With Spring hopefully around the corner my mind wanders to clean fresh shades. Cult-classic Essie Mint Candy Apple fits the bill perfectly.
Did you know there are two versions of this polish? Essie reformulated it a few years ago. The original version is said to be a pale blue whereas the reformulated version is more Mint green.
I bought my bottle back in 2013 and I thought it was the original version because it’s definitely not Mint green and I have seen the Mint green version in stores since. Research however says that because my bottle bears this number:
It’s the newer version. I’m not entirely convinced so I will let you be the judge:
What do you think? Old or new? It will forever be a mystery to me! Either way it’s a beautiful polish and I use it quite frequently and year-round (it makes a wonderful base for winter nail art!)
If you don’t have this Essie cult classic I suggest you grab yourself a bottle, old or new you can’t go wrong!
