    There it is Pettermint Patti. My one lemming. I have all but 2 of the rest. I don’t know what it is about mint but it’s still going strong. Thanks for showing them all.

      Hi Lucy,

      I actually didn’t really like Peppermint Patti that much on me. All the others looked a lot nicer and most applied better from what I can remember. Don’t fret, you didn’t miss much!

    Why oh why is Mint Sprint still untried for me? Love it!

      Hi Laura,

      Yes try it, it’s a great one!

    Wow, Kelly this is a great comparison of mints! Love it, thank you. <3

      Hi Niki,

      Oh yay, glad you liked it! I didn’t realize how many I actually had!

  • May 20, 2010

    Oh god the MAC swatch! Hehe, sadly I only have two of these.

      Hi Arrianne,

      That is seriously the worst swatch ever. My hands were SO RED, the color was so off and the lighting sucked. It gives me the willies, LOL!

    i’m jealous! whenever i wear mints my hands go lobster :(

    i think i like the RGB best…i love their polishes in general but i don’t own that one!

      Hi sara,

      Yeah it only happens with me on a couple (Peppermint Patti is GOD AWFUL on me). :)

  • May 20, 2010

    I love the look of mint-green polishes, but I only own a few because they always make my hands look super red. You, however wear them well!

    What do you think of milf? Is it like a dusty mint by chance? We don’t have illamasqua at our sephoras here in Canada, we’d have to buy online. :(

  • May 20, 2010

    I think I like the American Apparel Office the best… I’ll have to track it down

  • May 20, 2010

    Truly, that MAC swatch IS god-awful, LOL! I do like most of these on you, but, as I have posted before, I am giving up on the mint-green thing. I have the CG Re-fresh Mint and that was the ugliest polish on me…probably the worst ever. My husband thought it looked like a forest service vehicle (you know, with that distinctive mint green paint). Or maybe it was something like, I died, and that’s what my nails would look like afterwards….Anyway, IF I take a chance again on the mint green thing, I think I will try the BB Couture Laguna Lagoon. Maybe if I go more lime green, than mint, I’ll be okay. More yellow, than blue, perhaps? Thanks for the comparisons~!

    Love your mint comparisons, Kelly. I just did a mint mani last night with Sinful Colors mint apple. This mint has a bit of shimmer, making it a little different and very pretty and summery. You’ll have to check it out.

    I would just like to say that I love your thumbnails on the bottom of the post. Great idea and a big help in comparison! Please keep them!

    He he I love the Peppermint Patti – think it looks good on you even if you don’t! Love the OPI as well. I compared my 2 favourite mint nail polishes the other day (but maybe they’re only available in the UK?) Barry M Mint Green vs Nails Inc Spring Mews… Barry M is my favourite! But I think I might have to go our and get the OPI one to try.

    I can’t wait to have a green nail polish, I don’t have any, just a glitter turquoise one :)
    If I could, I’d love to have the Make Up Store one (I live in Sweden so it’s totally okay), the OPI one, the Amerian Apparel one and the new one from China Glaze from the Poolside collection :)

  • May 24, 2010
    Yay yay yay

    Love the Essie!! Mint Candy Apple is by far the HOTTEST if you can’t afford the Chanel Jade.

    Hi Kelly:

    Love the thumbnails posts of these gorgeous colors. I love them all, and sexy they are. I missed the OPI contest didn’t I?

    (((((Love Kelly)))))
