China Glaze Refresh Mint

2 coats, sunlight

China Glaze Refresh Mint is the latest addition to my pastels family. This is part of the Spring 2010 Up and Away collection. It is a pale mint green that turns opaque in two coats. Application was a bit iffy and I thought it was slightly more difficult to apply than the other pastel polishes in the range. It was thick and watery at the same time, which means that the paint bled more easily at the cuticles. Nonetheless, I love this incredible vintage green colour.

I haven’t been carrying my camera around recently so this explains the deluge of iPhone-taken photographs. The colour in this picture is not accurate. The very first photograph at the top of the post is. Maggie’s nails were a lot prettier in real life and resembled (in another colleague’s words) a China teacup with the green and gold.

Yup, another inaccurate iPhone photograph. Here I paired Refresh Mint with Something Sweet for Emily’s Christmas-themed nails.

I have Refresh Mint on my big toes, along with other China Glaze pastels on the rest, topped with China Glaze’s matte top coat.
