BLUE-GREEN SUMMER NAILS

L-R: L'oreal Not a  cloud in sight, Essie first timer, Revlon eclectic, Essie mint candy apple

I have developed a thing for mints, blues and greens over the last year. I love the brightness and freshness of these colors, which are just so perfect for summer. I have been wearing all possible shades of blue and green on my nails the past few months, and here are my favorites ;) 

Essie Mint Candy Apple: This is one of my first blogger influenced purchases. It is a bluish mint color, and is a bit streaky on the first coat. But after the second coat, it leaves your nails with a gorgeous opaque layer of a baby blue shade with a hint of mint. 

Revlon Eclectic: This is the perfect mint-green shade. I just love how easy it is to apply and the freshness in the color, so rejuvenating! 

Essie First Timer: I got this from essie's summer collection last year, and it is a sea green with a hint of blue in it. I love that it goes on very opaque, and the color itself is very pleasant and calming.

L'oreal Not a cloud in sight: This is again from my last year collection and is the blue-est of them all. The perfect sky blue is what I would call this. The formula is amazing and it goes on extremely smooth on the nails. 

I have been rocking these colors in the hot months, and they are so perfect for the beach or a picnic. Love love love! :) 

What are your favorite summer shades? ;)

  7. I'm really loving the mint nail polish trend. It somehow really wakes up your hands but not in a jarring way. I never really consider drugstore polishes, but that Revlon looks like a near dupe of Essie's Mint Candy Apple. Great post girlie.
