Minty e.l.f. Nails

So, my Sister & I were browsing our local Big Lots the other day & I wandered over to the cosmetics section like I usually do when I'm there. I picked up several items, but one item I picked up was an e.l.f. 5 piece nail polish set. The color combo I got is no longer available on the website, but you stand a good chance of picking it up at Big Lots like I did.

The color I'm wearing in the photo is called Blue Mist, which is a pretty minty green shade. If you are a patient person than by all means, get this. Otherwise, you might find applying multiple coats for full opacity a bit trying. I must've applied 4-5 coats. It's very sheer. I don't know if the other shades in this set are also like this or not. I'll have to wait & see what I think.

On the flip-side, once you finish applying it, it really is a pretty shade. It's just a pain in the butt to apply so many coats, especially after the 1-2 coat goodness of the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri nail color.

In conclusion, if you are patient about your nail color application then go ahead & get this because it really is pretty once you're finished. Otherwise, I'd say skip it.
