Revlon Minted: £1.25 from Fragrance Direct/ Barry M Hologram Hexagrams: (discontinued)
The sun is shining, it's lovely and spring-y outside and despite being woken up by a load of construction work this morning nearby to my house, it's fair to say I'm in a bloody good mood. It doesn't even need to be particularly warm, but as soon as that sun shows his face I swear I'm like a different person- my motivation levels go through the roof!
What better way to embrace the spring spirit than by busting out your favourite mint polish, in my case it's Minted by Revlon. Like every beauty blogger worth their weight in nail polish, I'm pretty much obsessed with pastel nails at this time of year (pastel colours are my favourites in general actually, they're just way prettier than neons and darks!) I've gone with Barry M's Hologram Hexagrams on the accent nail, although after searching for a link to add to this post it seems as though they've discontinued it. I have to wonder who makes the decisions for which shades get cut, because there are so many other Barry M polishes that aren't half as nice as this and they're still on the shelves? I'm quite gutted as this was one of my favourite glitter top coats, and as you can probably see from the picture I don't have a whole load left either where I use it to death.
Like most light nail polishes, Revlon's Minted is a bit streaky and so I did need two coats when I was applying it today. Despite the fact it's on the streaky side I'm still impressed with this formulation, I've had this polish since last spring/ summer and it's lasted really well and hasn't gone gloopy in the slightest. If you're interested in an inexpensive mint polish, this one is in stock on Fragrance Direct right now for just £1.25 (considering Revlon Nail Enamels are around £7 in Superdrug and Boots, that's a nice saving!) Now to go on the hunt for a replacement for my beloved Hologram Hexagrams, if you know of anything similar let me know.
Have you tried either of these polishes? Whats on your nails today?
