Essie are one of my fave higher end nail brands, they are a little expensive but when I see a bargain like I did with this set I snapped it up straight away. Essie Twinkle Belle Set contains Mint Candy Apple and Sparkle On Top. So basically you are getting a base colour and shimmering top coat. It retails for €16.99 but online it costs €19.99 so my top tip is to pop into your local boots for this one.
Mint candy apple is the perfect mint green shade that is perfect for spring and summer. Its super creamy and opaque. Sparkle on top is a sheer glittery shade that contains chunks of white sparkles. They do look great together on the nails as either just an accent nail or placed on all the nails. While you can wear mint candy apple on its own, Sparkle On Top is a little sheer for my liking to wear alone, but it makes a great top coat over any shade. As all Essie polishes wear time is pretty good with 4 days wear before I noticed any chips. Which I feel is pretty standard.
Overall a great little duo kit that I think I will get a lot of use out of this spring/summer. Essie always do little duo sets for a lower cost then buying two polishes individually so always check your nearest stand for a sneaky bargain.
Have you tried any of these shades?
