Lynnderella - Attitude Adjust-Mint

Lynnderella's Attitude Adjust-Mint was actually one of her polishes that I just didn't know how to wear.  Pretty much every swatch I'd seem had it layered of a lovely minty green creme. But you seen I don't actually own any mint green cremes except one I frankened about two years ago, and it wasn't really winning me over, but was going to have to do.

But then, as I was putting my Picture Polish bottles in their Helmer drawer, I saw my bottle of Peripera P027 Metallic Green, with it's little cat's bum facing me, and I had a light bulb moment.  The metallic green polish that shifts blue seemed to have the exact same shifting properties as the iridescent green glitters in Attitude Adjust-Mint.

This mani is one coat of Peripera Metallic Green, two coats of Attitude Adjust-Mint and one coat of Seche Vite.


I can't explain how much I loved this mani.  I loved that I could clearly see the glitters in Attitude Adjust-Mint, they weren't lost in the base colour, but they also matched the base colour.  I loved how the milky base of Attitude Adjust-Mint dulled the metallic finish of Metallic Green. I loved how both the base colour and the glitters shifted from minty green to blue.  I just LOVED it!






Attitude Adjust-Mint was also a really smooth glitter. No tamer or double top coating was necessary.


I have such a huge unexpected love for these two polishes together.  Wow I love it when that happens, it's usually the other way around, when something looks so awesome in the bottle and doesn't translate to the nail. But this time it was so much more on the nail than I expected it to be! 

If you have these two polishes (or Missha HGR01), you have to try this combo!

    I'm wearing AA over pink right now and it works really well over CG Re-Fresh Mint. I'm going to try it without underwear one of these days but now I've seen yours I'll try it over Missha HGR01 next :)

    1. I think this is definitely one that can go over quite a lot of colours. Just googled CG Re-Fresh Mint, yeah I don't have any polishes that colour. I wonder how many coats I would need of it on it's own to not show my stained nails.
