Mostly Revlon Nail Enamel - Minted 85 w some Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat 01 Snow Blast

So I know that the color mint was really popular for a while, or maybe it still is. I quite like it too.
I bought this Revlon nail polish in `Minted` a while ago. I do love the color. It`s such a nice, pale, pastel green.

Here`s one thing I never understood. I know that `mint` is often described as a nice pale green with white undertones. However, mint as it exists in nature is darker, like mint leaves.

I think Sally Hansen got it right with Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Mint Sprint.

So here`s what Revlon`s Minted looks like...I`ve had it for a while, I don`t know why I don`t use it more.

Like others, I do find that it is quite streaky. I think that`s because the formula is very watery, which is okay. At least it lets me know that this nail polish won`t become really thick and goopy any time soon. This was 2 coats, which was ok, but I think that 3 coats would make it look better and completely cover up my unpainted nails, especially the thumb, which usually requires more polish anyway.

Here`s what it looks like with Sally Hansen`s Crackle Overcoat on top in Snow Blast.

Now I haven`t tried any other crackle or shatter-type polishes, and I just wanted one in white to play around with. I think I probably would have been better off with China Glaze, because this Sally Hansen bottle was pretty expensive at around $8 or something like that, but I got this back when all the China Glaze Crackle polishes were pretty much sold out and I thought this would be would work just fine. It does as long as you apply a single, thin coat and be careful in not creating any overlapping strokes.
