Craving Spring on this Bitterly Cold Day

As NYC has one of the coldest days of the winter, I cannot help but slightly rebel and throw on one of my favorite spring nail polishes, Essie “Mint Candy Apple.”  I needed to bring a little Spring into my life.

PS: thank you all SO much for the Spain recommendations! You guys are the best!

    J'adore this polish color! I use Revlon's 'minted' and get a near identical result. Loving your rings as well- especially the Arty πŸ™‚

    Love the polish!!!!


  • rustymirror

    Feeling the same here, I've got my bright pink polish on!
    Absolutely love the rings as well


  • sternchenslove

    Pretty! One ring is YSL and the other ? Is that ring from Dior? ThatΒ΄s so cute!


  • BrooklynBlonde

    @ Serena, I'm definitely going to check out the Revlon color. Revlon is actually my favorite brand for polishes. I find they last longer than anything else!

    @Sternchenslove, one is YSL and the other I got from eBay. "Inspired By" the Dior ring, I'm sure! πŸ™‚

    I need spring too. I love your rings. =)

  • Tenesa The Artisan

    Yes, I definitely love the rings. They compliment the nail color so well. I guess you are trying to thrust your mind into spring, even though your body isn't there yet, lol! Time has been moving fast, before you know it, it will be spring soon πŸ™‚ I can't wait to put my coat in hiding and show the world my wardrobe!

    I'm currently wearing Chanel's Riva polish and it resembles Mint Candy Apple. I feel odd wearing such a shade during Winter, but oh well! Also loving the Arty ring. I have the same one, thanks in part to your photos of it =)
