Essie - Mint Candy Apple, China Glaze - Re-Fresh Mint, BB Couture - Laguna Lagoon, Barry M - Mint Green, Illamasqua - Milf
Hi junkies! This isn't a terribly original post, but it may be helpful. I did a comparison of China Glaze - Re-Fresh Mint from the new Up & Away collection against some of the other mints in my collection.
Across the top:
Essie - Mint Candy Apple
China Glaze - Re-Fresh Mint
BB Couture - Laguna Lagoon
Barry M - Mint Green (my MAC - Peppermint Patti dupe)
Thumb: Illamasqua - Milf
All swatches are three coats except for Milf at 2. Re-Fresh Mint is the cleanest and brightest and is closest to mint chocolate chip ice cream, which is a good standard to go by for mint, I think! Mint Candy Apple is very close to that but more blue. Laguna Lagoon is more yellow and more toned down (not as stark). Milf is very close to Laguna Lagoon but more dusty. Mint Green is not even really comparable to any of them, but is very beautiful.
Hope you like it!
