Mint Candy Apple is such a great color! You can't help but feel cheerful when you have it one your nails!

I can see why people might complain about Essie polishes chipping / not drying as fast as drugstore brands, but you have to keep in mind that they don't put in some of the nasty chemicals (like formaldehyde) that some of the cheaper polishes do. It helps a lot if you use a base coat (I like Loreal--- it's cheaper, but also "nasty chemical"-free), and a top-coat if you want extra long life!

Also--- I'm definitely buying my polishes from Amazon.com from now on; it's definitely cheaper than paying the $8 + tax you have to pay for essie in stores.

I really love this product! It arrived promptly ahead of schedule, and it was exactly what I wanted. As many other reviewers have mentioned, this nail polish looks minty green in photographs, but in person, it's quite a blue color. That didn't bother me, and I think it might actually complement my skin tone better. Another review said that it "looked great on tan people". I'm awfully pale, and I think it looks just as wonderful. It's Essie, so the quality is high, and it's much cheaper here than it is in drugstores.
The only possible negatives that come to mind are the fact that it's almost toothpaste-colored instead of a pale green, and it's a very poppy color- definitely not for people who don't enjoy standing out.

A lot of beauty gurus on youtube were raving on this so I bought one off Amazon. I'm a loyal Essie fan and have at least 30 nail polishes from Essie, but I do notice that the formula of essie tends to be different for some colors. This one in particular is extremely creamy and takes much less time to dry than many other colors and I am sooooo impressed. It looks like a minty green in bottle but when on your nails it will lean towards a Tiffany blue color.

I've never had a chipping problem with Essie since I always use a base coat by Butter London, a top coat by Seche Vite and drying drops by OPI, This combination works great with almost any nail polish.

So this is probably one of my favorite polishes (I'm wearing it right now!). The formula is amazing; it takes about 3 coats for it to be COMPLETELY opaque. Some people complain that may be a lot, but it isn't a hassle at all because each layer dries so quickly you don't even have to wait in between each one. HOWEVER. If you're looking for a MINT color, I don't recommend this polish. It is much more of a bluish-mint, and depending on the lighting, sometimes an icy blue. It's still lovely but if you want a mint polish that always looks mint you should definitely go for the Sally Hansen Extreme Wear in Mint Sorbet instead. :)

This color is not mint in my opinion, it is a light blue. I already knew this as I always look up swatches online before buying.. but I still expected a little more green. It's ok, not an issue whatsoever.

Don't like the formula though. It's streaky and you can see the layers of polish at the bottom of the nail. I personally hate that but
a lot of pastel polishes tend to be this way. If you're careful, clean up, and use a good top coat you should be fine... but but but
I would not buy this again as I already had a very similar and pretty light blue by nyc which was two bucks.

HOWEVER, if you have seen the swatches and LOVE this color... there is an EXACT dupe at the drugstore.
It is the new Milani Color Statement nail lacquer in MINT CRUSH. It's cheaper as is and I got mine in a half off sale.
The formula is definitely better and easier to work with. I applied both the essie and milani side by side.. you cannot tell the
difference whatsoever. Same exact color. If you can get your hands on it, I recommend passing this one over.

As a side note, if you have Essie Butler Please let me tell you that Essie Mint Candy Apple is that formula... blah

I exclusively buy Essie nail polish, usually from Target. I found some really pretty colors on Amazon for a great price. Well it was too good to be true. This polish has been watered down. It was so runny it went right over the sides of my nails. When I shake the bottle I can hear how thin it is, not one of my other bottles sounds like that. I feel like I got ripped off. I will say it was packaged well and arrived quickly... but whatever, my nails look awful.

I literally just received this product today and have already put it on my nails. I am completely in LOVE with this mint color!!! I purchased Essie's Turquoise & Caicos earlier this week, but it just wasn't minty (light) enough for what I was looking for. This is Perfect!! The application of this particular polish is just what I expect from Essie - excellent opacity in just 2 coats (3 is personal preference in my opinion). I apply in smooth, light strokes, so I don't get streaking or have the need for a third coat. I use this with a Seche base and Seche top coat and it's absolutely gorgeous. Mint Candy Apple is seriously the perfect Spring or summer mint color!

I bought this off Amazon marketplace for the same reason that so many other people have mentioned: PRICE. Essie, along with OPI, is a great brand. While it can be streaky at times, as other reviewers have said, make sure the polish is thin and that it coats evenly. Sometimes, to make it really POP (especially if you are tan or dark-skinned) a third coat is necessary. On toes I recommend three coats for the big toe and two for other toenails.

The secret to all of this is really the topcoat. While Essie has a great color, nothing can beat the glass-hard, shiny finish of Seche Vite. Combining Essie and Seche Vite looks like professional work.

This color is also like "Audrey" by China Glaze. While I like the hardeners in China Glaze better, this color is prettier in Essie. It is never dingy and does not look washed out. Keep in mind that it looks a little more blue in real life than it does in the pictures online. If you want a more Green mint green, there is Go on Green by OPI, but I like this one the best (even though my middle name is Audrey).

As usual, combine with Seche Vite for best results.
