Essie Dupe for £1 - New MUA Nail Polish in Pistachio Ice Cream

MUA Pistachio Ice Cream - £1


Hi everyone! Quick post today, briefly talking about the new MUA nail polishes. Sorry about the instagram pictures, I have been having camera problems for a while now but thought I would pop this up anyway.

MUA have recently released a new line of nail polishes, and in there own words, have "new shades, new bottle and a new and improved brush!"

I have only used one of their older nail polishes before, but do agree that the brush on this new polish is slightly better. I really like the new bottle design too, I know it looks so much like the Essie polishes, I really think MUA are making their newer products look so much more nicer and they look more expensive than what they are.

The polish I chose was Pistachio Ice Cream, which has been dubbed as a good dupe for Essie Mint Candy Apple. I have never owned that polish but looking at reviews and pictures online, I would say the colour is very similar. 
As for the polish itself, I have had it on 3 days now and it has not yet chipped. Quite good for a £1 polish! I did find I needed 3 coats though to get the best colour pay off.

The new colours in the line are really lovely, spring inspired colours. I decided to just pick one as I am not much of a nail artist, infact I am useless at nails as you can see my nails are really short and messy!
I paired this with a lilac toned pink from Collection (2000) and a nude brown from Models Own. I thought it was very Spring - esque!

Have you tried any of their new polishes?

  1. Essie's Mint Apple Candy is a really fresh, spring color. It's so pleasing to look at. :) I recently tried Maybelline Colo Rama's Candy Apple & Wine Shimmer which is on the contrary really bright shades of red.
