I'm so into mints right now, I have about half the ones you showed, but I'm still jealous of your collection! I so wish I had gotten Damone Roberts when I had the chance! Great swatches I'm kind of feeling that Hot Topic one at the bottom, I may pick it up to have an almost neon mint.

For those of us that missed out on Chanel Jade, what do you think is the closest dupe? Thanks!

The closest I've found to Chanel Jade is Claire's Dream Catcher. Even though Claire's base is more green than mint, the shimmer is dead on Chanel's. It's a bargain at $4.50, check it out! :)

Gorgeous polishes! Where did you find the Nicole by OPI Hint of Mint? I LOVE that color!

This is mint Heaven! My favorite dotty manicures also. Have a wonderful holiday Steph and a Happy New Year.

I love mint green, but I was sadly disappointed when I applied Essie MCA :( Somehow it just doesn't look good with my colouring.

I am in love with these mint polishes! My favorite is MCA. I'm really pale (sadly) and it work well with my coloring. I think you have to be pale to wear it. I was also surprised to see Jade - I didn't like it as much as in the bottle! Thanks!

These are so pretty on you. Chanel, Mac, & OPI are dead on ringers for each other. I really like the American Apparel & RGB. Thanks for the wonderful swatches for comparison.

Ricky’s NYC has a lot of affordable name-brand makeup available in store and on their website (www.rickysnyc.com), including their exclusive makeup line called Mattese Elite. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re interested.

I want all of them! But in Mexico is extremely hard to find this kind of shades, the Chanel green never arrived and there's no Walmart selling this shades or any another store. I really hate it because I'm in love with this colors, this is so sad!

oh my gosh. I'm so jealous.
