Mint Polish Swatches and Review – Original Mint and Ribbon Dancer

Mint is a boutique nail varnish company that specializes in ultra-formulated toxin-free* polish. The idea behind Mint originated after the discovery that nail polish products are still considered Hazardous Waste in counties like Los Angeles. The idea that we are coating our nails with something that we can’t safely put in the trash was dumbfounding, especially considering Proposition 65, California’s Toxic Enforcement Act.


Before our 2012 release, Mint’s formula was tweaked, tested, and re-tweaked to exhaustion. The result? A long-wearing nail lacquer with increased molecular polymers to improve shine, durability, and application. Not included in our secret formula? Formaldehyde, DBP, Toulene, and animal testing.

Good morning!  I have 2 beautiful polishes to show you on this chilly morning.  Both are from a fairly new brand called Mint Nail Polish!

Original Mint:

I’m seriously turning into a mint colored polish hoarder.  I blame Love for Lacquer personally!  Original Mint is a beautiful mint shade but with a slightly dusty quality.  It’s very slight, but I could tell while wearing it.  Mint  Polish describes it as a mix of  Tiffany’s blue  with spearmint candy color wise!  I only needed 2 coats for this lovely creme polish and a glossy top coat and I was good to go!

Ribbon Dancer:

Ribbon Dancer is a gorgeous sheer magenta jelly base with tons of pink micro glitter packed within.  It is incredibly sheer and I used 4 coats to achieve the color in the photo.  You can also layer it over your favorite pink or purple if you don’t wish to build it up on it’s own like I did!  I used 2 coats of top coat to smooth the mani out and it is so incredibly sparkly!  Stunning in sunlight!

Beautiful right?  You can find more gorgeous shades through the Mint Polish website HERE

Each bottle of Mint Polish retails for $10.00 except their new polish Reindeer Tracks which retails for $12.50
