As the spring, and now summer, collections continue to roll out, my green-loving heart has been palpitating over all the mint-y goodness I keep seeing. From Dermelect Au Courant to Sally Hansen Pique Side, I can’t get enough. So, here are eight more mint green nail polishes to satisfy your spring green needs.

China Glaze At Vase Value ($7.50, is pale and creamy with hints of Tiffany blue. It has a china-esque feel. (3 coats)

    I was just wearing a mint gel last week. Didn’t know I was on trend. ;)

  2. Abby says:

    Illustrious is so pretty! This post makes me wish mint greens flattered me, haha!

  3. CoolAllure says:

    Mint green is everywhere :)

  4. Viktoria says:

    My “mint-for-all-time” is China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint. The formula is far from perfect, but the color is fresh and clean and delicate.

  5. Liz says:

    Wow I’m loving that Formula X Unmistakeable, such a delicate color. Great post!

  6. Liz says:

    The revlon entice looks a lot like chanel jade… Any thoughts?

  7. NJA8168 says:

    I love mint for Spring/Summer ever since I scored Chanel Jade. I have a couple dupes because I don’t want to ‘waste’ it but nothing really comes close to that Canel ‘secret shimmer’!

    I’ve loved mint for Spring/Summer ever since I scored Chanel Jade. I have a couple dupes because I don’t want to ‘waste’ it but nothing really comes close to that Chanel ‘secret shimmer’! Though very different, YSL Imperial Jade is also a favourite.

  9. Lisa N. says:

    Nice mint picks! Love the color on all of them.

  10. Cindi says:

    I love all of these. Green is my color. Right now I’m stuck on Mint Glace by L’Oreal and Mint Condition by Sally Hansen,and Song Of Summer by Sinful Colors.

  11. Anna says:

    Great to see them all side by side. I love my Barry M mint but all these look fab. Particularly Morgan Taylor -still need to get me some of this brand

  12. JDV says:

    Gorgeous, all of them!

  13. NailPolishFan says:

    China Glaze Refresh Mint and Sally Hansen’s Mint Sorbet are two of my favorite mint greens. I like the Sinful Colors, Revlon, and Maybelline ones the most because they are easier to find and are a cheaper on the wallets. I actually like pastels, brights, and emerlads. Do neons count as a bright?

  14. steffy says:

    Love me some minty green goodness! Some of my favorites besides those you mentioned are Revlon Eclectic, Sinful colors Open Seas and Pistache , SH Jaded Sour Apple and Mint Sorbet, Spoiled Toad-ally Amazing, WnW I Need a Refreshmint (the original, before they made it more blue), China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On (great name too!), Julep Dianna, and probably a couple others hiding at the bottom of my stash. Currently spring cleaning it, too :)

  15. Mary Liberti says:

    I love these polishes but what about Essie Mint Candy Apple? It’s a classic!

  16. valentina says:

    Sqweeeeee!! I LOVE mint green!! Do you know how At Vase Value compares to For Audrey?

  17. Elena says:

    You’re missing my favorite, Essie’s Mint Candy Apple! :)

  18. Wendy Wise says:

    Love this! Have you tested butter London’s “Fiver?” It’s divine.

  19. Lorraine says:

    Super pretty swatches! I love the ones that lean aqua, like Sephora X Unmistakable. I’d love to see a comparison of ChG to For Audrey, the brand’s classic Tiffany blue. Glad you mentioned SHCSM Pique Side- I finally saw it in store and it seems to have a faintly shimmering gold dust- a microshimmer?- running through the bottle. Are my eyes playing tricks on me or is there secret shimmer in Sally Hansen CSM now?

    • Hi Lorraine! I mentioned the subtle gold shimmer in my Pique Side review. It isn’t super strong on the nail but in direct light, you can see it. For Audrey is deeper and more green than At Vase Value. I won’t be posting a comparison swatch but they aren’t at all similar to my eye.

  20. DEBBIE BELL says:

    Oh my goddness..They are all so gorgeous!!!! I usually didnt go for mints..till last summer & its the most complimented color I wear! Strangers tell me they love my polish…so I have been wearing them like crazy! Will be purchasing the china glaze & Patricia I have found..the blue based ones look best on me! Thanks so much Michelle…always on point:)

  21. Lorraine says:

    Just to clarify, I meant to ask for a comparison of the ChG At Vase Value to ChG For Audrey. I am thinking from the pics that For Audrey will be a tad more green/teal leaning. And any comparison you decide to do will be most welcome! Thanks.

  22. Christine says:

    What a great selection, I would wear them all, my favorite though is Sinful Colors Nice Stems. Favorite in my stash: Picture Polish Siren Song which is more of a seafoam though and ILNP Princeton (a holo).

  23. Medusa says:

    How does China Glaze At Vase Value compare with China Glaze For Audrey?

  24. Chris says:

    I just bought Revlon Entice! I’m happy to hear that the formula is good. I also own Sinful Nice Stems, but the formula is streaky and a bit difficult to work with, IMO.

  25. kel says:

    i just got a manicure this weekend with this minty shade and i love it. mine tends toward a brighter mint but i can’t stop staring at my hands:)

  26. Phyrra says:

    I really like At Vase Value

  27. Jinnie Femme says:

    i totally love all of these spring greens.this color for me shouts happy!!
