the OPI Pirates of the Caribbean collection.
