My Pathetic Collection Of Mint Green Polishes

Green Wheel #2:  9. Models Own - Jade Stone, 8. Barry M - Mint Green, 7. IsaDora - Vintage Mint
Polish Wheel on bottom right: 3. Misa - Catch a Flick, 2. Cliché - CanCun, 1. China Glaze - Aquadelic
Green Wheel #3: 13. China Glaze - For Audrey, 12. ELF - Mint Cream, 11. Viva La Diva - #18
and 10. Laura Paige - 01 Aqua Blue. And Franken Wheel #2: 1. My NN Franken

It is funny how I love mint green polish and yet I don't own many
of them. I thought I had more. But a lot of them lean to the blue side
of the color wheel. So they can not really be called mint green.

Franken, ELF - Mint Cream, M - Catch a FlickMO - Jade Stone, BM - Mint GreenID - Vintage Mint

  3. It's not pathetic, it's lovely!!! Mint green is such an awesome polish color!

    1. Hehhe that's why it is pathetic - because it is a lovely shade and I don't have more of it - lol.

  4. Oh Ida!! So many greens! Thank you so much!!
    I really want those CG!
    You have quite a "few" I dont have!
    Hmmmm* Do want*
    Kiss Kiss*

    1. You are welcome! But it can be bad seeing post like this because you see polishes you "need".

  5. Haha vadå patetisk? Min är patetisk :D Gud vad jag vill ha Refresh Mint, jag vill ha allihop ju, men mest RM. Men den jag gillar mest var faktiskt din franken! DU borde döpa den!

  6. Men det är just det jag menar. Vi gillar mint gröna lack men ändå har vi inte mer av dem.
    Wow du gillar min franken mest. Ohhh! Tack! men jag är så dålig på namn. Har ingen aning vad jag ska kalla den.
