Manicure Monday: NYC Mint Macaroon

Today's nail polish for Manicure Monday is a minty blue-green by NYC New York Color, called Mint Macaroon. 

I am an honest person.  I don't want to tell everyone that I love something, just to have them go out and buy the product...knowing it will end in disappointment.  I had high hopes for this color, I really did.  Mint is very on-trend right now and it's a color I really love, so I was excited about trying this out. 

The color looks nice on the nails, but it's more of an aqua blue than a mint.  The problem was the consistency of the lacquer...it was not quite right.  I'm not sure if it was the brush or the polish itself, but when I put it on it was uneven, clumpy and streaky.  I know this is not the case with other NYC nail color, because I have used many in the past and loved them.  Maybe I just got a weird one, I don't know.  I might try using the polish with a different brush and see if that helps.

So...what's on your nails this week?  Have you found any new nail polishes recently that you would recommend?

This product was provided for review. However, all opinions are my own.

  3. ummm i need to get a minty color. love this on you. i have a pink color with zebra stripes on my fourth finger :)


  4. I have just bought a colour very similar to this and really love it! Even my boyfriend commented that it looked cool (I almost fell over!). Maybe you could try a new bottle - yours might have gone off? xx

  5. OOOhhh I love that color & NYC is so affordable! :)

  6. Maybe if you ad a small amount of finger nail polish remover to the bottle to possible thin it out a bit, might help. I just bought a sally hansen polish that the color looks great, but same as yours. Thick and clumpy and would not apply right. I was disappointed that I had to wipe it off 3 seperate nails and start over...I will be trying the polish remover to mine...I heard that it will thin it out a bit, hope it works!!

  7. Boo for clumpy... what a bust. I do love the color though!

  9. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and following :) I'm following you right back! Loving that nail color by the way.

  10. Oh My favourite colour! I like your blog already lol. I'm off to see the rest and to follow!

    Thanks again:-)

  11. I just got a similar color on my toes and I LOVE it! That's frustrating about the polish clumping. I've never had that happen with that brand before either. I bet you just got a bad bottle or something. You should send them a quick e-mail, maybe they'll replace it for you!

  12. Bummer about the clumping...I love the color!! Thanks for the visit and following, I'm following now too :) Laurel
