Mint nail polish comparison~


Just a small comparison
Been pretty lazy with applying nail polish lately but if I do I have been addicted to wearing minty shades~ haven't had much time to buy other mint shade nail polish but once I get more will make sure to do a comparison :)






 I lined it up with light to dark shades, the HK polish is the lightest out of the three with more on a pastel blue-ish shade, the SH I would say is the true mint shade out of the 3 and Orly polish are more on the aqua shade out of the 3 shades~


consistency:
HK is the runniest out of the 3, thin consistency requires 3 coats to achieve full opacity.  
 Nice consistency not to runny not to thick easy to apply, need only 2 coats to achieve opacity
Semi thick consistency, a little bit on the gooey side but only need 2 coats to achieve opacity

with 3 coats


with 2 coats


with 2 coats
 Overall:

I LOVE SH mint sorbet the most long lasting and fast drying polish out of 3 with the right shade of mint and the price doesn't hurt either! ^__^



well that was it for this post~
 please let me know what is your favorite mint polish as well? ♥


XOXO

  14. All the colors are so cute! I actually like the Sally Hansen polish the best too!  The color is super duper pretty, and it looks the most "matte" out of the 3, if that can even be applied to these types of polishes. I guess I mean it looks to have the most smooth finish out of the 3 :) I need to stock up on more Sally Hansen polishes! I bought this really pretty aqua blue shade (when I was going through my love phase for MONDO from Project Runway!) but I never got around to actually using it. XD Could you also do a comparison with your Peripera polishes?? I just saw the picture under the "You might also like:" tab and noticed a blue one there heehee :DD

  16. Thank you so much for the comparison! I think I need to give Sally Hansen more of a chance, it really looks good!

  17. Awhh i fell in love with mint colors as well this year xD

    I really liked the hello kitty one but if it take 3 coats, i usually will mess up and it looks bad ;__;
    But my favorite would have to be the Sally Hansen one because of the color (perfect!). The ORLY one is just too on the blue-ish side D:

  19. My favourite mint polish is Essie's Mint Candy Apple- it's not too thick or runny, and it's very opaque so you only need 2 coats for good coverage. :)

  28. Mint coloured polishes are so pretty. All of them look really pretty, I prefer Orly's Gumdrop because it leans more to the blue side.

  29. I love Mint Sorbet! One of the best pastel shades out there IMO!
