Here at Lacquerous, we are always on the lookout for new lacquers to add to our growing inventory. We figure it would be a great idea to test out some brands and let our dear readers know how they perform.
Mint Polish is a fairly new lacquer company, but it’s already creating buzz for its fast drying “one coat wonders.” Started in 2012 by Greta Huberty, Mint Polish prides itself on being vegan, 5-free and 100% American made. Their mission statement is “Good. Clean. Colors” and I think they certainly live up to it.
The first Mint Polish shade I tried was Bellini Babe. This is a soft peach glitter lacquer that sparkles beautifully in the sun. I applied two coats and it looked exactly like it does in the bottle.
Next I wore Pass the Scone, which is a rich taupe color. This polish reminds me of a latte and is opaque in just one coat.
I also layered Bellini Babe over Pass the Scone, which gave it a lovely shine!
The third Mint Polish shade I tried is Lavender Macaron. This is probably the best lavender shade I’ve tried. It’s so vibrant and I love that it applies perfectly in just one coat.
Next up is Original Mint. This shade is stunning! I found that it applies a bit lighter than it looks in the bottle but it’s still a gorgeous color.
Bleeker St. Babe is a khaki green shade that can skew from green to gray depending on the light. This shade is a great neutral and it would work well on any skin tone.
The next shade I wore is Sweet Liberty. This is my favorite shade in the collection and is one of the best nail polish colors I’ve ever worn. This red orange color is so bright and looks amazing with tan skin. When I wear it I can’t stop looking at my nails! Sweet Liberty is a perfect summer shade.
Dirty Shirley is a hot pink lacquer with a hint of iridescence. The purple pearlescent undertones make this shade really stand out. Like with Sweet Liberty, when I wore this I couldn’t stop staring at my nails!
The final shade I wore is Ribbon Dancer, Mint Polish’s first glitter polish. This shade is packed with glitter and looks great on its own.
I also layered Ribbon Dancer over Dirty Shirley, which really made it pop.
