One of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte, the now closed M5, had $5 mojito night during the Spring and Summer. They had a fabulous patio and it was always a great time. When I spotted Essie’s Summer 2012 Bikini So Teeny display at CVS I was immediately attracted to Mojito Madness because of the color. But as soon as I read the name, I knew I had to have it!
Mojito Madness is a beautiful kelly green creme. Maddy on Twitter alerted me to the fact that this polish is the exact green of the Starbucks straw! Not only is the color lovely, the formula is fantastic. I used just 2 coats in my swatch.
This is a great polish for Summer and it’s a nice change from all the neons I’ve been wearing lately. I’m impressed with both collections Essie has released recently!
Slightly off topic but when I purchased this polish at CVS the lady that was ringing me up said something along the lines of “is this nail polish magic?” I was very confused by her statement. Then she proceeded to explain that for $9 she thought this nail polish should do something really special, suggesting $9 for a nail polish was crazy. Not only did I think her comments were slightly rude, I really wanted to invite her over for a tour of my nail polish stash and see her reaction!
Anyway, sorry for the side story, I just thought it was amusing! There are more swatches of this lovely polish (that is totally worth the money…) below the jump. And stay tuned for Katie’s review of Bikini So Teeny
