Twinsie Tuesday Birthstone Mani

Hello friendlies!
 
We are showing you a mani using our birthstone color this week at Twinsie Tuesday.  My birthday is August 17, and August's birthstone is peridot.  Peridot can range from yellow-green to olive green.  When I was younger, I thought that peridot was really boring, but now I love it.  Green is now one of my favorite colors (not so much for nail polish though).
 
Since I don't love green nail polish that much, I didn't have much to work with.  One shade of green that I like in polish is mint or aqua.  I own two mint polishes, one of them is Revlon Minted which I am showing you today. 
 
Minted took 4 coats to reach opacity.  I do quite thin coats so I'm sure you could get away with 2-3 thicker coats.  It did dry really quickly, so it made the 4 coats manageable. 
 
 

I want to send a warm welcome to our newest Twinsie Jamie!  So glad to have you!

  12. I don't know what you did, but you made me love Minted, a Revlon that had to give away because it just didn't work for me.
