The Digit-al Dozen Does Monochrome: Minty Flowers

*Nothing to Disclose*
Hi Everyone, it's Day 2 of the Digit-al Dozen Does Monochrome! One color scheme I really wanted to use was mint. I love mint. Mint anything. I've been a fan of it for some time now, and it doesn't help that everyone seems to be on trend with it also - so clothing, household items - if you're in mint, I will buy you. I have a wide collection of mint polishes, all of different shades. Some are pure mint, almost white-ish - others have a blue-ish tint to them. I love them all. If a polish comes out in mint, I will buy it. So for today's design, I decided to pair some flowers and dots with mint.

The two minty colors I used here are China Glaze Too Yacht To Handle and China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint. I loved the contrast between the two. I went with polka dots for my pinky and ring fingers, and did my middle and pointer with some flowers. I did lay down a base of OPI Glints of Glinda for my flowers. I ended up topping it all off with a coat of Northern Lights for just the right amount of sparkle.

I love how this turned out, and wore it for a couple days because I loved it so much! That says a lot for me :) What is your favorite shade of polish to wear?
