Perfectly Polished Tips 147 - MAC Peppermint Patti

MAC released Peppermint Patti for spring. It's a very pretty pale mint green creme. I love MAC's polishes, the formula, the brushes, everything however this is the only one I own. I am kicking myself for swapping Whirlwind and Rainy Day, I know I'll never see those again. Dupes just aren't good enough. I found Peppermint Patti to be a bit streaky, I used two coats and still had some streaks but since I was going to use my Konad stamper on top of it I wasn't too concerned. It dried quickly and wore wonderfully. I did this manicure late on July 17th, I took it off on the 21st because I had a huge lemming arrive at my door. I had one small chip on my left thumb. I don't know if that is due to the quality of the polish or to Lippmann's Addicted to Speed, either way I was impressed.





For the Konad design I used plate M70 and Konad Special polish in black. I got so many compliments on this manicure. Someone likened it to mint with dark chocolate drizzled on top, maybe that is why I loved it so much. This is the first noticably green polish I have worn on my nails, I'm really not a green girl but I really love this polish.
