I have another new and different polish favorite, it’s a mint but it isn’t stereotypically that baby turquoise aqua hue.  Meet Essence’s “Like An Unforgettable Kiss” collection polish in 02 Always on My Mint. 


It’s more green than blue, like a hazy sea foam with more yellow and I dare say a tiny hint of grey (this is more noticeable in real life).  It leans more towards pistachio.  Read on for the full post.  

If Smith & Cult’s currently hot, greiged out celadon polish Bitter Buddhist had a baby sister with a big gap between them, she would be this…lighter, fresher, undoubtedly pastel but still the same tone, significantly not turquoise.  Here I have a base coat, 3 thin coats, and a top coat applied.



Here’s how Always on My Mint looks in different indoor lighting on someone else via Pinterest, click here to see it and you’ll see what I mean about the hue having more yellow than your usual aqua mint.  The drying time is quick, about 1.5 to 2 minutes per layer, and it’s the same consistency as my already reviewed Barry M polish in “Eat My Dust” plus “Always on My Mint” also has a lovely wide brush. I picked this polish up from SM Aura department store for Php129.00…it just popped out at me on the shelf.
