ESSIE ST. MARTIN MINT NOTD

As Helen of Helen & Sheenie's Nice Things would say, I'm doing the "my preeeeeecious" nail slink! hehehe As most of you know, Essie St. Martin Mint is a discontinued color that I have wanted for a several months and I just recently acquired through the kindness of a reader, again THANK YOU! While this color does take at least 4 carefully applied coats to reach bottle color and opaqueness - I feel it is totally worth it. Somethings are just worth the hassle :)


I wanted to add a little konading to this, but I didn't want to disrupt the color too much, since I still wanted to enjoy the mintyness of it all. So I selected a small flower design from konad plate #M60 and used a white for the stamp color. I think it came out just as I had hoped. I then added some small clear jewels to the center of the flowers. This is very dainty and sweet - and I think you should remember this because I don't do these type of mani's often!
