Mint Polish: Esmeralda & Czarina

I hope everyone has had a great weekend! I had a pretty awesome Saturday myself. I spent the whole afternoon shopping with my mum and sis and bought some presents for my niece and nephew. I also got a new external hard drive (yay to more storage!) and a new fragrance for myself. I was deciding between Trussardi's My Name and Gucci's Guilty Stud (LE) but settled on Guilty and got a free Issey Miyake Floral sample to try. I quite like all of them but I am trying my best to resist my hoarder instincts because they can't be kept for long.. well not as long as I would like them to anyway!

Anyhow, I have a new-to-me brand to share with all of you today - mint polish! I am sure this brand is not unfamiliar to many of you. I have had these two bottles with me for a while now but only got around to swatching them recently.

Esmeralda. 2 thin coats.
A creamy royal purple that glided onto the nails. I love how fun this shade looked - which totally fitted the name. If you are a purple fan, you would love this!

Czarina. 3 thin coats.
A shimmery emerald that is so slightly duochrome. I couldn't capture the colour shift but you can catch hints of it in the bottle. I had expected this to be very sheer but it built up nicely in two coats. I added a third one for good measure and a richer tone.

I have no complaints about the formula and application. I did take a while to get used to the brush wand which was slightly longer because of the longer bottle shape but it didn't hinder my application at all. You should be careful to get excess polish off the wand when applying because the runnier polishes may run down the wand and pool at the brush tip after a while.

So what do you think of these colours? Have you tried Mint Polish before?
I do think that Mint Polish did a pretty awesome job at sticking to their mission of making good clean colours!

Mint Polish is available on their website or through stockists like Dazzled.
