Sinful Colors Mint Apple + BB Couture Bassins Bleu II

Got the Mint Apple from Silver Diva over at Nail-ing Life Online in a swap
Coz I specifically asked for it
And for once
For once!
It is actually as delightful as hoped
It has sparkle, it has inner beauty...

None of this - Oh, they're a wonderful squad man-for-man, far superior to the Germans, just you wait, they'll make mincemeat of the opposition, Premier League players, best in the world! - nonsense.

No, this is a polish that promises fabulosity and DELIVERS. Hear that, S Gerrard? DELIVERS! No empty boasts.

Not that I'm bitter or anything. Not that I feel duped by the hype at all.

The accent nail is my beloved Bassins Bleu (why not Bleus so the adjective agrees with the plural noun?) and is quite a surprise because they look a lot closer in the bottle than on the ongle. You can see here, yes? But in the final analysis *hums Final Countdown* it's far darker.

Do I think mint has had its chips? No. Not in this house. It's a new classic. That's my final word on the matter.

It's hot. I made a worse mess than usual. I seek pardon.



  1. Love it! Im hooked on Jade coloured polishes lately and thats just gorgeous.


  2. oh man, I love LOVE this color and I really thought Sinful stepped up their game as far as formula goes too! looks great on you, but I have yet to find a person it doesn't look good on!

  3. Yes, this suits everyone.
    Sinful do such a limited range in the UK. It's tragic!

  4. This looks fab! I love the subtle accent nail. I also love how your posts get more and more cryptic every day :D

  5. Crypticityiousness is not my intention. Just a stylistic fault. And rushing!
    I'll claim it as a virtue though.

  6. This is a gorgeous mint, I love it!

  7. What a gorgeous colour - I love the subtle shimmer.

  8. i have owned this since february (?) but it is still untried... *runs away in shame*

  9. i'm not really a light green jade person. I never got into the jade green color craze but I really like this color. blueish green.

  10. jbrobeck:

  11. Both are really, really nice colours - I don't have any polishes from these brands, may have to check them out! That's the problem with blogs, you always end up wanting something!x

  12. They do look a lot closer in the bottle than on the nail; interesting how that works sometimes.

  13. It's gooooorrrrgeeeeous!! Love it on you. Your nails are looking fab, Jenni.
    Has mint had it's chips? Never, at least not if it's a Peppermint Aero, my all time fave chocolate.

  14. Vix, you're back!
    Stellie: must get some BB and Sinful for sure...
