As you may be able to tell, I'm a little bit of an Essie lover. I really enjoy their range of colors, formula and the size/fanning of the the brush. Today, I used Essie's Mint Candy Apple to liven up my nails and I'm thinking later tonight I might practice some nail art on top. I'd say that Mint Candy Apple runs a little thinner than most Essie nail polish (similar to my previous review of Over The Top). I used three layers (plus Seche Vite!) to achieve total opaqueness.
