Fight the snow with some fresh mint green - Barry M Mint Green and my little haul from Manchester

Hello my very dear fiends!

What a week! I was terribly busy this week with work and last friday my nephew had his confirmation, so this weekend was packed with family get togethers. Now I am finally back home and I can do what I enjoy most...paint my nails hehehe :-)
I have had a severe Lemming for MAC's Peppermint Patty, since it is such a beautiful spring mint color, but the catch is, it was a LE from last spring, so all you can do is jump into the piranha pool which is called ebay. So I have been on the lookout for a dupe and Barry M's Mint Green comes really close, it's not a spot on dupe, but I would say at least a 95% one. Good enough for me :-)
Of course, when I am on the lookout for one polish, others are bound to follow, so I grabbed a few other beauties from Barry M, Gosh and Sue Moxley. I will go ahead and swatch those lovelies for you in my next posts. Promised!

I think this is pretty darn close to MAC's Peppermint Patty, at least what I can tell from pics on the net

The polish is definitely on the runny side and the brush is a bit small, but I could manage perfectly well. The first coat looked streaky as hell, but after applying a thick second coat, everything got opaque and even. Weird.

I also noticed that the polish dried REALLY quick, we are talking drying time like the OPI Suedes, other matt polishes or CG Holo's. I don't know if it is just this one, I will check with the other two Barry M's...
