Revlon Minted + Shatter
Revlon's Minted is apparently a dupe for the much-beloved China Glaze Refresh-Mint, and from what I've seen it's pretty close. Application was a breeze, three coats required for opacity since Revlon tends to be more flowy/liquidy than OPI or China Glaze. This means that it dries really smooth and clear, but it also takes a little longer to dry and needs more coats. Overall, I loved this color, even without the Shatter it looks like a Robin's Egg but slightly greener. It's a nice pale green which works with the pastels that seem to be everywhere this Spring. I'm thinking it would be nice with other shatters or a nice glitter top coat. It's a nice basic green.
It matched really well with a wall near where work. Shatter near peeling paint - poetic, no?
It looks blue in these pictures, but that's because I couldn't really get a full sun pic today. It's definitely a pale, pastel green.
