Essie Mint Candy Apple

Happy Manicure Monday! Today’s lacquer is Essie Mint Candy Apple.

Essie Mint Candy Apple

Mint Candy Apple is a cult favorite in the beauty world. It is described as a menthol light green nail polish and it has a cream finish.


I have three similar Essie shades that I alternate with when I’m feeling pastel nail polish. I typically go for Mint Candy Apple, Absolutely Shore or Borrowed and Blue. I feel like MCA is the most eye catching of the three.

The formula is watery and patchy at first. As with most light colors, this polish requires patience and layers. Overall, I find the effort to be worth it because it’s such a great summer hue. It looks stunning with a tan. I have worn it in the Spring and Winter as well, because it gives off a different vibe when my skin is lighter.
