Care for a Mint Candy Apple? Your Nails Do!

Every time I come to New York, it seems I pick up on a new trend. (And of course, since I’ve moved here – I see them everywhere!)

The latest trend I’m trying is essie’s Mint Candy Apple nail color.

I’m not one for bright nail colors – I like low-maintenance colors like light pinks, which don’t show chips as easily – but I couldn’t stop thinking about this nail color…

  • I’m a sucker for pastels.
  • The color reminds me of a Tiffany jewelry box.
  • I complimented a man on the street who was wearing the color (alternated with lilac) and we had a fun conversation about how fun it is: “Ooh! I love your nails!” “Thanks, it’s essie!” “It’s fabulous – Is that the mint-something color?”

When he replied that it was, I mentally filed that tidbit away until last night, when I bought it at Ricky’s. I was in need of a pick-me-up, so I paired my mint candy apple with some Trader Joe’s dark chocolate, TLC’s Crazy about Pippa, and an issue of Cosmo.

The result? Instant happiness.
