NOTD: Essie Mojito Madness

Feeling wild?  Essie’s Mojito Madness is satisfying my cravings for a hot nail polish colour this summer.

Mojito Madness is a creamy kelly green colour that is very bright and bold.  I’m not sure if Essie has ever done a colour similar to this one as they are mostly known for their pastels.  When I first got the Bikini So Teeny summer 2012 collection this was the colour that I was so excited to try.  I don’t really have any greens in my collection, I have a ton of pinks and blues but greens are a colour that I’m lacking (I have China Glaze’s In The Lime Light which is a neon green colour but dries matte and starts chipping in less than a day).

The shade is basically what you see is what you get, it’s a solid colour with no glitter or shimmer.  After two coats of the polish the colour was opaque and actually quite glossy.  I finished off the manicure with a coat of OPI’s Top Coat on top.  It is a fun summer colour and when I look at it it reminds me a lot of limes.  The name is fun too and I could definitely see myself sipping some mojitos in the summer sun with this shade on.

If you are into greens I would pick this one up.  I haven’t seen a colour like this in a long time, I find that usually greens are either more pastel or bright neon, it’s not everyday where a colour like this one comes along, especially from Essie.
