the perfect mint paint

23 May

I’m on the hunt for the perfect mint paint.

I’ve actually already tried about 10 colors, with still no luck.

This is what I’m looking for

The above color is actually Robins Nest by Ben Moore. But of course with lighting and camera settings it’s a beautiful mint color. Which I must have!

BTW I tried Robins Nest and it’s way too dark for the space and of course not mint.

This one is Spearmint Stick by Behr…pretty right? well the swatch is almost fluorescent green. Not exactly what the photo reads. But I still love this color and want it!

    I used BM Healing Aloe and it is a nice mint color, depending on lighting can looks like a light tiffany blue or seafoam green or mint.

    Behr sea cap is a nice mint shade when painted on, a bit of a blue tinge to bring down the fluorescent feel.
