|Product: Essie Winter 2009 Collection, Nail Lacquer 0.5 oz|
|Price: $8.00 Retail|
|Buy it: Essie, Professional Salons, E-tailers|
It's that Sweet, Sweet time of the year and this Winter Essie whips up three fun n' fresh, candy coated colors sure to please your cravings!
In this limited edition collection, we have a mixture of three juicy hues of red, pink and a luscious creme de menthe dessert you don't want to pass up. Each color applied like butter. The formula was pure perfection!
Check em' out!
Lollipop is a juicy, mouth-watering red creme/jelly. It's a bit sheer and transparent on my nails as you can see in my first picture above.
Rock Candy is a sheer pink that's very Essie-esque.
I was most excited to swatch Mint Candy Apple and she does not disappoint! A perfect combination of blue and green pastel that's very unique. Looks great on most skin tones too!
For my dupe lovers, Mint Candy Apple is one of a kind. More blue than most mint greens I own, but not quite as blue as For Audrey.
And for my dotters!
It wouldn't be the same without some fun polka dots? Which is your favorite? I think I like the red with mint green dots best.
Overall, Good Collection. A fun and refreshing breath of Holiday color. Mint Candy Apple is simply amazing; a definite must have Diva's! Application and formula perfecto!
Spill the beans, who picked up Mint Candy Apple? How fabulous is it? Have a wonderful night!

Love the polka dots. I swear you are the queen of polka dots. They look so uniform.

I like the red with mint green dots best too. Cute! I think you have some of the cutest nails in the blogosphere. I love how they look with the Rock Candy on them. Very pretty! There is a dupe for mint candy apple...it's Nfu Oh #179 http://polishhoarderdisorder.blogspot.com/2009/12/its-like-committing-treason.html Based on price alone, I think Essie wins!

Just a quick note on Mint Candy Apple having a dupe - looks like it's very close to Nfu-Oh #172 over at Polish Hoarder Disorder. Different in the bottle but almost identical on the nail. (http://polishhoarderdisorder.blogspot.com/2009/12/its-like-committing-treason.html)

I'm wearing Mint Candy Apple right now. while putting it on last night, I found it a tad thick, but a few drops of thinner fixed that right up. I like it and while I wish it was a bit more green, I'm going to leave it as it is.

I adore your polka dot manicures! They are beautiful. I most definitely have to get the Mint Candy Apple. I don't know what I'm waiting for.
