MAC Peppermint Patti swatches - when a lemming disappoints

Have you even been there - a lemming is finally yours, and in the first glance you realize that it does not at all like the mouthwatering swatches you have seen of it...?
That is where I am with MAC Peppermint Patti!
All though it is a pretty green, it is a subdued and slightly dusty one - not at all bright and minty, like I thought it would be...
The formula is nice enough, the application is easy and the dry time is good - this is 2 coats without a top coat...
Later today I will show you the nail art I did on Peppermint Patti, and it didn't change my mind a bit...

So, have you been in the same situation, and what polish was it...?

  1. Well, the colour is not my colour at all, but Peppermint Patty makes me think of Linus playing the piano and Lucy sreaming at Charly Brown and Snoopy :o).

    Kind regards,
    Elena

  2. It is lovely, but I understand your disappointment. It is more seafoam green than mint green.

  5. Oh no, and you wanted it for so long :/ That's a shame.
    I can't remember being that disappointed in a lemming, but I did get somewhat surprised when I received OPI's Absolutely Alice. I didn't realize it had little pieced of goldglitter in it. It didn't disappoint though :)

    1. Indeed I did, and I was so happy to find it at a decent price - until it arrived, that is LOL
      I know gold can be disappointing to you - but glitter in the same sentence makes it so much better ;)

  6. Yes, I had some disappointment situations, so I just thought "OK, I will surely be useful for my nail art manicures!" :-) But, I like Peppermint Patti, it doesn't look like a big disappointment to me :-)

    1. Yes, it happens fairly often, but it was the first time with a true lemming LOL
      I'm glad you like her :)

    1. Well, that's life, it's no disaster, it's far from ugly :)

  8. This looks like a really pretty polish but I totally understand how it would be disappointing if you were wanting a bright green polish! Have a lovely weekend :)

    1. Thanks a lot - and the same to you :)

  9. No, I haven't got that problem. I always buy nailpolish in the shop without seeing swatches of it, so I can't be dissapointed ;-). I like it though.

    1. I don't have that opportunity - so I have to buy 99% online :)

  10. Not really my colour but it is super cute, absolutely ^^

  11. This happened to me when I finally got the OPI Black Spotted. It was really disappointing and the application was messy. Doing water spots manually comes out so much nicer.

    1. Yes, I think I would have felt the same way about that one, so I resisted the hype :)

  12. I like dusty colors, and I like this one. Yes, a few times. The last one was Linda Johansen's Tango.

    1. Ohh, I prefer bright toned colors - and I guess that's part of hoarding polishes hahaha

      Slet
    2. I like bright colors too, and dark, and pastel, and flakies, and holographic, and... I think hoarding has made me like more and more :-)

      Slet
    3. yes, that's clearly the case for me too, today I love colros I neverf would have dreamt of wearing!

      Slet
  13. Aw...it's still pretty though! :D

    1. I agree, only not as pretty as I thought it would be hahaha :)
