Nails of the Week: Essie’s Mojito Madness

Essie’s Mojito Madness

Essie’s Mojito Madness is another polish from Bikini So Teeny summer collection and in my opinion another must have and basically the star of the show.  This bright and creamy grass green polish is the business.  Mojito Madness is one of the few polishes that I have ever owned that after one coat it was good to go!  I did do two coats though, because it just didn’t feel normal not doing so, lolll.

Mojito Madness’ staying power was amazing as well.  I actually went about a week before I even saw one chip!!  This never happens with me, so to say I was impressed  is an understatement.

You know, Essie is slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite nail polish brands, which is odd to me because I never used to like it at all.  I feel they’ve really stepped their game up formulation wise and the color selection is massive!

Nails of the Week: Essie’s Bikini So Teeny

Essie’s Bikini So Teeny

When one of Essie’s summer collections, Bikini So Teeny hit the net, blogs went wild.  The one polish that was deemed the star of the show, was the collections namesake, Bikini So Teeny, and it is absolutely gorgeous!

To be completely honest, we all have a similar color in our collection.  It’s a beautiful sky blue, pastelly (yes, pastelly) kind of color… very Easter, very spring/summer appropriate.  It’s also a cream finish, (no shimmer, no sparkle), which is one of my FAV finishes.

In my defense, I only own one other polish in its family, Color Club’s Factory Girl, which is slightly lighter and really pretty, but the quality… meh.  So why not jump on the bandwagon!  I swear it took for ever to hit these streets in Bermuda and I literally stalked the pharmacies waiting for it to stock the shelves.

So was it worth the hype?  Yes!  But not at first.  After I applied the first coat, it was super streaky and blotchy, and the color just didn’t seem to suit my complexion AT ALL!  I trailed on however and slathered on the second coat… voila!  It was beautiful… I absolutely loved it!  Especially the way it popped off my summer tan.  What made it even better was the fact that I wore it for about four days before I saw the first chip.  To me… thats amaze-balls and absolutely unheard of!

In the end, I’m glad I picked it up and I’m pretty sure I’ll be whipping it out again as soon a spring hits… but I’m in no hurry for that, as I’m super excited and looking forward to the sexy, sultry, deep dark, and vampy vixen colors fall and winter will bring!
