      I have a whole drawer full of different nail polishes. I love to experiment with different colors, especially on my toes during the summer months when I am either going barefoot or have open-toes shoes or sandals on. Every time I see a new or interesting shade, I pick it up. So, when I was at Walgreen’s recently and found Revlon’s “Minted”, I had to have it. I had seen a similar color on a girl at the beach a few weeks before, and I love dhow it looked on her feet with a tan. The color is unconventional, it’s

      a mint-green type hue and it’s light enough to be considered a pastel. I thought the color was fun, so I purchased it. The cost was about $7, which is typical for Revlon polish. The display said it was a limited edition, so I’m not sure if it’s a color they are only going to have available in the summertime, or if they are going to discontinue it.

      I applied the polish right when I got home, and the first thing I noticed was that it was very thick. Usually new nail polishes that were just purchased from the store are more

      runny, but this one was thick and a bit gloppy. The brush was thin, and I ended up with streaks the first time I used it. I added a tiny bit of acetone nail polish remover and shook it up for a long time, and that helped a bit with the consistency of the polish. I applied two coats, and then followed with a clear top coat. The clear top coat seemed to even out the look of the polish and made the streaks disappear. The color was gorgeous and fun.

      After wearing the nail polish on my toes for about ...

      a week, I had received so many comments on the way it looked. Several other women asked me what color it was and where I had purchased it. The color was fun and trendy, and it was perfect for casual wear. I would probably not wear it on my fingernails since it is a green hue and it would look inappropriate, but for toes it is really cute.

      The downside to the polish is that besides being difficult to apply due to the thick texture, it doesn’t last a long time. The polish seemed to fade after about a week, and after

      10 days it was chipping so I had to reapply. For me, the fact that it is a bit thick and gloppy, and the fact that it doesn’t last are no big deal because the fact that I love the color so much totally makes up for the product’s downfalls. So, even though this is not the highest quality polish, I would still recommend it to anyone who is looking for a trendy and fun color that looks great with a tan during the summer. To solve the issue of streaks, try adding a bit of thinner to the nail polish, that worked for me.
