Because of all the hype over mint colored nails, I found myself buying a lot of mint polishes BUT I have yet to wear one as a full manicure...HILARIOUS!
So here are my colors, which one should I make my first mint manicure?
Left to right (starting at thumb)
Avon "Teal Waters" 3 coats
Catrice "Sold Out Forever" 2 coats
OPI "Damone Roberts 1968" 2 coats
Revlon "Minted" 2 coats
China Glaze "Re-Fresh Mint" 2 coats
I was surprised to see that the coveted Catrice (Chanel Jade dupe) was so close in color to the Damone Roberts...this is good for those of you who could not get your hands on "Jade", you still have a chance with OPI Damone Roberts and the Catrice. :)
I also love that the Revlon and The CG are both light mints but different. The Revlon is cooler and more blue and the CG is warmer, they are so close, but still different. The Avon is in its own category, a great minted shimmer.
So if you got the OPI Damone Roberts, you are all right for the color of "Jade", but still missing the shimmer. Here's a closer look!
Can you see the shimmer, the shimmer is a really nice bright green shimmer, subtle yet stunning.
If this Catrice is a "Chanel Jade" dupe, then I NOW know why they all went crazy for it...STUNNING!
