Firstly, let me say that if I had to choose, Essie would be my favourite nail polish brand. I don't own an outrageous amount (considering my stash is only around 120 bottles), but my Essies far outnumber the other brands. With that said, I've got a mani to show you using two Essie polishes: my recently acquired Mojito Madness, and Mesmerise.
You probably won't believe me, but this is one coat of Mojito Madness. Yes, ONE COAT! Without giving it a thought I had expected to have to do 2 coats, but after just one (and not a particularly thick one) I couldn't even come up with a valid reason to add a second coat! This polish is such a beautiful colour; add the flawless formula and this one's a huge WIN in my books.
Anywho, I'm (not really) sorry to say that I loved my stripes and dots so much last time that I couldn't help but do it again. I did, however, do thinner stripes and smaller dots. Apologies in advance for the lighting, the sun would come out for two minutes and I'd adjust my camera accordingly, and right before I could take the picture it would go away, so I'd set my camera and then the sun would come back out... you get the idea.
Is anyone else getting a polo shirt vibe from this?
I must say that I do like this one better than my previous stripes & dots mani; what do you think?
