Essie Mojito Madness – is a yellow based green creme polish. First, let me say – sorry for interrupting my Zoya nail polish marathon but I HAD to tell you guys about this polish. It is part of Essie Summer 2012 Collection and is so spanking new that I bought this baby at a retailer while it was being put onto shelves! I am soooo in love with this shade of green and it will most likely end up on a favourite list at some point. Just look at it – what’s not to love? Seriously this is the best green nail polish I own to date – and I NEEDED to blog about it ASAP because I didn’t want you guys to miss out on getting it! As soon as I saw this polish – I immediately thought of my friend Holly aka MissHollyBerries because green is her favourite colour! By the way – you guys should definitely check out her blog – she is awesome!
This polish looks beautiful on all skin tones and it is probably the only green polish that might end up on my toes – that’s how much I LOVE it! It’s been a lonnnngg time since I have seen a green like this – Essie Pretty Edgy is darker for anyone wondering – will do a blog post comparing the two in the future as well.
This is a true summer green polish and if you are a green nail polish lover you NEED this in your life!! When I wear green polishes I usually get interesting looks from people, including family and friends – which is why in my opinion green polish = confidence, simply because not everyone has the self confidence to wear it!!! Don’t you agree??
The application was a dream to work with on top of it being so splendid! It was opaque on two coats and dried with a shiny finish (which is typically of Essie polishes in general). The colour of the polish reminds me of limes as well which makes the name of the polish aptly suited! For some reason, I can see myself on a beach, drinking my coconut water and just staring at my Essie Mojito Madness nails while rocking the craziness out of a coral/pink bikini – hey a girl can dream can’t she? LOL.
