I purchased this color waaay back in December. I think I took pictures in January, but thought I had put them up. Did a quick search on my blog and surprise…no pictures.
I shall remedy that after the jump!
I’ve been on a mint kick. Well, I was on a mint kick, but it happened at night. No, not candy. I’m talking nail polish.
I had finally scored Revlon’s Minted. I got a cute sample size of Ginger & Liz’s Ivy League. I have OPI’s Damone Roberts 1968. I wanted to wear them all, but knew I really couldn’t. I decided to put them all together for a comparison because those 3 were my newest mint greens. I wasn’t thinking…and realized it was night time, but eh. Sometimes the flash really does make the color stand out as well as flatter it, but it also has a tendency to drown the color/make it prettier than what it is.
Not in this case of the Mints! It showcased everything accurately.
OPI’s Damone Roberts was a bit thick, but it dried quickly.
Ginger & Liz looks bad because I wasn’t wearing my glasses on those 2 fingers. OOPS. The formula dried quick as well.
Revlon’s color had some serious cuticle pull. I was annoyed. Formula was runny and took a while to dry.

So I made a trip to the drugstore and my friend also sent me some drugstore polishes…
I also did a comparison of OPI’s Done Out In Deco and Rimmel’s Commander in Chic.
Index and Pinkie: OPI’s Done Out In Deco
Middle and Ring: Rimmel’s Commander in Chic
I love mushroom-y taupe-y colors and was thrilled when I saw Commander In Chic. It cost $3.99 and was well worth it. It’s not breaking the bank, but I know some people have issues with paying more than 99 cents for a bottle of nail polish. I don’t know why I thought CIC was similar to OPI’s Done Out In Deco, but I put whatever it was I was smoking down and saw it all clearly. I’ll have to compare OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacque with CIC and see how it stacks against it each other.
Street Wear by Revlon: Scheming
I was so surprised that I really liked this color…I mean really liked this color. There are little gold sparks that show up when in direct sunlight. Application was mega easy and dried quickly. Pity this line was discontinued.
Rimmel’s Marine Blue
These types of shades always reminds me of the ocean…I know it’s meant to, but I love colors like these. It’s a pity they don’t look good on me, though. Ugh. I am going to be sending this color to my friend Lauryn.
Sally Hansen’s Arabian Night
A gorgeous purple polish with some rockin’ gold glitter to break up the purpleness. To be honest, I think the purple would’ve been really pretty without the gold glitter. Nonetheless, it’s still a gorgeous polish all together…pity it’s a real pain in the butt to remove thanks to the glitter. Not as bad as China Glaze’s Dorothy Who? in removal, but darn close!
