Polish Post: Drip Drop & Candied Apple Polish Duo

Hiya, and happy Wednesday!

Drip Drop Nail Paint and Candied Apple Polish put out a Valentine's themed duo at the end of January called the "Box of Candy Drops."  It contained one polish from each brand, and two baggies of loose glitters - one with pink butterflies and hearts, and the other with purple and holographic hearts.  I managed to snag one before they were all gone :D

The polishes included are "Mint to Be" by Drip Drop and "Sweet Nothings" by Candied Apple:









Mint to Be is a gorgeous mint colored creme polish with an ever-so-subtle holographic dusting.  It applied very smoothly and was opaque in two coats.  Dried in about 5 minutes to a nice shine.  Sweet Nothings is a glitter topper with various sized turquoise, fuchsia, and holographic glitters as well as large white hearts.  Application on this one was a little tricky, as the glitter didn't seem to spread out very much (I'm wearing two layers in the photos, and I had to move the glitters around to evenly disperse them).  It was very difficult fishing those white hearts out because they fell to the bottom so quickly.  It did dry fairly quickly though to a nice shiny finish.  I added some of the lose hearts from the box to my middle and ring fingers to continue the Valentine's design :)  Who says Valentine's designs have to be pink or red? :D

Overall, this box was okay.  Mint to Be is my favorite, and I'm always happy with the formula of Drip Drop polishes.  I will say, though, I'm deterred from purchasing glitters from Candied Apple if they will all have that same formula - it was really tough to work with.

What do you think of this duo?  Do you prefer one to the other?  :)

  16. Mint To Be is definitely the prettier color of the two... I'm not a huge fan of that glitter. You have such lovely pictures and poses! What's your secret!
