NOTD: Essie Mint Candy Apple!

Two (2) coats of Essie Mint Candy Apple (No top coat)
Essie Mint Candy Apple is a polish I've wanted ever since it launched in Essie's Winter of 2009 Collection. I finally got a hold a bottle in a swap, and I really like it! I think it's a perfect color for Spring.

Mint Candy Apple is a creme formula, pastel, whitened green. The formula of this polish is great. It didn't apply streaky to my nails, it dried fairly quick and looked completely opaque with two coats.

NOTD: China Glaze For Audrey!

One (1) coat of China Glaze For Audrey (No top coat)
For Audrey is the popular Sea Green/Turquoise/Tiffany's Box Blue polish that everyone has raved about. I personally really love this polish and I think it's a great color to wear on your toes when you're sporting a tan! It is true, the color is an exact replica of the Tiffany's Box Blue.

As for the polish itself, the formula is quite thick - thicker than most polishes I own. It is opaque, but if you don't have a steady hand.. it may apply streaky. I attempted to apply this in a moving vehicle (I wasn't the one driving of course, LOL) and it was a streaky mess. I later applied it at my kitchen table and it applied much better. Two coats with this is necessary for the best outcome.
