Revlon Minted + Glitter!

Hi friends! Here is another polish I picked up in August from Walgreens! They were doing some Register Rewards thing where it was like $3.99 for one, but then they gave you a coupon for $3.99 off the next purchase, so you could use it on the next one and basically get buy one get one free! Well, I had a brain fart at the register and paid for the two Revlon's together, so I only got one coupon, and I should have paid separately then I would have gotten one free, and another coupon to use towards the rest of my polishes in a third purchase! Ok...I've watched too many couponing shows! Here is Revlon Minted!

The first coat looked terrible, but after a careful second coat, it was much better. I did three coats to achieve total opacity. This is a really pretty light mint green. I immediately think of my Essie Turquoise and Caicos when I try to think of a similar color in my stash, but when you look closely - they aren't really THAT similar. T&C is much more blue, though it too is a bright color in the teal/turquoise family!

Essie Turquoise and Caicos, for comparison


Then, I decided to top Minted with OPI Sparkle Teal Sunrise, which was an Ulta exclusive shade from this summer. I remember Ulta was doing a Buy 2 Get 1 OPI free, so I picked up Sweet Memories and I Lily Love You, and got this free! I think I grabbed Funky Dunkey on clearance too that day!

I LOVE this combination! The teal base to the glitter changes it to a beautiful turquoise color! And of course the iridescent glitter adds a really nice sparkle!

What do you guys think?


  1. <3 THE COMBOO !! looks amazing on you sweetie !!

  2. Thank you!! I wasn't so hot on Minted by itself, though I do appreciate the uniqueness of the color - it's not a shade you see every day is it! But once I added the OPI sparkle, I was sold! Think I'll have to break this out on the toesies during warmer weather!
