Sally Hansen Gentle Blossom

Happy St. Patrick's Day! We all know what the means. It's time for some green. Greens and I don't have the strongest of polish relationships, but a few of us get along well. My biggest green struggle is those in the mint category. I don't think this next Sally Hansen color and I play well together, but it was worth a try.

Gentle Blossom
Gentle Blossom is a light mint green with a silvery shimmer.

I don't know, this just isn't working for me. This looks too stark against my skin. I also found the color to look a bit "chalky", which can happen with some pastel shades. This color makes my hands look red as anything :-/. It's a shame because the color itself is beautiful. As of now the only mint green that works for me is Sinful Colors Mint Apple. I decided to wear Mint Apple today instead.

Happy Thursday!


  1. This is such a pretty color. I love Mint Apple! It looks like candy coating

  2. That colors is really nice. Have you tried doing some nail art with the color. These colors tend to look really nice with aqua glitter sponged on the tips. Just a tip. Lol

  3. This is a really pretty color! Sorry it didn't work out well on you! Still looks great though!

  4. i love minty colors! i prefer ones with a creme finish but this one looks nice with just a hint of shimmer

  5. Really pretty! :)

    I did a mint mani for St. Patty's too. You can check it out on my blog (my latest post) if ya want.
