Minty Fresh

Wednesday 15 May 2013

Hey Ladies,

As you can probably tell from my newly designed website I love the shade that is pastel minty green. I have a top ten spring nail polish post coming soon and I couldn't pick just one mint green so I thought i'd treat you to a post dedicated to my favourite nail polish shade.
OPI Mermaid Tears, Color Club New Bohemian, Essie Turquoise & Caicos, Sephora by OPI Read My Palm 

OPI - Mermaid Tears - £10.00
A grey toned mint green, applies like a dream and is a slightly more toned down minty green.

Colour Club - New Bohemian - £5.30
This is described as a turquoise but mine is certainly a slightly blue toned mint green, it's the brightest of the bunch and just effortlessly cool.

Essie - Turquoise & Caicos - £7.99
Again not a turquoise despite the name but this is the colour of the Caribbean ocean a bluey green that just demands to be worn on white sand. Definitely my favourite.

Sephora by OPI - Read My Palm - $9.50
A pastel jade green and the most green in tone overall, I have heard this is dodgy to apply but mine seems fine and two coats is all I need. Of course we can't get this in the UK unless you do a swap (like me) but I've not come across a similar shade but am always on the look out, should have gotten a back up ... silly Nicola.

Do you have a favourite minty/turquoise green nail polish? I am not adverse to finding some new ones!!


  1. I've had my eye on Turquoise and Caicos for so long. Now that I've seen them compared to the others, I will def be buying it! Great post :)

  2. I wanted to try Revlon's Minted, but I cannot find it in my dollar store anymore!
    Do I have a favourite minty green shade? I don't think so, the ones I have is not quite minty engouh!

    1. perhaps Essie Mint Candy Apple would be for you as its more on the minty side xxx

  3. Turquoise & Caicos is my favorite minty color, but mermaid tears is my favorite minty color name!! L'Oreal just recently came out with a minty color. I noticed it the other day, but have far too many to get another :)

  4. Love the essie shade, such a beautiful green x
